We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. Rooms are big. Spotlessly clean. The only negatives for this place was the tiny pool and the towels were not changed. Location is very good and views from room were fab. Would def recommend this place 😀

A well maintained hotel in a central location, but there are a few traps for beginners. As others have mentioned there is quite a bit of noise from neighbouring pubs but I'm not convinced that there really is a quieter side of the property. Requesting a room "overlooking the inlet" still meant we were right next to the pub noise,... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights in a one bedroom apartment in the prime location on the corner of Macrossan and Wharf street. The Queenlander style decor was very attractive and the apartment was quite spacious and extremely clean. There was a balcony overlooking Macrossan street to enjoy meals outdoors and to watch the passing parade, a is pool available,... More

3 days of the 5, showers were cold- hmmm not exactly what we were hoping for! Also the stained sheets on arrival were such just an "interesting" touch- and when we complained they wanted to charge us- to which we declined. Very unhappy with our stay here such a shame- tried not let it ruin the holiday!

Stayed in a one bedroom suite for 3 nights. Beautifully furnished and clean with a roomy balcony. There is a luggage lift but no lift for guests; our suite was on the top floor and the stairs were manageable; however, you might need to specially request a lower room if mobility is an issue. Handy undercover parking. Noise was not... More

Our initial impression on arrival was "OH NO". The rooms we booked on line, looked a lot better in the photo than in reality - would not recommend them for more than a nights stay. They are small and have no balcony, only windows opening to a walkway. We upgraded to a suite, well worth the extra cost in terms... More

This was a decent room for the price. We were there for a week and the fridge dryer and microwave all broke. Our fridge also had a rancid smell the third night and we were told to try and call someone in the morning. Facility was nice balcony was great! Would stay again

The room (1 bed apartment) was roomy and spacious. A deck (overlooking the court house hotel roof) was large and with the bifold glass doors open it created a large open area. The bed was comfortable although there was no caster stops, so the whole bed rolled anywhere when you sit on it. Room had a good size (2 people... More

Dear Jamestold, Thank you for taking the time to review Mantra on the Inlet. Our apartments are very spacious and have a great “Queenslander” feel to them, our guests also love the two person spa in all our apartments. However as you noted being located in the heart of town there can be a bit of noise from the nearby... More
