Nice hotel close to beach

Pros: Buffet breakfast. Proximity to restaurants and beach.
Cons: The lift to car park. Also system of cards to activate lift was slow and cumbersome.
Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best. While the facilities and rooms a on the way to becoming a little worn, the rooms were very comfortable with great views. The buffet breakfast and dinner was also great tasting and value for money.

Nice stay

The location was great given its proximity to a patrolled beach and with a tram stop quite close, travelling further into surfers was a breeze.

Walking distance to most attractions in surfers

The Mantra on view is looking a little tired! The rooms could do with a face lift. Overall I would stay here again as it had everything I needed

Old & tired hotel

Booked a basic twin room for a friend and myself for just one night. It’s was $169 including breakfast. This hotel is very old & very rundown with Mantra simply applying some cosmetic bandaid fixes to common areas. The foyer is pleasant and checkin was prompt & friendly. The carpark for this hotel is terrible, there’s rubbish everywhere, bins overflowing and the lift & lift lobby was horrible. Not a very good experience. An easy fix would be to simply clean the area and empty the bins. The room had a strong chemical smell and the carpets were damp. The carpets were also heavily stained. Furnishings where ok but all very tired and most surfaces damaged in some way. The bed was fairly comfy. By the next morning I couldn’t wait to get out of the room due to the smell, whatever the chemicals were trying to cover up wasn’t being covered up any longer, perhaps a previous guest had been sick or spilt something, it wasn’t pleasant at all. Breakfast was about average for a large budget property with many large tour groups so a lot of pushing & shoving so to speak. Upon check out I passed on my complaint about the smell & carpet stains in the room they said they’d address this. I have stayed at this hotel at various timeframes over the past 25 years and I don’t think I’d return based on this stay. There’s better options available. I didn’t complain any earlier in my stay as it was only one night.

Perfect location, little outdated.

The hotel is in a great location, easy walk to Cavill Ave, and the beach which we could see from our room. Room was a bit outdated, doors needed a paint job etc, and probably new carpets wouldn't hurt. Beds were comfortable. Parking was easy, $8 per day and safe undercover. Staff were fabulous and welcoming

Great location check in staff were most helpful.

Carpark to hotel is a nightmare. Especially the lift then have to walk up stairs to hotel lift. Not an easy task with luggage. Room was well equipped first night but housekeeping did not top up towels or coffee/tea amenities. Needs a good coat of paint.

hotel with amazing city and beach views

Overall the hotel was amazing, you could pay $8 extra to park which was handy. Claire at the front desk checked us in, she was also amazing and so helpful. The only thing wrong was the room smelt strongly of smoke when we arrived. It took until night time to air out the room.
