Great rooms, staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms could do with double glazing on the doors and windows. On a work trip having to be up at 5am every morning so an early night was quite important however the noise from the other establishments nearby made sleep early very hard. Not just from music but voices as well.

Central location with great views. We had a lounge, bedroom and bathroom with washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Home from home, with a Coles about 20 meters away! We had a couple of maintenance issues during our stay which were dealt with really quickly by a very professional maintenance man. Thanks to the team for another great stay.

My partner and I have stayed there twice now. On my 1st trip the room was modern and perfectly clean. Lovely place to stay. What topped it off for me was the beautiful service. The front of house people were quick, friendly and efficient. I had need to ring the Manager as I couldn't lock the balcony door. He arrived... More

Had another enjoyable stay as always, but still they charge extra to use in room wifi :( As a business traveler WiFi is vital and i begrudge paying exorbitant fees for short term accounts. Apart from this minor issue the hotel is well located, clean, friendly staff and meets all needs

We had a one bedroom unit on the 5th floor , it was very spacious,comfortable and tastefully furnished with everything we needed. Also we were right in Darwin central surrounded by restaurants and shops , and great walking tracks along the Esplanade. The bar and Spa were also great, especially after driving from Jabiru.

We recently came to Darwin as a family to attend my sons wedding. I booked all the accommodation for everyone and only managed to fit my partner & I into The Esplanade so the rest of the family had to stay at Mantra Pandanas. Well I copped the booby prize big time. The Esplanade was such a disappointment from the... More

I recently stayed in the one bedroom apartment and loved the spacious and modern room, but noticed the bathrooms are very old, with the drains rusted and exposed. The breakfast was very nice and offered a wide variety of food. The location is ideal for heading out to eat or to take a walk along the esplanade.

Hi Jessica Q Thanks for posting and I totally agree - we've achieved a range of upgrades over the last few years including lounge furniture upgrades and new beds earlier this year but we do have "vintage" terracotta bathrooms .... who ever thought orange tiles were a good idea!! They are on the list but won't happen for 12 months... More

The Mantra is well located near the main esplanade, the various cafes and restaurants, shopping and travel agents. At the back of the hotel is the main collection point for many of the tours to nearby tourist locations. The Hotel overlooks the Darwin Harbour and only a ten minute walk to the Waterfront.

Good location, good room sizes and friendly staff. Within walking distance to restaurants. Lovely pool area that is near overcrowded. The restaurant at the property is nice and welcoming with a relatively varied menu. Good property for a corporate traveller.
