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.

Travelling interstate with a disability can be daunting enough, let alone accomodation meeting all my needs. I am a wheelchair user. The customer service of the team at Southbank (specifically Liam) was impeccable and faultless. Originally, I had booked accomodation at Mantra on Jollimont. My mum had previously contacted Mantra to ensure that the King room I had booked for me and my friend would be accessible. She was ensured the shower was a drive in shower with no hob, and that the door frames were suitable for my wheelchair to access. However, when I arrived this was not the case. I was barely able to drive my chair into the room, and the shower and toilet were also inaccessible. Having travelled for the Taylor Swift concert, this accomodation could have been a disaster. However, Mantra on Southbank were able to assist me with provision of a wheelchair accessible apartment for no extra cost. I am truely grateful for this opportunity as I appreciate the difficulty of accomodation surrounding that weekend. Once I had transferred to Mantra on Southbank, Liam was more than accommodating, ensuring that we were comfortable and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him. He even ensured that I was provided with an adequate shower chair for my stay. I would highly recommend my apartment to any other wheelchair users. I truely appreciate that this apartment had widened doors, a ramp to access the bathroom, a roll in shower, as well as a roll out sofa bed for my friend(upon request).

I had an incredibly disappointing experience at this hotel. Upon check-in, I was overcharged, and despite the staff admitting their mistake, I have yet to receive a refund over two weeks later. The lack of communication, taking days to reply to emails with no clear answers, and overall poor customer service have left me absolutely frustrated. Avoid this place if you value your time and money. Mantra, where is my money?

Exiting Shower is a huge safety risk, When you step in or out you have to negotiate the toilet. The room was very cold on arrival and needed to work out AC. The recption was brilliant and checking out was good too. The Breakfast offer of $26 was not worth it. The Bae marie was inspid and I had to pay extra for a Capicunnio,

Dear 779grahamj, thank you for staying at Mantra Southbank Melbourne. I am delighted to read your comments about the reception; I will share them with the team; thank you. I am unaware of any previous remarks concerning the toilet hindering access to the shower, but thank you for the feedback, and I will review the room with the housekeeper and maintenance team. Thank you for informing me about the room being too cold. In summer, we cool the rooms before arrival, as typically in the summer, it is faster to warm the room than to chill it, so it may have been our doing. We hope you will consider staying with us again, and we look forward to warmly welcoming you back. Kind regards, Jens Corder, general manager

We ended up with a bonus early check in which was so welcome. Staff were friendly and helpful. Staff were able to book taxis for us and we were able to leave luggage before our flight after check out. Easy walking distance to the tennis and trams.

Great stay, great location, helpful and friendly staff, great buffet breakfast and great stay for our whole family. Rooms were comfortable, a bit dated but that wasn’t a big issue for us. We went to the Arts Centre and tennis during our stay, awesome location for both and great restaurants near by. Great staff, very happy with our stay!

Surfers Paradise, Australia1033 contributions174 helpful votes
8th floor room was lovely with quality fittings such as a mini bar, coffee machine and dyson hair dryer. Spacious and clean. The gym is relatively fresh, but needs a good vacuum. Reception staff are friendly and efficient. Car parking at $35 a night is a bit steep! As an accor member we are entitled to half price meals when 2 ordering. However, I didn't want a full breakfast, and was advised that I could use the bread counter and have muffins, or toast at a cost of $8. I did this and Mr T had the full breakfast at $35. We only got a 25% discount on the breakfast as they counted my bread station meal as room service - no discount! I was in the restasurant! The next morning we walked 7 minutes away to Ovelo, another accor restaurant that is better value if you don't want a full breakfast. The staff at Ovelo are fabulous.... check out my review there.
