We ended up staying at Mantra Parramatta because Sydney itself was far too expensive over the New Years period, however the experience they provided was second to none. From the moment I arrived at the reception desk, I was already enjoying my stay.. Maybe it is just the training, but I felt like the staff actually cared and didn't give off the vibe of wanting to be somewhere else like so many reception staff do elsewhere.
The location within Parramatta itself is great, the Westfield shopping centre is across the road and so to is the train station if you are wanting to travel into Sydney or go to Stadium Australia, as we did.
While the rooms were nothing particularly special, they were modern, provided a comfortable bed to sleep on, were spacious enough and had a nice clean bathroom. The Mantra certainly ticks all the boxes in what I look for in a hotel.
P.S. If you are planning on using parking, make sure you can navigate your car through tight spaces, there isn't a lot of room to move in the car park!
