Reviewed 30 June 2013

Full resort facilities at half the cost of a more central resort.

The staff were very helpful and offered a discounted rate without beng asked. The room rate was amazing compared to similarly equipped resorts in more central locations.

We were here for one night only with no reservation. We were given an excellent ground floor suite with a spa and two queen beds for our family of four right next to the pool. Even though it is winter the kids still managed a swim in the heated pool.

The beds were comfortable, the room was spacious and the items provided such as shampoos and body lotions were fine. There is no mini bar but an excellent range of teas and coffee is provided. There is a full service bar/lounge in the main building.

We had dinner in the restaurant and the full buffet breakfast the next morning. The dinner was fine but we would have appreciated it if the plates had been pre-warmed as the meals were only luke warm when served.

We would definitely stay here again.

Be warned though if you are watching your budget because they do take a holding fee of the room rate plus $100 but you still pay your full bill on checkout. The holding fee is returned later. This is standard practice at quite a few places but if it catches you unaware it could cause problems.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues try to get a ground floor room as there are no lifts. If you have kids a...

My husband and I stayed one night and were pleased with staff service. It requires a bit of walking to get from the carpark to the reception to the hotel rooms (not all in one complex). The quality of the food was excellent for both dinner and lunch. We enjoyed sitting in the spa (it is winter!) and although there's nothing to do within walking distance, except play golf, it was a relaxing time....

First day and OMG everyone fantastic. I travel a lot and generally you may get 1 or 2 where you can see just a job, here not, everyone is absolutely lovely and you can see it is real. We had tea at resort and Brad was our waiter and he was outstanding, an absolute credit to Mercure, don't ever loose him :-) girls that came in later were lovely as well. Fantastic guys, keep up the great work
