Excellent location. Clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast area and food great. Asked for single beds, got up to room late and found king bed. Took 15-20 mins for someone to come up to room but we were given a complimentary breakfast which was excellent customer service.

Amazing romantic getaway

Our stay at the Mantra was amazing! We often go out to the city for weekend getaways and this is by far the best hotel we have stayed at. The hotel is beautiful and well looked after and the room we booked was beautiful. What really made the Mantra stand out was the amazing service from all of the staff. Everyone was friendly and happy to organise things for us that we requested (eg) we wanted housekeeping later in the day as we slept in that morning and missed the usual time. The buffet and parking was great and I haven’t felt as happy about a trip as I have now.
