« Good »

As this is almost next door to the world famous Botanic garden it is very convenient for keen gardeners. Meals and drinks a bit expensive. Museum and university facilities within waking distance. Of Easy access to other parts of Dunedin by local bus

« Friendly, clean & convenient »

Friendly accommodation staff. Clean and convenient location. Great value for price. Rooms clean and comfortable. Dunedin has much to offer those visiting Otago peninsula to see beautiful wildlife and scenery.

« Budget accommodation »

The hotel was average but clean. The staff were helpful but not necessarily that knowledgeable. Close to botanic gardens which are great and probably makes a good family friendly hotel. Quite a walk into town but was in a nice quiet area

« Useful stop over »

A useful stop over en route Te Anau to Christchurch. One of few hotels in area with adequate parking. Although located next to a road junction this did not affect us and the gardens were appreciated. The Botanic gardens are just over the road and free for entry. Poor check in service.

« Privacy in Dunedin »

I have stayed at thisHotel 3 times this year and have always found the search at checking in out great and the Restaurant serves delicious "large" portion of food. The rooms are very comfortable androids that look into the Garden Court Yard are Quite compared to rooms facing the Road. They have always honoured the Room upgrade for Gold and Platinum Accor members for me.

« The day the bus came in. »

This hotel is run down and managed poorly. The room I was in had an adjoining door that was paper thin and the noise from the next room came straight in. Went to dinner on the first night and was treated like a child and told that they could not fit me in at all, the lady was rude. They had two buses in and the place was packed, so the regular customers were treated like dirt due to the greed of the bus customers. Rand room service and was told they could not cope so no dinner! Later room service rand back and decided to assist. The following night the same except room service was excellent. The last night all was Hormel. Due to the above, this removed my Accor Hotel discount for dinner and on exit from the hotel they were not prepared to consider this. A lesson in how to upset your best customers. Sorry never again.

« Poor experience »

This hotel was the first time in over 12 years being an Accor member I ran into trouble . They one offered one welcome drink wher every where els they offer one for you and one for you partner. I asked about it and was told despite it’s everywhere else there policy was just one drink. The staff at reception were not that welcoming. The food was ver good but the waiting staff leaved a lot to be desired. They lacked professional training.

« Grudging service »

The hotel is fine but the only Accor worldwide who grudgingly honors loyal guests. Never upgrades - the room we got stank of smoke. We got moved but not with grace. As an Accor Gold status holder we get a welcome drink. Every hotel, when 2 guests are booked, give two drinks. Mercure Dunedin gives one (on our last 2 stays). Any goodwill the hotel has by being an Accor property gets wiped out by its mean spirited nature. The loyalty program is more a business arrangement - you stay with us more and we will take care of you - yet Mercure Dunedin grudges any benefits. Will not stay again tho we come to Dunedin several times a year.

« Family stay »

Our family enjoyed a pleasant stay in Dunedin in winter. The room was comfortable (although a bit small - bit of a squash with all the luggage and winter items for a family of 4). We dined in the restaurant for dinner - food was superb and staff were friendly. Our rooms were all cleaned daily. Having the Botanical Gardens across the road with a kids playground was great - especially when the sun comes out. Supermarkets, restaurants, take-away and attractions all in easy reach.

« A great hotel to stay while in Dunedin »

A well located hotel set in beautiful surroundings with the Botanic gardens across the road and within walking distance of central Dunedin city. We had a large,very comfortable room leading to a beautifully kept garden area, very good meals in the dining room and friendly ,helpful staff and lots of parking space. What else could you want?

« I always stay here »

I always stay here when I'm travelling for Business, so it was a no brainer to stay here when I was travelling on holiday with my family! Being a Accor Hotel is great for my points, But that's not the only reason I keep coming back.

« Nice spot next to Botanical Gardens and close proximity to Otago Uni »

Friendly staff and very helpful, good parking, nice grounds to sit under the trees and relax with a drink. Rooms have balcony's. Older property but well kept and bathroom nice and modern / renovated. I was there during 30'C heatwave (rare) and no air cond (have heaters but no cooling). Staff supplied fans and room quickly cooled down. Would stay again...

We had a good night's sleep in a quiet, clean room and a good breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Dunedin and parking is free. We would definitely stay there again.

« Daily holiday »

One of our children live in North Dunedin. We therefore chose the Mercure Leisure Lodge for location. But there is so much more. Located beside the botanical gardens and a short stroll to the CBD it has park like gardens and our room opened up on to these. We had a picnic and enjoyed the summer weather. Facilities are great with an excellent restaurant offering barrister coffee. Highly recommend.

« Quiet, Restful Hotel Close to Botanic Gardens »

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

Rooms are good , but the beds could do with topper covers for comfort. but avoid eating dinner there. Food is average Only one drink coupon per couple.Bar area is good with some character.Easy car parking and close to the Botanical gardens.

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate your comments and will review them with a view to improvement. For readers, the drink coupon referred to is a benefit of an Accor Membership. A welcome complimentary drink is offered to the card holder, not each guest in the cardholder's party.
