Definitely recommend Mantras - they are clean, comfortable and reliable. Had all the amenities I needed and the staff were great, very helpful. About a 10-15 min walk to the centre of town which was fine for me as great to stretch the legs. Parking on site. The only reason I put very good rather than excellent is that I...

Clean practical room, great bathroom. Counter staff friendly. Small kitchen lacked bench space and no bowl for microwave. Outlook on to service vehicle entrance unexciting. Liked coffee machine, house wine terrible. Other than a King sized bed & large bath it did not have an executive feel. Enjoyed my previous stay in hotel suite better. Would still recommend this hotel...

As a frequent visitor to the Charles, I am happy with all aspects of what this hotel offers its guests. It is well located, offers good value for money and the staff are always friendly and efficient. The restaurant is well worth visiting but unfortunately it is closed on Sunday evenings.

Not the standard we expected. The food from the restaurant was below average. The couch is so low and saggy it is near impossible for a person with arthritis to get off it. Was not worth the money unfortunately.
