Very expensive 2 bedroom apartment. Dining furniture stained and dirty. Did not want to sit on them. Disgusting. Cups in cupboard had not been washed, filthy. Will not stay at Mantra again. The only good thing was the linen was clean. Doona in between sheets stained and old.

Spacious well appointed rooms - not well located however - far distance from the beach and tired interior and furnishings. Location was very poor and felt confronted with persons using illicit substance use very near to hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights for work, the rooms are very nice and clean. Bathrooms very clean. The location is very good and nice sushi place just nearby. There is laundry and dryer in the room which is a bonus for me. Gym accessible 24/7 The only thing that upset us was that there is no free wifi. After staying... More

We paid $350 per night, which seemed over the top at the time. I have stayed in hotels for $150 that were far cleaner and far better looked after. The rooms look like the have been hosting schoolies parties for the last few years and never cleaned! The furniture is destroyed and should be thrown out, carpet is disgusting and... More

Extremely happy with our stay. We stayed because a friend was having a birthday party in Wollongong. Great value for money and the buffet breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be coming to stay again.

We stayed here for an athletic competition so our time spent in the hotel was minimal. We had a two bedroom suite which was spacious but totally no frills. The hotel wasn't dirty, but it wasn't clean either. It's also not in the most convenient location. You are walking distance to the restaurants and shops but there are some questionable... More

She checked our room which was meant to be ready as it was well past the check in time and found that it was not ready at all. She ended up putting... More
