Stayed here for a couple of nights in October 2014, was a really quiet place to relax and had a great central location. Having your own kitchen was quite handy too, the rooms were clean and tidy and the view over the ocean was really nice too. Would certainly recommend

We booked the hotel room with city view. It was spacious and the balcony was big. The location was good. Close to the marina, on the esplanade and lots of options for eating. There is a Woolworths just behind the hotel. We enjoyed our 4 night stay here.

Booked this as a Mystery Hotel so had no idea which hotel we would get. Was very pleased to see it was the Mantra Esplanade. We were given a 1 bedroom apartment over looking the pool. Everything you needed was in the apartment, nice lounge, TV, kitchen,washing machine and dryer. Large bedroom with a nice balcony overlooking the pool. Front... More

We booked a standard hotel room with a view. It had a balcony with a table and chairs, overlooking a side street. The room was a reasonable size (just right for 2 people), had a tv, fridge, ensuite bath/shower, toilet, air conditioning, cupboard with ironing board and a safe. It was good for the price - we got a special... More

Nice hotel. Nice balcony. Free Wi-Fi in the lobby and in the front of the hotel, but not always super strong. Comfortable room and bed, and nice pool. Location was perfect to access the pier and ask the bars and nightlife.

Crappy place. Never seen a hotel charging extra for cleaning the room. Most of the rooms are duel room which means you can hear next doors any actions (farting, burping, moaning) and changing regular room extra 40$ and another 30$ for room cleaning servis per day etc etc. F.cking cheap people

I recently spent two nights at the Mantra Esplanade in Cairns, and four a four star hotel couldn't really fault it. The location was brilliant, centre of town, walk to everything, the room was clean and tidy, if a little dated ( mainly the carpet ) and the view out over the lagoon was nice. Being on the Esplanade I... More

Dear April J, I'm truly sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at Mantra Esplanade. I apologise for any inconvenience you experienced with the electronic key system. We are not marketed as a full service hotel, and therefore items such as porters, daily servicing, and in-house restaurants have never been part of our offerings. This business model allows us to...

I am currently staying at the Mantra Esplanade in Cairns. So far; the staff have been very helpful and friendly, the location is perfect as it is in the centre of everything, plus the view from the balcony was awesome we could see the lagoon and the mountains. The cafe in the lobby is also really good, the food is... More

We stayed here from Mon 10th to Sat 15th November 2014 whilst visiting family in Oz. The room we had was excellent, a large comfy double bed in a separate bedroom, a sitting room with good size TV and a nice size kitchen area with everything you could need to prepare light meals. The added bonus here was in the... More

Dear S666JPR, Thank you for your kind words. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Mantra Esplanade. Having a washing machine and clothes dryer in the room is a very under rated facility. Especially when visiting a town with a climate like Cairns. Kind Regards Colin McIntosh General Manager More
