Rooms are nicely furnished, but the overall complex and area of Ettalong Beach is not that great. You are part of an overall Diggers complex - and the food down at the bistro is pretty average. The pool is also good for kids, although its not like a hotel pool where you can order drinks/food etc. It was a big... More

great lobby, attentive staff, nice rooms overlooking pool, comfy bed. Little in the way of crockery etc to use in the unit, would I go again? hhmm only if passing thru, and probably only to go to the diggers club next door. Towns a bit ordinary, Hotel kinda looks out of place. mixed feelings.

We tried to book in early but they were full, that was ok. We asked what floor we were going to be on and she said the 2nd. Considering we were paying for their best 1BR we thought we should be up higher, so they said they would see what they could do. When we came back to check in,... More

Stayed two nights in a one bedroom beach/pool view room, the facilities are excellent and everything you need is within a short walk from the hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the diggers club downstairs serves a fantastic meal for a great price. Absolute value for money, will definitely be back!!

After reading some of the reviews on the Mantra Ettalong I had mixed feelings about my booking. .. But on arrival the staff were more than helpful to make sure I was hapy with my room... As these are serviced apartments the rooms are not cleaned daily unless you pay a fee... but this was not a problem as the... More

2 night Stay in a 1 bedroom hinterland apartment with family. A bit expensive for 1bedrm. Beautiful and tranquil Ettalong Beach esplanade is just opposite to the hotel where you can find a kid's playground. Perfect for a walk under the moon light. Ettalong Diggers is adjacent to the hotel. $9 a meal with choices of pizza, pasta, curry, steak... More

The hotel itself is good but it's on a busy corner, so it's quite noisy. We won't be staying there again! We (a family of four) were totally wrecked the next day due to lack of sleep after a long drive. Facilities were good but we didn't feel all that safe walking too far from the hotel.

The hotel was completely booked out when we stayed, yet the staff were all amazing even though it was clearly busy. From the girls at the front desk to the cleaners we saw in the hallway, all were very friendly and helpful. The pool area is great when it wasnt busy. The spa is alittle small for the size of...

Staff where very nice. Our deluxe 1 bedroom apartment at first glance appeared presentable but after closer inspection it was a little disappointing. Tiles in bathroom and shower curtain had mold. Sofa had stains and should either be replaced or steamed cleaned. Would only recommend this type of accommodation for a very short stay and don't go during school holidays... More
