We had a 2 bedroom apartment and stayed for 3 days. The staff were wonderful and really went out of their way for us. Particular thanks to Amanda who was so helpful. Beds were large and comfortable, rooms were clean and modern and the kitchen and laundry had everything we needed. The best thing was the Mantra was so close... More

Stayed for a few nights to visit friends. The room was nice, it had all the basic amenities and a comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and check in/out was simple. Parking was $12 a day but reasonable enough to keep my car secure and frost-free on those cold Canberra mornings. The pool was a bit of a hassle to... More

When visiting family in Canberrea we have always stayed here. The rooms are great. Clean. Spacious. Restaurant has great choice to suit most palates. This time however, it was a disappointing dinner booking that marred our stay. We had made a booking when checking in for the two of us and two outside guests (family). Unfortunately the service was far... More

I thought I would take a chance and book a mystery overnight accommodation and it ended up being Mantra on Northbourne, Canberra. The price was very reasonable and we ended up with a 1 bedroom apartment with washing machine, dryer, full kitchen and it goes on. We were both completely happy and definitely will return one day.

Great central Hotel to stay at in Canberra. Rooms/apartments are large and spacious, well equipped kitchens and all you need for a long stay. Nice and clean, friendly staff, good room service menu and we enjoyed our meals. Easy walk into the city center.

First of all the bed was comfortable. That's the only good thing I can say. Our room had mould in the bathroom, the airconditioner rattled and we had to have it turned up to 30 to get any kind of warmth. The TV remote fell apart in my hands and we could only change stations in one direction. Worse, I... More

Stayed on the 9th level and was great to have nice view. Reception on arrival was very flat and very unwelcoming. The room was very clean and presentable. How ever the trip was soured by the lack of car spaces and so many 'reserved' spaces not being used. I had a lot of trouble finding a park, i was charged... More
