We recently stayed overnight at the Mantra Wollongong. Very easy check in and parking not a problem. We were in room 606. Lovely room, surprisingly big room! Well equipped with everything you could need! Fully equipped kitchen! Very adequate for us. Buffet breakfast in the morning was nice. Not a massive selection but very nice all the same. It was...

i booked this last minute on a trip from Sydney - Wollongong is a strange nondescript place. The hotel is next to the train station. We booked a superior room on the 6th floor - I'd hate to see a standard. The room was battered and contained television guide from sept - it was nov!! No television in the bedroom... More

We only stayed here for 1 night. The apartment was a good size, with everything you need in it. There is undercover parking as well. Breakfast was included and this was very good. There isn't much around this area to see or do.

We always prefer serviced apartments. This was great. Good value for a 2 bedroom apartment. Room size excellent. Plenty of parking. Elevator only frustration. To have to wait over 5 minutes in a hot car park when I could have walked one flight of stairs to reception. Not great and took away from otherwise great stay. Beds comfortable. Shower in... More

Just spent a Saturday night in a 2 bedroom ocean-view apartment sharing with friends. The apartment was roomy and clean. The balcony was awesome! The room had everything we needed including washing machine, dryer, clothes rack, ensuite, etc. I would recommend this to couples, families and friends. It was great that we could book for 1 night only. We didn't... More

Dear Mantra Wollongong, Thank you for an expensive toss and turning night. This hotel has absolutely nothing going for it not even a cheaper rate (found on another booking site) made it worth while. A small queen (?) bed with tired furniture and something that kept waking us throughout the night. Our room was located close to the elevator so... More

We had a terrible stay at the mantra Wollongong. The beds were Lop sided due to the mattresses being old and collapsing. The curtains were torn and missing. The fly screen was torn. There was a screw used as a quick repair in washing machine drum which worked it's way half out and ripped my clothes. The walls were dirty... More

Wollongong is central to both my girlfriend and I (each travelling around an hour) so we took the opportunity to catch up. We found Matra on Booking.com and was extremely impressed. Our intention was to stay in the room .... talk talk talk.... we took our own food and was impressed with the kitchen amenities. We had a lovely balcony... More
