We booked a mystery holiday and were allocated flights to Adelaide, and staying at Mantra on frome. We could not have been more delighted, the only negatives were that our flight landed at 6.50am, we attended the hotel at 11.30am and were told could not check in until 2pm, so we went to the Zoo. The other negative is the... More

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from the centre of the city, shopping and sights of Adelaide. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful and our room was exactly what you would expect. It was clean and comfortable and quiet. Nice bathroom and a good shower. No free in room wifi, but available in reception. However,... More

I travelled to Adelaide for business and stayed in this hotel for one night. The room was a bit tired and the bed not that comfortable, although the choice of pillows was nice. Other folks have mentioned the air con freezing up and leaking, but there is a warning about this in the instructions (i.e. don't turn it down too... More

My husband and I, together with two adult children, stayed six nights in a two bedroom apartment at Mantra on Frome during the Adelaide Fringe Festival in February. Service was friendly and efficient, from reception to cleaning staff. Location was perfect for accessing Fringe venues and restaurants. Kitchen had everything we wanted, and our pre-ordered groceries were packed away before... More

Pros: Easy to find/locate. Freindly and helpful reception. Room was spacious. bed was comfortable Cons: loud and inneffective aircon. Dispite closing all the windows, mosquito's kept appearing- or maybe they were already present in the room before arrival but were only noticed when attempting to sleep.

Stayed here for 1 night, found the room on the Internet and the pictures looked good. The room was clean, but very small, good camera work with a wide-angle lens! Bed was comfy, air con was great, but the drains in the bathroom needed a very good clean, very stinky, and we went out for tea and forgot to close... More

Awesome room, walked to the mall for some shopping before walking down to the fringe festival, great location. Close to pubs and transport. Modern appliances and a shower head I could actually stand up under!

I am a frequent visitor to Adelaide, mainly for business purposes. When events such as the Fringe or Clipsal V8 Racing coincides this hotel is perfectly located. Under cover parking, the staff very helpful, the rooms clean and well presented. Mantra on Frome provides a safe environment for myself and my family. Thank you for caring, cheers.

I have been staying here weekly for almost a year and I would highly recommend this place. The facilities are great and the staff are friendly. The resturaunt downstairs is highly recommended. The hotel is in the CBD but out of the main part of the CBD so is quiet at night.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in. 2 bedroom apartment. The reservation process worked well. The apartment was compact which is not unexpected for a city location. One problem was that there was a 2 seater lounge and a single chair in the living area, so one person had to sit on a dining chair or the... More
