Lovely Hotel in a great location, walking distance to restaurants and bars in Mitchell Street. Staff very friendly and helpful, only disappointing thing was no table and chairs on the balcony but this could have been because it was wet season, would have been nice to sit out on the balcony at night enjoying a drink.

This is a favourite hotel of ours, we have stayed here for many years because of the locality, views and beautiful sunsets. It would be good if the Mantra could offer Territorian rates all year round, especially for businesses. Still a great place to stay. I do recommend it to my customers when coming to Darwin.

This nice hotel is located right on the Esplanade, which makes for lovely morning or evening walks in Darwin. It's also only 1/2 block from the action area on Mitchell Street, so you're close to the exciting night life of Darwin, although our room was quiet and peaceful. The CBD is compact, so we easily walked to all of the...

Stayed here for 3 nights during the dry season in July. The rooms are very nice and the staff is friendly. Prices were a bit high but that is to be expected during that time of the year! Would stay there again.

Everything was lovely The room was great but we were very disappointed with the breakfast Toast took too long to cook, hash browns were cold & soggy, bacon overdone, but the scrambled eggs were nice. The danish taste stale

We stayed and had zero hassles the entire stay. Staff were able to help with any questions and provide advice and the location is excellent with Mitchell Street in one direction and the park overlooking the waterfront in the other.

I suggest each guest checking in who has a car get's issues with with a label for the dash board enabling them to park at the front of the property. all vehicles that are caught parking without a resident label should be moved on or fines/clamped.

Treated like a criminal for payment.Having explained to upon check in my wages go in the next day for extension off stay, I was hounded for payment and locked out of my room, thus forcing me to settle the bill and seek alternative accommodation. As of 6 pm my wages were in my bank.
