We stayed for 2 nights at the Mantra Southbank. Great location, close to QPAC and Southbank. We were very happy with our room, great city views and very clean. Couldn't fault. The buffet breakfast was very good. And most of all , we were impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. They made our stay extra special.

I like the mantra having stayed twice on business. Both times I managed to check in well before the allocated time which helps enormously. Place is fresh, the pool and spa is more than adequate and the location is spot on. Only irritating thing this time was only one bar tender with a function and walk ins so it was... More

We had a one night stay at this hotel about a week ago. I must admit that I was looking forward to relaxing on a balcony admiring the view. What a disappointment - the only view from our 'balcony' was a brick wall. We were on the third floor but we faced the brick wall of another building - no... More

Great hotel for a business trip given the location and amenities. I appreciated the willingness of management to take on feedback to update their breakfast menu and mini bar selection. Small things that can make a stay more comfortable.

This hotel is slap bang in the middle of the Southbank in Brisbane - not far to get to the city centre either. The manmade lagoon and beach on the Southbank is a lovely place to visit in the evening whether you want to go for a paddle or just walk around it. The hotel is very clean, our room... More

Stayed 2 nights at Mantra Southbank after attending musical at Lyric Theatre at QPAC. My wife and I enjoyed the spoils away from the kids as anniversary date. With all the attractions of southbank and views towards the Brisbane CBD the mantra is an affordable apartment option. Will return

This is a modern and fresh hotel, right near Southbank in Brisbane.

Way too many hidden costs. $35 for parking and have to pay extra for wifi. It wasn't a cheap hotel in the first place. Never felt comfortable as I never knew what the next hidden cost was going to be.
