The sub-penthouse was advertised as a penthouse, the air conditioning unit was extremely loud, and in two days no cleaners visited the apartment. Nice hotel, but not a good value for money. The staff were polite.

Great pools - poor room

Room was clean but tired and missing any kind of desk or table. No place to unpack suitcase and no mini bar. Not a 4 star hotel.

good location

Pros: nice surrounds close to everything tram stop at the door
Cons: check web sites for discrepancies hotel room was below expected standards cleaning was not up to standard
booking through a booking agent description of hotel bedding not as described booking was made for 2 twin bed my understanding of this term being in the hotel industry is 2 queen or double beds and on arrival were given a room with twin single beds needed to sleep 3 people so had to upgrade to a two bed room unit which was nicer but at a higher cost

Easy access, friendly staff, good service

Pros: Location was convenient for the aim of our visit
Cons: Happy with everything we experienced, so no need for improvement, particularly at the reasonable rate
Location: Close to some very good eating spots. Easy walk to the beach. Easy access to Brisbane without having to trek through the Gold Coast
An all round easy and pleasurable stay. Staff were friendly and efficient, under car parking with easy access. Quick and efficient check in and out. Breakfast included was appreciated. Our stay was pleasurable and we would recommend Mantra Sun City.

Ok for an overnight or transit stay

Pros: Staff very friendly and polite
Cons: Remove "emergency vehicles only" signs replace with " guest check in " Porter to greet guests & take bags. deliver breakfast boxes to rooms
Great staff, very clean room. Terrible view - kept the curtains closed. Good size room fridge. Shower good. Bed comfy. Just lacking on ambience for us. I would take kids there as the rate is reasonable and a great swimming pool. Sorry it's just a little dated for my tastes BUT pretty good value.

Nice budget motel. Reasonably close to shops and b

The motel was nice. The staff were plesant and helpful. The motel facilities were also great. The room itself was a bit outdated. No house cleaning for a 7 night stay. No replacement bin bags or tea towels. We were allowed one change of towels in 7 nights. Otherwise we had to pay 5 dollars per towel. No extra toilet paper. Checking out. Our flight didn't depart until 1940. We requested a late checkout. Were told no someone is checking in. Unless we pay 20 dollars per hour we could. No wifi unless you're a mantra member. Which is fine but we need insentives to join. Overall we felt like we paid for the room and were forgotten about until check out. House keeping once in that time. A linen change and fresh towels without having to ask lobby staff would have made it a bit more pleasant.

Room spacious, but is in need of an upgrade. Wasn't impressed with implements available in kitchen. Front desk staff did not ask if we were using slides, had to go back down and request them.
