The Mantra is a great hotel in a great location. I would recommend it if you would like to stay near South Bank. Its walking distance to the Convention Centre and all the restaurants in the area. It's also walking distance to the South Brisbane Train Station.

From the staff member meeting us outside the hotel to park our car, the ease of reception, our room was excellent (very roomy, bed very comfortable, bar well stocked and not exorbitant prices) and the service at the bar and breakfast was excellent. We have now stayed at Mantra Hotels for the third time (and recommended them to our running...

Would highly recommend this Hotel. Great location and staff are all very very friendly. All great amenities. I would certainly stay here again. Right in the middle of South Bank and just a walk across the bridge to Queens Street.

Great place to stay if heading to Qpac or any other functions at Southbank. Checked car in early & room was ready not long after that. Staff friendly & very helpful. Would definitely stay again. Room very clean & modern. Studio apartment but was big for a studio.

Hotel is close to walking track along the river and near numerous dining and entertainment locations nearby. The bed and pillows are fabulous and enable great sleep. A/C instructions need to be left in compendium & welcome letter so that it is easy to use please.

The one bedroom apartment was very clean and I loved having full cooking facilities, as well as a dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom was comfortable and with a second TV in the bedroom made for some relaxation after a busy day at work. Loved the Gym too. Staff were very friendly, only one downside the Bar didn't have two...

Room was neat and tidy however it was an iceberg when we first entered it. After fiddling with it - it was still an iceberg. Had to open a window to adjust temperature. Service at reception was good and were helpful. The downfall was the bar - need to update their drinks menu as what was on the menu was...

Housekeeping was below par, front house staff were really inefficient, and they sting you for parking (the valet shouldn't mess with your car seat position btw. Bad skills)... and there's no towels in pool area... but if you're staying here you're doing it for the location, right? Really handy to Southbank restaurants!!

The service received at the bar was not very good. Not friendly and not wanting to help. We got our drinks but did not stay for more due to the service. However the service by the desk staff was quite good when checking in and out.

This is a very well located hotel with good features although perhaps the rooms despite being large and well appointed are just starting to get a little tired. Staff are always pleasant and helpful but expensive wi-fi access is a significant negative. Will stay again when their rates are competitive.
