Good Location
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Oct 2023
I did find the Mantra difficult to find as there is no signage. It was not until I got to the front door was I sure I was in the right place.
The staff were helpful and friendly.
The apartment was well appointed and included a washing machine, dishwasher and everything needed for a comfortable stay.
It is situated in a good location close to Mitchell Street and the Bi-Centennial Park.

Spacious and clean room but dated. The lack of an onsite restaurant was inconvenient. Great central location though.
The airconditioning cannot be adjusted for temperature, only for fan speed. So either it is on or off and it was cold at night so the only option is to turn it off.

Room tip: No daily housekeeping.

Very convenient location with shops, restaurants and bars a very short walk away and the sea literally across the street. Its a 20-25 minute walk down to the waterfront but there are lost of nice views along the way. We had a lovely suite with a balcony overlooking the water to see the Sunset. It was a great choice for our 4 night stay in Darwin after a 5 night tour.

Excellent location! Great facilities and hosting staff that go the extra mile!

We had a fantastic family holiday, we were there for the National Country Swimming Championships and it was a great hotel to stay at.

Great trip, great accommodation!

I would recommend to anyone interested in travelling to Darwin, stay at the Mantra Esplanade!

Great central location across road from gardens with views over harbour. Stayed in 1brm apartment with balcony and ocean view. Tired decor however comfortable and very clean. Poor wifi - good reception in lobby. No restaurant but surrounded by restaurants and Coles supermarket next door. Good pool. Pleasant and helpful staff. Reception closes at 11pm - hotel needs to be informed of anticipated later arrivals.
Have stayed before and would return if able.

Room tip: Poor wifi on upper floors. Notify hotel of anticipated arrivals after 11pm.
