“Great rooms and excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Visited Mooloolaba recently on a business trip and had 1 night at the Mantra. Place was spotlessly clean and rooms were already ready for check in at 1pm.

Located next to Coles supermarket and also adjacent to another dining and shopping precinct.

For the rates that you pay, you can't get any better value!

Dear Thambi117,

Thank you for your review! Its a shame that you only had such a short visit but glad that you enjoyed us for a brief period of time, and that we were able to check you in a little bit earlier than the normal 2pm. We try our best too if we can, but not always possible.

Hope you are able to come and visit our property for a longer period of time next time!

Kind Regards

Jaime Dieckmann

I stayed in room 1110 (11th floor) in a one bedroom apartment over Easter/ANZAC Day in April 2014. Front desk was 24 hours and the staff were very helpful. Bedroom had large, comfy bed with flat screen TV - poor lighting and small opaque window - but didn't bother me. Bathroom had circular spa bath with window into lounge - a little odd. Shower over bath. Kitchen had microwave and half fridge with mini freezer that was not really useable. Lots of utensils provided. Lounge had flat screen TV and balcony with outdoor dining set overlooking ocean. Beautiful views. Room was a little tired (carpet needed steam cleaning) but other facilities/location means I would go back. Outdoor pool had deckchairs and 2 permanent umbrellas for shade. Pool water temperature freezing (even though supposed to be heated). Outdoor spa with lovely warm water attached to pool. Location of hotel at northern end of strip. A little windy some days beside the pool because of the corner location. But nice to be on the strip but not in the middle of things. Overall, room a little tired but had everything needed. I would go back.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have good views. Floor 11 looked like top floor with one bedroom apartments. Room 1110...

Dear Julieeballatyne,

Thank you for your loevly through review of our property! We do appreciate all reviews, as it does give us suggestions as to how to improve our services to exceed our guests expectations in the future.
The ocean view apartments like the one you were staying in do have some spectacular views so I'm glad that you were able to appreciate those along with a range of facilities.
I have mentioned the temperature of the outdoor pool to our maintenance team so that they can follow up on that, it is heated but not to the same temperature as the indoor heated pool and factors such as the wind and outside temperature can effect it sometimes.

I'm please to hear that our staff were helpful for you during your stay, as we do pride ourselves on our level of customer service.

Hope that we see you again sometime in the future!

Kind Regards

We stayed for one night at Mantra Mooloolaba - we wanted to stay for two nights but the hotel was fully booked for the Saturday night (apparently this is quite common) so we had to go somewhere else.

Good sized rooms with the bedroom located in an alcove off the lounge area. Decent size bathroom.

Great views of the beach.

There's no minibar - but there's a convenience store very close to the hotel - so if you wanted snacks, it's best to stock up before hand.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for an ocean view.

Dear Susan S,

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that we couldn't accomodate you for two nights, hopefully we can next time when you return to our property. We do tend to be fully booked most weekends so it does pay to book in advance if you can.

I'm glad that you you enjoyed our facilties even if it was a shorter stay.

We look forward to having you back for a longer visit next time,

Kind Regards

We didn't stay with with this hotel however our apartment was in their hotel. Great friendly staff. We had fantastic views from the 16floor, the hotel itself is very close to everything, cafes,bars,transport and of course the beach. The resort style swimming pool is relaxing as too the indoor heated pool. They have a games room as well. The main hotel walks out to bars,shops,beauty salons and cafes. You also have a coles literally next door and a liquor store. The hotel has sea views if it be from your hotel room or ground level and situated right on the esplanade. We would stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely higher floors.

Last week a friend and I were lucky enough to stay 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt at home. The customer service we both experienced while staying there was phenomenal and by far one of the best services we had both ever received. No matter what query we had, all staff members were enthusiastic to assist us at all times, they all significantly contributed to the wonderful our wonderful stay.
The customer service wasn’t all this hotel had to offer, the facilities were amazing and easy to access at all times. We stayed in an ocean view room, which was spotless and spacious and the view was to die for even though we were only on level 4.
The Hotel is located in the heart of Mooloolaba, which allows you to be centred around all that the beautiful Sunshine Coast town has to offer.
To all those at Mooloolaba Beach Mantra, thank you for making our stay so wonderful and memorable. We will definitely be returning before the end of the year.
Karina.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are wonderful

Stayed two nights in a one bedroomed beach front apartment. Good size with a full kitchen so able to self cater if needed. Supermarket very close (in next block).
Bathroom a little dated but overall facilities very clean and comfortable.
Located within a small shopping mall and a very short stroll onto the Esplanade for a great range of cafes and local shops.
Gym and swimming pool for the energetic minded !
Would be an ideal location for families, beach access straight across the road and excellent walkways along the ocean front
Friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. Would certainly stay again

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms have great views but can be noisy from passing traffic

Booked this last minute and it didn't disappoint. The location is great, right on The Esplanade, lots of restaurants and shops close at hand. We had a one bedroom sea view apartment high on the 11th floor. It had great sea and pool views and was nice and quiet. The apartment was beautifully clean and tidy which is always welcome. It had a kitchenette with a microwave and a portable two ring burner, fairly basic kit, but with so many eating places around it was enough for our needs. The bathroom had a very deep circular spa bath/shower which wouldn't be the easiest thing if you weren't reasonably agile as the sides were quite high to step over. It did however have a hand grip to assist you. The bedroom is at the back of this type of unit and doesn't have a window so is quite dark during the day, not one for claustrophobes. Cosy at night though with the bedsides lit. Nice, spacious living/dining area and a balcony to admire the beautiful ocean view. There is a nice big pool with plenty of sun beds, two spas and shaded areas. The gardens are lovely and very well maintained. Overall I thought that it was great value for money and would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Worth going for the ocean view I think and being on a higher floor keeps you away from traffic noise...
