Every need was catered for perfectly!

Staff extremely helpful and accommodating for our 2 day conference. Each request was fulfilled to our satisfaction, including catering, technology & furniture. Mereana was an excellent host. A great venue to combine accommodation with a conference.

Very good

Pleasant staff, very helpful and attentive. Room was excellent as it was toward the back and very quiet. Other times the rooms toward the rail line could be very noisy at night.

Great front of house staff

Loads of space in the room and very suitable for our travelling situation with my Aunt. Easy to find and easy to get around by bus, train, taxi and Uber. Also walked to Chinatown and into downtown area.

enjoyed the stay

Everything worked out well. Only criticism might be that there seemed to be a bit of confusion about applying discounts at the restaurant.

The amazing staff were lovely, my room was clean and tidy. Had one issue with the mini bar but it was immediately looked into once I notified staff. I highly recommend this hotel and will be using it again.

Great value and great location

It was great location. The staff were very helpful even when we checked in late on Thursday night. Would be good if the restaurant could have been open after 10pm on Thursday but as advised they did have room service.
