The Mantra in Wollongong was disappointing. They charge for use of credit card (any type of card) to pay for your room and they also charge for Wifi ($10). I stayed in room 303 and there was a party in 304 for the entire stay and there was a lot of noise from the busy road outside. The only convenience...

I could happily live in this Motel room as a home. 2 Bedrooms, full kitchen dining and living area. Full laundry as well. Great location for a holiday at the 'Gong. Way beyond expectations. Great view from the huge balcony. Highly recommended.

We enjoy staying at the Mantra because it is comfortable and easy to get to. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable and the showers are hot. The hotel is located right near the railway station and an easy walk to the shopping centre. The staff are always happy to welcome you.

Stayed 4 nights travelled by train so was great. Close to shops and delivery from Woolworths was great. Staff ok, seemed a bit suspicious most of the time. Booked in early so that was great. Room ok bed reasonable no blanket or spare pillows though. Washer and dryer were awesome. Second time I have stayed and would again

Not a bad room but expensive for what it was; 1 night $340 in Wollongong isn't value for money. The Location is good and quite central. Rooms clean and well stocked, plus staff friendly and helpful. Not sure I would stay here again due to the price charged.

Good accommodation friendly staff, off street parking, a HUGE balcony and close to where we wanted to be. Great coffee shop nearby for the morning after 'starter' and trains and beach close by. Will stay there again for sure.

The location is great for people travelling by train, the off-street parking is free and secure and the free wifi works at a reasonable speed. Black out curtains are good, room size is good and bathroom was clean. The staff are courteous and check-in/out was fast. However, the furniture has seen better days and the condition of the carpet in...

Having had very positive experiences at Mantras in other cities we found this one a bit disappointing. We arrived late at night and had difficulty getting access to the after-hours key box. After a number of tries it finally opened. We were very pleased, however, to still be able to get into the secure parking after midnight. The location was...

We enjoyed our stay in Rm 404 and the beds were very comfortable. The view from our balcony was great. Cleanliness was evident. The parking was secure and the lovely lady at check in was very friendly. The location is close to everything We would definitely stay there next time. Thank you Mantra.
