I cannot warrant giving this hotel 5 stars as I am conflicted. Although our overall experience staying at the Mantra on Frome was good, it was not without it's faults. The room we were provided with on our first night was terrible, two door handles did not work and there was a terribly foul smell that completely dominated one of the two bedrooms in our apartment. When we rang to notify reception, they said that this problem was a common issue with their hot water cylinders (which was stored in the bedroom). I would think that if this isssue was reoccurring, then they would have it seen too before guests arrive. Although a person was sent promptly to remedy the situation, the smell remained and we eventually requested another room.
This second room was much more pleasant, and was precisely what one would expect from a hotel of this standard, it was great quality. The amenities were brilliant and we found no faults with our stay in this room. If we weren't put in this most terrible room for the first night, I would have no issue recommending this hotel to family, friends and generally anyone who asked. However I cannot be sure that people would have an enjoyable experience, as there is obviously such a range of rooms (really bad - to throughly nice)
I guess all I can say is, if you get a good room then you will be getting your moneys worth at a quality hotel that is well presented and furnished, however if you are unlucky enough as we were on our first night and get a bad room, then this hotel is not one you want to be at.
