I had a really relaxing stay at the Mantra. Welcoming staff and everything was easy. My room was lovely and spacious. Definitely 4 not 5 star but that was what I paid for and it was fine. I would definitely recommend as it is walking distance to town and the MCG.

A run down hotel with numerous problems. No the 4.5 stars as advertised. Staff are helpful & a pleasure to deal with but the hotel is full of problems that should be fixed before a guest walks through the room door. Will not be returning.

Stayed with several other couples for a celebration weekend - perfect for what we wanted, good size rooms, comfortable bed and pillows. My only complaint was curtains didn't shut properly so let some light in in the morning other than that was fab

Good Morning Teams, Thanks for the review and the feedback on the curtains. I will have our handy maintenance team attend and do a quick recalibration of the curtain hooks to ensure we keep the beastly Sunday morning sunshine out of the rooms. Hope to see you and the group again soon.

good quality and staff were all very nice, Our room was over looking a main road and was rather noisy, with not much of a view, not double glazed. Other rooms had wonderful views and our group was pretty happy with their stay

Good Afternoon Clayton, Thanks for the review, we do have rooms that bound all sides of the building and across our hotel levels (5-13) so the views do differ in respect to the allocated rooms. I am glad to hear that the group had an enjoyable stay overall. Hope to see you again soon and be able to have you...
