Recent guest reviews

The place to stay in melbourne for your getaway is close enough for anywhere that you have planned to visit or see also short stroll to southbank where something is always happening or just for a stroll along the river bank great for relaxing

We were upgraded to a two bedroom unit and given a free drink voucher each on arrival! Reception staff were very welcoming and informative. The 10th floor unit had evrything we required. The balcony was great but very noisy {the unit was very quiet if all windows were kept closed. The only issue we had were with the pillows - all hard and very high - tried all eight but all identical ! If booking we would suggest asking for a couple of varieties of pillows when booking ! We could not adjust the A/C as there are no instructions in the unit so we were almost freezing or somehow quite hot !!

Plus: Location of the hotel is great. Rooms are big. Minus: But for the price you get not enough value. Rooms are not cleaned properly. Lots of dust in the corners. The daily cleaning of the rooms is done not thorough enough. Cutlury was put back in drawers still being dirty. Breakfast selection is ok, however everyday the exact same. No variety. 35$/night for carpark. Checkout time at 10:00 wereas other hotels are having checkout times of 11:00

Excellent in every way possible. NO complaints at all. Very central to Southbank and Melb central. Staff were very knowledgeable about restaurants, entertainment etc. Will most certainly return when next in Melb. Thank you Mantra.

Stayed 9th February. The room was modern, clean and spacious, all staff were attentive and friendly and the location is perfect to enjoy South Bank eateries and the Arts Centre. Especially liked the happy hour in the Spire Bar and Restaurant. The buffet breakfast was fresh and delicious.

A 2 night stay had us looking for somewhere in Southbank to facilitate easy travel to Hamer Hall and Princess Theatre. This time we chose Mantra. Very impressed!!! Rooms were excellent, bed comfortable and once we worked out the air cond. (our fault, not theirs) the climate was great too!!! The only thing we noticed that brought the rating down one notch was room service meals left in the hallway ALL DAY!! Whilst this didn't affect our daily lives it didn't present well and gave the hallways a tacky feel. Small problem though, really and an easy fix!!! Happily stay here again.

A warm and professional welcome from friendly, helpful staff. Our apartment was spacious, attractively decorated and very comfortable with a stunning view. Location is perfect - close to art galleries, theatres and restaurants. Our stay was perfect and we will definitely return.

Great place to stay with good views. We enjoyed our views of the Art Centre. We were given an upgrade of a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment. Very helpful and welcoming staff. Great Coffee onsite in the Cafe.

No reasonable person would book this room. No information about demolition noise, making the room unusable. Vouchers are not a refund. The customer is right to insist on a full refund. The propaganda on the phone is tantamount to false advertising.

Perfect place to unwind in the city, take in amazing views of the Arts Centre Spire. Well presented rooms and fitted nicely. Bathroom was a little under utilised but still adequate. Great for a night at Crown or the footy
