Location was good for dining, shopping and in walking distance to the Adelaide Zoo. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which had plenty of room only having the one child. The facilities in the room were good with pay per view movies for the quiet nights in once the little one had gone to bed. The only negative being... More

We stayed in room 301 for a romantic weekend away, pros - comfy bed, quiet, Andres restaurant downstairs was a great experience, balcony which meant we could let fresh air in the room cons - weird room layout, feels like it's waiting to be renovated, the bed has walls wrapping around it with apparently pointless glass sliding doors that don't...

I've stayed here three times now for work trips. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms, while a bit dated, are quite cosy and create more of a homey feel than a sterile hotel feel, which is appreciated for this regular traveler. The kitchen is very well stocked with all the implements needed to self-cater. Parking is onsite... More

We stayed in two bedroom apartment for one night. Good value for money, clean and spacious enough for the four of us. Great location for local dining although we dined downstairs at Andre's Cucina & Polent Bar which was amazing. Parking option was a short walk as when booking online it didn't give me an option to book a car... More

Clean, tidy and centrally located. All dishes were spotless on arrival and the sofa bed was made up and ready to go. Bathroom/laundry was a bit of a squeeze. Overnight parking charge was $18 but that seemed about par for the course. Good selection of movies on offer too. Only gripe I have is that internet connection was charged at... More

We had just the one night stay as we went to a 40th at the General Havlock Hotel on Hutt st.

I stayed here recently with four other family members and found the apartment comfortably accommodated all of us. We stayed in a spacious three bedroom apartment, the facilities were of a good standard (although the paint work was a little scuffed and the soft furnishings were showing some wear). The twin bedroom was ok, but you couldn't open the door... More

The Mantra was everything it promised it would be. Our one-bedroom apartment was clean, modern and comfortable. Space was used cleverly and the view of the city at night (with a little traffic noise which you would expect in the CBD) was definitely a highlight for us! The mini-bar was well stocked, the bed was super comfortable and the kitchen... More
