Mercure Canberra offers excellent service and clean, nicely decorated rooms. The location is great, close to the city. The building is old but charming and well-maintained. The only downside is the lack of a lift, which made carrying luggage up the stairs a bit challenging. Despite this, the outstanding customer service makes up for it. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Canberra.

Not trendy but good value, given the very moderate price we paid. Staff were great. Our room was basic but perfectly clean and adequate. However we were a bit disappointed that it was a bit compact and we only had a view of a fire escape. In hindsight, we should have paid more to get a courtyard room. Despite the rather ordinary look of the bar and bistro, the food and service was very good. We had the daily specials on both nights of our stay....I wasn't expecting much but the meals were very good and excellent value. The kitchen staff do an amazing job.

For breaks away with a disabled husband and two dogs, this hotel is ideal. They are considerate, helping me with our luggage, dog crates etc. The courtyard of the pet-friendly rooms is well kept and tidy. There is a bin outside for dog bags. The bed is comfortable and the room is clean. It isn't ultra-modern, but we weren't looking for ultra-modern, we needed practical. The breakfast is good. It's an opportunity to stay in one of Canberra's oldest buildings. We have stayed several times and we will be back. Thank you

The room is very spacious, food is delicious and good variety at the Bistro. Beautiful garden and decors, secure and peaceful, vintage vibes. Loved it. And the option to charge your EV.

We love this hotel and try and stay here every time we visit Canberra. The rooms are spacious and feel homely with warm colours and decor. The loft rooms are our favourite as they provide great space for a young family of four. Breakfast was sumptuous as always, and there was plenty of it given how busy it was both mornings. Though I would say the coffee machine was sub-par and neither of us even bothered to grab one on the second morning as we couldn't drink them the first day. The sofa bed could do with replacement due to the mattress sagging terribly but it was fine for small children. We will certainly be back again.
