“Good location, but ...”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The location is good, and Mantra on Queens it may be; the entrance however isn't and this does need emphasising for us strangers arriving in a car and using the old fashioned map. Good check-in made us very positive. 2 bed apartment well .. The 2 singles bedroom was the biggest room! The double was okay, but I asked if I could have a second bedside cabinet (these I find so useful), I was advised that the room wasn't big enough for two. Found someone's dirty T shirt under an arm chair in the sitting room so step up to the mark cleaning. The kitchen is good for self catering, but Mantra seem to have a policy warning you about the large fine incurred if you set of the fire alarm whilst cooking (same in the hotel at Surfers), and this is off putting. Anyway we cooked and didn't!

Other than the tricky entrance which could take you long time to find and the very weird tiny car park, everything else was great. Very nice location , only 2.8 km walk to south bank where you walk shopping and sightseeing. It could sound a bit far for some but the quietness of the location is the secret. Overall all , value for money and would go again

This was my second visit to the Mantra. Last time I had a balcony which was nicer, but the view was excellent anyway. Lovely to have a bath in the room as well as pool and spa on level 5.
Entrance is hard to find. Supermarket across the road is handy. A little bit of a walk from Central Station. Spacious room, would like to see a table for 2 included, as nowhere to eat.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view.

Dear Leisa W,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay at Mantra on Queen. I'm glad to read that as return guests you once again enjoyed your stay at the hotel. I would definately recommend booking one of our 1 Bedroom Apartments, the next time you are in Brisbane - these rooms all have balconies and feature full kitchen facilites, as well as a dining table.

Hope to see you again soon.

Close to Central Station, Close to Riverwalk and Cafes, Close to Fortitude Valley. There is a shopping mall directly across the road, so self-catering is a breeze. Pool & Spa are basic, but also has a Sauna! Reception Staff very helpful. King Bed and Room Size great value for money!

Today's Brisbane is a vibrant city for culture vultures, bookworms, shoppers, diners... The Mantra on Queen is within easy walking distance of the Queen Street Mall, River Cat ferries and lively Fortitude Valley. The airy apartments have vistas of the surroundings and for self caterers there's a shopping complex across the street.
The icing on the cake are the front office staff!! Helpful, with a big smile, and genuinely willing to make your stay enjoyable.
As a retired travel agent I understand that none of us are totally satisfied with the pillows or the shower etc; I'll be going back.

Room Tip: 2402 had only a tiny bathroom which lacked adequate ventilation, i.e. trying to dry yourself in a st...

Where to start - Entrance was a bit tricky. Don't take a car unless you want to check your driving skills.Room looked very nice that is where it ended. People having party in hall, very noisey. The bed hard and lumpy with dead pillows. We will not be returning. I also found a long black hair on the spare pillow-yuk!!!

Please know that, generally, if you let our staff know of any issues whilst at the hotel (in regards to noise levels from neighbours) then we are straight onto rectifying it for you. I do hope that you will try us again, the next time you are in Brisbane, so we are able to display improvements to your overall experience.
