We live out rural and came in to town for the night of the 18th April for my daughters Year 12 Formal. I had booked a 3 bedroom apartment as there was 4 of us. We were on the 5th floor so had a wonderful view out to the ocean. It is expensive and I do wonder how people can... More

We have stayed in harbour view apartments at Mantra on the Esplanade numerous times over the past 12 years but a few years ago we noticed it was looking a little tired. However, I'm pleased to say that since our last visit a year ago, the refurbishment is largely complete and this property looks refreshed and inviting. The pool has... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found the hotel to be very favourable. The room was very clean, quiet, spacious and had a lovely view of the harbour. Its position was well located. Staff were friendly and most accommodating. We were very pleased with everything and would definitely stay here again.

We arrived for a week long stay. Upon arrival the staff where very friendly. The hotel is behind the main shopping precinct which was great & handy, though being a holiday Easter weekend most restaurants where closed. We where upgrade at a small charge ( this amount increased without explanation ).restaurant menu was not diverse. The view from 5th floor... More

We stayed here on two separate nights during our trip to Darwin. The first time we were upgraded to an apartment on the 8th floor at the front of the hotel overlooking the bay, so great views. There was lots of space, it was comfortable and clean and if needed there was a very good kitchenette with dishwasher. On our... More

Great value for what it is! Very pleased with our choice. Rooms are huge and very comfortable. Decor is neutral and pleasant. We were delighted to find that our base room had a view of the esplanade. Would highly recommend it for all types of trips.

Stay here fairly regularly and normally enjoy it but this time I found the staff somewhat lacking in their desire to help. Hard to put a finger on what it was but there was something. For example I often have a beer while waiting for my wife. The barman was talking to a waitress (about flights) he took my order... More

Hi MotelOwnerNSW Thanks for posting and apologies for the service deficiencies you highlighted. I've referred both incidents to the respective Department Managers for review and as you know from previous stays that's not our normal delivery. We have undertaken some recent hiring so will work to ensure that doesn't happen again. Appreciate you letting me know. We look forward to... More

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment - for 2 adults, 3 kids whilst it was lovely and clean was disappointed that it was on the ground floor with no actual real view. The private balcony was large but had no chairs or tables on it which was disappointing. Make sure when you book you ask for an apartment on a... More

Hi Fiona Thanks for sharing your stay experience. If I can provide some insight into the outdoor furniture situation - as we are still officially in Cyclone Season all of those items are in storage.
