5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

My wife and myself did our usual research on Trip Advisor and other sites as we had booked a two week cruise on the Sun Princess out of Darling Harbour. We where looking for accomodation for six days with self catering facilities, close to the Action and boy did we choose the correct hotel and location. If we could give THE Mantra On Kent 10 stars we would. Great SERVICE Great LOCATION and great PRICE.The front of house team could not have been more friendly and efficient.We used Room service and the restaurant on the first day (untill we purchased our supplies for our self catering) and the team there again where great,nothing was to much trouble to anyone. Our studio apartment was refreshed daily to our suprise as in other establishments we have used,the word self meant self ! but not here. It was our first extended stay in Sydney and when we return it will be at only one place. To All the Team at The Mantra On Kent Thank You.

Room Tip: Ask for a floor at the rear above floor twelve as you get a good view of Darling Harbour over the W...

Stayed 2 nights in a studio apartment for business. Location was very close to Cockle Wharf and the city centre. The apartment was very roomy and clean and modern. It had a bath and shower and a washing machine and dryer, a fridge, hairdryer, Sink, Microwave, oven cooktop, king size bed, tv with free to air and some pay channels and a DVD player. The sofa could sleep a 3rd person and there was enough crockery cutlery and glassware for 3.

The satff were very friendly and always helpful. Breakfast was $15 for a buffet which was good value.

We booked a family suite (two separate rooms with a central entrance foyer), which gave plenty of room for a couple, baby, and two friends - it also meant the babysitter could relax and watch TV in one room while the baby slept in the adjoining room. Location is close to Cockle Bay and the attractions of Darling Harbour, shopping in QVB/city and trains at Town Hall Station. Secure parking very reasonable at the parking station next door ($12/day on weekends). Full kitchen and laundry included in suite, so great for a longer stay family break.

Our family of 5 adults stayed in connecting roomsn 24th floor where a single entrance branched off into 2 units: thus we were able to close off each room for privacy when needed. The room my husband, myself and my adult son shared was very roomy and I particularly liked the fact that we could screen our bed with sliding glass doors for a bit of extra privacy. The rooms were spacious as was the bathroom; appointments modern but comfortable.

The location was excellent: 2 minutes to Darling Harbour and China Town and 2 minutes to Westfield and the heart of the shopping precinct.

The staff were extremely obliging and helpful: even processing our airport check-in for us.

As it was a short trip (2 nights) to attend a wedding, we didnt have the opportunity to dine in-house but I investigated the restaurant and it appeared very welcoming.

I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again.

Dear Christine M,

Its great to see that you enjoyed your time in Sydney and that you found our apartments comfortable and out team obliging and helpful.

Our dual-key 2 bedroom apartments are very popular as they offer additional space for a family, as well as being able to be split off for additional privacy when required.

Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you and your family again soon.

Kind regards,

We stayed for 3 nights in early March. We arrived quite some hours before the official checkin time, and the reception staff happily stored our bags and then later rang to confirm our room was ready. During our stay the staff were lovely and ever so helpful - their service, smiles and attitudes were great. The location is terrific, it's a very easy walk to Darling Harbour, monorail stop, ferries and so on. Our room was a one bedroom apartment, and it was a bit plain and dreary - nothing to rave about but it was satisfactory and a decent sized space, and clean and tidy. Slight hiccup one morning - I was sitting in bed and thought I heard something at the door, and a male staff member then walked in - we both got a bit of a surprise but he hastily departed. Perhaps a very loud knock might have been better then what was instead a fairly quiet entry.

Dear BrisbaneNicky,

Thank you for taking the time to provide your positive feedback on your recent stay.

I am pleased to see that the team were able to assist with an early check in and that you enjoyed your stay in Sydney.

I can advise that we will soon commence a refurbishment of all apartments, lobby and restaurant which will add a whole new look to the property.

Please accept my apologies for the surprise experienced that morning. All housekeepers are trained in guest privacy but appears his knock was not as load as it should have been.

Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Mantra on Kent in the near future.

Kind regards,

Daniel Russell
