Spent a couple of days in Cairns, great apartment, fantastic views. My only criticism was the airconditioner thermostat was very noisy when it turned on and off - a big bang. Would stay there again. Excellent customer service.

It is the perfect mix of away from the noise of the esplanade of Cairns - but close enough to be near everything. The 1 bedroom apartment was perfect for us - spacious and well equipped and the balcony was excellent. The parking is first in best dressed and a bit crazy one the weekends. The hotel entrance in on the back street - even thought the address is the esplanade. Overall excellent experience.

Room Tip: I had a front room looking directly over the ocean. Many of the rooms are angled to look over the p...

We found this hotel very good for our short stay in Cairns. Reception staff were unfailingly polite and helpful and special mention should be made of Rupert and Denis who both went "that extra mile" to make sure that our stay was pleasant and comfortable.
Our room was clean and spacious and we had no issues with asking for extra supplies, towels etc. as rooms are not serviced daily. The location is great - right on the Esplanade and if you want absolute quiet, ask for a high room.
Good value for money and pleasant, helpful staff. Recommended.

Room Tip: High and in tower 1 for view, quiet and access

This unit was spacious and clean with a separate bedroom and good sized balcony with partial view of the Strand. Lovely for entertaining friends for pre-dinner drinks prior to a special birthday! The staff were extremely helpful and security was very good (need card to enter lifts etc). The only quibbles I have are the wifi charges ($12 for 2 hours, which we used as had trouble with our own portable wifi device). At least the two hour block was non-continuous, so could use 10 mins here, 10 mins there etc. The 24 hour wifi was around $25 but seemed to be in a continuous block. No use to you if you are out in the day! Wifi should be readily available everywhere these days!! The only other criticism was the foul smell from the rubbish bins in the carpark. Even one of the staff members commented "yes you can cut through to The Strand that way, but it's not very nice because of the smell". She was right, it was not a nice smell parking there, or walking through. Nevertheless, the unit was great, bed was comfortable, unit had dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and full-sized fridge. Fantastic value if you can get a 'special' as we did! Would stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for view of The Strand/Sea!

If you are looking for a great experience when on business or on holiday with the family you can't go past the Mantra Trilogy.

We spent 4 nights here in late March 2014 as part of a Make A Wish trip for our son (who is doing very well). We had a good size two bedroom apartment with a large sitting area/living room, small kitchen and clothes washer/dryer. The Hotel was close by some huge trees with hundreds of screeching bats but we could not hear them in our room. The rooms were clean. The lobby was nice and always manned by a helpful, cheerful employee. We were only a block or two from the Esplanade so we were close to the Lagoon, Marina and loads of restaurants and shops. The pool was nice, with a unique shape though the water was a little cool. We had a very nice experience staying there.

Room Tip: Our elevator did not move once and I made the mistake of hitting the alarm which was a constant scre...
