It is a nice hotel for living in Canberra, especially long stay. They are kind and enthusiasm. And it is near the Canberra Centre. So it is very convenient for shopping and business. Meanwhile the room is bright and clean.

This hotel is centrally located.We have stayed at Mantra Canberra a number of times. This time for 7 days. The rates were competitive for a very well presented spacious apartment with balcony, clothes washer and drier and a very well equipped kitchen. Undercover parking was good, a few spaces, while tight for a SUV, were still adequate. Parking costs for... More

Staff friendly, room clean,spacious and comfortable. We had room service which was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Breakfast very satisfying , good choice of food and plenty of fresh fruit. Parking charge not excessive as is often the case. Highly recommended.

Staff excellent, helpful and informative (especially reception). Beautiful rooms, great aircon, immaculately cleaned. Car hire within one minute. 5 mins walk to cafes and bars, 10 mins walk to shopping centre. Parking on site. Gym and pool. Will definitely be staying here in the future. No need for anywhere else. Has everything.

We drove down to Canberra for a few days R&R. The Mantra was a pleasant experience, we were there just overnight getting there at 630 pm and the checkout was 10am... So the $12.00 car parking fee was unnecessary. The room was quite pleasant but the promise of a deep bath was very dissapointing as it was a child size... More

After booking into a holiday park only to find the room was unsuitable my husband booked us into the Mantra. When we arrived we were greet by friendly staff and offered free parking. We always stay at the Mantra chain and will continue after trying somewhere else only to find it did not live up to the Mantra standard.

We were a family of six and we had a great time. Rooms were very clean and staff we're all fantastic! Location of the hotel is fantastic all within easy walking distance to the restaurants. We just found the street noise was a little noisy. Otherwise it was great choice!
