Mantra on Hay
Ranked #27 of 65 Hotels in Perth
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

This place is a pit avoid at all cost, car park smells of sewage. The halls smell of a mix between lamb souvlaki and vinegar. The main office smell like wet dog. They stuffed up my booking then tried to charge a penalty. This place is barely fit for human habitation which best describes the service none the staff sit out the back probably trying to avoid the stench. Swimming pool had a life electrical cable in the water where the light once was !! And hadn't been cleaned since commissioning it also had a distinct odour, one we couldn't describe. So if you want a sensory overload, be ripped off and generally like staying in a boarding kennel this is the place for you a absolute hole well done Mantra!!

Just returned from a one night stay in a two bedroom apartment. The check in was fantastic and quick. The room was very spacious for four adults and one child who had a foldaway bed in the lounge area. The pool was lovely and refreshing after a day in the city shopping. The only negative would be to arrive early as the car park is very limited on spaces. Other than that we will be back as it was just the mini getaway we needed

A very warm welcome, the service was good, we got moved as room was not up to standard, the next rooms very large and great views, cleaned to a high standard we did not have breakfast in the hotel, as a lot of the rooms had facilities in to make your own, hotel was local for all areas to visit.

This place was most comfortable relaxing and clean
Yes I did gave to move to a couple of rooms due to refurbishment happening
1st 2 weeks on the lower floors that hadn't had the refurb. And last 2.5 weeks on the upper floors where by had already had thd refurb.
Inconvenient NOT at all even though this was happening in the building you to be honest wouldn't have known.
Team members atvthe front desk were great and very helpful.
My room was always replenished and cleaned by the cleaning teams daily.
The in house restaurant is nice that you can purchase or get room service from "add a chicken breast fillet meal" would be all I suggest.
And well the New refurbed rooms are really nice kitchens with micro and fan forced oven and lge fridge freezer great lounge comfortable, Tv, Cd player ipod connectivity, and wow an octopus 4 way phone charger for iphone. Samsung. Blackberry and ipod. Never seen before in any place I've stayed great thinking team.
Bathrooms nice and good laundry dryer.

I guess I could say what else could I ask for to make the 5 week stay more confortable? NOTHING!! very satisfied.

P.s. I'd stay even if not on business it was conveniently located.

I've stayed in the two bedroom apartments many times. Kitchens are well stocked, rooms are big and it's close to the WACA cricket ground and Queens Park. It's a good 10 min walk into the centre of the shopping CBD, but there is a free bus that run a city loop (not run by the hotel). A small supermarket is across the street along with bottle shops and pubs. Parking can fill up and leave you out on the street on busy nights. All in all it's a solid apartment hotel.

This hotel looks great in foyer but the standard of room was very disappointing. There was leaking roof, stains on carpet and tv is in lounge but not bedroom. High service charge on room service and food was cold when delivered. Didn't feel like safe place outside either

Room Tip: Would not recommend

I am currently staying at the Mantra on Hay and hate every moment of it. We are checking out in the next day to move to another hotel. Mantra on Hay is old, dirty paint and walls and even cockraches in my apartment kitchen. The staff (especially one individual) wokring over the last weekend is rude and insults her co-workers in front of guests. This was rented by my company for us and I will advise them never to put any families or employees in Mantra of Hay, possibly to stay away from this hotel brand completely.
I have travelled to developed and poor countries and must say for the rate we pay per night this is the lowest and worst standard I have ever seen for a develoepd country...shame on this hotel for expecting guests to put up with this.

Room Tip: dont book please....

Hi AlvCal

Thank you for feedback with regards to your current stay. We are currently going through a refurbishment which will enhance the overall properties appearance and the guest experience. We do our best to maintain pest control through programmed maintenance especially having full kitchen facilities to ensure this does not affect your stay. It is unfortunate that this occurred while you were here. May it also be noted that once you notified reception of this issue we gave you the option to move rooms to which you declined. Mantra on Hay with its spacious apartments is great for families and longstay guests as it has all the required facilities, full kitchen, seperate washing machine and dryer and within close proximity of 3 supermarkets.

Again I apologise for the inconveniences caused.
