Relax and chill

Overall nice hotel, bit pricey especially if you don't get a balcony, pool area nice. Downside was when we asked for late checkout were advised $20 per hour after 10. I am sure there are a lot better hotels more reasonably priced.

Disappointed

Unfortunately our room was not clean, when we arrived there were biscuit crumbs on the bench and the floors had not been cleaned. There was a very loud noise coming from the air conditioning and was unable to sleep.

Disappointed

This is a 4 star hotel! We were less than impressed to learn, on our arrival, that the pool was undergoing maintenance! In the peak tourist season! We could use the facilities of their sister hotel, a few blocks away! Not good enough! Hot water not available in our room. We reported this, and were eventually told the maintenance staff had left for the day! No, we will not be going back!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Tourist information centre, World war II tour on back of army truck (with comfortable seating). Visit to military museum. Excellent commentary. Shows how much we owe to our defenders in the early stages of the war

Very Pleasant.

Lovely place. Could do with a makeover in the bathrooms but otherwise lovely. My only negative was that there was no toothpaste provided which is normally standard with shampoo etc. Central location. Harbour view lovely to wake up to.

Weekend Break

The hotel is in a fantastic location just a short walk to Mitchell street restaurants and night life. Rooms are comfortable but bathrooms are a little dated as is the pool area. Staff were helpful and courteous at all times. A good all-round hotel.

Convenient and comfortable

We stayed at The Mantra on the Esplanade Darwin for four nights. Our booking and check in was very smoothly handled, and throughout our stay we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The Mantra is located near to the Transit Station so it was very convenient. Also we loved walking along the waterfront park opposite the hotel. Smith Street Mall is one street away and has supermarkets and most shoppng you could hope for. I would recommend this hotel as clean, and one to consider when looking for Darwin accommodation.

Good for small child family holidays

Comfortable unit that was clean and ideally located to the city CBD. No worry about needing to walk far to restaurants, clubs and shops, less than 1 minutes walk.. The restaurant and bar in the hotel complex is good and well priced. Having to pay $15 for undercover secure car parking in the wet season was the only downer, or face having to park on the street and feed the parking meters !!

Darwin Holiday

Hotel was in a great location & the 1 br ocean view apartment was great. Full amenties in the room which made it easy & comfortable to stay for 7 nights - the only downside was the pool. The pool is very old & needs some work - most days it was dirty and had an unknown film floating on top which was not inviting even on an extremely hot & humid day. Parking was also an issue - $15 a day ... a bit steep but probably normal for darwin. But again room was big and very comfortable - good value for money.
