Overall a good experience. With the only negative being delayed access. Keeping the service to the customer a priority the offer of a tea or coffee and a place to sit would have been a good way to offset the inconvenience.

Should have read the reviews before booking at the worst mantra chain ever! The standard is well below average, extremely shocking for mantra! Our room was filty. Extremely noisy. Take into account all the negative reviews and book elsewhere! A thorough clean is essential and sort out the noise at night!!!!!!!!!

The concept of Mantra Wollongong is all there: it's like home unit living away from home. However, the way the units are presented needs to be revisited by management and then communicated through to the staff. With our room (2 br unit), we spotted the following hygiene issues: 1. Curtains were torn and tattered, mouldy 2. There was mould in... More

Great place. We loved staying at Mantra Wollongong. It was close to everything. The apartment was clean and spacious and the balcony was big too, with a table and two chairs to enjoy a morning coffee. Will definitely come again.

We really needed a luxury escape and Mantra was the perfect place for us. The staff are very cheerful and helpful. The location was excellent for us as it was quite close to the centre of town but not too close to be noisy.

I didn't believe the negative reviews until i entered my room to find food scraps on the table, chair and floor. Poorly mantained, low cost materials. Marked walls, chipped cheap furnishings etc. Cant believe the Mantra chain would accept this low standard. Friendly reception, large rooms and good location.
