From the start our stay at the Mantra was awful. Everything about it is cheap and nasty. We stayed for 4 days and the same dead lizard was on the step on the way in the whole time. We did not spot a single cleaner or staff member the whole time we were there. There was some dirty linen propping... More

We booked here as was very reasonable rate for a overnight stay on our trip to Cooktown. We had a studio room which was small but very functional for a one night. The location of this hotel was great, right in the hub of the town, very secure and not noisy. The only downside was trying to find the entrance.... More

Great venue with amazing food. Staff were very accommodating when we ran late for our booking and nothing was too much trouble. They even have a 250kg groper that visits every night between 5-5:30pm to be fed. Would highly recommend to all

We recently stayed at this Hotel overnight in Port Douglas. Its central location makes it easy to walk to Restaurants and Attractions in the area. We had a one bedroom unit, as we were given an upgrade from the room we booked. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and had a huge wrap around veranda style balcony. The range... More

Was very impressed with our stay. The location is fantastic, right above the Main Street and also across the road from the park right on the ocean, where you can relax and watch the sunset. Very central and a short walk to everything. The room was very stations, well priced and had everything you need. Would definitely recommend and would... More

Mantra on the Inlet Port Douglas is ideally situated for those wanting to be in the heart of Port Douglas and amongst the action, although there are certainly some downfalls to this hotel: We found the check in process to be unfriendly, unwelcoming and very uninformative. We received no directions to our room and there is no elevator, so if... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment which is actually a1 bedroom suite with an 'adjoining' hotel room. While the suite was spacious, the hotel room was cramped We visited with our adult children - so we wanted to stay in the suite and the kids in the hotel room. Only problem was that the hotel room only... More
