Great location and nice rooms and guest service is great. The biggest down is the lack of unlimited complimentary wifi. One night free is provided. The restaurant attached, Esca is superb also. Great proximity to other restaurants, and an easy walk to the gorge. Quick drive to the Tamar Valley wineries.

Stayed at the Mantra on Charles for three nights. Good location, with easy access to the airport, and plenty of cafe's and restaurants close by. The centre of town is just a ten minute downhill stroll away. We were able to take advantage of one of their web site deals and get a larger room with free wifi. The room...

The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful - check in counter, restaurant and room service all good. To find the hotel, you need to know that the entry is in Frankland Street, not Charles Street. This unique looking hotel is easily seen on the horizon as you walk a few blocks from the City Centre along Charles Street - you...

Excellent place to stay. Car parking was right near the front door. Room was large and very comfortable. Only complaint was the marble coffee table looked grubby. The house staff told me the stains cannot be removed but he assurred me it was clean. Easy access to the City shops and a half hour walk to the Gorge. The staff...

Ideal if you wish to be in walking distance of the city centre but have total peace and quiet. It's nice and modern and very clean with a nice big bed which just needed thicker pillows all four were like pan cakes

Only fault I found was the Dinner Menu. As myself and my daughter don't like quail/game meat and we cannot eat seafood/shell fish...we found the menu not suitable for us so we ate elsewhere. (The menu looked delicious if we could only eat the advertised options) . Staff were very professional. Rooms clean neat and tidy. Breakfast was good.
