Overall feeling of good customer service. Staff went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble for them. Room standard was good with the exception of the in- house tea coffee etc. there could have been more tea bags and a few biscuits would have been nice.

The location was great, it was easy walking distance to the restaurants and shops . The staff and service was excellent. We had a one bedroom unit which was quite well appointed and comfortable. The only improvement might be to update the dark furniture.

I was a return guest having enjoyed my stay there last year. The apartment was clean and facilities were adequate for our stay. Location is excellent particularly as I am travelling with children and prefer to have restaurants and amenities close by. My only complaint would be that I booked 2 apartments as i was travelling with family and our...

Very nice and clean hotel located right at the heart of Cairns Esplanade. Closed to some nice dining restaurants and Cairns Night Market.

Perfect location on the esplanade. Nice cosey room that was impeccably clean. Our balcony over looked the Main Street and was nice to watch the crowds do Zumba in the park but once inside you couldn't hear a thing. We enjoyed our stay at Mantra very much. Didn't get chance to use the pool but it looks amazing out there....

Perfect location to be in the hustle and bustle of it all. Staff were very lovely and friendly and anything we asked for they were happy to help. We were upgraded to a 1 bdrm apartment which was nice. Didnt like that rooms weren't cleaned during stay and not even a general tidy e.g. fresh towels, Empty bins etc. That...

Since we booked our flights with Expedia we were given a very good discount in accomodation and that is why the hotel was okay. If I had had to pay the full price I wouldn't have been happy because the hotel has no housekeeping service and when it has (after you leave) it cant be very good because my bathroom...

We arrived around noon and our room was not ready, actually... it took untill 4 before our room was ready. Didn't bother us though, hotel is really centrally located which is an absolute plus! We had a big room and knew it would not be serviced, fresh towels could be picked up from the reception every day. Only downside is...

Staff were helpful and friendly, the location is excellent. I'm not sure why hotel pools in Cairns aren't heated (this is the third one I've encountered). However, it was lovely sitting by the pool hearing the water cascading over the rocks.
