“Very Pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is ideally situated at Southbank Brisbane, close to the city but far enough away. Relaxed bar & restaurant with friendly staff. Also close to plenty of other cafes and a variety of other dining options. Good walking and cycling along the river.

Stayed July 2013, traveled on business

No idea how much this costs as it was booked through a sports tour operator. It was ideally located close to the South Bank, friendly staff throughout, decent bar area but not great for groups of people, good quality breakfast, good size rooms and bathrooms. I would stay there again.

We chose Mantra due to its location....near QPAC....lovely South Bank.....restaurants etc, but the price was ridiculous at $265.00 (and this was a special deal!). If you wish to stay in this area, then the choice is very limited....Rydges is the only other hotel close by so they have no competition.
It was a special occasion for us so we just paid because it is such a lovely area and everything is in walking distance. They even charge extra for parking.....$35.00....valet....so you feel obliged to tip. The room was fresh and clean......new furnishings and we had a lovely view over the city;including the cute little coffee nook across the road (which is where we had breakfast at a much cheaper rate). I must say that the bed was extremely comfortable and absolutely huge. We were only in the room long enough to sleep so next time we will seek cheaper options or save up!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a city view.

I first booked this hotel for my mother and by far surpassed her expectations. She was treated to a great up grade at no extra cost because they had the availability and said she'd was treated like gold by their staff. Due to her recommendation our family went to stay in February and again had the same experience. The staff at mantra need a pat on the back, great service and great city hotel so close to south banks beset features. Our family will definitely be back!

Hotel is in a great area of Brisbane.
When we arrived we were a bit baffled from driving there in busy traffic,
but the guy on reception took great care of getting our car parked and taking bags, great welcome!
Nice big clean rooms, lovely comfortable beds, best sleep we had had in a long time!
Breakfast was nice, fruit bread was very yummy!
the only thing I could recommend to hotel is to have the spa a bit hotter
at colder times during the year, wasn't quite warm enough for us to jump in the cold :)
Wish we could have stayed more than one night!
We will be back in the future.

Great friendly staff, clean good sized rooms. Location is the key, step out onto beautiful South Bank and take a free ferry ride down the Brisbane River. Valet parking (for a fee), buffet style breakfast was included. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city/river.

I spent 4 nights at the mantra and had a great time, The staff were very helpful and friendly, as well as the hotel the city of Brisbane made up for trip in Oz.The location of the bars, cafe' etc was great. This made it easy to visit the city centre and to walk to suncorp for the lions game. I will hope to stay there again one day and I would like to give everyone a big thank you for a great lions tour.

Room Tip: please choose any room during your stay
