Thank you for a very comfortable stay. Staff handled a fire alarm well, and kept us informed. Very friendly. I would like to see free parking when staying at the hotel, since we are already paying guests. This is the first hotel i've been to that charges guests parking.

I always stay at the Mantra while staying in Canberra. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The rooms are always a decent size and so close to the city center and transport. It's the perfect place to stay!

Mantra was great. We had our room at discounted price, the apartment was really lovely, we had our own little kitchen to cook from and a beautiful bathtub to soak ourselves in. It was a walking distance to the city which offered a lot of healthy choices. All in all. It was EXCELLENT!! Thank you!

Staff were very helpful regardless of the hour of check in. The room was neat and tidy and hotel conveniently situated to great shopping and eateries. Love the king size bed. We will defiantly be back.

Great location within walking distance to town. Friendly efficient staff. Good size clean comfortable room. Good amenities with indoor pool and good size sauna and gym. Maybe parking should be included for guests but $12 is reasonable. Good value for money.

Had a fantastic time in Canberra.. We will definitely stay at the Mantra on Northbourne again.. The rooms are very spacious, we had an interconnecting room that is ideal for families.. Location is great, we had a nice stroll to some great restaurants in Lonsdale St..

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very convenient to restaurants and shopping. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was enjoyable. It was Canberra Day, so the restaurant wasn't open, but the staff provided some nearby alternatives, and a map.

Very convenient to city centre. Helpful, friendly & knowledgeable reception staff about local events & restaurants. Were upgraded to one bedroom apartment which was very spacious & clean, bed comfortable. Buffet breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay again & would recommend to family & friends.

In Canberra for 3 nights - chose Mantra as in walking distance to shops and restaurants, Breakfast was ok but not outstanding. Hot food was mainly warm - cereal etc was as expected. We had dinner in the stock restaurant one night and it good value. The room was spacious and comfy, but the wall between the end room and ours were paper thin - we could everything that was said and when they used the shower it was like being under a waterfall - it was so loud especially at 1 am. Parking underneath was good value. Overall we had a pleasant stay.

Everything was most satisfactory. Would happily stay here again Room was clean and tidy, bed OK, shower good, nice and quiet. It was Canberra Day,so restaurant was not operating but plenty of alternatives within easy walking distance
