“Fantastic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

The Mantra is in a fantastic location, walking distance to salamanca, wharf, CBD, battery point, etc. The rooms are huge but in need of TLC. Downlights were hanging from ceiling and bathroom cupboards didnt close. Apart from that its very comfy and the bed was great. Parking is available for $10 per day but you must book well in advance as there is limited space available.

The location of the hotel is always such a positive talking point for so many of our guests. You are absolutely right and parking is limited so does need to be pre booked particularly over the peak periods.

I look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Mantra One Sandy Bay in the near future.

Room was surprisingly spacious, well furnished - a perfectly reasonable self contained apartment. Shower was terrific although a little small. Kitchen had all fundamental appliances. There's nothing overtly special about these rooms however they are not lacking either. It is good value and the location is great - walking distance from just about everything in town. Basic comfort but not glamorous. Bed in particular was not great!
Staff were very lovely and willing to help printing tickets etc.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

While the shower was hot, the beds were comfy and the loungeroom spacious and restful, sitting on a toilet that tilts was a little disconcerting. It was obviously not properly secured and while it was in no danger of falling over, I didn't like it. I also didn't like it that the apartment would not be serviced in the four days I was there with my daughter. Apparently, that's extra cost. So I went out and bought extra coffee, milk, toilet paper, etc. After buying eggs to scramble for breakfast, it dawned on me (bright that I am) that there were no hotplates to cook on. Duh. That's not Mantra's fault, but I wish I'd know when booking that there was no stove. There was a microwave/oven/thingey, but I couldn't work out how to use it.

Room Tip: If you're not fussed about cooking, it's fine. But check the toilet for stability. Just in...

It was great to read that the shower was hot and you found the bed comfortable which are things I find really important when staying in a hotel. Thank you also for bringing the tilting toilet to my attention, I will have one of the maintenance team go in and try and sort the problem.
When our guests stay with us for seven or more nights, we do a mid stay clean but always happy to provide extra tea, coffee, toilet paper etc if required at no extra charge. I will also ask housekeepping to check that all of the rooms have an electric frypan so guests can do exactly as you mentioned and cook their eggs for breakfast.
I look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Mantra One Sandy Bay in the near future.

Really liked the hotel and we will return, staff are so lovely and helpful. Well situated, walking distance to salamanca, whalf, city centre and battery point. Lovely rooms but free wifi should be in place to keep up with demand and other hotels in the area.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, the location is brilliant, the rooms have ample space and we were very comfortable. I was a little disappointed with the reception area as it was so small, however the staff were extremely helpful and that after all is what matters the most.

Had a good stay here for the last 4 days.
We pre booked the car spot and a portacot for our baby.
The hotel is in a great location, especially close to the fantastic markets.
We were on level 5 and our room had great views from the lounge room.
We would stay here again!
