Liked how central it was to where I was going but big dissatisfaction due to the cleanliness of the rooms. There was what looked like blood on the curtains in the main room and snot of one of the pillows. For a hotel with a kitchen for dining only having room service from 5pm wasn’t great. The electrical items in the room were that dated. Also the lack of housekeeping. When your paying almost $1000 for 3 nights accommodation you expect a little more....

The rooms were of a nice size, but I was disappointed by the reception staff's dealing with parking. Instead of being able to access our car whenever we had to get the keys from reception. If we took the car out we couldn't be guaranteed a car park when we got back. We were going out the first night and worried we would have no where to park out car when we got back. We would have happily paid for a parking spot in advance but the Mantra staff did not care.

Quite an old building but clean and tidy. Young inexperienced staff who weren't very communicative or outgoing. My room was spacious but right next to the rail line so I was woken a number of times throughout the night by trains. Overall tidy and functional but fairly low on the enjoyment scale.

We weren't allowed to park the car at the venue. Instead we were told to go to the Pullman who were extremely unhelpful. As a result we had to park our car in the street. Finding a park was another issue and made us half an hour late for our appointment. To top that off we had to move the car at 11pm. Very unsatisfactory. The kitchen benches were not cleaned properly and had a sticky substance on them. Bed and bathrooms were good. Not sure why we had a cot though.

Hi Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, although I am sorry to read that you were disappointed with your recent stay. We do endeavor to ensure that our very limited availability of our onsite car parking is advertised across all third party websites. As the surrounding area mostly caters to private residents, our team will direct you to a nearby alternative. I am sorry that this experience was disappointing. As we always aim to provide a high standard of cleanliness, I am sorry that you did not find this to be the case. As we are unable to trace your booking, it would be great if you could contact us directly so that we can properly investigate. Kind Regards, Jaime Bonnett Assistant Manager
