We had the pleasure of spending 10 nights at the hotel. We had a two room apartment that was well laid out. Having dryer and washing machine was brilliant. Plenty of eating choices nearby. The pool is warm and easy to access. Car park is tight. Reception was excellent and very helpful. My only small issue was that the room only got cleaned once in 10 days, maybe every 4 days would have been better. Would be very happy to stay there again. Very family friendly.
We have just returned back home to Victoria after spending 2 weeks at the Mantra on Hay in Perth. I booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 couples - myself, my wife and my wife’s parents. The apartment was spacious, clean and located on the 5th floor with a limited view from our balcony of the Swan River. We appreciated all the usual mod cons of a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. I really appreciated the indoor heated pool on level 8 which also had gym equipment located on the northern end. From the time of arrival to departure we found the reception staff to be very accomodating and we felt like part of the Mantra family. A big shout out to Kris, James, Matthew and Phillipe just to name a few. I booked our accommodation with the breakfast package which was very reasonable, so we ate daily in the on-site Cornerstone Bar & Kitchen which offered an A’ La Carte menu. The Cornerstone was well supervised by the personable and hard working Hari who made our stay even more pleasurable. The location of Mantra on Hay was superb. It was a 15 minute walk into the Hay and Murray Street shopping malls (CBD) or accessible by the free Red CAT bus, 5 minutes away. The Red CAT bus stop is located 60 metres from the Mantra - turn left out of the hotel and located in front of Australia Post or across the road from the Carlton Hotel. I visited the Mantra on Murray which is in the heart of the Perth CBD and certainly not as quiet as Mantra on Hay. Directly across the road from Mantra on Hay is a BWS as well as several eateries for lunch or dinner. The Swan River is a 5 minute walk along Bennet Street from the apartments. The only negatives we could find are; although the wifi in the pool/gym, foyer and the Cornerstone was good, wifi signal in the apartment was generally poor most of the time. Secondly, on our last night we had the apartment above us (610 as informed) occupied by a group of young males who partied all night. I reported to reception early the following morning to be told they had already checked out early. Of course I should have reported it during the night. Overall, the Mantra on Hay is highly recommended for the above reasons. We will certainly go back on future visits to Perth. Cheers, Paul…
2 bed apartment was well set up and great for us as 2 couples. Air in all rooms greatly appreciated as it 38+ when we stayed. Undercover rooftop pool was also brilliant. Undercover parking was very tight so be aware if you have a larger vehicle.
Dissapointing, especially given the pricing. I had read a few reviews about bad odours in rooms and never experienced that until i stayed here. Shower smelt so bad I could barely go in the bathroom. Facilties run down and let go a bit. The location is semi-ok but still a walk to anything in the city. I would be dissapointed in paying $100 to stay here let alone $300. And just as a bonus, there was a huge cockcroach scurrying around on the bench. Given the other options of hotels in Perth I would readily encourage you to book elsewhere.
My stay was awsome ive only ever stayed at the kings hotel, the ridges hotel or the cheap ones or just motor hotels. The mantra was one of the shiners thats stood out from all of them. Im verry pleased with the service and over all place to stay thats confy I called a home away from home for 2 days.
