We stayed 2 nights in June, arrived in the middle of the night, check in was very easy and quick. Nice clean rooms. Breakfast was included, very simple buffet style, staff not particularly friendly, on both days. Easy walk to centre of town, supermarket, restaurants, and down to the wave pool and wharf front. Not too far to walk yo... More

We have just got back last night from a fantastic stay here at the mantra the apartment and place is fantastic. The only down side is the fact that the pool isn't heated . The weather was so warm and nice but at one stage everyone was sitting around the pool but no one would go in.

The room was beautifully clean, modern and of a good size, with a comfortable king size bed. We booked with Wotif and got a three night special which included breakfast and parking which was just perfect. We had no complaints and would definitely stay again at the special rate! Great quiet position with an easy round the corner walk to... More

We booked a room at "Signatures on Knuckey" after being impressed with how it looked at the Stayz website. Little did we know that the "Signatures on Knuckey" hotel did not exist. All the photos of it, and the building shown on their website were of the Mantra Pandanas apartments in Knuckey Street in Darwin. This would not have been... More

Dear Cromer45, As you were unfortunately not a guest of Mantra Pandanas we have requested that Tripadvisor remove this review. Whilst most of the serviced apartments within the complex are managed by Mantra Pandanas, there are some which are managed by an independent operator with absolutely no affiliation to Mantra Pandanas and do not benefit from the Mantra product, services...

Our visit was in early June. Hotel was well positioned for access to main part of Darwin. Mini bus availability for transport to the markets was cheap and a regular service. Woolworths was a 5 minute walk. A good selection of restaurants was nearby. Our studio apartment on level 7 was more than comfortable with a kitchenette with everything required... More

Having been initially impressed by the look of the hotel, we quickly found issues. The ceiling fan was so noisy it couldn't be used at all and the sliding door was very difficult to close. Neither of these were major issues although not something you'd expect from a $240 p/n room. The real issue started at 11pm when we tried... More

After checking in and viewing my room, I asked for an upgrade to have access to a washing machine.

I've stayed here 3 times over the last month, for work and for play. It has a great location - in the CBD, but up the quiet end of a street so it is easy to escape the chaos of the clubs and pubs. The rooms are very spacious, and have good views. My only gripe was the showers. The... More
