I've stayed at the Mercure North Melbourne a number of times for work and wasn't very happy with my stay this time. The whole hotel smells of paint/turps as they are doing renovations on some rooms and corridors at the moment. The bathroom in my room was very small and there was no bench space at all at the basin...

Perfect location when needing the Women's Hospital just a short walk. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. When taking a shower the water does go over the top of the glass and wet the bathroom floor and counter. The room felt spacious and wasn't noisy. Staff were friendly and accommodating, especially with car parking and not knowing the discharge time...

I stayed over night, decent little room, as described. Bathroom appears to have had a recent make over. Hotel in general is a bit tired looking but provides a comfortable stay at a decent rate. Staff were friendly. Covered parking at an OK rate. I didn't eat at the hotel cafe but they made decent coffee. Lots of little places...

I wasn't sure about staying at this hotel after reading some of the reviews online. Overall it was certainly average, although I wouldn't go so far to say that it was as terrible as some suggest. I've stayed in plenty of worse accommodations before. The place had a motel style feel about as opposed to a hotel. Certainly the place...

Thought I was in a country town. Place was like a time warp from the 1970's. Room was small, very basic and definitely well past needing upgrading. Bathroom was ok but was also in need of upgrading. The only thing that looked like it had been done to the room this millenium was a flat screen TV and Wifi.
