Top location in Darwin! Hotel has a great outlook & feel about it. Just needs a little TLC to bring it up to date & rooms are a little old & need updating. Rooms need air freshener as a musty smell greets you on entry. Unfortunately can not control air conditioning as it is centrally controlled by hotel & was...

Staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. We upgraded and were really satisfied with the choice. Great location to the Waterfront, bicentennial park and the Hop On Hop Off bus. Supermarkets were handy and a nice choice of eateries close to hotel.

Such a perfect location close to everything. My ocean view room was spacious, clean and so very comfortable. Your staff are your best asset- very knowledgeable and helpful. Every restaurant recommended was fabulous and so very helpful when asking about local attractions. The hotel's restaurant had an excellent breakfast special- which I think you should keep- and the food was...

We had been travelling for 6 weeks staying in 15 hotels in New Zealand and Australia. The Mantra proved to be a comfortable quiet hotel in a great area. Although our room faced the harbour the view was screen by large trees. Staff were extremely kind and helpful. The room was spacious and well appointed. The outside pool was partly...

We have stayed elsewhere in Darwin before but gave the Mantra on Esplanade a try this time and we will stay here on all future visits. We liked the excellent aircon, the spacious apartment-style room and the harbour view that we had, and the fact that it was so central and easy walking to all parts of the central city....

An exceptional place to stay when in Darwin. Posh, clean, roomy, serene environment right next to rowdy Mitchell Street. Get the one bedroom, you won't regret it. A great place to take a break. Nice pool, too!

We stayed at the Mantra and it was in a great part of the city accessible to all amenities. Especially all the restaurants, cafes, supermarket and tour buses. It is also a short walk to the waterfront precinct which is a must place to eat. The staff were each day a great help where required.

This is our second stay in a one bedroom apartment. Beautiful view of the harbour. Clean room with everything we needed. Great staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Well done Mantra! We were on the 7th floor which was perfect. Stayed 6 nights so the room was so important. Drinks on the balcony every night - great!
