Very pleasant stay with friends. The three-bedroom apartment was ideal for us. It was very spacious and had a lovely view of the harbour and park and was very well equipped. The staff (except on our arrival) were all very friendly and helpful.

Excellent location. We had a one bedroom apartment with amazing views of the harbour. The Mantra is centrally located with easy access to public transport, the city centre and waterfront. Would highly recommend

We loved the positioning on the esplanade with the reserve and jogging track straight in front. Beautiful sunsets. Loved having a balcony with water view. Walking distance to bars, restaurants and cafes - and the wonderful waterfront precinct. Great covered hotel pool - kids loved it.

Excellent facility with friendly and helpful staff. Amenities within the hotel together with a large and well serviced room allowed a relaxing and stress free holiday. We arrived at 12.30am with staff welcoming and accommodating to our needs and requests.

Overall the stay was excellent. We enjoyed the views, the environment and the food. We also enjoyed the swimming pool. A very good place to stay and enjoy the best of Darwin as the location opposite the harbour was fabulous. We had an apartment with a balcony and spent a lot of time on the balcony. Our second stay was... More

We had a great one room apartment looking to the city. Blown away by the comfort and size. We didn't really want to go out as it would have been great just to stay there, use the bar and the pool for a break away. Nice friendly staff too.

The Mantra on the Esplanade is a neat and clean hotel, in a great location near the Darwin CBD. Very friendly reception staff and the apartment style room was very useful. I enjoyed my time in Dawrin and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

rooms need a refurbishment. old and tired. beds are awful to sleep in. the mirrors in the bathroom in room 223 and 225 need to be replaced. the floor in the kitchenette of room 225 is coming away and is a hazard- this should be repaired immediately to ward off any liability claims.

Hi annettet382 Thanks for the feedback on he kitchen floor that has been passed to Maintenance this morning for immediate review. I was also interested in your bed comfort comment we've only just replaced our entire mattress stock with a leading Australian manufacturer - I was hoping they'd be more comfortable! Thanks again for writing and we look forward to... More

Excellent hotel in good position in Darwin. Pleasant pool and helpful staff. The entry level rooms do not have balconies or openable windows so in August this is a great pity. A good place to base yourself in Daerwin.
