“A real alt to Meriton Parramatta”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Meriton is - according to TA - the #1 choice in P'matta.

For three months I have stayed at Meriton 2-3 nights/week. This week I stayed at Mantra for 4 nights.

I liked Mantra a lot.

I like it BETTER than Meriton as follows:

• the entrance is much easier with luggage (Meriton have steps and access is a hassle)
• the service shines and feels more like a hotel than Meriton
• Mantra has a great bar, restaurant and in house room service (food and service are great)
• the beds are better
• shops (incl supermarket!!) are within an easy walk as is train.
• Mantra is right in the hub and buzz of P'matta whilst Meriton is up the other end.

However Meriton's furnishings, kitchen and presentation are superior.

If you have a car Meriton is better because you can buy ingredients for cooking and bring back with ease.

Either choice is fine. Meriton wins it overall but Mantra is a very good choice - and depending on proximity to train and Westfield has an advantage

Great 3 day Break & R&R, Great Location, Good Shopping Yummy Food & Fantastic Accommodation. Lots to do around Parramatta. We went on the Parramatta River Cruise to Circular Quay in Sydney & Back A Great Day, Great Sights & Points of Interest. We were Pampered & Very Spoilt with a Great Meal at Parramatta Leagues Club. We went to a Sporting Venue to watch Nrl Football Rugby League Game Had a Fantastic Day. We were Extra & Very Well Treated by the Mantra Parramatta Staff Everything was Excellent & nothing was a problem, made our stay even more Special we were treated like "Royalty" would definately recommend & Visit ourselves again.

Room Tip: Rooms Located on higher floors are very quiet & the view is Great.

So far I have stayed at the Mantra Parramatta on 10 occasions for work over the last few months. Each time I have found the staff friendly and the room and facilities excellent. Special mention should be made of Renee on the front desk who has gone out of her way to ensure each visit has been as good as it could be. Nothing has been too much trouble, She defines what customer service should be.

Mantra Parramatta was the perfect stay.

The little things they did for me made my experience even better than expected. I received an upgrade which made me feel very welcomed. The room was perfect. Ordered room service and they were very quick and efficient. After a very long day, these things just made me feel relaxed and very comfortable. The next night i stayed at different 5 star hotel, and Mantra Parramatta had much more attention to detail and a welcoming feel to the 5 star i stayed at. The staff at Mantra Parramatta felt genuienly friendly and not over the top like the other place i stayed at.

I will always choose Mantra.

I liked this hotel to begin with but it didnt stay that way I won't say I hated it but something about it didnt make me feel welcome at all?
Once we got to the room I got annoyed at the fact that we had two single beds and I never asked for that we ended up pushing the beds together so, then I checked my card and it has been charged with a extra 50 which hasn't appeared on the bill have contract hotel hopefully get a reply very soon

The rooms in this hotel are very spacious and comfortable. Whilst the bed was also comfortable the pillows let the experience down as there are hard and small.and I found it difficult to sleep.
The room was very cold on entry and had to put the heating up, however as the key also operated the electricity, the minute you left the room it got cold again.I needed to keep the heater on most of the night.
Bathroom was clean and well equipped.
One of the most positive things about this hotel is the staff friendliness and the willingness to please whether it was Reception or the bar staff. I did not eat in the Restaurant so cannot comment on the food but it did look quite nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lifts

I stayed at Mantra parramatta on the Easter weekend 18th April for 3 nights. We were there for the swimming nationals.the room was a good size beds comfortable.and room very clean. The service was always friendly. The price was good and was a easy walk to the Westfield Parramatta and public transport. Only negatives was I asked for extra pillows but said I could only have 1 more as they had no more pillows available. Also the breakfast was really ordinary. And not worth the $$. But on a positive note I had bad fall whilst on holiday and the girls at front desk were helpful giving us a late check out . Would stay again definitely.
