Enjoyed our stay very much, we had a request and this was met without any issues. We appreciated that. Valet parking was marvellous as soon as we pulled up staff were there such a relief in a short time zone. Staff friendly and helpful in every way including follow up on street for taxi which was slow. Excellent will recommend...

Immaculately clean, nice and quiet (on level seven) even for being in a busy area. Location is great. Love Southbank. Have to fit in five meals a day to even begin to sample all the area has to offer. ;)

Very nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Room good size and well equipped. Good full breakfast available and nice restaurant. Valet parking good, but a little expensive, but the fact you could leave your car parked at hotel until you decided to go home was a bonus. Very close to most things around the Southbank area especially if you're going...

Upon checking in we discovered that we had accidentally booked the wrong date through Wotif, and despite the no refund policy, Mantra were very helpful, honored the booking, and advised us to contact Wotif to seek a refund which was granted. Not only very friendly service, but also good clean and comfortable accommodation, and extremely well located for any events...

Enjoyed the one night stay. valet parking was good, makes it a lot easier to park in brisbane because we were able to leave the car there the next day still. The room was big, very quiet and clean. The buffet breakfast was good, lots of choice and the food tasted great.

We picked up our room with one nights notice after doing research on an Internet site.

Absolutely excellent location in the thick of Brisbane excitement- QPAC, Southbank water park, trains and great restaurants. The hotel is very clean with a great view, very fast lift.

The service was very good, and the room upgrade was really appreciated. Staff were friendly and helpful. The constant hum in the bathroom was a bit of a negative that I resolved by closing the bathroom door.
