Day 26 Port Douglas to Sydney

A travel blog entry by heather-belfast


A lovely day and a nice drive back to Cairns. We stopped for a final photo call at Rex lookout. The flight went well and the transfer to the Mercure via the Air Train was fine. We walked the whole length of George Street, about 2km, down to Circular Quay and had our dinner at Phillips Foote- couldn't resist those T-bones. A brief last look over the …

Learning to slow down

A travel blog entry by kim.orlesky


Somewhere someone has a list of words used to describe me. I'm sure the list is plentiful, but I would not be surprised if on it one of the words contained "high-strung". I have always been a person in a hurry. I speak with rushed enthusiasm, I'm in a hurry to get to where I'm going - even if I don't know where that is quite yet. I have goals and …

    Central Sydney hotel

    Mercury is a beautiful hotel in central Sydney. It can be easily accessed by central station. It is surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants and pubs for a variety of places to check out.

    The rooms are beautifully done and the bathrooms are fantastic. If you are lucky enough to get a view room, I'm sure it is fantastic. Because the hotel is built on a corner street, many of the views are of Pitt St. Unfortunately I was stuck with the view of another building and looking down at PItt St

    A nice clean place, helpful and friendly staff. 15 minutes walking to Paramatta Westfield Mall, trains and ferry. Across the street to a few fast food places and Woolworth's. Breakfast not included but worth the price for the package, since kids eat free.

    Great service and with a smile!


    We stayed at the Mercure over New Years. We arrived early in the morning. I was prepared to drop my bags off, but the room was ready so we checked in early. The room was fairly spacious - it had a queen size bed, room safe, tv, fridge, iron, hair dryer, internet connection, air con controls. There is no mini bar, but they do have a "smart bar" on each floor which has much cheaper beer and wine than you would normally get in a mini bar. I thought this was a great idea.

    Great Sydney City Hotel


    Despite an initial problem where our child was not included in our booking & quote (despite our agent being given that information), the hotel gave us an upgrade to accommodate our daughter at no additional charge. Despite the busy city location, the hotel was quiet yet central & walking distance to Chinatown, Darling Harbour, and all trains and buses. The full buffet breakfast carried us through to dinner. Will stay here again.

    Hotel Great


    this hotel was great.

    4 boys went to sydney for a dirty weekend.

    close to oxford st and kings cross.

    friendly new zelaand staff at the counter.

    close to wild fm radio.

    great lifts as well.



    we were disappointed with the rooms for the price we paid. the breakfast was great though !!!!

    Right in the Middle of Town


    Right in the middle of downtown Sydney, this hotel is almost on top the hub of the City's transportation system - one which works well (unless you live in the suburbs). Buses to the Harbor and Circular Quay are cheap. Easy walking access to a wide variety of restaurants and cafes, as well as to the Monorail (suggest you get a day pass for the best value). Staff not all well trained to deal with equipment failure (no room phone for 2 days), but helpful with most issues. Huge breakfast buffet to meet the needs of travelers from nearly all food cultures, but pricey ($20 AUD), and you can't get just a cup of coffee). An outstanding coffee and pastry shop is located just outside the "back door", so the hotel probably feels no reason to offer alternatives. Interesting "sitting room" on every other floor, adjacent to the elevators - nice for relaxing and reading if you need a break from sightseeing. A clean and well-equipped room, but the smallest of any we stayed in during our trip. That being said, who spends time in their hotel room except to sleep?

    Good hotel - great transportation links


    I stayed at this hotel in May 2004 for 5 nights and found it very satisifactory.

    Worst service of any hotel I have been to


    I will never again visit the Mercure Central Sydney again as I found the service and the staff rude and obnoxious.

    It seemed to me that unless you were an international visitor the staff had no time for you.

    The meals were very overpriced and the twin share rooms were very small and confining.

    Top of George Street


    The Mercure was Ok to say the least. Location is the biggest problem.

    You're at the opposite end of Circular Quay, however, for the 4 nights that I was there, I had to walk the entire length of George Street everyday just to get my bearings on where everything was. There is nothing much by the hotel, by means of clothing stores, shoe stores etc. If you really want to go shopping then youre best bet is to stay closer to the middle of George Street. On the other hand, if youre just looking for a place to sleep than this is the hotel for you. The staff were OK, the room was Ok...overall it was OK.

    Great Location


    Hi, we were booked into Mercure and found it very handy to transportation around the city. We enjoyed walking to the Paddy Market and Darling Harbor. We rode busses down to the Quay/Rocks area. Rooms were fine - loved having a kettle to make our own tea!

    Mercure on Georget St. is just OK


    Just wanted to let Americans know what to expect, since I didn't. My travel agent booked me into this hotel, I had no idea where to stay. The place is OK. It's clean, the staff is nice, the rooms are decent. It's not a 5 star hotel by any means, I'd be hard pressed to even give it 4. My room was a little small and only had a double bed. The staff kept telling me it was a queen, but even the blanket had "dbl" written on the bottom on it. The point is: you'll feel very safe and somewhat comfortable here. But you won't be telling anyone what a fantastic hotle you stayed in. The location could be the big draw back. Or a huge plus. Depends what you need. It's not located near anything except the bus and train station. And it's practically on top of those (no noise though). So if you'll be catching trains to destinations outside Sydney a lot, this could be the place for you. If you want to hang out around the Opera House, you need to find a place closer. The buses are right outside the hotel and they are cheap and easy to get around on. But walking to the harbours and entertaining places all the time will kill your legs. But cabs are very easy to catch, Sydney seems to be like NYC in this respect. And it was easy to catch a cab right out in front of the hotel. If you've never been to Sydney, I'd say find a place closer to the Opera House. You'll be close to the resturants and ferries, which is where you'll end up heading. And if you'll be exploring outside Sydney, it's also very easy enough to get out and around from Circular Quay.
