The location is great for people travelling by train, the off-street parking is free and secure and the free wifi works at a reasonable speed. Black out curtains are good, room size is good and bathroom was clean. The staff are courteous and check-in/out was fast. However, the furniture has seen better days and the condition of the carpet in...

Having had very positive experiences at Mantras in other cities we found this one a bit disappointing. We arrived late at night and had difficulty getting access to the after-hours key box. After a number of tries it finally opened. We were very pleased, however, to still be able to get into the secure parking after midnight. The location was...

We enjoyed our stay in Rm 404 and the beds were very comfortable. The view from our balcony was great. Cleanliness was evident. The parking was secure and the lovely lady at check in was very friendly. The location is close to everything We would definitely stay there next time. Thank you Mantra.

I was very happy with the stay until the third day I was informed I had to leave or pay for another night when I booked for 3 nights for 596. So in the end my holiday was cut short, it was embarrassing, expensive and ruined the experience.

Hotel was the only available 2 bedroom apartment available in W'gong when we booked. The price when we booked was very good (a special) and included breakfast. The room located on the 4th floor overlooked Gladstone Avenue (the main road) and was quite noisy. Higher up may be better. There are no "eaterys" close by but there are plenty within...

This hotel was a real mixed bag. I booked in a hurry and the with some terror saw a few recent reviews that said the bathrooms were 'filthy'. We arrived after midnight and easily found our key in the lockbox. Parking was secure but very tight- glad we have a mid sized hatchback! The room, which I approached with some...

Room was good size but not clean at all . Sheets were stained, carpet wasnt vacuumed, tiles weren't scrubbed. Tv remote didn't have batteries. Not a lot of food outlets close by, had to drive to get food.

Not sure if some apartments here are more modern than others but mine was lovely. Large, clean and everything was very comfortable. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, domestic appliances and comfy beds. Great that parking is free undercover, but not so great having to pay $10 for internet in this day and age and the minibar items are really expensive...
