Great home base for visiting Cairns.

Loved the apartment style room that included a proper kitchen, washing machine and dryer. Fantastic location on the Esplanade. Free secure parking was a winner as well. Enjoyed peace and quiet despite it's mid city location. Definitely would recommend and hope to revisit.

Short getaway

Great location. Good size rooms. Arrived at 12.30 and was told check-in was 2pm ( even though it stated 1pm in confirmation) and they would call us when room was ready. When we returned to hotel at 2.35pm they checked us in without any apologies for not calling. Both times there were no other guests at the counter. Wonder how they would cope in busy times.

Great spot, Fantastic family holiday.

The Mantra Esplanade is a perfect spot to stay at in Cairns. It is central to everything that we needed. Our family would definitely stay here again, if we traveled back to Cairns.

COULD STEP UP IN THE CLEANLINESS DEPARTMENT

Great location with friendly and helpful staff, BUT, cleanliness is a big issue here. The bedspread on the bed was dirty and the shower tiles had mould in the grout. At the swimming pool we got out after only 5 minutes after seeing the thick mould in the spa on the tiles and the grey scum on the tiles of the swimming pool. YUK! I also thought that charging a daily rate to access the in-room safe a bit of a rip-off. But on the plus side, the parking was free. I did not realise that the room rate didn't include daily servicing of the room either, but the staff gave us clean towels which was really all we needed. I would stay there again as it is good value and a great location, BUT they would have to clean up a lot first.

Great breakfast location on the corner - Coast Roast, and a lovely air-con restaurant (a must in summer!) on the opposite corner - Casa De Meze - nice food at a good price, especially if you are seated before 6.30pm as you get an early bird discount of 25%!!

Large chain hotel experience

Overall, was good, but with a large hotel individual staff may greatly affect the experience. 2 of the 3 staff were good, but one refusing to listen to me or look carefully at my voucher, insisted that I was trying to fit too many people into the rooms I'd booked. Almost an hour it took for the staff to realise it was their mistake. Put a really negative mood to the group, especially after I'd chosen to book this hotel because I was advised on the website that the rooms I wanted for my group were perfect. Will be staying at a smaller boutique hotel next time.
