The Mantra Marina has wonderful lakeside suites with a fabulous view, televisions, wifi, Nespresso machine, washing facilities, fully appointed kitchen, etc. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. We had a two bedroom/two bathroom suite, so we had plenty of space for 4 people. The lounge area had good size leather lounges provided, as well as a dining table and... More

We loved the 3 Bedroom we had for 5 people. My 2 daughters and one boyfriend 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms were perfect. It was nice to have space to be indoors or outdoors. BBQ, access to the beach and Great kitchen. We were in 306 an end unit close to the road but you could not hear any noise.... More

The reviews of Mantra are rather mixed, and if you go through a few of them, you would understand why. Those that have chosen to stay in the apartments and not hotel rooms seemed to be a lot happier with it. We have stayed one night in a 2 bedroom apartment that has lake view (only partial). But that was... More

We stayed two nights in a Hotel Room. It was a fairly standard room, with a large bed, small TV and a nice ensuite. However, there were three things that we wish we had known before we stayed there. One: the pillows are very flat and offer no cushion. While the bed was comfortable, the pillows were awful. We asked... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. Rooms were really trendy. Helpful staff at the reception. Close to airport but not so close to the city centre. Only apartments facing the lake therefor no lake views if you are staying in a room. But easy access to lake. If you are into watching tv the television in the hotel... More

We stayed for two nights in a tiny one room apartment with a door that joined to a larger apartment. The apartment was clean and modern and the king sized bed was comfortable. Unfortunately the gentleman in residence in the adjoining apartment liked to make loud spitting noises and the conversations between he and his partner could be clearly heard... More

The hotel rooms are exactly that. Bed, bathroom. That's all you need. We had 5 of us and got an apartment. 5 mins from the airport The bus to wanka, remarkables, treble cone all come past the front of the hotel. 10 min bus ride into town. If you're going to spend a week there. Bring some Mates get an... More

We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a two bedroom apartment (despite booking one of the hotel-style rooms). The apartment was self-contained and had a full kitchen as well as a washer and dryer, which was handy with a longer stay in Queenstown. The location was very picturesque and the hotel is right on the lake. We had amazing... More

I decided to take my wife for her birthday to the glorious location of Queenstown, New Zealand. Going to the Webjet website and searching through the large number of hotels on offer. I decided on the Mantra Marina. The pictures of the offering that was given that day showed an apartment-like situation with a lake view that would have been... More

Very spacious light room with partial view of mountains. Clean and very comfortable bed with modern furnishings and excellent shower facilities. There were however some disadvantages. There was no iron or ironing board and microwave . We were short of a teaspoon and fork and went to reception to get replacements! Sadly the receptionist did not know what a TEASPOON... More
