Good facilities incl car parking and easy walk to restaurants and shops. Guest elevators in need of a refurbish and and ice machine with wine buckets available for guests would be better than having... More

Great location with very friendly staff. Rooms where comfortable and clean. Didn't really get a chance to use facilities but hotel was neat and tidy. Would certainly recommend the Mantra for value for money and location.

Good facilities in a good location. A very pleasant stay. Staff were very accommodating and easy to deal with. The gym and pool facilities were good, but some gym equipment did require a little maintenance.

Excellent location in Cairns. Facilities are adequate -pool, gym are available. The apartments enable you to cook yourself which is a bonus. The only downside is that regular cleaning of room is only available at an added charge. This is disappointing..

Best location - easy walk to everything, right across from the fabulous lagoon pool and esplanade walkway. Easy walk to marina and activities. Courthouse hotel literally at the back door - nice pub with nice food and local music (but does not cause any issues with the hotel rooms - ie no noise etc.). We had a kitchen in our... More

Overall fantastic. Room was starting to look a little tired with marked walls & doors. Bed was great and very comfy. Location is perfect for those that want to be in the middle of it all and my view was terrific over looking to lagoon. Staff were nice and friendly. Good easy car park too. Biggest annoyance was the violent... More

We had to manage with a small bar fridge for the first 6 days during our 21 days stay at Mantra Cairns esplanade. We had rented 3 bedroom apartment and with family of 5, this fridge was way too small. Lots of maintenance issues and couple of them weren't fixed until we left after 21 days. Complimentary housekeeping every 5... More

Stayed up here whilst on a short holiday out scuba diving. It's a great place, with a beautiful pool (not heated, and a cosy little covered spa (also not heated). It backs onto a bar that turns into a bit of a happening place at night, and can sometimes be a bit loud, but to be honest, we didn't notice... More

“Don't bother paying extra for a beach facing room, the beaches have been ruined by sand dredging, it's better to look out towards the hills.”
