I recently stayed at The Mantra Wollongong and had a wonderful stay. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and were on the 5th floor. The rooms were all very clean and looked very modern. The staff were all great and very friendly. Our room had an ensuite with the main bedroom, and a second bathroom which had a shower/bath. The... More

My husband and I have just spent three nights at The Mantra Wollongong during the 27th-29th June 2014. We were extremely disappointed at the level of accommodation relating to the price of $310.00 a night with no breakfast. When you get a queen size bed, with a separate disabled shower that has no plug in the basin and water all... More

We recently stayed at the Matra Wollongong as our daughter was playing in the NSW State Age Netball Championships near by in the Illawarra Region. We had a two bedroom apartment and would recommend this accommodation, however there are some minor attention to detail that the hotel needs to work on and awareness of major events. Check in was very... More

It was terrible, I complained but the manager was rude and didn't help. The other staff were nice though. The ocean views are more like ocean glimpses. And there was someone's hairbrush in the room. It was so pricey as well and so far from everything. Felt like we were in an industrial area. The balconies werent even facing the... More

Space and room facilities were great but furnishings were old. Walls were paper thin, could hear everything. Overall was not as good as other mantra I've stayed at but was good for our family given the price we got from wotif.

The accommodation was superb, we had a lovely stay in the one bedroom apartment, it was clean and tidy and the staff were helpful. We were in walking distance to restaurants and shops but the beach is a little further so take the car if you have one. It was a nice experience

The hotel looks great on the outside. The rooms need painting and our Air cone was quite noisy. No TV in the bedroom. Breakfast was plain and uninspiring. The rooms are quite large and the bed was pretty good. Lounge not at all comfortable, for me !
