Pleasant place. Information provided said breakfast was included but it was not. I was directed to a cafe down the street which was closed. Noisy fan going most of night - may have been in neighbouring building. Aggreeable staff.

We chose the Mercantile because of it's location in the Rocks. We had a small double room with a shared bath. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We unfortunately had to check out prior to the included breakfast was available.
