We stayed at the Mantra for 4 nights, we had room service breakfast on the second morning, the room service was over price and under delivered. The toast was just warm bread & the fruit salad was 5 chunks of fruit in a jar. Our leftover tray then sat in our room until check out. Our bed was half made... More

We were in what was called Short Stay Apartments though it was a normal hotel room and not an apartment. The room was comfortable, the breakfast was certainly adequate. We were there for a conference at the Conference Centre and a walk down to that in the humid heat was a bit torrid. Sometimes we resorted to taxis and other... More

My friend and I stayed at the Mantra Pandanas last week, and we had a superb stay. The staff were friendly and efficient and knowledgeable about the local area. The hotel's decor is modern but still welcoming, but the best part is that it is located centrally and most places are within walking distance of the hotel. Our room was... More

From the outset I want to advise that this was my first trip to Darwin, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was very obvious from check-in that the reception staff were not locals (maybe backpackers) as their local knowledge was severely lacking. When arriving at our room we noticed that the room was made up into queen bedding... More

The hotel is modern and located along Knuckey St. which is very accessible to the Smith Mall and pretty much walking distance to most visited places. It is not too far too from Darwin Convention Centre. I got the harbour view room at first (room 1723) and requested for a room with balcony and got transferred to 1421. Thank you... More
