We stayed at the Mantra South Bank for 5 nights at the beginning of March. It is very modern and in a great location close to everything that South Bank has to offer. Unfortunately, Queensland was experiencing its worse weather for 100 years and we only had one fine day for the duration of our trip.
Our room was located on level 3, at the front, so we didn't experience any train noise. The room was directly overlooking the lap pool and the main street, but the windows are double glazed so we weren't disturbed too much by traffic noise.
The room was spacious and modern but we were surprised at the lack of storage. The wardrobe was quite small and was so full of other items - ironing board, phone directories, safe, etc. that there was hardly any room to hang our clothes. In fact, my husband lived out of his suitcase for the duration of our stay!
The bathroom was nice and modern but again there was a lack of storage, with just a soap dish in the shower and nowhere to place shampoo and other products, apart from on the floor.
The buffet breakfast was nice, but we were quite surprised at the lack of service. My husband ordered poached eggs one morning, but it took 20 minutes for them to arrive at our table. We were also surprised that our plates weren't removed from the table after each course, considering that it was pretty quiet for the duration of our stay.
All that aside, this is a very nice hotel and close to everything. Reception staff were very efficient and friendly, and it was great to be greeted by a concierge holding an umbrella on our trips to and from our car.
