Reviewed 11 October 2013

We went to Maitland on a quick visit and wanted to pamper ourselves. The Mercure is at the higher end of the price spectrum and when we first booked in I was rather disappointed by the standard of the room. It was roomy but lacked character. The bathroom had a vanity that looked like it came from the land of the giants. The real value came with the sleep quality. The bed was comfortable and the room was wonderfully quiet. I will stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 120. It was in a back corner of the complex, north facing and very very quiet.
