We had a long weekend and loved the place. We traveled with our 2 year old and found it a great spot to park the car and leave it there (although drive for fish and chips). The rooms are equipped with everything you need including a washing machine, although they are starting to get a little dated. It is 1... More

Stayed in a Studio with spa which is great if you can step into it for a shower as it is very high. No service at all and the staff have a "Who Cares Attitude". The location is beautiful and you can get water views , mine however looked at a massive rendered wall and I had superb views of... More

Stayed at the hotel due to the fact it looks like the nicest in the area, and left bitterly disappointed. The hotel itself was nice enough, a bit on the cheap side, the area itself was also nice enough. The trouble began when one of the rooms we had hired had a problem and my mother who was in that...

Booked a superior two bedroom room for three ladies having a weekend away. We arrived at the allocated check in time of 2.00 to find that our room was not ready. After half and hour of waiting we finally got to our very disappointing room. We found that the second bedroom was so tiny that there was barely any room... More

We booked over booking.com a week prior to our arrival. When we arrived we were told we had booked the wrong dates. We called booking.com and they confirmed we had the correct dates. The staff at the hotel were not going to admit we had the correct dates, the girl was so rude, arrogant, and dismissive. We could hear the... More

We stayed on the 6th floor during the G20 in Brisbane as an escape. The room was excellent with a view over the hotel pool and over the ocean so we could watch the ferry coming in and out. It was all clean, tidy and quiet.

Dear BitterHops, It is a pleasure to know that we were able to provide you with a nice relaxing break away from Brisbane during the G20 summit. Our Hotel certainly has picturesque views over Brisbane water and watching the ferry travel from Ettalong to Palm Beach is almost a relaxing as travelling on the ferry for a great day trip.... More

We love this little spot of the Central Coast. It's an easy 90 minute drive from Sydney, and even though the Mantra seems a little large and resort like as you drive up to it, it is actually surrounded by so much local life that after you check in, kick off the city shoes, put on a pair of thongs...

For a non-serviced apartment set up, I was impressed. The one bedroom apartment was spacious and impeccably clean. The balcony was huge but the outdoor furniture sparse. The whole place felt really friendly and welcoming and the location is perfect for a good, relaxing break with kids in tow. The food options are a little limited in the area, a... More

Perfectly located on the beach in beautiful Ettalong, walking distance to cafes and shops. Spacious fully equipped room made for a very comfortable stay with a baby. The rooms and hotel were both very clean and the facilities were great.

Great place to visit with a young family - fantastic pool and apartment and arranging a travel cot and late check out couldn't have been easier. Made our first weekend escape with a young baby very special.
