Hair dryer & kettle out of date with electrical checks... Wouldn't normally worry but hair dryer sparked while drying my daughter's hair. Reception's response was NOT 'sorry' or 'is everyone ok?', but I don't know if we have another one and then left me on hold for 10 minutes before having to then wait another 15 mins for one to...

Stayed in a hotel room for my latest trip to Canberra and the 'soft renovations' (new carpet etc) are great. Super comfortable stay at a great price due to the renos, with a complimentary bottle of wine thrown in. Fantastic value for money end so close to the CBD. Having a comfy chair in the room would make it 11/10.

Mantra on Northbourne Arrived after a long bus ride to a quick check in and room allocation. Upon arrival to our room (820) it was nice.... Simple layout with kitchen, dining and bedroom and pleasantly spacious. The air con remote in the lounge could do with replacing as it has seen better days. A bit disappointing that there is no...

Central, spacious, quiet and clean apartment. Put both air cons on and room warmed up nicely. Dine in meal not pleasant. Breakfast not great quality. Staff and service ok. Overall it was ok for one night but would eat elsewhere.

Even though undergoing refurbishment, the apartments are clean and accommodating, the staff are friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful. Minimal noise or interruption from the ongoing refurbishment which made for a pleasurable stay

Our room was a very large apartment with a very comfortable bed and all the amenities one would need. There is an onsite restaurant, but it was very expensive. The hotel was a little further up Northbourne than we realized, so a bit of a walk to the hop-on bus and the shopping mall.

I planned a last minute day and half trip to Canberra and spent one night at Mantra after my original choice of accommodation booked full. I'm really glad that happened! The hotel room at Mantra was amazingly large and spacious. Much more than a single traveler needed and even bigger than the apartment where I reside. The room has a... More

Stayed at the Mantra for three days and was pleasantly surprised. Before arriving, I had emailed the hotel and requested a quiet room & parking. I received an email telling me that neither could be guaranteed, but upon arrival,, the reception staff were aware of both requests, and had ensured that I had a very quiet room on 9th floor....
