have stayed here before and would always come back, very central, extra friendly staff, just ideal for a week or so. with the hotel behind and supermarket behind that, we had the best of both worlds in a self contained apartment.

We spent 5 nights here in apartment style accommodation and would certainly return. 3 of us had a 2 room dual key situation which was ideal. While the rooms are in need of updating, they're clean, the beds are comfortable and anything we needed was available. Staff at reception were great and nothing was a problem to them. The location...

The hotel is well situated and very accessible to shops and galleries. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The staff were very helpful and tended to any of our requests. I would definitely stay there again if I am in Cairns.

good location ..... nice rooms and in room facilities ..... would be nice if there was in-room dining that you could charge to your room account ..... and free Wi-Fi is available just about everywhere else in Cairns (and around Australia in decent hotels) and should be available at the Mantra Esplanade for the price

Fabulous location and clean and comfortable rooms. Only a few minutes walk to the Lagoon, Reef terminal, shops and restaurants. The only complaint I have of the Mantra is that wi-fi is not free and even when we paid extra, the wi-fi connection was not very reliable and covered only three devices, even though we were a family of five....
