I found the air quality to be unacceptable. It smelt like fungus, as well as strong air fresheners and deodorising chemicals. I complained and was shown two other rooms, both of which were stronger smelling than my original room (mostly with the strong chemicals). The carpet everywhere in this hotel was old and threadbare and clearly has had strong smelling... More

I was really disappointed with my stay at mantra. For less than $100 a night you dont expect much. But ive stayed at backpackers with better service and facilities. Upon check in we were greeted by a robot, i mean girl, who spoke in a monotone voice about the hotel with absolutely 0 personality or warmth. The room itself was... More

Good value hotel. Great location close to Northland shopping centre. Rooms are large with kitchenettes. Staff very helpful. Miss the breakfasts if bus groups are in , it's noisy and chaotic. Looking forward to returning.

Sadly overall service was below expectation compared to previous visits. The room was clean and tidy and overall represented good value, but we experienced many little things that should be part of standard service. Car parking, room service, dining, and room configuration missed the mark for us.

We need a comfortable bed and we found the bed to be good, although we had booked a queen, we got twin singles, that we then had to wait to be put together to make a king and redone. The room had everything that we needed in it and was close to the place that we were doing business with.... More

The hotel is clean, light and rooms are fairly simple and nice. However the service is not very professional. On checking in, the girl serving me was chewing gum. In the breakfast area, when we mentioned that there were no bowls, we were handed a stack of bowls from the dishwasher to put out ourselves. There was no attention-to-detail to... More

Arrived to find no towels and no remote control for the air conditioner / heater - we were given towels but no remote control so was cold the entire stay. Very limited menu for room service and need to pay extra for wifi. Had breakfast in the... More

I stayed two nights for a business trip. Room was laid out nice and clean. Bathroom was small but has everything you could need. I had to call down to reception and I got a very blunt and short answer when I asked for a room service card - they were so busy. Overall it wasn't as professional as the... More
