Lovely place to stay close to the city but not in the middle of the busy CBDs we like the river cats to get around . You can walk to lots of restaurants .from casual to the tops and lots in between . Nice to walk along the river which they have done up really well since the flood.

The staff are attentive and professional. The pool is great fun with its see-through wall to the street. Happy hour at the bar :). Concierge parking. Great breakfast. Nice products in the foyer bathroom.

After having our accommodation cancelled at another hotel, we had a day to find a new place.

After 2 working weeks at the Mantra, I have to say that staff and hotels are and will be my best option of Southbank, I will be staying there for another 9-10 weeks and regardless what other people say about this hotel, I firmly states that I have been in many others with higher grade but less service and cleanliness

I am still waiting (6 days) for my $50 deposit after paying a further $85 upon leaving. This should have been immediate or deducted from the final bill. The account for the room was prepaid through Qantas. I would not stay again
