The one bedroom apartment was perfect for our family, with lots of room for our toddler to move about. The hotel had no problem providing a cot (though slightly thin and wonky, but we fixed it up with some pillows off the bed, and did report it at the end of our stay). Also, the underground parking at $12 a...

I stayed at Mantra on Northbourne for two nights and was delighted to get an upgrade to one of their one-bedroom apartments. The layout or design of these rooms are quite amazing and gives you a lot of space and light in the room. You don't feel restricted and are able to carry out your routine tasks the same way...

The staff were very friendly and helpful, bed was fabulous and room size good. Check in procedure was very messy with cars blocking the carpark entrance, but it was the Easter weekend so maybe that is not generally a problem. The pool and sauna areas were disappointing; very small and pokey with access by dingy stairwells, it didn't spoil our...

Great location. Great size rooms. Our room was quite noisy on a Saturday night (4th floor) as street noise was quite audible. Some pretty dirty blankets were provided with fold out bed, other than that the room was clean and well maintained.

Thank you to all your lovely staff who were so friendly and responsive to our queries and requests. We also found the location to be excellent, close to the Lonsdale St cafes and the Canberra Centre. Our room was clean and plain, equipped with what we needed, but nothing luxurious. It was on the small side, and the beds were...

This was recommended as a family hotel. Other than having ample space, I'm not quite sure why. The furniture is grimy, like a dorm room. I didn't want to sit on the couch with my bare skin. Pregnant, I could hardly get in and out of the sofa, I was sinking to the floor. Our cleaning service was average -...

Brilliant location for central Canberra with spacious rooms. All you need for a great stay in a modern hotel. The management were extremely helpful when there was confusion with the booking. The only down side was water pipe noises when next door was showering.
