“Ok but nothing special”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip in a two bedroom apartment.
It was a nice apartment, balcony and a bathroom each.
Downside was - it was hot and the air conditioning wasn't that effective in the bedrooms but was freezing cold in the lounge room - that is until I turned it off for a while. It then didn't restart and had to have the maintenance crew come and turn the compressor back on.
Staff were friendly and the light lunch i ate in the bar was ok.

We stayed here for 1 night mid May. The location is perfect being close to everything. The room was spacious and had everything necessary. Breakfast was small but really nice with a good variety. All staff had a smile on their faces and were friendly. The only complaints were that our airconditioner was a bit noisy and the dinner menu in the restaurant was limited. On a 1 or 2 night basis we would definitely stay again.

One more week to go.

Overall the hotel is OK. If i was footing the bill - i would be asking for my money back. Will be suggesting to the company that they book elsewhere in the future.

Location: Excellent

Rooms are hot if you don't turn the AC on - you need to choose if you would like to stay awake and be cool or sleep and boil. AC is very loud. Did i mention very!!!!

Serviced apartments must mean the following: Change towels, make the toilet paper ends into pretty triangles and make the bed. They haven't passed the vacuum or so much as wiped down the suite. There has been a shampoo spot on the bathroom floor for 4 days now- sink needs a wipe. The carpet hasn't been vacuumed in a week, same lint in the same spots. They have a vacuum because i see it in the hallway. Tempted to borrow it to clean my room.

King size bed== two double beds with a split(lump) in the middle. Must be the new style

Laundry Facilities: Go buy new clothes. Only one floor has working machines. You need a loan to get your laundry dried - keep pumping money into the machine

Breakfast; 28$ for a buffet breakfast is wild but acceptable if the food is decent. I wanted to make waffles- picked up the small batter container and it was caked over. I showed to the young lady- she looked at it and just took it to the kitchen... Didn't say a thing and never brought back a replacement-- yes it was the last one.

Hallways: There has been a food tray in the hall for 2 days now.

Staff: Very friendly

That enough for now- i must turn off the AC so i can get back to bed

Just spend one Saturday night. Had a great room on the 6th floor. Hotel is smack in the middle of town, so very handy to pubs and restaurants. Only issue was that people came and went at all hours of the night banging doors so sleep was a tad disjointed.

Noisy! The pub across the road is STILL going as I write this approaching midnight on a Wed night. No double glazing means they may as well have their bad dance music in the room with me.

The fridge buzzes and sings right next to you all night.

Forget about having the airconditioning on while you sleep, its like having a freight train in the room.

Then there is the running water from the room above as clear as you had turned on the tap yourself.

My internet was on and off all night and despite repeated calls with their outsourced provider could not be fixed.

I turned down the bed to discover pillows which appear to be dirty, I dread to think from the previous occupant but it looks that way...

The restaurant is OUTREAGEOUS on pricing, and no not comparable to other similar restaurants in the strip...

For the price I really expected more. Won't be suggesting any of our staff stay here going forward.

Reviewed 28 April 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2014. The strengths of the "Mantra on Murray" is that it is in a good location and we found the check in staff helpful. They have a $25 deal a day for parking with the centre over the road, which for us worked out well. The bed is comfortable, and our room was large (though the slightly dated layout doesn't make use of the space) . The main problem has been well covered with over reviews. The hotel is very hot and stuffy in the main areas. Although the rooms have individual split airconditioners, our was noisy and difficult to sleep with. The room although dated, was clean and presented OK. One of our key cards did not work very well.
