Our only disappointment was that Covid reduced our stay from 4 nights to one. The Ocean view apartment was well worth the extra money, the views were beautiful. Nice little deck. Very clean, comfortable and roomy. Good sized separate lounge, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and functional laundry. Woolworths is just a short 5 minute walk away and the location is central to a lot of things.

They can't guarantee a car park, but if one is available an extra fee of $15.00 per day.

Would definitely stay here again.

Firstly pay the extra to be in the ocean side - not only is the stunning view worth it but it is much quieter than the being at the back of the hotel which outlooks to hostels and a noisey precinct with restaurants, bars etc. The rooms - fittings and furnishing are very dated but clean and functional. They are more small apartments than hotel rooms and the way they are configured minimises any hall noise. The washing machine, dryer and small kitchen were great, good wi-fi, comfortable bed and lovely to have the extra space of a separate lounge and tv area. The little balcony was also nice to sit and watch the sunset. The staff at checkin were friendly and parking easy and reasonably priced. There were a few small annoyances - the air conditioning cannot be set temperature wise, your options are fan based to 3 speeds and it was pretty noisey. The restaurants in the hotel are all shut due to COVID so there is no room service etc. However, I have to say overall because our room was so well positioned we had 3 very nice nights and I would stay there again.

Luved everything about the Mantra - our one bedroom harbour view room was very spacious and clean - beds were very comfy and kitchen had everything you needed. The bathroom was outdated but still clean and having a washing machine and dryer was an added bonus. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was fantastic ... would stay again

Room tip: High floor with harbor view

Check in staff welcoming and helpful. Covid safe protocols evident. Housekeeping staff exemplary, with attention to detail. 1 bedroom apartment spacious and kitchen well equipped. Washing machine and clothes dryer in the bathroom. Outdoor furniture on reasonable sized balcony. Swimming pool open for use.

Room tip: request harbor view as city view lower floors can suffer from noisy hostel neighbors

Friends shared a 3 bedroom apartment. It has great facilities with kitchen and 2 bathrooms. We had a washing machine and dryer. Lounge area is comfortable plus a verandah from which we could see the water. One of us used the pool. Nice... quite refreshing.. cool.
Position is excellent with very short walking distance to restaurants and to Coles.
One does get some noise from drunks at night in the street so a light sleeper would be better asking for an upper level.
Reception was helpful and small problems were quickly attended to.
The room could do with a good clean as bathrooms were a bit mouldy and carpet dusty in corners.
Major criticism is that the second bathroom had a shower over the bath with poorly positioned handles to get into the bath so it was a slip hazard.
