I was only here for one night but I had a lovely time. The lady at the reception was friendly and professional and she let me check in a few hours before the scheduled check in time. My room was neat and tidy with useful amenities, and was walking distance to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre which is the reason I was in Brisbane. Room service was quite prompt also. In addition I got to check out a little later than the scheduled check out time. All in all I had a positive experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
My daughter and I spent a weekend in the city to celebrate her 16th birthday. Upon arrival at the Mantra the staff greeted us warmly and informed us that we had discounted valet parking and breakfast included in our weekend stay. This was an added bonus as we had not realized this was included. Our room overlooked the city and we could open the windows which was lovely to have fresh air in a hotel room. The room itself was huge and the kingsize bed was super comfortable. We had booked to watch a show at Qpac which was a 5 minute walk down the road. We also had dinner at Southbank and were spoilt for choice as there were so many fantastic restaurants. Breakfast the next morning was delicous. The machine had run out of hot chocolate so the head waitress organised a beautiful fresh hot chocolate for my daughter made manually in the bar area. I was also given a cappucino and there was no extra charge. The portions in the buffet were not huge and that meant they were continually topped up and were hot and fresh. I enjoyed my stay so much I am planning on taking my husband there for a weekend away.
We had a nice stay in a 1 bedroom apartment at Sudima Suites. Parking was $10 for the night. The room was clean. The hotel was about a 12 minute walk to South Bank.
One downside was, you could hear a helicopter landing at the nearby hospital a few times throughout the night. Also, it would have been nice to have a fold out couch in the living room.
Would definitely consider staying here again.
There was an issue with our booking details which the staff went out of their way to rectify. Our room was clean and comfortable and met our needs well. Ideal for an overnight stay after a game at the Gabba.
