We stayed for 3 nights, and although the staff were all very nice, we found that the Mansion Hotel is way OVER PRICED, and was not like they had projected on there web site. The staff had problems understanding English, and it was just easier for us not to get what we wanted as it was just "too hard" to keep trying to explain.
On our first night it started to rain and just outside our room they started to paint the footpath, I asked them why they were doing this, and again the English barrier was an issue, so we just went to bed. In the morning it was flooded and all the paint was floating and the pathway was very slippery and dangerous. We were stuck in our room! Also water was coming up from under the ground which smelt terrible. We had to walk through all this and had paint on our feet and the soles of our thongs. We then asked to be changed to a different room, and they showed us several rooms, all different quality and none the same, but not really very nice, they are all run down and decor is very tied and old looking. Although I understand that they want to keep it a tradition looking Hotel, it is VERY over priced, and not appealing. We ended up staying in our room which was the "Cempaka" room, as all of the others that they showed us were just terrible. They had to clean up all of the wet paint and the water problem, which took 1 1/2 days.
We did enjoy the pool areas and it was nice to walk around and take photo's of the garden's ect and did have a relaxing feel to it.
The "Spa" was very expensive and was very average compared to other Spa's around Bali and what they offer you, The Mansion Spa needs to have a review on quality of products, or should I say "lack of products" that they offer. But the girls are very nice, but it just doesnt cut it when you get your bill.
The restaurant was good and we enjoyed our meals, but hard to explain to staff what we wanted from the menu. Again quite expensive.
There is no WIFI in your room and if you want to use the internet you have to sit in the lobby, using your own smart phone ect.
We had 2 x spa's (jaccuzzi's) just outside of our room, which to our surprise they charge $25US for one hour, the rooms are so over priced that I thought it would include sitting in a spa.
We probably wouldn't come back to this hotel unfortunately, there are better hotels in Ubud than this for a better price too.
