We stayed in the 2 bedroon apartment overlooking the Cairns Esplanade and pool area. A good sized apartment in a great location. Walking distance to everything. Very comfortable and well equipped but a bit dated

I stayed at the Mantra Esplanade for one night and the room was clean and comfortable, although a little dated. There is no room service but the esplanade is packed with options for eating so this was not a problem. The carpark is free and access is through the rear of the building. Overall a good place to stay especially... More

If you are looking for a budget hotel with nice standards in Cairns the Mantra is perfect. Very clean, spacious and comfortable rooms for a cheap price. The room are not cleaned everyday but that's fine. The position is perfect for a walk in the restaurant area, for the lagoon and the pier to go on the reef. They also... More

This was the 3rd time for us to stay in Mantra Esplanade and we will continue to stay here when visiting Cairns. We had a change our travel dates from Japan due to a family emergency but the staff were very accommodating and showed a lot of flexibility for us, with no extra cost. It's not luxury, but it is...

I stayed here a number of years ago when it was new and have since been returning every now and then and it continues to not disappoint. Whilst there are some curtains that look tired especially the privacy curtains that could do with a replacement everything else was very good. The room was very well maintained and clean. The bed...

Very central, easy to walk to everything on the esplanade.The pool is nice and the room was very comfortable. The staff were friendly, and I was able to be picked up from the hotel for a day trip. I got a special online and was super impressed for an affordable hotel!

The Mantra Esplanade is in a great location, overlooking the Esplanade and Ocean. Very convenient for restaurants and shops all within a couple mins walking. The marina is also only 5 mins walk away, where most of the reef and boat tours leave from. However, our 1 bed ocean front apartment on 6th floor was looking "tired". Carpet stains, marks... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment here and loved the location as its right in the middle of all the cafes,shops etc on the main esplanade. The swimming lagoon is directly opposite. Our room was dual key access which means you enter through a main door from which there are two more doors, one leading to a one bedroom... More
