Location is good. Short walk to main shopping mall, supermarkets and local attractions. We booked a three bedroom apartment and requested a quiet position but it was not. Street and pub noise makes sleeping difficult which is a shame. Our accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. Although it's showing it's age that isn't a problem. There were a few minor...

We didn't choose this hotel but it was just fine for our needs. Handy location, very clean and luckily we asked to have a specially quiet room. So were not disturbed by street noise or pub noise from across the road. Comfortable bed. The staff were extra helpful and really offered to help with all manner of things - they... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment in January for 10 days. The facilities were great, especially having a washing machine/dryer. Even though we didn't eat in the restaurant downstairs, it must be good as it was packed every night. The staff were very helpful (though one guy at reception was a bit serious) and the rooms were very well... More

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

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.
