My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary in May and upon first arriving, we were put into a sea view room on the third floor. This room had no view and was so close to the spa area, we could hear people's conversations as though they were in the room with us. However, upon requesting a room change... More

The 1 bedroom deluxe suite with ocean view was fantastic: clean, modern, and spacious. Donna on the desk at reception was very friendly. Great location to boot! My only point for improvement would be to provide more information in the room about local eating options since the hotel has no restaurant; at night the town is quiet and we didn't... More

I really, really enjoyed my long weekend away with my husband for our babymoon. Just over an hour drive from Sydney Mantra was clean, spacious and friendly. I had a few treatments at the spa and the therapist was fantastic. The food at the Ettalong Diggers was good reliable club food. Can not complain about anything on our stay 😊

The accomodation is quite good. It is not advisable to have a room opposite the pool, smoker son the verandah pollute the whole area. This especially effects those with a lung condition. In future bookings we would prefer a room in another area. The staff are all helpful and very polite.

Mantra has no simple room service like ice bucket & ice, no cold water in the fridge or ice cubes. Freezer was so thick with ice we could not even chill bottle wine or make ice cubes. Staff were apologetic but didn't seem to care one way or the other.
