I would not be able to commend the girls at the front desk, lovely and so helpful. The room and pools were beautiful and had a kookaburra visit us every morning. So close to everything in town barely used the car at all. Nice, relaxing, quiet holiday :)

We stayed here last year for the first time, having previously holidayed in other apartments in Nelson Bay, and now make this our regular apartment of choice. The reception staff are always professional and a pleasure to deal with. The apartments are extremely comfortable and well-equipped eg. everything you could want in the kitchen, a large lcd tv in the lounge room plus a smaller one in the main bedroom, easy parking and a lift underneath the apartments etc. It's an easy stroll to the nearby marina, breakwater, restaurants and shops. It's pass-only access to the complex after dark, not that this is a high crime area - quite the opposite. Perhaps the only down-side is that the free wifi service is very flaky. It's not the fastest connection and often seems to drop out. It was like this last year and doesn't seem to have improved. Nevertheless, we're still coming back next year.

We stayed in the penthouse apartment, where it was three bedroms three and a half bathrooms. The main bedroom had a walk in robe with an ensuit which is on the main floor the second room had an ensuit with a double bed and and then the third room had to two single beds with a full bathroom right next door.
The kictchen is very modern with updated appliances.
Absolutely loved it, very spacious and very clean. Its close to everything and less than five minutes to get to town on foot. Would stay here again. The only down side too it is that theres a little water tank so the hot water does run out and its very low pressure. Other than that though the family and i loved it.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband's family - 5 adults, 1 child and a baby in a 3 bedroom apartment. It was good value with a groupon voucher however we had problems with our hot water which was not good in the middle of winter! This was especially bad on the second night, the hot water ran out half way through my shower and two of our group had to go without a shower after that as the water was freezing cold. We discovered the hot water tank was not very big. We had used the washing machine and dishwasher that day which most likely contributed to the problem but one would think that an apartment of the size would accommodate for this. Other areas could do with improvement - pillows were not comfortable, very few amenities were provided (only the basics and once we ran out we had to buy our own) and rooms were not serviced during our stay (only for stays of 7 days or more). I thought the charges for cots and highchairs were a bit excessive (cots $15 per day, highchairs $5 per day) but I guess they have to make their money in some way given the rates we paid. On the good side, the apartments are well located being only a few minutes walk from the main town, the staff were pleasant and the apartments were modern and spacious. We also liked the addition of Foxtel with a variety of TV channels. All in all, our stay was acceptable apart from the hot water issues.

Just got back from a 3 night stay here in a 2 bedroom pool view apartment. We stayed here with a voucher which was very good value for money. From check-in to check-out the stay we had was lovely. All the ladies were friendly and welcoming from the minute we got there to the minute we left. The apartment was quite big and well kitted out - even had free foxtel with movie channels (loved that feature for a nice evening in for watching movies). The Mantra is so close to the town centre, only a couple of minutes walk to the Marina as well - and is located in a nice and quiet area. Would definitely go back to the Mantra!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the pool are nice!
