Staff were very helpful and provided a lovely food platter on arrival. 2 bedroom apartment had 270 degree views of the Arts Centre and Sports Precinct to the east. Apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean with a... More

Stayed at Mantra Southbank last weekend as part of a bucks celebration. The room itself was pretty neat and clean (2 bedroom apartment). The beds were very comfy (especially the pillows). The hallway leading up to the room looks kinda dated and old but nothing to fuss about. Even though it was a bucks and at times there were about... More

I have stayed here many times.... mainly due to the close proximity to southbank and the city. It is well priced, and all of the rooms I have stayed in have been fine. I normally stay in corner room, or double balcony room and these have been fine. They are probably a decade out of date, but nothing that is... More

Booked a one bedroom apartment, was very spacious & had great kitchen facilities, room was clean and bed was comfy. The hotel pool & spa area was very nice, all the staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was YUM ! Would definitely stay there again. Good location too, just a short walk to central Southbank area.
