The Mantra Pandanas is located in a great spot, close to everything but far enough off the main strip to avoid the nightlife noise. The rooms are very comfortable, modern and well appointed. Excellent and friendly staff, which is pretty common for Darwin. Breakfast in the cafe downstairs was pretty good too. Definitely on the list when I stay in... More

We have stayed at Mantra Pandanas a number of times now and continue to return as they are always very accommodating of young families, nothing is ever too much trouble, and the staff are always very friendly. Great value for money with extremely clean and welcoming rooms with all the creature comforts.

Loved the quick check in when a few of us all rocked up together on the night. Rooms are big and bathrooms even bigger than most. Bed was comfortable and firm. Good location for both the business and holiday person. Like that you can open the door for frsh air on the Balcony in room 1014. Quiet room but a... More

Convenient location, a short walk from restaurants in town. Room was comfortable and spacious, although there was no furniture or seating on the balcony. The bathroom was a good size, but has an awkward step up to enter. The rainhead shower is very nice too. Lighting in the bathroom was insufficient, particularly when doing hair and makeup. Breakfast buffet was... More

Hi Doffeeroo, Thank you for your positve comments and we're pleased that you enjoyed our convenient location and spacious facilities. We are just completing the re-installation of the balcony furniture following the cyclone season (we usually remove it early December and replace during May). Thanks for mentioning that you will stay again and we look forward to seeing you soon.... More

The hotel is centrally situated. The room I had was big, with a double bed and had a comfortable nights sleep. Like many hotels its difficult to set the air conditioner properly. I had no issues with the hotel. I would stay here again.

Neat and clean. Great food and drink. Love having the coffee shop right there. Plenty of amenities for the business traveler, especially if business is in the CBD. Easy walk to the esplanade. Staff are always great. The bathrooms are something to behold, for sure.

Stayed here on business. Have stayed here previously. It's a walk to anywhere in town. While the hotel restaurant is convenient, breakfast isn't cheap ($20 for continental). Convenient to Woolworths and apart from the hotel restaurant downstairs there is another cafe tenant in the building and others to choose from nearby. Room had a kitchenette, two ceiling fans, a portable... More

Stayed last year and to be honest not overly impressed. Shower was nice but water goes out over half the floor, pool is in the shade for most of the day so not very welcoming and rooms are looking a little tired. On the plus side the staff were great and room service meal arrived hot and was very nice
