Staff were always polite and professional. After initially being placed in a room next to the lifts and overlooking the noisy backpackers we were shifted to a much quieter room the next day. Layout of the 1 bed apartment rooms were excellent. Thanks for being so accommodating

Room nice and clean. Poor cot provided for a baby. Staff not overly helpful. Told breakfast was included, then on checkout told we had to pay for it. Great location and good swimming pool. Would recommend

My husband and I stayed at Mantra on the Esplanade in Darwin before and after an NT camping trip. The rooms were quiet, cool, private and a good size. The bathrooms are particularly large and there is plenty of robe and surface space. Being upgraded for a harbour view was delightful. Breakfasts were generous and tasty - everything you could...

Would definitely consider returning to this motel again at a later date as a facilities were great, fantastic staff and it was close to the Esplanade where we enjoyed a picnic and a bike ride each day.

I'm a regular guest at the Mantra, where staff are always polite, friendly, calm and accommodating. My room was spacious and light. The bed and couch were super comfortable. I have only wonderful things to report!

We were delighted to be upgraded to a west facing apartment, looking over the esplanade to the sea and sunsets. The room was excellent, the service friendly and efficient. The plenty of choice at breakfast, from cereals and fruit to full fried breakfast and all was generally well cooked and red illy available.
