Recent guest reviews

Enjoyed my stay here. Staff were great and very helpful. Location perfect to get to business meetings. Had everything I needed. Would definitely come back here again. Great place to have breakfast....

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel - room, location, staff were all great. Hotel centrally located. Would recommend hotel to friends. Enjoyed dinner at the hotel with a group of friends - meal was delicious and had excellent service.

I do not travel much and am very naive but always comfortable dealing with Mantra service hence I became a member and always try to use Mantra if possible. It all began with my accommodation in Perth central

Good location - particularly easy to reach as one drives down Northbourne into Canberra from Sydney. and easy walking distance to CBD. Our room was comfortable but uninspiring in terms of decor. Very convenient parking. Good value package with exhibition at the National Gallery.

The neighboring room were having a very loud party for most of the night and the smoke alarm went off twice during our stay which is hard as I suffer from migraines. The food was good and the movie choice was great.

Everything was good. Keep in mind that the restaurant is not open on Sundays. Coffee cart is available for take away and very convenient when one is in a hurry. Mantra on Northbourne became a home for me in Canberra whenever I visited due to its convenient location, comfort and friendly service

Have stayed here on numerous occasions and frankly it's starting to look a little "tired" or maybe the out of date bathrooms, undersized television sets that have aspect ratio problems, lack of available parking, lifts that don't go to all floors watered down juice at what is sometimes a very meagre breakfast buffet and the robotic reception staff is starting to wear a little thin. The newer Mantra up the road looks very nice but not close enough to the vibrant restaurant scene just a short walk from Mantra on Northbourne so will have to try somewhere else on my future stays.

Great for parties near city and staying over! Have celebrated my birthday here with my good friends and so far I have nothing bad to say. Room service was prompt and they give complementary drinks if its your birthday!

Average room, starting to look a little tired. Parking was a little tight, and the 2.1m clearance bar is a little low. But good location, very close to central Canberra and the staff were pleasant and helpful.

We were only in Canberra briefly, and the Mantra offered a good deal. Staff were helpful, the bed was comfortable, the room clean and well designed. The Hotel's location close to the City Centre, restaurants and a very good craft brewery is a plus - with light rail being constructed in front of the hotel things could even get better.
