Mercantile Hotel The Rocks, The Rocks, Australia
No lift, shared bathrooms - yet very enjoyable
I wasn't aware that there was no lift, and yet my room was comfortable, warm and I was happy. Free coffee and tea - kettle in the room. Breakfast was sparse, but had all I needed. If you get past the shared bathrooms it's an excellent place and close to everything - the bathrooms were clean and always open - July 2018

Older but great location and comfy bed
Loved having continental brekky on weekdays and full breakfast on weekends. Very clean but old building. The shade in my room was mostly closed but wouldn’t open or close. Fixed promptly. The shower head in bath in middle on second floor shoots water over the shower door. Owners are very helpful and attentive.

Good to Great, lowered expectations
The hotel was good to great. Couldn't beat the price in the area but it is very basic accomodations. There are other better hotels in the area but you will pay for it. Overall, I would recommend the hotel because it met out needs and the location is ideal
