Stayed for a few nights of luxury, which didn't really happen. The room was dated, especially the bathroom. The bath had two sets of taps sticking into the shower area, meaning that I repeatedly banged body parts while showering! The showerhead kept falling into the bath. There wasn't too much noise from other rooms, but over the weekend the music... More

We stayed for 10 days from the 1st June. We were on our honeymoon and were really looked after well. We arrived around 2.30pm and the wonderful receptionist gave us a great room on the seventh floor overlooking the harbour. Thank you. Ash and Nicole from the restaurant and bar looked after us and he organised champagne in our room.... More

On arriving we discovered our travel agent had booked the wrong accommodation This matter was quickly solved by reception in a pleasant and efficient manner and we got the apartment we wanted. The hotel itself is in a convenient position to enjoy all that Darwin has to offer. The room service was 1st class. Overall a wonderful time was had... More

Stayed here two nights at the end of a tour with AAT Kings. We upgraded to a harbour view as the first room we were allocated had a lot of outside noise and was at the rear of the hotel. Breakfast was served in a light airy restaurant at the front of the hotel and there was a good selection... More

We stayed in a one bedroom Harbourview apartment overlooking the ocean. The apartment was very well equipped, comfortable and contained everything we needed. The hotel is centrally located, within walking distance of everything in the Darwin CBD, but still quiet. The staff were helpful and efficient, and housekeeping was really high auality

My wife and I have been going to Darwin for many years now and have always enjoyed our stay at the Mantra Esplanade. We prefer the one bedroom apartment with city views which is very relaxing soaking up the morning sun on the balcony. They also have great room amenities with kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer (great for extended stays) TV in... More

Good location. Room clean but lacked ambience. The view across the park to Arafura Sea was nice. Visited during the annual Greek Glenti Festival held directly across the road. Needless to say it was noisy until midnight. Seems the hotel was overbooked as people were trying to wear down the front receptionists for rooms. This created an unacceptable time for... More

Hello lizjak10 Thanks for writing and appreciate the feedback. The Greek Glenti weekend was certainly busy with lots of people trying to stack their rooms with as many guests as they could which as you highlighted kept the Reception team fairly busy with additional bedding request. My apologies for the check-in delay you experienced. With regards to Internet and as... More

I will start by saying that all the staff we had contact with were both friendly and helpful especially Gabriel on reception. Our room was large and had everything we needed. This hotel is in a great location for everything, except sleep. Maybe the street noise at the other end of the hotel is not as bad however the air... More
