Mantra Hotels have served up a winner for guests who can now get up close with Australian tennis legend Pat Rafter - not quite with the man himself, but with life-size cut outs of the new Mantra ambassador appearing in hotel lobbies across Australia as part of the new 'Check Out My Check in' competition.

A holiday snap with Pat and check in uploaded to Facebook could win guests a weekly $200 gift card spot prize drawn at random with a $1000 gift card being awarded at the end of the 12 week competition to the check-in photo with the most votes. The competition has been launched just in time for school holidays where a host of Mantra properties across Australia will welcome families looking to take the Great Australian Holiday.

The life-size cut out of Pat in leisure mode ready for the beach will feature in holiday destinations such as the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns and Northern New South Wales but business travellers can also take part with a 'corporate-style Pat' taking up residence in the lobbies of CBD hotels located in all capital cities.

A dedicated app has been set up for iPhone and Android users who will receive full details of the app download and competition when they make a booking with Mantra hotels and resorts. Full details are also available at Mantra front desks on check in.

Take advantage of Pat's Mates Rates and get snapping for your chance to win!  Here's a 'snapshot' of what's on offer, available for booking at
