“Brisbane International”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed for 2 nights while we attended the finals of the tennis. It was great to be at the same hotel as the players and officials - it all added to the experience. The hotel staff were particularly helpful, and we had a great room, very spacious and well apointed. I've already booked to return with a friend in March for a girls night out. Love being able to walk to all the great South Bank attractions and into the city. Top Spot.

Room Tip: Location great large rooms great amentities

Dear Mrs Sharpe,

Thank you, what wonderful feedback for our team!

We were excited to have the players and officials staying with us again this year and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back again next year. It's a little surreal to see the players walk past you in our hotel foyer or at breakfast and then watch them on the court!

Mantra South Bank certainly is a top spot and is the place to stay in Brisbane and I'm very happy that we'll be welcoming you back in March - your Sparkling wine and goodies will be waiting!

See you soon!

Kind regards

Great apartment style living on the South Bank of Brisbane - with all the great things the location brings. Friendly staff. Valet parking can be a bit hard to pull in to at the front of the building though. It was clean and well presented in a modern style, although housekeeping came quite late in the day (annoying for a week's stay). Pool and gym on site. Only issue in apartment style was the kitchen ... we set the alarm off three times from STEAM from boiling water.

Room Tip: Ask for city views

Dear PandSMadison,

Thank you for your feedback regarding Mantra South Bank and for taking the time to post on Trip Advisor. I'm not sure what happened with the steam setting off the alarm however we're looking into it now and will fix it.

My team and I just love it when our guests have something something fabulous to say not only about us and our friendly, warm service but also about our location. People are slowly discovering that South Bank is a great place to stay overnight because its surrounded by so many things to do and see and it's away from the city noise and traffic.

Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights during the Brisbane International Tennis. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms comfortable and clean.We managed a deal that included parking.($35 per night). Without this the weekend would have been expensive.
We had a city view room which was good. Across the road is South Bank Parklands with a good walk along the river and lots of restaurants to choose from. The markets are there on Sunday as well.

One of the better hotels that I stayed at for work. Had a one bedroom apartment which had a separate sitting room. Hotel is well kept, very clean, quiet and extremely well located to restaurants and the Soutbank arts precinct. It was also very good value based on the daily rate we paid - howevever, the goodwill was somewhat undone by the $27 internet access fee plus the 2% credit card surcharge (regardless of what credit card was used). It would be five star rating without these surcharges. I know that this is pretty typical Queensland - but it's one of the reasons that Australians have stopped travelling to Qld - its too expensive and not service oriented. Make sure you factor these costs into any planned stay. I also had issues with there being no hot water in the shower in the morning - lucky it was 36o outside and a cold shower wasn't the worst way to start that particular day.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room overlooking the railyards.

Great location, good facilities (lap pool could probably do with a clean but otherwise fabulous gym etc), nice big room, friendly staff that were flexible to early checkin, great car valet service, a very positive experience on the whole.

Room Tip: Request a city facing view so that you're not overlooking other buildings in South Bank

Fantastic rooms with quite possibly the most comfy bed I've ever slept in my life. Breakfast buffet was quite impressive and high quality, but for the price point it is what you would expect.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and were very happy with our room. The hotel is well appointed and very conveniently located directly across from South Bank. Staff were friendly with the only minor problem was when the concierge brought the wrong car from the car park, poor bloke. The standard room was huge with a balcony and was very modern and clean. The only complaint was that the train line ran directly behind the hotel and was quite noisy. We would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel away from the train line.
