We have stayed here a number of times . The rooms are spacious and quiet, the central courtyard with flower beds and trees is always refreshing. The staff are very helpful and the restaurant is good. The Botanic Gardens are across the road, the University close by and central Dunedin ten minutes walk. Altogether a delightful spot
Thanks from our team for your delightful review of our hotel, facilities and staff. Your comments will serve as encouragement as we continue to strive for improvement to the guest experience. Many thanks and we hope to be of service to you again in the New Year.
Damp carpet in hall smelled strongly of mold & damp & room smelt damp. Had to open window/door to l den smell while we were in it. Dated & tired decor. Thin walls. We could hear conversation & then snoring of visitor in adjacent room! Worst Accor hotel ever stayed at and ridiculously overpriced for such poor amenities. Thankfully we only had one night booked. Would never stay at this property again. Feel property is falsely portrayed on website.

An overnight stop in Dunedin proved more than just that. The town had some beautiful architectural gems. The railway station is amazing. I took heaps of photos. Ulverston House built in 1906 by a very wealthy family using an architect and much of the building materials from England. They then filled it with beautiful treasures from their travels. Therir daughter left it to the town as was. A guided tour is a must. Our hotel room was OK. We could exit the room to a beautiful garden which was a definite plus. We ate at a great American type eatery nearby called Filadelfio's Pizza and Pool. Great decor.
We where in Dunedin for my daughters graduation. Left it a little late to book accommodation, but luckily we where able to get into the Mercure. I certainly would stay again. The room was clean, bed very comfy and staff friendly.
Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. We are delighted that our contribution to the graduation festivities was up to scratch and hope to be of service to you again in the near future. Thanks for the feedback.
Upon arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner. We were over an hour early so our room was not ready which was no problem at all. We checked in anyway and left to return later in the afternoon. On return we picked up the key and put our things in the room. Still good so far. We went out with my daughter and her partner for a belated 21st dinner. After an enjoyable evening we stopped by on our way back to pick up some things from our room. Hmmmm seems that we had to park in almost the furthest park from our room. The reason, lets see there were 3 trailers taking up parks, what the heck !!!! Surely they belonged to other guests but why were they not asked to put them in parks at the rear? Foolishly we ventured out again and dropped my daughter and partner home. Back again and wouldn't you know it this time we were in the absolute last park a long way from our room. On our walk through the carpark we noticed two cars parking in the middle of parks. Maybe to avoid damage from others parking too close. I pointed this out to the person on the desk and mentioned the trailers too. They took the information on board but perhaps contacting the guests (you have there plate numbers linked to their rooms) and asking them to park reasonably would have been a better option. Never mind off to bed...Mattress was unsleepable. Huge rolloff to either side. So after a night of tossing and turning the noise of 3am showering and giant thumping footsteps didn't wake me because I had hardly managed to sleep. Checked out the next morning. Maybe should have taken the time to mention all the issues or maybe called the front desk after trying to sleep for a few hours, but we didn't , our mistake. Still mattress should have been replaced long ago and noise from other guests should have been dealt with, it was loud enough to hear from reception easily. Last time staying....ever. On a happy note the price was very good...but for a reason I now believe
Please accept our apology your stay was not enjoyable as it could have been. Had you let our reception staff know you were having issues during the night (someone is in attendance 24 hours a day), they would have gladly assisted you where possible or even transferred you to another room if that would have helped. This applies to any hotel you stay in - tell us while in house if you have an issue and give us the opportunity to remedy it as we genuinely want you to enjoy your stay. Regarding parking, it is free and on a first come, first served basis. We are one of the few hotels in Dunedin that provide free parking and there is no designated parking relating to guest rooms. A walk from any part of our car park to a guest room is a maximum of 2 minutes. We thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
Clean and tidy as you would expect, the room was quiet despite the hotel being very full. Staff were friendly and accommodating .Only down side was no aircon in the room , it was very hot ( 29.2 c ) during the day and muggy at night . Perhaps something Dunedin isn't accustomed to . Good car parking flat walk to restaurants and shops.
Thanks very much for your lovely review detailing your experience at our hotel. It is true Dunedin rarely has really hot days during summer such as you experienced - less than a handful in fact. We apologise this dampened your stay. For our readers, you can approach the reception team who will provide a fan to cool down your room. Thanks for taking the time to post.
We enjoyed exploring the gardens that stayed open late and preferred the quiet location for our stay. Great advice and able to store our luggage. Suited our needs perfectly. Breakfast was good and parking was no problem.
Thanks ever so much for your accurate and kind review. The staff here work exceptionally hard to get the experience right for every guest. We are delighted we were able to meet most of your needs.
