Reviewed 9 July 2013

One night stay with late check-in and early check-out. Room was spacious, well presented, and clean. Bed was bearable but not comfortable. Staff were courteous and efficient. Location was suitable for us as travellers but is very much on the western outskirts of Maitland and in a predominantly industrial and bulky goods area. Great location for doing business, not so great for tourists.

Reviewed 15 June 2013

Staff were very friendly and helfpul, rooms were a good size with good facilities, easy to find and park at... was overall a very good experience.

Only two minor downsides to be aware of:
- while marketed as the 'Mercure Maitland' the hotel is actually in Rutherford, which is 10min drive out of Maitland
- depending where you stay in the complex there can be noise from the highway - only a problem if you are a light sleeper (my mum noticed but I didn't!) - just make sure they put you in a quiter room

The room was in excellent condition and the motel appears relatively new. Quick check in and checkout. Very comfortable bed, very clean room and bathroom. Off the highway so there was no traffic noise. Slept like a log.

Have to be honest I was a little disappointed, room had a musty smell to it. Parking which obviously is not easy to police meant I couldn't park directly outside of the room. I expected a little more from this property at the price for the room. Staff the next morning thoroughly lovely when I had a few enquiries about the surrounding area.
