Comfy, nicely presented rooms, interesting paintings (for a hotel), good service. The receptionist happily checked us in an hour early at no charge. Good place to get ready for an event with decent bathrooms & lots of full length mirrors. A little pricey though & extra for parking.

This is a nice place to stay while attending conferences near the South Bank. The room was a studio with a view of the city. The room was spacious, well appointed for eating meals and heating them up. There was only single lounge chair and one desk chair which wasn't great. Beautiful hot water and good bathroom apart from the... More

Is arrived very tired and a bit out of sorts after long line at the airport. Receptionist very offhand and insists on CC even though room prep aids. Told me I could not be booked in without it, which is not correct. Initially put into a very noisy room suitable only for train spotters. Moved to a better room. This... More

My husband stayed for work then I joined him for the weekend. In reality it is a 3 star. Missing fresh milk, good coffee, bath robes,mugs etcetera. Not even a 'can I call a cab for you?' When leaving with bags. Nothing. I normally stay at similar rated but the no service here was not worth it. It's a try... More

We only had 1 night here but were very pleased with our choice. Staff were efficient and helpful and check-in and check-out was quite quick. Our room was a deal with breakfast included and that was a great decision as it was great quality and delicious. Instead of the usual dishes with too much cooked at once so it goes... More

I have just experienced a very unsatisfactory experience again with the Mantra group, more specifically the Mantra South Bank. Firstly, I was told that I would receive a refund, minus a $25 cancellation fee if cancelled outside of 2 weeks prior to the booking date - this was in fact incorrect and I had to received $175 credit, and then...

We stayed at the Mantra as I was celebrating a birthday at Southbank and found that the location to everything was great. We booked a package that had the room, breakfast and discounted valet parking for 2 nights.

We had just one night here and I wish we could've stayed longer. Spacious studio apartment, comfy bed and very handy for our night at the Gabba! We booked a weekend special which included a great buffet breakfast and discounted valet parking. Will definitely book again when in Brisbane.

Enjoyed a 1 night get away in Brisbane for work but had night out once finished. Accomodation was beautiful big room with great view to Southbank and up Grey St. Room clean and tidy and staff very helpful. Would go back again anyday.
