Great apartment close to wedding I attended.Posted Mar 18, 2015
Pros: Very comfortable and modern with a drive-in garage + tidy kitchen and open plan living that could be closed off too. Nice outdoor area + green view.
Cons: The bathroom lock wasn't working on that occasion, other than that, it was perfect.
Location: Vineyards & wineries, wedding areas, golf course, cheese shops a chocolate and fudge shop was great. Also adrenaline activities and beautiful scenery.
Great modernistic apartment suitable for everyone. Loved the open plan concept that could be closed off as and where needed. Quick and easy service from collecting key + garage access and returning + available brochures of the area. Location is great as close enough to tourist areas such as wineries and vineyards but still out of the way to be quiet and relaxing. Saw 3 kangaroos as we were driving into the area! Very trim, tidy well maintained area in general and really liked the privacy hedges as driving into the garage. Very nice quiet area, close to attractions such as the Irish Pub, Chocolate and Fudge factory, Smelly Cheese House, great area + stay. At the apartment, loved the garage area, it had shelves where you could store things, lots of cupboards and storage inside, hair dryer was probably the best I've used from an apartment/hotel in a long time! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely be staying here again for my next trip into the Hunter Valley. Loved the apartment, loved the area - keep up the great work!

Unforgettable LodgingPosted Feb 16, 2015
In looking through various 4-5 star hotels/lodging in Australia over various trips, I've found most places are dated and don't live up to their star ratings. The Vintage Grand Mercure is an exception. The apartment style unit was very modern, very clean, and very luxurious. I feel the photos on Trip Advisory don't really do the place justice. Either that, or we were lucky to get a more well maintained unit? Anyways, I had originally booked a 1 bedroom apartment which, looking at the photos on Trip Advisory, didn't look all that spectacular. At $450 pn I was hoping for more. However, I was booking very last minute for Valentine's weekend so figured I should expect higher than average pricing. Upon arriving, we were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment for free! The unit was amazing and could easily house 4 legitimately and at least 6 "otherwise" ;) For just the two of us, it was overkill but very much appreciated :D It definitely made the price easier to swallow and also made our valentine's weekend unforgettable! I will try to post some photos that might be more reflective of how nice the place really was.
