We enjoyed our stay found the room a little pocky and would have preferred a view but maybe should have taken more care when booking. The restaurant was pleasant but the menu needed just a couple of basic alternatives. This does not mean we didn't enjoy our stay, it was perfect location for a concert at the arts centre

We recently stayed in the two bedroom apartment for two days and we were very disappointed with this hotel, the balconies were covered in dirt and cobwebs that looked as if they had been there for years, marks on the walls, soap scum in the bathroom and crumbs on the carpets. We had breakfast also and that was also disappointing...

It was a last minute plan for family holiday in Melbourne. We stayed at Southbank Mantra in a gallery appartments & had beautiful view from our lounge room and daily housekeeping + on site parking, but it cost a lot. Like other Mantra it's not flash or high end hotel feeling when you get there, but it was big enough...

I felt the bathroom needed some attention. The room service was impeccable as was the friendly reception staff. Always able to assist when enquiringly about sites and tours. The pool area was always clean.

Located close to everything. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. Didn't try the food from the hotel bar because it's so close to the river and I decided to sample the food and drinks from there instead!

nice apartment with kitchen, bathroom a bit dated and could have more shelving, other wise good. locate close to CBD and major attractions, we attended a ball at the national gallery and it was only a short walk there, also has on site parking at no extra cost, something you don't always get. overall a very pleasant experience.

Fabulous location. Attentive staff. Enjoy staying here. Fair bit of road noise but you get that in a busy city. Bed was very comfy and all requests were catered for. Parking was no problem and our friends enjoyed their stay in this two bedroom/two bathroom apartment.

Good location - rooms need some work on them - somewhat dated - stove very old - balcony sliding door need wheels replaced with commercial quality wheels - water leaking from units above onto front balcony perhaps whilst people are showering - water stopped after about 5 minutes Pillows were terrible quality and mad for poor sleep patterns

Got a 2 bedroom suite for a family of 4 (kids are 10 and 11). Location is decent, about a 10 minute walk from downtown, but the accommodations have had some issues. Our room faces an art center which had had loud outdoor parties going late into the night and it can be tough to sleep with all the music...
