I can safely say that my first time staying at Mantra won't be my last. Everything was exceptional, from the check-in to checkout. When I needed help or a question answered, it was given quickly, efficiently and with no condescension. I can't stress that enough, the difference between a hotel feeling comfortable and uncomfortable is often how you are treated... More

Asked for tea pot - tick, nice teas - tick, said they would not launder my towels if I hung them up & they didn't - tick. Can open window for some fresh air - tick (plus furnishings etc all lovely). Simple things make all the difference.

This hotel is ideal for those attending the Brisbane convention centre or keen to spend time Southbank. Only a short walk acorss the beautiful Brisbane river to the centre of the city (10minutes). It is totally modern with clean public and private spaces. This is totally my ideal hotel with clean modern functionality, pleasant staff, and moderate price.

Another QPAC visit and a stay at the Mantra South Bank. The team at MSB were very efficient as usual. A special mention for Jamie our waitress at Stones Restaurant.made our pre show dinner very enjoyable.

Really nice hotel however if you have a room on the western side be prepared for the train noise. The train line is so close to the hotel it's like being on grand central station. Would probably stay somewhere else next time. Also the parking is a bit awkward as they only have 3 spaces on the street to park... More

Great hotel and brilliant location. For a business stay, it's close enough and central to the city. But what I love most is that it feels almost like a holiday destination. Excellent restaurants and walks along the river...a guilty pleasure after a long working day! The staff were really friendly and the rooms are well appointed, modern and quiet.

Stayed here for just one night as we were off to see Wicked at QPAC. The location ideal to QPAC (5min walk) and shops/restaurants of Southbank. Check in smooth and staff friendly. Standard/studio room clean. If there is one thing I could suggest for this room (201) is a full length mirror. We were right by the gym, pool and... More

We stayed two nights in February 2015 to attend medical facilities at South Brisbane and were most impressed. The room was spacious with separate bedroom and balcony with the living dining area very well serviced by a well equipped kitchen. Our room fronted Grey St and was on level 3 but due to good design and sound proofing traffic noise... More
