The staff were friendly and helpful and knowledgeable, location very good, excellent breakfast. If there had been a hotel guest launderette to use it would have been perfect.As Darwin has a tropical climate this would be an added bonus appreciated by guests.

Warm friendly greeting on check in. Close to restaurants, shops etc. Housekeeping were unobtrusive and did an excellant job. First stay (5 days) had harbour view room on level 7; room was well maintained and had an amazing view. Second stay (1 night) we were on level 3; obviously not as good a view and room was a little tired....

Clean and quiet facilities; lovely layout of hotel and friendly helpful staff. Breakfast buffet provided good LCHF options which was great. I have stayed elsewhere in Darwin and would definitely Mantra again for a short stay.

We found the Mantra to be very close to the central part of Darwin. Walking distance through the parks and to Mindil beach, the cafes, bars and shops are only minutes away. Harbour is within walking distance. Although the property is a little tired looking in some ways it appears to be well managed and the staff are quite nice...

place was in a great location, rooms were lovely, my room had the fan on throughout the night and no switch to turn it off - not a major issue, most importantly the staff service could do with some improving

Book a harbour view. The apartments are spacious and well appointed. The location is excellent. away from the noise of a city but easy to walk to the waterfront and downtown and enjoy all that Darwin has to offer.

Location very good as had room with harbour view, however rooms need an upgrade and bathrooms had mould in bath/shower Nowadays baths are not required as most people prefer a separate shower especially older people. We found it not value for money. Breakfast was adequate but average

Excellent venue with friendly staff, good food in a relaxed atmosphere. We would certainly stay here again. We particularly liked the location, on the esplanade yet so close to the city center, a bonus.

We booked a wheelchair accessible room. The room was everything we could have asked for. It was conveniently positioned on the ground floor and comfortably furnished with all amenities including a well equiped kitchen. The large bathroom made ablutions easy for my wheelchair bound husband. The hotel is in a great location just steps to Mitchell St and a short...

Great customer service, nice clean room and comfortable beds. I flew in at 12:30am so it was extremely helpful to have the 24hr receptionist. I will definitely be booking in here for my next trip. Great location to all the main pubs and restaurants.
