“great value and excellent location”
Reviewed March 25, 2010

we stayed here for 4 nights in march. the appartments are great inside, a good size and in an excellent location. about a 2 min walk to salamanca. we had no issues when we stayed here and had a nice view as we were on the top floor. i would definalty reccomend this place as it was cheaper than many of the hotels in hobart and was really good.

the only thing is the king size bed is actually 2 singles that zip together so you can feel the join and makes it a little annoying.

I endorse other reviewers' comments about the quality of the rooms and other facilities. However, the attitude of the staff was disappointing. We booked on line using another booking site shortly after arriving in Hobart mid Sunday afternoon. We got confirmation immediately and turned up at the hotel about 20 minutes later to be told by the reception person that "didn't we know that they did not accept bookings after 12 noon Sundays" and that "this was clearly stated on the website". Well, the website took my money without any problem and I did not see anything about not booking on Sunday afternoons. I almost turned around and walked out but as I had become accustomed to the unfortunate but far too frequent unprofessionalism of the Tasmanian hospitality industry I bit my tongue and grabbed my room key. A similar attitude greeted my partner the next morning from another staff member when he politely inquired if the rate included breakfast. It was as if he had asked for the keys to the safe....a very defensive and somewhat rude response from the employee. Still, despite the amateurism of the staff, the accom was large, clean, and quiet and close to everything.

After completing the Overland trek, my husband and I used the Mantra as a base in Hobart to undertake the South Coast walk. We were very impressed at the quality and facilities in the apartments, particularly the new washer dryer and the sheer size of the rooms! The location of the apartments was fantastic as were we able to walk to supermarkets and stores in the CBD to collect our supplies as well as easily access restaurants in the Salamanca market and dock areas.

The staff were v.friendly and helpful, arranging to hold a bag for us whilst we were trekking through to booking the airport shuttle bus. A real gem that we'd happily stay at again when back in Hobart.

We booked through WOTIF and got a great rate for 3 nights, great location opposite St Davids Park and a short stroll from wharf/pier area and Salamanca.

Nice central location. Friendly reception. Make sure you booking car park with accommodation as you will find it difficult to find a car park close by. We parked on the street close enough to see if it from the appartment to keep an eye on it, but had to keep parking meter feed between 8.30am - 6pm Monday-Friday. We had problems with air conditioner not reaching the bedroom and the washing having no power to it. The tv reception was poor, and not all channels availble.

The Hotel was in a convenient location near everything Hobart has to offer (which was not very much!!)

The decor was fresh and modern and in decent condition. The linen was comfy (I can not stand starchy linen). The pillows were a dream to sleep on. We didn't have any kind of view but my wife and I do not travel to sit in a hotel room and look out the window. The building was located sufficiently close to local attractions which was perfect for our needs.

Very clean, comfortable, modern accommodation. We stayed there twice, while touring Tasmania. Both times, had a lovely huge apartment. Beds comfortable, and would stay there again. Easy walking to alot of things, and St Davids park across the road, beautiful.
If you stay there don't forget to book a car park spot, before you go, costs extra but worth it. No parking close by. Thank you to Roasemary and Megan, for being so helpful. Just one little thing, the windows don't open, but very efficient A/C.
