Hi Guys! We loved our stay at the Mercure! The perfect weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our spacious Privilege room, and were very pleasantly surprised by the spa! We had dinner in the restaurant, which had lovely soft lighting and relaxing music playing. The wait staff were welcoming and attentive and very obliging. We had room service breakfast with was delicious and so much more relaxing than heading off quickly to breakfast somewhere else. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Mercure to friends or family. I would suggest that the kitchenette joinery be upgraded at some point in the future, to make the next guests' stay more breathtaking. Other than this point, we were very impressed by all aspects of our stay. Thank you so much Mercure Charlestown!

I have stayed in the king executive room 3 times. Room 229 is very spacious and with a great layout. Rooms 233 and 235 have amazing spas and views and are intimate although i have not stayed in these rooms. All the executive rooms have a nice bathroom with a use of cream tiles finished with stylish brown boarder tiles in a simple yet soothing pattern. The Jet baths are great and robes in the cupboard. These king rooms have balconies with a distant view of the Newcastle beach/port/city lights yet still beautiful. There is a pool which I haven't used, not great 4 laps really but one there which is leisurely. There are microwaves and toasters, but you have to ask for them. my wifi wasn't working in my room on one night but staff tries to make sure wifi works There is only a $1 deposit required at check in which is great for the rest of your trip and there is a phone in room. Bar & Restaurant which I haven't used but good to have as the buffet breakfast menu looks great. Dinner meals maybe a bit pricey. The hotel is close to a shopping centre with a large variety/cloths/retail shops and grocery stores. Relatively close to Newcastle cbd. and a good rest spot if you are feeling tired on your way to sydney or further south in the last few hours of your trip. Mercure's purple sign is renowned and great to notice of a place to rest which you can see brightly from the highway as you drive past which is familiar and to put you at ease as you drive with fatigue and notice the sign.

Asked for king bed to be split. Don’t want to share a bed with 12 yr son. It wasn’t, took half an hour to separate beds. Room had stale smell to it & dirty coke can with cigarette butts on balcony outside
