This hotel meets all usual standards and is in a good location with easy walking to Canberras main shops and business centre. The car parking is somewhat limited during the week as it is used by guests as well as casual parking for conferences etc. No guarantee of a spot.

All of the things you expect such as good staff, efficient check in and out and clean rooms are there. Not the tip of the hotel food chain but still good. It has a convenient location. The self contained rooms have everythimg you need but I'm not keen on the large warnings about a call out fee if the stove... More

We stayed for two nights at the Mantra during our trip to Canberra. The one bedroom apartment was shared with another couple for our stay. The room itself was nice. It had been softly refurbished ( new carpet, furniture etc) but the bathroom and kitchen was a little bit on the old side. The living space was spacious and comfortable.... More

I enjoyed this hotel. Great amount of space in the 50 metre unit. Enjoyed the balcony. There is also a washing machine and dryer. The bed was comfortable and so was the lounge.The food was nice. I enjoyed the two hour happy hour from 5 to 7.

I moved from the competition across the road where my back did not appreciate the soft mattresses. The Mantra is not brand new, but still offered a spacious room (I stayed in 602) that was clean and comfortable. Everything was where it should be, and employees were helpful and friendly. I had breakfast in my room on day 1, and... More

We had a very comfortable stay utilising two of the apartment suites. The rooms were clean on arrival, and the staff were very willing to accommodate our requests for a cot, removing the contents of the mini-bar from the kid's room and locking the TV. Breakfast finished quite early, so on a couple of the mornings where we had a... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a one bed apartment on south side of hotel. Room deal was excellent value. Room itself was quite spacious, an older room of 3 to 3.5 star standard.

Stayed in room 313 as a transit stop for 3 nights. The room is very tired and in much need of a refurbishment. The apartment itself is self contained, with VERY old appliances including the stove, microwave, toaster, fridge and airconditioner(s).As the apartment is quite old, it almost made it feel dirty. The smell was stale, to the point where... More

We booked via "wot if" and found the Mantra on a mystery booking. Had a pleasant surprise with a great room fully appointed with full kitchen and laundry facilities. The heated pool was a little small when shared with the kids on holidays but very clean with towels provided as part of the booking. Staff were really friendly and helpful.... More

Staying at the Mantra on Northbourne for three weeks gave me the opportunity to try out a few different rooms - not by choice but chasing an air-conditioner that works. Yeah, I'm unfortunate enough to be there for the three weeks that are hot enough to require air-con and they kept conking out on me. Well not to worry too... More
