Our stay was very pleasant with courteous staff and clean rooms. The location is fantastic, you're right in the middle of town but far enough away that the creatures of the night won't bother you.

I always receive a warm welcome at the Mantra on Northbourne and the staff are very polite and attentive. A great place to stay, and could not be any closer to the city with a short walk to shops, restaurants, gyms and entertainment.

I would be happy to recommend this motel. Friendly helpful staff and very comfortable rooms. The motel is in a very convenient location with great access to all areas in Canberra. The downstairs restaurant served quality food and the restaurant staff were very good.

Thank you for a very comfortable stay. Staff handled a fire alarm well, and kept us informed. Very friendly. I would like to see free parking when staying at the hotel, since we are already paying guests. This is the first hotel i've been to that charges guests parking.

Mantra was great. We had our room at discounted price, the apartment was really lovely, we had our own little kitchen to cook from and a beautiful bathtub to soak ourselves in. It was a walking distance to the city which offered a lot of healthy choices. All in all. It was EXCELLENT!! Thank you!
