Mercure Canberra

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The basics: big room, clean, above average freebie continental breakfast, free parking, a very good value It's a little aways from town center. It would be a long walk to the sights (e.g. Parliament) but a short drive. No nearby stores. They didn't have freebie WiFi or internet access. Get clear directions to drive to the hotel because of one-way roads esp. at night. The hotel has a little history which is nice if you like that sort of thing. There's a pretty little courtyard.

Great room, great location. Nothing is more than a few minutes driving distance away and a lot is within walking distance. Historic old (by Australian standards) hotel with a beautiful interior courtyard.

Location was great and easy to find. Rooms were large and comfortable but having hot breakfast items cost more which was unexpected.
