“Beautiful good value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Gorgeous apartment room, really attractively furnished and good amenities - cooker, washing machine, balcony, spa bath. Great location and friendly staff. The pool is quite small so not recommended if that is a main focus of the trip, but we didn't actually use it.

Love the apartment and location makes it easy to get around and enjoy the night markets and nightlife in general. The only downside is the pool is small and the wi fi is very expensive. Staff are reliable and great to help organise tours to the reef.

We booked this online and except for an awkward moment when a staff member phoned and tried to get us to pay more than the internet deal the experience was blissful - a perfect location for a quick trip to Port Douglas, convenient for the pier for the sunset cruise - handy for the shops, restaurants and bars, no need for shuttle buses or finding a parking space.
The room had a separate lounge and dining area and a small kitchenette with microwave, washing machine, large fridge, fully equipped kitchen for making breakfast or light meals - which we didn't need for one night - but perfect if staying longer. Good air-conditioning, or the choice of opening the fold back doors onto the balcony to enjoy a glass of wine or three under the fan...
Would recommend for everyone except those on a new romantic venture as the en-suite bathroom does not have a door and only wooden shutters between it and a large window above the spa bath into the bedroom - so no privacy in this area....blush!
All in all, with the online last minute deal a very enjoyable stay!

We stayed at the Mantra on the Inlet during the week. The room was well appointed; I found it worked well for us. The tiny kitchenette was great for breakfasts and the balcony proved to be a great place to chill out. I liked the louvered doors to the balcony and to the bedroom, the room was dark at night. I've read other reviews and am surprised by the comments about the noise. We didn't experience any problems, but we were there Monday through Friday.

The Mantra is on the main street, within easy walking distance of the water, restaurants and the many opportunities at the marina. We will definitely stay there again.

We absolutely loved our 7 night stay at On The Inlet! We were in a park (inlet) view room with a massive wrap-around balcony which was perfect for relaxing on and watching the boats come in as the sun went down. The room was surprisingly large for a 1 bedder and we loved the way all the doors folded back to make a huge indoor/outdoor space. The only downsides were the scuffed/dirty floor and the amount of noise from the pub, but these things are easily outweighed by the positives.

We didn't see any kids at all during our stay which makes this place ideal for couples. The pool is small, but quaint, and he BBQ is excellent. The receptionist, Wendy was very down to earth and helpful.

Nothing but great memories of this place and will definitely be going back!

Oh p.s we also loved the 2 LCD TVs!

These apartments are perfect for a week long holiday in Port Douglas. We stayed in room 221, which was the apartment furthest from the bars and pubs. We had a beautiful balcony that we sat at during breakfast, we particularly enjoyed the outdoor fan located above the balcony. The room was spacious and enjoyable to come back to after a long day out. The apartments are in a great spot, we never had to walk far to get anywhere in the town. The only downside was that the room wasn't serviced due to our stay being 6 nights instead of 7 nights. Will definitely be returning.
