Chose this place on price mainly given I was on a budget and not many hotels cater for 4 people. I did request two single beds and was given a queen bed with no explanation but chose not to query it. The place is immaculately clean and well appointed. All facilities worked and the location was perfect. The staff were... More

Friendly service, accommodating & polite (not to mention not a bad mini bar), highly recommend to others looking at staying in Adelaide and close to the Aussie rules for those wanting affordability close to the games or Adelaide nightlife.

The family were looking for a two bedroom apartment in or near Rundle Mall - Adelaide for a four night stay. I am happy that we stayed at The Mantra on Frome as the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The kitchenette / dining area allowed for small family meals and the facilities are well maintained. The location is convenient... More

I think I am now up to my 60th stay in the last 3 years. I am disappointed when I can't get in and have to stay somewhere else. I get a great night's sleep, really enjoy the friendly staff Creina, Taylor and others, and just love it. I have also stayed here with my wife on social occasions as... More

We stayed three nights here and were initially attracted to this hotel for location reasons. The rooms were excellent and the staff friendly and unobtrusive. Being so close to everything was very important, the comfortable beds and quietness were a bonus as we were expecting to be out a lot of the time. We will definitely be staying here on... More

I have been staying in the heart of Adelaide's CBD for a few days a month, for several months, and am delighted with the experience at Mantra on Frome. I have been greeted (on separate occasions) by both Creina and Alastair, at check-in, they are both friendly, accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are very... More

Great location - close to shopping, bars and restaurants. Staff were very good, professional and polite. Rooms are certainly much better than other hotels in the price class. We had 3 so used the sofa bed which was fine. Easy for a short stay.

I visit Adelaide often for work and every time I come, I stay here. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff always go to great lengths to ensure that everything I ever need is available, and that my stay is perfectly comfortable. On a few occasions, without having to ask, they have gone out to purchase what I... More

Room and amenities were very good. There are relatively few restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but breakfast pack for $10 was ideal. Many other options are available for dinner, if you are prepared to walk a few hundred yards down Frome Street. For light meals there are many options nearer to Rundle Mall.

We stayed here for 6 nights. Positives: great location in CBD, Italian restaurant downstairs was lovely. Cheap nightly rate. Negatives: the bathroom was awfully old! They need to invest some money and re-do them. Car park very steep. Walls very thin. Could hear people talking next door. Only 3 Foxtel channels.
