We arrived and was made welcome, the $200 security was a bit of a suprise as we booked through an agent and this was not explained to us, limited us to what we could use. Husband enjoyed the fact that we could go anywhere without a car and was picked up for any other activites we had organised from the... More

Excellent Location, and room amenities fantastic! Very minimal noise and free parking below! Although you dont need a car as you are so central you can walk anywhere! Unfortunately though the rooms are not serviced! And there are no spare sheets or towels if you need them! and they wont give them out at reception without payment for house keeping!!... More

We enjoyed our stay in the one bedroom apartment. First night was a hotel room which we found very small but the helpful staff - Wendy - managed to move us to an apartment which was really lovely - spacious and well appointed with a great balcony. Liked the location right in the heart of town and although the pool... More

Mantra on the Inlet was conveniently located right in the main street so need for a car, but if you have a car there is underground parking. Noise was minimal. Reception area was quite small.

I quickly booked this hotel because it was on special. The location is quite good right next to the main street. The pool is a little boring (the Mantra further up the road is a thousand times better if you want to park yourself next to the pool for a couple days). Parking is free under the hotel but unfortunately... More

It was a last minute trip to Port Douglas booked through an agency so we had no idea what our options were. The hotel is in a great location for town shopping and beach access. The room was very small but nice, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and convenient restaurant, pool, bar, etc. I would look into other room options... More
