Mercure Geelong Reviews
Geelong luxury Jan 25, 2009
Geelong is not known for having all that many luxuries, particularly since Melbourne is so close. But there is a Mercure in town. In fact, you can't miss it, as it sits as the highest building in town on top of a hill. But don't think you will get a good deal for it being in a small city, away from the waterfront, and at the fringe edge of the town center. I ended up having to stay here by force as it was the only place actually open with a vacancy that I could find past midnight.
The room itself is nice and on par with other four-star hotels. Rooms facing the waterfront would have had a nice view over the city. My window faced the sports stadium...not bad either. There was no breakfast offered and no Internet. Parking was expensive as well. But the room was a good size and I slept well after that busy day of long-distance driving. Guests could easily find restaurants and cafes within a short walking distance. And a walk to the city center would only take ten minutes or 20 minutes to the waterfront. With a car, you could get there before you'd even realize it.
