Staff on check-in were friendly and upgraded us to suites on level 8. What a shame we're only here for one night before boarding The Ghan. The hotel has great views over the Esplanade and access to Mitchell St. Out the back where there are a couple of pubs, cheap places to eat and a Coles supermarket. I would certainly...

Booking already paid, but still $400 taken as bond, not to be refunded for 2-4 weeks. Meals couldn't be taken out of the bond. Most hotels take an imprint that is cancelled at end of visit if no costs are accrued. City view can be a bit noisy.

The staff were excellent in all areas. The in room meals are fantastic so no need eating elsewhere. The buffet breakfast is also great. Only down side is that I will need to diet now as I over did my eating as it is so good.

At $30 for the 'Prime Angus Steak Burger' I actually expected a steak burger. What I got instead was a hamburger on a soggy and greasy Turkish bread bun with soft oily chips! Probably the worst meal I've had for a long time! My room is quite nice, a bit dated, but reasonably comfortable.

We booked a 1 bedroom apartment for the night as a base for the weekend with our baby. Having stayed at the property many times over the last 4 years, I thought I knew what I was expecting. When we walked in the room, we found the bedroom & living area had no separation at all, it all flowed into...

We were overjoyed with everything at the Mantra. The room was great, spacious, clean and modern. Room service was excellent. Good location the Main Street was soo close. The kitchen had everything Oven, dishwasher. We even had a hairdryer. This is the second Mantra we have stayed at, the other one was in Melbourne. Great views.

Australians need to be recognised for the reason they want to travel now, get out, away from pressures of work and families. Its not ALL about the young for us now. Work together keep Australia on their feet. Health comes first Health, Safety in bathrooms, Wealth pays for your rooms and staff. Acknowledge us Aussie lifters.
