“Great Hotel - short or long stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

I stayed in this hotel and I must say I would highly recommend It for short term or long stay travellers.

The great things include:

1. Choice of room
2. I upgraded to a 19th floor unit with a great balcony, well equipped kitchen, large room, separate bedroom, huge bathroom with washing machine/dryer and uninterrupted views of the ocean - magnificent.
3. Friendly and helpful staff, arrived from the local markets on the beach at 11pm and the hotel bar was closed but the on site manager said no problem and served us drinks in the lobby.
4. As stones throw into the city and all local attractions.
5. Business facilities, I conducted business over the phone for half the day in the cafe with free wifi.
6. Room service, good dinning, mad excellent gym.

This is definitely the best hotel in Darwin that I have stayed in and one I will keep coming back to. I love hotels with helpfuL staff it just makes the trip all the better.

I would recommend you ask for a room with sea views, and my room on the 19th floor was perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea views, if you are staying longer ask for a small apartment.

I stayed at the Mantra Pandanas for one night in April for business. The hotel is apartment style; each apartment has a self contained kitchen. Mantra P is very centrally located. My apartment has a glimpse view of the harbour. My room is very spacious, with a fully equipped kitchen and a large balcony. The hotel staff are very friendly and efficient. I tried the breakfast the next morning. It had a nice spread of items, such as eggs, sausages, pastries etc. Overall, I was very satisfied with the hotel and am happy to recommend it to my friends

View was awesome. Room was quite nice. In the heart of darwin so close to shops and restaurants it is a lovely place to stay. Bathroom
was nice with a big shower. Bed was comfy. Downside was that our car couldn't fit in the underground parking and we had to park down the street.

I scored this hotel on a wotif last minute deal, so i had no idea what i was booking. I was not disappointed. I loved it so much i saw an offer with a similar price a week later, booked another night, and was happy that it ended up as the same hotel!!

The bedding is super comfortable. I slept like a baby.

The pool is only little, but its situated looking out the city on the 6th floor, and when i was there it was quiet so i really liked it.

The room service menu is simple, but i ordered twice off it and the food was very nice, it came to the room quickly, and it wasn't too expensive.

Towels were comfy, bath/shower in my room was clean, and a good size.

Only a short walk to the mall/centre of town, and a little bit further away from Mitchell St so was a very quiet hotel

I cant wait to stay there again.

We stayed here for 3nights in March. Our room was spacious with everything we needed. It had been newly refurbished with nice decor and a clean modern bathroom. We had a small balcony with views of the pool and Darwin city. It would have been nice to have had a table and chairs on the balcony. The swimming pool was lovely and very quiet during the day. There were plenty of sun lounges. Breakfast was good with lots of choice. The hotel is conveniently located to explore the city on foot, it is also close to the bus deport. We used the buses a lot. They were air conditioned, clean and cheap.

View was fabulous on the 14th floor. Not so good if a power cut...!
Staff were not only ill prepared, but totally useless. Restaurant is unispiring. Room well suited for the money. Managers could do with training, then work on the everything else!

Dear Maggie B,
Thanks for choosing to stay with us and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your room and the fabulous views. Thanks also for taking the time to comment on the power outage which occurred across Darwin back in March. Whilst it was disappointing to read your comments about our staff who worked tirelessly throughout the crisis, I am pleased to advise that all of our staff were very well prepared and followed the power outage procedures to the letter. Plenty of assistance and refreshments were provided to our guests and we received many thanks and letters of appreciation in recognition of our efforts. We conduct regular training sessions to deal with emergency situations and update our procedures accordingly. We hope that you change your viewpoint as we would be delighted to welcome you back to stay with us again.
Kind regards
Dave

Spent four nights over the Easter period. Stayed in an ocean view room on the 17th floor. The room was an excellent size with reasonably nice decor. Bathroom was very modern and clean. Staff were quite attentive and friendly. Yes, there were limted housekeeping services during the Easter break, however not a problem as this was clearly communicated and rooms were freshened up if you requested. Only a couple of minor negatives, the management should pay more attention to detail with the presentation of the hallway carpets and some of the furniture in the rooms, as there were quite a number of noticable stains.
