I had friends from America visiting so I took them to Canberra. We stayed at the Mantra hotel. I had to apologise to them for such a poor choice. We booked a suite on the 9th floor. The suite was sparsely decorated. No personality, no warmth. You wanted to get out of the hotel the moment you arrived. Bathroom was... More

This hotel is located on the edge of Canberra City. It is an easy walk into town and to surrounding restaurants. I stayed here with my family over a weekend and then stayed for a work conference. The hotel backs onto the lively Braddon shopping area, which contains a number of wonderful restaurants and bars. The Canberra Convention centre is... More

Stayed for work at end of April. Turned up looking bedraggled after a very long day and staff were extremely empathetic. Room I had on 9th floor was awesome - lots of space and heating was great - perfect temperature. Breakfast was very good too and kept me fuelled for the day. This will be a preference of mine when...

The location and staff are great! Lonsdale street is right behind Mantra and has a wonderful selection of quirky shops and eateries. Could not have asked for better. Breakfast was lovely too with a huge selection of buffet items. The bathrooms are a bit dated and could do with some work.

My room was average at best. Scrapes and marks ALL over the walls which was really disappointing given initial positive impressions. The bathroom was awful. Again stains everywhere including hair in the bath/shower and fingerprints in the ceiling. Overall the room had a slightly 'shabby' feel to it. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Enjoyed a very professional and... More

Hotel is in good location, has clean rooms but is starting to feel a bit run down. Pool and gym are not bad, for the price you can't complain to much. Really nice view from the top floor. Good place for family's, defiantly not somewhere for a romantic weekend away. Hope this review helps.
