My breakfast was absolutely horrible, everything was cold and rubbery. The coffee was inexcusably bad. Not sure what they are thinking.

As a hotel this Mercure needs some reno love, but theVertigo restaurant is a great spot for either a drink or dinner. Make a booking and request a table with a view, you wont regret it.

Asked for a rum and coke, was asked if Jim Beam was okay. Pretty much decided that we wern't going to stay there for dinner. Breakfast was pretty good though.

This is the restaurant on top of the Mercure Hotel in downtown Auckland. We arrived and asked for a table, and we were instructed to wait at the bar as a table would be available "in about five minutes". In the end we waited around 30 minutes before we had a table. Not necessarily a problem, but if they had... More
