I stayed here back in 2012. Very comfortable, great location on the South Bank, friendly helpful staff. Couldn't fault anything about the place... except that the Australian cricket team were also staying here at the time. So I had Ricky Ponting on the table next to me at breakfast. Not sure if they still like to stay here but for... More

We booked the Mantra as we were celebrating our son's 21st and the location was perfect. When we booked the hotel on line we requested an early check in at 11.30am, so we could organise the final details for the night. On the morning at 9.00am we phoned to check if we were able to check in at 11.30am and... More

We stayed for two nights at the Mantra in South Bank, Brisbane so we could relax, see a show and dine out. The first problem we had was that there was nowhere to stop anywhere near the Mantra if the loading zone at the front door is already full. We drove around the block several times, before I finally found... More

This hotel is ideally located in the Southbank precinct. Plenty of eateries easy walking distance . We had a very basic hotel room on a good deal so was a little concerned when only on 3rd floor. However, the soundproofing is excellent . The room was small but suited our needs of a simple place to rest our head. Breakfast... More
