We arrived in Darwin (our first visit there) without a hotel pre-booked so we could get a feel for the city and choose a place in a good location with great views and not too noisy. It was nearly our undoing as some hotels were fully booked or had really high tariffs for the rooms they had left.
When we walked into the Mantra to enquire we thought it would be ultra pricey but were very impressed with the front office manager, Saqib Memon who spent a lot of time organising a one bedroomed apartment for us with an adjoining room for our adult son who was travelling with us, and with a great value for money rate. It more than ticked all the boxes, great view over the esplanade to the sea, clean, well equipped, quiet, a roomy balcony and fantastic location. There was also a really good swimming pool.
During our five night stay the staff were always very polite and helpful.
Thanks Saqib, for a memorable stay.
The thing to be aware of though there is limited uncovered free parking, heaps of covered parking but comes at a price of (from memory) $15.00 / night.
