Spent a few days here. The hotel is conveniently placed to restaurants and the bay. Staff go out of their way to assist. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is looking old though. It needs a general renovation. Shower heads replaced. Lifts and foyer painted. Wifi upgraded to be in rooms. A small increase in charges to pay...

Great location, but the rooms are kind of self served! Room service has an extra charge and you need to charge the tea/coffee service yourself as well as the bathroom ans replacing the towels! They will be provided at the reception not on floors or at the door! No mini bar or even water is in the rooms.

The staff were very helpful and offered great advice on what to do, where to eat etc in Cairns. Older hotel but clean and well maintained. Enjoyed a nice meal at the restaurant with the family. I had a great steak made beautifully

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Mantra Esplanade on our Australia trip. Terrific location, downtown, across the road from the Esplanade and the Coral Sea, and handy to shops and restaurants. The room was o.k., nothing special, and the bed was comfortable. After walking around and exploring Cairns, we had a relaxing couple of hours by the pool....

We booked a one bedroom apartment with a sea view. The apartment was a good size and we saved money by using the kitchenette for breakfasts. The view over the lagoon was great and we were able to sit on the balcony watching the world go by when it was too hot to go out and about. The pool was...

Great location, in the heart of the restaurant & tourist area. The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We were upgraded to a self contained three room apartment, very well appointed and maintained. Travellers won't be disappointed.

Great location and great views. Despite having to be moved to a new room due to unidentified noise, the stay was great. The personnel was very helpful and kind. We would definitely repeat in Mantra hotels.

The staff member that was at the front desk during the day clearly did not want to be there. This put us off booking anything through the hotel which most likely cost them commission. Location was great and room was ok given the price.
