Stayed here one night on the way up North. This motel is in a central location and offers various room types. We asked for a ground floor room due to problem with stairs. Got the room requested but with a shower in bath. We persevered but if we can't do stairs we can't climb into a bath. The bed was unfortunately uncomfortable and rickety. Dined in the restaurant and enjoyed both dinner and breakfast. Reasonable priced accommodation just out of town.

Have stayed at the Mecure Charlestown several times. It is a modern clean and well located hotel. Well priced and free parking. I have always found the staff to be friendly and professional to your needs. I just hope they are able to bring back their beautiful Breakfast in their restaurant as soon as possible. That will happen as soon as Politicians get out of our lives. The beautiful pool area is to enjoyed.

We were staying purely to be close to John Hunter Hospital. And being only 10 minutes from the hospital, with take away restaurants close by, and the reliable Mercure was our first pick. We definitely did not regret our decision. After a drive up from Sydney and a long 14 hour wait at the hospital, we were greeted by a friendly young lady - who I wish I remembered her name - she was incredibly helpful, and kind. Although our trip was short stayed, I just had to leave a review. The rooms were clean, comfortable & had all your essentials. The beds were comfortable, and despite being the middle of winter - hot water was still scorching at 5am the next morning ! :) Would definitely recommend staying here, and should we need to stay here again we certainly will.

What a disappointment.!! Not Accor standard!! As an Accor member for many years. I am now questioning of ever renewing as the Accor standard not guaranteed and would be reluctant to recommend when standard was so low. I was extremely disappointed to stay here. Checked in… 19/6 reception lady was not friendly, very process driven and didn’t make eye contact at all. Didnt seem to want to be there. Went to room, to find it freezing (it was cold wet weather) but there was a draft under door which the small heating system couldn’t compete against. I had to use the spare blanket to block the draft under door- or I would of frozen. (Photos attached). I then had to get a blanket from my car to put on my bed to keep warm. Then to find the shower head being held together by a washer (very concerning) and no hot water (photos attached). I rang the reception to ask if there was any tricks to make it hot, the same reception lady answered and said would call me back. No return call ever came. Upon check out I explained to the receptionist that it was disappointing and the reasons of no hot water, shower head and the draft.. he also couldn’t make eye contact and just said I’ll pass it on. Overall wouldn’t recommend this place to stay.
