Boxing Day to New Years

This hotel is in a great location. It's within a couple of minutes walk to the restaurant hub of Southbank. It's a 10 minute walk to the Casino. The rooms while tiny are very clean and quite modern. The staff were fantastic. The pool and spa was really nice and clean. The only drawback was the fully equiped gym.... while there was a treadmill, rower, exercise bike and a couple of weight machines, there was no free weights, bench or anything that you could work on regarding biceps, triceps and very limited chest. We would be very likely to stay there again....

Night in Melbourne

I stayed at Mantra Southbank for 1 night with my sister, we had a 2 bedroom appartment with a nice view of flinders street station. We were very happy with the room, location and the staff are very friendly. This is my second stay here, I booked a 1 bedroom appartment 2 weeks ago and it was great then as well. Looking forward to seeing what it will look like when the renovations are complete.

Great Location!

Great location, great view from our room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was delicious. The only down side was that 2 Adults had to share the fold out sofa bed, Not very comfortable for 2 people, Apart from that the room was spacious and comfortable.

Mantra Southbank

A little disappointed this trip, small things but not what you expect when you pay $240 a night. Bathroom sink did not drain (took a very long time), there was a hole in the bathroom door, no potato peeler or fry pan in the kitchen. I also had a room on city road which was pretty noisy.

Wow we loved it

We had a wonderful time. Are room was better than we expected with a kitchen and plenty of space. We thought it was just going to be a room with an ensuite. 2 teenagers slept on fold out sofa lounge and we had a separate room. Had everything we needed. Kids loved the pool and i loved relaxing in the spa. Breakfast was nice and was included which was great. Not one complaint from us. It was so close to everything. We caught the train to flinders st and it was a short work to hotel and everything else.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

catch the train into the city. Everything is in walking distance. Eureka tower, Southgate, Casino. Shopping. Why pay parking fees.
