Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our ‘luxury one-bedroom deluxe Suite with Pool/Ocean View” was well below any acceptable standard. The furniture was old, chipped, stained and covered in a sticky residue. The bathroom tiles, skirting and wardrobe tracks were unclean. The couch/fold-out bed was dirty and smelly. The outdoor lounge was filthy. A kitchen cupboard door was leaning because of a faulty hinge, the range-hood had slumped because of loose attachment screws and could have fallen at any time and there was a huge ugly stain in the middle of the worn and buckled carpet. The windows and mirrored wardrobe doors were smudged, a wand was missing from the vertical blinds on the window of the apartment and so were the advertised block out curtains. The small TV was only live to air and did not have the advertised Foxtel available. There was also a dangerous trip hazard because of the level of the kitchen tiles in relation to the carpet. Only saving grace was the view and 2 of their Staff. We will not stay here again.

Had a 3 night stay at the Mantra booked through Accom Holidays. The apartment had a great view and was fairly well appointed. The problem was that the place was dirty and had not had a thorough clean between lets and to have the clean the place your self as well as put all cutlery and crockery through the dishwasher is not acceptable. Photo of spoon found in drawer.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The room with the terrace overlooking the water was even more beautiful than the pictures. The pool was luxury and the location surroundings perfect for our getaway. It is so close to Sydney. We hope to come back soon.

On arrival, found room dusty and untidy. Reported to receiption. No action. Housekeeping for longer stays must happen daily. Replenishment of bath towels, toilet paper, beach towels must be done daily. Instead we had to ask for these things at reception daily and had to collect from reception itself. TV connection only broadcasts free to air channels. Netflix, Prime, Sports must be added to list to make stay useful when in room. Overall not happy with the stay. Brand name Mantra does not match with the service it provides. Stay not value for money.

Stayed two nights. Room not tidied up or the two towels provided for two people weren't changed. Ridiculous having to climb into a spa bath to have a shower, then used your used towel for a 2nd time or third time. Balcony had spills of coffee or tea all over the floor.

Nice location and easy walking to most things. Staff are professional and attentive. Any issues with room or supplies are dealt with quickly. Very nice stay. Certainly would stay again. Club next door is very handy after a long day for a quick feed and ice cold drink.

I didn't understand what she quiet meant but my partner was made to feel so picked on discriminated towards when we went to the elevator the key wasn't even allocated to a roof so we got stuck in a hot elevator that wouldn't move because there was no floor it was assigned to so we had to go back down when someone finally pressed for an elevator which staff then told us oh that elevator is screwed but we used rest of the day when we were finally given a room key. It was the all female staff in the day that was rude there is only one gentleman there that is extremely nice and also the handy man who was cleaning lobby. Extremely nice people just the front desk females are rude you almost feel bullied and definitely descriminated against

Great location, but no towel rails anywhere in room, leaving no option but to place wet towels on floor. Not serviced rooms, so had to ask for towels to be replaced, but had to collect them myself. "Hinterland" view is actually the houses across the road at the rear of the hotel. It also means you will be woken at 0700 by the bins being emptied
