Mercure Dunedin Leisure Lodge
Ranked #27 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Located by the attractive Botanic Gardens, this hotel is not central but nor is it very distant from downtown Dunedin. We had a large room with a settee and kitchenette. We particularly liked the bathroom. There was no air-conditioning. There is a main road passing the hotel and we did suffer some traffic noise; fortunately this part of Dunedin is apparently not busy overnight.

Dinner and breakfast were both good. So was service.

A very busy hotel but coped admirably with a number of tour groups during our stay. Restaurant was crowded but did not feel "packed in". Plenty of good food, plenty of staff clearing tables and well run overall. Accommodation clean and comfortable. Position great. Opposite botanic gardens but a bit far from the steepest street in the world if you want an early morning walk. would definately recommend.

This hotel is right on the edge of Dunedin and opposite the Botanical Gardens which I have to say were very good. The rooms were clean and tidy and there was a kitchen area with fridge and microwave but no hot plates. Basically good value for the money but only criticism is the free wifi offered. It don't last long!!!!!

We spent 2 rainy days and nights at the Mercure. The larger than normal rooms and comfortable furnishings (including a very comfortable bed) made the stay more enjoyable than it would otherwise have been.

While the motel is just off one of the main roads into Dunedin, and only a few minutes from the centre of town, it is nonetheless very quiet. The rooms are built around a large and beautiful lawn/garden area. There is ample car parking space.

Our room was well furnished - including table and chairs and a sofa. Large TV and reasonable range of satellite TV stations. Bathroom was a good size and very clean. Only complaint was the cost of the internet - $30 per day after the first 30mins of free access.

The room cost was very reasonable ($85/night). Excellent value given the size and quality.

We would be very happy to stay here again on our next visit to Dunedin..

We stayed in room 408 for 1 night in Feb 2014. Room had 2 comfortable double beds and was clean and spacious. Outside door on to a garden/courtyard area. Fair distance from the centre of town and located on the main road in to the city but traffic noise was not a problem. Walk across the road to the lovely Botanic Gardens. Had dinner at McGavins restaurant, very nice meal and friendly wait staff. Would stay again.

Room was a good size, clean tidy and staff were friendly, parking was easy.
The breakfast was okay. Not a major but only two towels in the room for two adults.
We used a small packet of plunger coffee and then discovered we had to pay for it - really!
