Convenient and comfortable - just right.
A fantastic apartment. Quiet, comfortable and convenient to everything in Canberra. Lots of room and all you need to stay for a night or a week. Our hosts were available and helpful. Tom and Debbie have set this place up very well with design touches that make it feel like a home away from home.
Just perfect for us!
Everything about our stay here was perfect. Loved the eclectic decor, the living spaces were clean and comfortable - everything we needed was available plus more. The location worked well for us and effective communication ensured a smooth arrival and departure. Will definitely be back!
We had a lovely time staying in this property, nice and quiet neighbourhood and short distance to CBD.
Nice house, nice hosts, preparation for our visit a bit slack.
We enjoyed the stay, but initially we were disappointed, With a cost up near the Mantra prices I expected it should of been better.
With the following information, our hosts may alter their practices.
It was bin day when we arrived and the bin missed collection and smelt sour for the week. It was near the entry.
We found numerous roaches initially , they were living in the knife block. These should of been found during cleaning as there were many dropping. No insect spray was available.
The courtesy milk was off, the date was OK so it must have been out.
The bin was not lined and it was a few days before we found the bin bags.
The weather was very hot and the bedroom was uncomfortable in the heat, it had limited air flow until we asked for a fan,. A quality 7 speed fan with low noise would of been better.
The Bedroom is carpeted and seemed to affect my asthma. It was not dirty but possibly aged.
Craig and his wife’s almost week-long stay with us unfortunately coincided with extreme temperatures and dangerous bushfires/smoky air in the Canberra area. The negative comments surprised us, although we do agree that it is ideal (but tricky to juggle) for the council's weekly rubbish removal to be done just prior to each guest’s arrival. For future guests’ clarification: the sighting of ‘roaches’ was totally unexpected (professional eco-fumigation now done just in case); in addition to the fans provided, guests can choose to leave the bedroom door to the living area open to get the benefit of the unit’s aircon; sour milk is never OK and we might have to boycott the place we bought it :) ; the outside bins can easily be moved away from the entry area; the unit is in fact newly renovated and furnished, with high quality carpet; and we would point out that a stay at the Mantra in a one b/room apartment is nearly twice as expensive (Craig may have had in mind a studio room - not a true comparison). We warmly encourage guests to raise any issues that arise during their stay so we can try to make things right.
Beautiful home among the trees
This is such a beautiful home - immaculate, well appointed, in a beautiful leafy location close to everywhere and in walking distance from local shops - we started and ended every day with birdsong. Check in and out was easy and our hosts wonderful and easy to communicate with. Simply perfect.
Sooo clean and had a very comfortable bed it has everything and more needed for a lovely stay thankyou
