Stayed here on busines in late January. Good location and reasonable price - around $220 for a night plis breakfast. Has gym and lap pool. If you are a light sleeper you may want to avoid the rooms above the rail and busway.

great sized room desk, kitchenette area, sitting room area and bedroom. spacious bathroom, big shower, unfortunately could not get any hot water so had to settle for cold rather than freezing shower. Other than that room was perfect. Good selection in bar fridge and tempting snacks I found hard to resist as I arrived late and restaurants closed.

Room Tip: rooms at front are big and Grey St was not noisy on a Saturday morning

A Mantra is a Mantra... I have stayed in a few during my many years travelling and hotel-hopping, and the experience is generally the same

1) Convenient location in the hub of things
2) Clean, well-kempt rooms
3) Generally pleasant staff
4) Very average, sparse decor
5) Spacious rooms

The Mantra on Southbank is no exception. Lovely staff, clean and simple decor, everything is working and functional. Facilities are there, but they are quite mediocre. Nothing spectacular about the pool or gym. Rooms basic. However, everything works and a stay at the mantra is always hassle free, with plentiful space in the room making it ideal as a base for a short business break.

My husband and I recently stayed for 2 nights while we attended the finals of the tennis. It was great to be at the same hotel as the players and officials - it all added to the experience. The hotel staff were particularly helpful, and we had a great room, very spacious and well apointed. I've already booked to return with a friend in March for a girls night out. Love being able to walk to all the great South Bank attractions and into the city. Top Spot.

Room Tip: Location great large rooms great amentities

Dear Mrs Sharpe,

Thank you, what wonderful feedback for our team!

We were excited to have the players and officials staying with us again this year and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back again next year. It's a little surreal to see the players walk past you in our hotel foyer or at breakfast and then watch them on the court!

Mantra South Bank certainly is a top spot and is the place to stay in Brisbane and I'm very happy that we'll be welcoming you back in March - your Sparkling wine and goodies will be waiting!

See you soon!

Kind regards

Great apartment style living on the South Bank of Brisbane - with all the great things the location brings. Friendly staff. Valet parking can be a bit hard to pull in to at the front of the building though. It was clean and well presented in a modern style, although housekeeping came quite late in the day (annoying for a week's stay). Pool and gym on site. Only issue in apartment style was the kitchen ... we set the alarm off three times from STEAM from boiling water.

Room Tip: Ask for city views

Dear PandSMadison,

Thank you for your feedback regarding Mantra South Bank and for taking the time to post on Trip Advisor. I'm not sure what happened with the steam setting off the alarm however we're looking into it now and will fix it.

My team and I just love it when our guests have something something fabulous to say not only about us and our friendly, warm service but also about our location. People are slowly discovering that South Bank is a great place to stay overnight because its surrounded by so many things to do and see and it's away from the city noise and traffic.

Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards
