Supposedly a two bedroom deluxe with balcony it is actually a dark airless loft room with no windows or air conditioning in the ground floor and a tiny spiral staircase to the upper... More

I stayed at Rydges Bell City late last year for work for a few days. I had already stayed at the hotel earlier in the year and was impressed with the facilities and décor so re-booked. I understand this is now a Mantra hotel. My thoughts on the facilities and rooms will be consistent with what is on offer now... More

We stayed here one night for business trip last weekend (17/01) and checked out 18/01 on room 535E. Overall, it was good experience, it looked clean but not until you notice things from close. Dusts were on sofa too. However, the shower experience is average. I remember, I had to adjust the shower a few times so it wouldn't spray... More

On entering the room (room 522e) we were impressed, but unfortunately as we looked around we were less impressed. The bathroom towel rail was off the wall and sitting on the vanity. The handle on the vanity cabinet was broken off and on the floor. A picture from the wall in the sitting area was off the wall and leaning... More

In fairness this hotel would rate a 'Good' if there was such a rating, but it doesn't quite rate as a 'Very Good". Check in was somewhat slower than usual due to their odd process of photocopying ID, despite having booked on line. The room itself was modern, tastefully decorated and well equipped. What let this place down was the... More

A very nice and comfortable choice. Efficient check in and a nice stylish room in what is a very big, impersonal hotel. My room had a stylish bed, blackout curtains, couch, kitchenette (with an extensive mini bar), dining table, desk area and a nice bathroom. I couldn't fault the place.
