Lovely hotel. Close to everything.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: We found someone's washing in the machine that the cleaners obviously hadn't checked. Need to check things before other people move in.
Location: Everything nearby and great views to everywhere.
Beautiful views from our room on 32nd floor. Walking distance to everything. Nice restaurant. Fabulous facilities.

Nice hotel with a great view of the beach

Pros: The location and amenities it provided.
Cons: Firmer pillows would be great.
Location: Close to the beach and restaurants with a tram stop directly behind the hotel to get you to other areas of the Gold Coast easily.
Mantra Sun City was a lovely place to stay, with lovely staff, we have made note of our room for next time. Close to all amenities with a great view of the ocean, we were very happy.

Excellent location

Great family accomodation. Excellent pool area with public bbq facilities. Highly recommend for families with children aged from 5 years ir older - they can walk to Cavill without complaining about the distance.

Stop over for work

This hotel offered a great nights accommodation at a reasonable rate. It was great for just a short stopover for work purposes.

Customer Service and Facilities

Pros: The pool was amazing.
Cons: The room felt like a backpacker hostel. For the price, it was a major let down.
Lifts were out, had to walk 7 flights of stairs constantly. Staff were not at all helpful and would not let us end our stay early. Room was dirty with peeling blue paint on the doors. We live ten minutes from the hotel but wanted to have a nice relaxing weekend away. It was such a shame that we would have preferred to be at home. The lift not working I understand, things happen, however the staffs attitude towards this was very disappointing and blamed us for complaining too late in the day rather than trying to accomodate us for dealing with facilities not working. Very disappointing.
