This hotel has an easy check in. Friendly staff. Parking is $20 a day. The rooms are a little tired, could use a lick of paint and the decor feels a little dated. Walking distance to brilliant cafes and a stones throw from rundle mall. Good value.

Only comment is that the water pressure is poor. I booked this Adelaide Mantra after staying in Brisbane one. Brisbane Mantra was top of the class as compared to Adelaide one. There was not much difference in price as well.

East access to downtown and Central Business District, Clean and pleasant environment, Mantra has always been a reliable hotel to stay at with good service and professional staff. I have never been disappointed with a Mantra. Mantra of Frome lived up to Mantras reputation.

Mantra on Frome is a short walk way from Rundle Street eateries, shopping in Rundle Mall, and easily accessible to public transport. Great location for business travellers and also couples/families. Extremely comfortable rooms.

Nice stay good location. Excellent service, very friendly and helpful. Rooms were great and well catered for - good to have washing machine and dryer as well as kitchenette with oven,cooktop and microwave. Would have been good to have some tourist information brochures/maps etc in the foyer to take away.

I have stayed in a number of rooms at Mantra and they vary on bed quality and bathroom quality. Some have been renovated and others are tired. Poor water pressure in shower in the room 406 and the bathroom, while clean, is showing signs of age.

We visited for 4 nights in November and found the Mantra on Frome to be a great spot. Having stayed at many different Adelaide CBD accommodation spots, this would have to be one of the best.

Dear Louie, Thank you for the feedback, however I am wondering if, on your travels, you are mistaking us with another property, as we do not offer a valet parking service. Otherwise it was great to read that you enjoyed your stay! Best Regards, Stuart Riddell

The room was very clean, good clean linen, towels were nice and thick. Some rooms can be noisy from road noise if you are not use to traffic. Spa was very nice. Convenient location. Service was good and staff friendly
