“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

No problems with hotel very comfortable rooms well appointed opening on to a very nice garden, food of good quality albeit the evening meal was slow due to the fact that each meal was individually served but was of very good quality served by very attentive and polite staff , spent 3 nights in Dunedin not one of my favorite New Zealand cities, good job there was a test match on at the Dunedin Oval cricket ground otherwise would have been a bit boring. but if you have to visit the town a good hotel to start with.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with garden view.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Room was clean and tidy, although the toad that it faced was busy with traffic and traffic lights. Made for a noisy night and early morning.
Restaurant was fine and breakfast was plentiful.
Access was easy with non stirs on lower level
Too far for us from town. Catch a bus or hire a taxi.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

Unusual place, lodge-like appearance, located off-centre, almost half an hour's walk from the Octagon. Everything is spotlessly clean and the staff were smiling and helpful. Bedroom was comfortable and the shower/basin/lavatory ensuite space was modern and well-equipped. Pretty garden; and breakfast offered a wide choice.
The real beef is the poor WiFi, with only the reception areas covered. These days business people need all bedrooms to have WiFi. And the price of the room should cover the cost, too. It is very frustrating to have to buy WiFi in small chunks!
Come on Mercure, sort this out!
But for the unhelpful WiFi situation this hotel would have been 4 stars.

Room Tip: Room facing the garden. No WiFi in most bedrooms, but some service in Room 206, close to reception a...

This hotel is sited in North Dunedin & is very close to the Botanic Gardens but not far from the city centre & only 5 minutes down to the North Road shops where there is a good selection of shops including a supermarket, chemist & cafe. It dosn't take long to get to any of the tourist attractions & only 30 minutes from the airport.
. It has very good free car parking & is set in a lovely garden setting-. being spring,all the flowers are out & from my room I had a lovely view of the garden.
The room was large with 2 queen sized comfortable beds, plenty of pillows & the usual hotel amenities. The bathroom was on the small side but had a good shower.
There are tea & coffee making facilities in the room & a free newspaper is delivered to your door every morning. The restaurant meal was excellent , we really enjoyed the food , as did other patrons dining that night.There is a well stocked bar & nice booths to sit & relax & view the garden. We found the reception & bar/wait staff very nice & pleasant & the room was well serviced every day. There is free WiFi in the bar area for 20 minutes or so but it is very annoying having to trapse up there whenever you want to use the laptop, especially at night. Overall though it is a very pleasant hotel to stay in & I will be staying there again when I visit Dunedin in the near future.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are very convenient but most rooms have a lovely view of the garden
