Comfortable for a longer stay
Posted Nov 8, 2015
We spent 4 nights at the Mantra Collins for a 4-day weekend in Hobart. We had a one bedroom apartment which was great with the extra space that comes with the combined kitchen, living & dining space. Two TVs was also great (it was the RWC final that weekend). A great view over some of the mountains and close to everything - 5-10min walk to some great restaurants, Salamanca Markets & all the other goings along around that space. If you hire a car, its close to get from the hotel to just about anything. The room was perfectly compact but spacious & well worth avoiding a typical studio hotel room. Bed was super comfortable. Pillows no so much (mostly feather pillows). Room service was great - the breakfasts we ordered were delivered quickly and not your standard boring hotel breakfast fare - I had the smashed avocado with fetta & lemon on sourdough. The shower pressure/water volume was pretty poor - often going hot and cold through the shower. My only other issue is the lack of general storage in the bathroom for two people - tiny soap shelf and nothing else in the shower, not enough bench space aside the basin for all the things girls need! Parking wasn't included in our room price, the parking was adjacent and a cap of $15/day. Wifi wasn't included either - we purchased $20 for 3 days & 3 devices. Worth noting there is no gym at the hotel & they do have a relationship with another gym close by, but with limited open hours.
