    Easily recommended

    My little family (myself, my wife & 3yr old son) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well situated just at the top of the shops of Nelson Bay and only a short walk from the marina. The hotel has a lovely pool with a spa in the centre of the property and parking underneath the buildings. The room itself was a 2 bedroom on the ground floor and was more space than we needed but always welcoming when bringing a young child. The room was clean and had everything you needed for a short or long stay. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs a place at Nelson Bay

    The Mantra is an expensive option with few things to really feel good about. The common areas were dirty and had not had attention for a long while. The whole complex is tired and shows damage in parts. Stains on lounges and mouldy showers did not impress.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It was excellent experience, however there are 2 things I must note here : 1. I was staying in Block B where the lift was out of order on a few occasions and it was a bit inconvenient because of the 40 guests I have in the group there are a few elderly or those with some physical movements problem. 2. We were 2 couples in one apartment with 2 cars but given only 1 parking spot until before the last day when I met the General manager Lienne then I was given a second car parking spot. After all people were happy.

    It was ok. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment & there was only one aircon in the lounge & it was 42 degrees. We asked for extra towels & they refused to give.
