Recent guest reviews

Great location. Got upgraded on arrival which was absolutely fabulous. Staff were excellent and very helpful and parking was easily accessible and good value also. Nice and quiet location and an easy walk to city appointment.

We went for questacon and the dinosaur museum. We had 2 little ones 3 and 4 and it was a best place to stay. We had the queen room, it has everything in the kitchen and laundry dryer. Walkable and drive easy to any places from there.

Stayed here numerous times for work and leisure. Service is fantastic and facilities and rooms are great. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. It has everything you need and the staff are very helpful,with onsite parking

Reception staff are always friendly and helpful and the rooms are always clean. Please pass the feedback onto the reception staff and cleaners. Whenever I visit Canberra for work, I always prefer to stay here over the Crown Plaza. Great work. Keep it up and I look forward to visiting again on my next business trip. :)

Front desk staff very communicative and helpful. Welcoming, happy, smiley faces. Larger than expected room. Comfortable and well presented. Heating worked a treat on a very cold night. Happy to return

The rooms are spacious and clean and the bed was fantastic- so comfortable. I would book again as first choice. Staff at desk were excellent. Behind the scenes in finance office shows meanness the charged 1.1% on my tap and go card. That is not the visa but a straight cash card. It is not worth putting the staff through the embarrassment of having to ask for it. I sag to head office, get real for you charge enough anyway to cover it.

The room layout is good but we only got very little sleep due to the nightclub at the back of the hotel. The music pounded until the early morning hours and the people yelling as they left went on till around 3.30. The traffic noise was also bad. Maybe try a room at the fron of the hotel- not sure if this will make a difference. We were on the third floor at the back facing Officeworks.

Room was good, food smell in rooms, probably to be expected with kitchenette. Though we have stayed plenty of times before without a noticeable smell. We bought a scented candle at a local store. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel's location is very good , and my family have a good trip to parliament zone, very close to Canberra center, old parliament house, national gallery, national library and so on, the city is very clean, Mantra hotel is also very clean, I will very glad to stay in different city's Mantra hotel of my next trip.

A very enjoyable stay for two nights, thoroughly enjoyed by the family. Accommodation was very comfortable. Furthermore, the staff were friendly and very helpful. The location was also an asset as it was central to good restaurants, Cafes and shopping.
