I have stayed in a lot of Mantras around Australia, but this one has by far the most friendly and welcoming staff of them all. makes the trip to Canberra worth the while for old fashion customer service with a smile.

My room was clean, and pleasant and the lighting was great - finally a room with adequate reading light! Room service food was tasty but not completely as the menu described (missing yogurt and different sauce). Staff very pleasant and friendly. Easy to access.

Perth, Australia
Reviewed 2 September 2016

Rooms are a good size and a great location. However, they seem to skimp on amenities like toilet paper and no free internet (unless you get a code from reception plus it's slow). Rooms could do with a makeover and you don't get all the free to air TV channels (annoying since the internet is slow to stream TV shows)

Not super fancy but clean, comfortable firm beds, no sound from other rooms, friendly staff on the front desk and great location next to the city. You can't ask for much else for a quick overnight stay in our Nations Capital.

Very happy with my stay, good location and the hotel is fine. Nice size room, well appointed and everything worked. You can hear a bit of noise which was initially a worry but it was fine. Sadly they charged the room service fee which is annoying but still not a bad place. I'd stay again.
