Mercure Dunedin Leisure Lodge
Ranked #26 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Reviewed 27 May 2013

As the eldest has been studying in Dunedin a few years now we have stayed at several hotels. This has become the firm favourite. Free on site parking and only two stories high. I'm not sure how old it is but there are not really any new hotels in Dunedin anyway! It has been refurbished well with totally new bathrooms and double glazing. It is opposite the botanic gardens, there is some traffic noise and a long walk to town as a down side. The staff have been really helpful every time. Comfy bed and pillows, complimentary plunger coffee.

Stayed there again as it was a great price for our family. No frills, the interior of the rooms is just starting to become a bit dated but it was still comfortable and clean so no complaints there. The location is good as it's just a couple minutes walk from "fatty lane" which is a street with all the major takeaway eateries. Car parking was a bit of a let down as we stayed on one side of the property and the only empty parks were on the other side of the complex but if you get there early enough there should be no problem. Value for money wise though it's a no brainer and we are staying there again next week!

Room Tip: Rooms on the left side of the building are quieter as they are further from the main roads.

We were going on train next day to Middlemarch, so lovely clean & peaceful place to stay, great sleep, no traffic noise. Loved the little express breakfast available in mornings. Great outlook on to lawn & gardens.

I booked this through Accor and it was the cheaper of the 2 x hotels. I was very impressed in that the room was far better than I expected and really good value for money. (also comparable to a decent motel) The only 2 x things holding it back from being perfect were that I had to carry my bags up some stairs and along some long coridoors which wasn't a major for me but if I was an older person I should ask for a room on the ground floor. It was also quite wet outside and I had to park a bit far away from the man entrance as there isn't a covered unloading area. Apart from that I plan to stay there regularly from now on.

Stayed as part of a tour group. Rooms clean and comfortable. Food tasty and varied. Very handy for the Botanic Garden which we didn't have time to explore completely. We walked to and from city centre, level going but quite a long way. Surrounded by University accommodation but no problems. WiFi only in lobby area and definitely pedestrian!

Room Tip: Over looking the garden seems best

We stayed for 2 nights. We had breakfast the first day, but the selection was ordinary and the service was average. So we didn't return the next day.
The corridor was quite noisy, and we could hear the adjacent rooms at times.
The location was good for us, it was easy to get to, but really, its a fairly standard property. No real problems - room was clean, reception staff were nice.
Having said that, the room rates reflect what is being offered.

We stayed for 2 nights and found it fantastic. Gemma was on reception and she was very helpful and accommodating. The location was great for us as we were attending a concert.

The room was modern and comfortable. We were able to have a late check out and they serviced our room at a time convenient to us.

I would defiantly return and recommend this hotel.
