Grand Mercure Hotel Review

Overview

This is a recently renovated (2017) 5 star hotel in the heart of Auckland’s tourist district. There is a restaurant and bar on the top level with excellent harbour views.

Location

The location is a 10/10 for tourists. It’s right at the foot of Auckland’s Queen Street, next to Britomart Station and Britomart shopping district, very close to the Ferry terminal and the Viaduct Harbour. Because of its location Grand Mercure Hotel offers excellent harbour views from many rooms.

Restaurants & Bars

Grand Mercures Vue restaurant is a 8/10. It offers international cuisine, in a smart casual environment with excellent views.

Attica Bar offers cocktails and city views.

Accommodation Standard

The standard of accommodation offered at Grand Mercure Hotel is a 9/10. The hotel underwent a major renovation and upgrade from a 4 star to a 5 star in 2017. The rooms are well furnished and the bathrooms feel luxurious. The lounge, restaurant, lobby and other shared spaces feel plush. Not quite on the same level as some others but still excellent.
