People very friendly but a disappointing experience. Its 4 plus rating should be no more than 3. Stayed 3 nights and on the first evening we reported that the toilet cistern did not refill!. During our stay this was reported daily and still not repaired: so we had to use the general toilet in reception on occasion! The restaurant had... More

I stayed at Mantra multiple times, I can tell Mantra on The Esplanade is the best hotel in Darwin. Very convenient and has a beautiful harbour view. Enjoyed the afternoon on the balcony with a glass of champagne while watching a sunset. I can add as well the staff are very friendly.

We have our coffee every single morning at Finz and get served by the best barista in town, Ash makes the most amazing coffee and gives the best customer service. Definitely worth a try for your morning coffee fix, no need to walk into town to find quality!

We stayed in one bedroom apartment for four nights with a great view over the harbour to watch the sunset each night. Housekeeping kept the apartment clean and neat. Having a kitchenette and laundry was very useful and was worth the extra. Almost home away from home.

We stayed here for several nights and really enjoyed the location however that was about it. Yes, the wet is always renovation time but after the third room, we pretty much gave up. Im sure in the dry, most of the rooms would have had a bit of a touch up but generally, the hotel is dated and worn and... More

We had a harbour view which gives a great view of the sunset. We got a great rate, including breakfast, so it was value for money for us. The apartments are quite spacious, though getting close to the time for an update.
