We booked a 1 Bedroom Spa Suite - Hinterland Views for the weekend of 10-12 Dec 2010. It's worth mentioning that we've stayed here at least 4 times since it originally opened.
We found the room of high standard, King bed comfortable & corner spa wonderful to relax in. Our room had some waterviews and the most gorgeous sunsets. The really nice thing about these rooms is that there is a sliding door between the bedroom and lounge area. It also has a kitchen bench in the hallway with fridge and microwave.
It was so quiet in our room that we felt we had the whole hotel to ourselves. The staff were very helpful and appeared happy each time we walked by.
The hotel is large and depending on what type of room you book, can be a fair walk from the elevator to your room. The hotel shares the carpark with the local club, with a separate lift, so it's not secure. You need to be prepared to walk a little distance to the elevator if it's a busy night. However, we've stayed a few times and never had a problem getting a park.
Room service is not available & you pay extra if you want daily servicing (again, pretty standard for mantra), but there's a cafe across the road, IGA on the next block with lots of shops, including take-aways & a restaurant strip about 5 mins drive away.
Payment was required in full & in advance (14 days) which we've found pretty typical for Mantra.
We keep going back so that in it's self should be a positive review.
