Room, facilities and view all very good. Staff most helpful. Bit of a longer walk to CBD than anticipated but we used the shuttle a lot - it was invaluable. Pool a bit chilly but the spa was just right. Would definitely book again.

Excellent - the Mercure Harbourside was a great choice. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the shuttle bus service to the city every hour from 10 a.m. till 12 a.m. was brilliant.
