I booked the Mercure Perth for the weekend after looking around town the day before, as I was in town on business. We wanted a comfortable room for 3 adults and a 2 year old, as close to the city centre as possible and with a pool. Oddly enough I was given a walk-in rate that was better than the rates found on Wotif or even the hotel website, which is something I thought could never happen.
The good: We had a superior room which was very large for a standard hotel. The staff was incredibly efficient and pleasant, and the pool area was definitely good enough even though being on the roof, it was not that easy to access.
The not so good: The room was poorly lit combined with very little sunlight coming through the window. The decor was a bit on the fading side, as was the hotel in general – is this really a combination of brown, dark yellow and grey? The bathroom while spacious and in good condition was definitely showing its age, and the TV image quality was from the same time the bathroom was last renovated.
The breakfast: Located in an utterly uninspiring room, it offered reasonable variety but nothing to make you happy – mediocre at best. Fortunately for us we got it for free from the kind people at reception, so we can't complain too much. But I would hate to pay hotel rates for breakfast and get that in return.
Overall I can easily recommend the Mercure as it did score in what was important for us. But for a real breakfast I would walk to Miss Maud, 2 blocks away.
