Great location only a 5 minute walk to town and a bus stop outside the door. The staff on the desk were friendly and helpful. The 1 bedroom apartment was clean and as there were no twin rooms left they set up a roll away bed at no cost before we checked in. WiFi was included in our package as... More

Mantra Northbourne doesn't pretend to be a 5 star hotel, but deserves a 5 Tripadvisor rating for being non pretentious and simply offering good, spacious, clean accommodation with a very enjoyable restaurant at a reasonable price in the heart of Canberra.

Larger than usual hotel room. No ensuitef but has a lovely bathroom with a twin head shower. Hotel has a restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Went for breakfast, a bit light on buffet but was cooked well. Didn't have good wifi connection unfortunately.

I recently stayed at the Mantra on Northbourne for both business and leisure for a month. The location is just perfect, within the CBD area where you could found loads of shopping, food and fun.

The room (107) was quite large with a very comfortable queen size bed. The room has a ironing board and iron. The bathroom was a good size, with soap, bath gel and shampoo provided.... More

I have stayed at the Mantra quite a few times and each time the room has been clean and well furnished. I have stayed in a studio room, a one bedroom and a two bedroom apartment over time. All have been quite a pleasant experience with more than enough facilities for those that like to "eat at home". I have... More

We stayed in a family room and it was fantastic, the kids had their own domain in a separate room. They thought it was the best thing ever! The staff were amazing and the buffet breakfast was a great way to start our trip to the snow!

Great place to stay. Handy to everything. Staff very helpful and really friendly. Got a great price at the Tourist info centre down the road and no extra for parking the car on site. Very clean room with great bed and large TV. Daily newspapers are free. Great size room.
