I had previously stayed in the same week at Quest and Peppers both booked and both much cheaper. I had to stay an extra day in Canberra and tried my luck at Mantra as others booked out. The price was much higher - I thought if you turned up on the day and there is a spare room that you...

I didn't know what to expect as I won this stay and hadn't even looked up the accomodation to have a look. When we arrived I was so extremely happy with the room and the Location :) I am defiantly going to stay here again and will recommend the mantra to my friends

Nice clean room, although a little dated, staff were great - nice and friendly. We also liked the secure underground parking and easy walking distance to the CBD. The pool was a little disappointing - very cold, but overall we had an excellent stay.

1st up, my stay here with my family was from a competition that we had won. But after this fabulous weekend, i can definitely recommend it and I myself will be using the Mantra again because we were treated so well. Reception were wonderful, rooms were excellent, parking was great too. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms were spotlessly clean....

The Mantra is in an ideal central location with easy walking access to restaurants and the CBD. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our serviced apartment was roomy and comfortable. Secure underground parking is available.

I had a financial emergency prior to travel, leaving me short of funds to cover the $100 deposit on my already paid for room. The receptionist, being a people person, ensured she took every cent in my bank account, not even leaving enough for a drink for my time in Canberra. Several days later, still waiting for that reimbursement to...

I like staying at Mantra usually because you get consistently high-quality rooms. Mantra on Northbourne however doesn't meet the same standard - my room was quite tired (poor quality furnishings, old appliances, and generally the room was well below what I was expecting). The bathroom smells mouldy. The kitchen is so tiny it's hard to cook anything in there, and...

Rooms are well serviced however the breakfast service downstairs is terrible. Food runs out often and the staff seem to walk past and ignore it until you ask them to bring more out. The breakfast charges are also quite high compared to the Avenue next door who have far better food and free espresso coffee (the Mantra charge you for...

Value for money was great. They had a full English breakfast which was so delicious. Rooms are spectacularly large and especially awesome guest experience amongst staff was the highligh. Will definitely recommend to other family and friends.
