A hostel, not a hotel

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

The_Marathonrunners TripAdvisor review

Mantra Portsea is stated as a hotel. But there are no house keeping what so ever! The room was very small. Towels did not dry in the room and after two days they smelled bad. 5 nights stay qualifies to just one replacement of towels. If toilet paper runs out you need to ask for more in the reception. Tea and coffee in the room is included but you need to go to the reception to get tea bags and instant coffee bags! If the bin in the room is full you need to use other space in the room for garbage, like the floors. Only a sheet on the bed, no quilt! Internet via wi-fi is not included. Extra charge of $14AUD per day for wi-fi. Don't pay for this! It does not work! You get connection for about 15 up to 60 seconds, if you are lucky, then you are disconnected. You then need to struggle to get connection again. And this goes on 24/7! Totally useless! Buy a SIM-plan for your mobile instead! The maximum download speed we got was 1,65Mb/sec! Upload was 0,8Mb/sec! But only when we had connection to the wi-fi! It was to noisy to use the balcony. Poolbar just outside the room playing music at a loud volume. Breakfast standard fits a standard hostel level. No boiled eggs, no fried eggs, no bacons, no scrambled egg, orange - apple - and pinapple jouice that has a taste of some chemical substans. The breakfast room is to cold! Almost like a frigde! The hotel refuses to accept cash. The reason is that the hotels bank does not handle cash. You must use a card and then the hotel ads surcharge on payments! Mantra Portsea has no restaurant. The only offeer they have are a small selection of premaid small pizza in the pool bar. The staff is friendly, specially in the pool bar and in the breakfast room. But there are a couple of persons in the reception that are not that friendly. Checkout is already at 10:00 AM. The surroundings are nice and it is around 300 meter to the Four Mile Beach. And that is more or less the good thing with this so called hotel. It is rated as a four star hotel. How that can be is nothing we do understand as it operates as a hostel.

Dear The_Marathonrunners, Thank you for sharing your feedback about your recent stay at Mantra Portsea Hotel. Please accept my sincere and heartfelt apologies for the obvious inconvenience caused during your stay. Regarding servicing of Rooms, we provide housekeeping services for stays of 8 days or more and limited towel changes for stays above 3 days. For shorter stays of 3 days or less unfortunately room servicing is not provided. We try to be as open and transparent regarding this and we apologise that this impacted your overall stay experience. I have also shared your comments regarding Breakfast with our F&B Team and appreciate your view point. We believe that the Continental Breakfast provided is a solid offering with quality products and variety, some of which are local, however we understand that it missed the mark for you during your stay. Feedback like yours is important to grow our product further, so thank you. Regarding the Internet, this is unfortunately due to the Fibre to the Node connection into the building provided as part of the National Broadband Network in Australia. In Port Douglas sadly the Internet is considerably slow throughout the entire region and until such time as the Government upgrades the network to provide Fibre to the Premises, which would then supply significantly faster speeds, there is little we can do to remedy this issue at present however we are working with our current supplier to see if anything further can be done to improve existing speeds. We are sincerely sorry though that this affected your experience. Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it is only through such feedback that we can address any concerns or feedback that may have otherwise been overlooked. Should you allow us an opportunity to make amends in the future, rest assured we will do all we can to look after you and restore your faith in us. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future where I have no doubt your experience will be greatly improved. Kind Regards, Paul Cahill General Manager

On arrival we requested to be changed to a different room which was kindly facilitated by staff. However I have nothing else positive to say about this hotel. The room stunk like a wet room. There was mold all over blinds. The breakfast was ordinary including toaster that blew fuse every time you put them down. The service at pool bar was non existent. We were so disappointed and would have checked out on arrival with exception that we were staying with a group

Dear Belinda, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at the Mantra PortSea. My apologies for your disappointing experience. We have really missed the mark in a number of areas and this is not acceptable for our Resort. I appreciate you bringing this to our attention and I will be auditing the room you stayed in with our Maintenance and Housekeeping Managers to rectify the items mentioned. Sincerely, The PortSea Team

Good location, comfortable stay

Nice hotel, lovely location, wonderful staff but there was no housekeeping service provided for my room except for towel replacement. That was a bit disappointing.
