My husband & I stayed in Brisbane for the rugby tens last weekend. We really enjoyed staying at the Mantra Southbank. The staff were welcoming and made us feel relaxed and at home. Southbank is a great location for a weekend away - lots of options for eating out and Southbank has a real holiday feel.

A great place to stay, well appointed. Close to great cafes and restaurants. The staff were very friendly. We arrived early in the morning and our room was ready for us within 30 minutes (well before 9:00am). Very impressive.

Stone Restaurant & Bar looked great when we walked in, however, that is where it ended. We booked for 6pm as we had a show to go to at 8pm. Our orders were taken after about 15mins and then we waited for at least an hour for the food to be served. OMG what a disaster that was. The beef...

Great service from the moment we checked in from very friendly staff. Were upgraded to a one bed city view. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable. Perfect location for the city and the shows. Definitely be back.

In my opinion the attitude of staff makes or break a place and can make your experience either memorable or simply meh. The attitude of staff upon my check out was one of 'I couldn't care less'. There was no warmth or friendliness and my check out was processed simply as yet another transaction. An enquiry about the train service...

Had a great stay at the Manta Southbank. Only things that I would recommend would be on the side away from the noise of the trains and swimming pool area. Also for the management they need to look at their Keycard entry to the room, our room 615 could take up to 10-15 inserts of the keycard to get the...

Good stay. Nice clean hotel and very good service. Location is outstanding and in the right part of South Bank to access good restaurants and bars. strange that the lobby bar closed at approx. 8,30pm and had customers wanting more drinks. We had to go over the road for our last drinks.

Overall a great hotel to stay if you are going to an event on Southbank. My only issue is due to the number of guests staying and going to a concert the staff were experiencing pressure to provide meals in time. Maybe a set menu??

Right from the front door the service started. Valet parking and Front desk staff are very friendly. Free upgrade was gratefully accepted. We had dinner before the show and breakfast next day were both supreme. Very nice Happy Hour offered value drinks. Strangely no one complained that it ran for TWO hours. Will definatly return to Mantra.

I had a very spacious room this time with a view of the Brisbane CBD. The cafe/bar downstairs is a nice place to hang out. Only peeve would be paying still fairly high internet fees, which have now been dropped at many other places in Australia.
