Mantra Esplanade Cairns
Ranked #10 of 64 Hotels in Cairns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2011

My fiancee and I and 2 other couples stayed here for 2 nights. I picked this hotel for its price and location. We got 'local' discount for living in Townsville and it was close to the birthday party we were attending located in the city. We were all very happy with the rooms, they even managed to get all 3 room next to each othe with adjoining courtyards/verandahs. we were dissapointed with the TV's in the rooms, they were very old and small. the one in the bedroom was onlty 30cm across on the diagonal, everything else was fine.

Room Tip: we were on the third floor facing the ocean however, we only had a view of the trees

beautiful hotel in a great location. comfortable room with ocean view. just a couple minutes walk from the night markets (only australiana souvenirs), local restaurants on the same road and a couple minutes walk to the Marina with more restaurants. the public lagoon on the opposite side of the road looks amazing. 5 minutes walk to the local shopping centre. highly recommend.

Room Tip: ask for ocean view.

We were impressed when we pulled up outside, the lobby is very nice. We booked a double room, the room was very spacious, clean and had a balcony that looked onto the street and you can see the lagoon.

The hotel itself is right on the Esplanade in Cairns and across from the lagoon. Which is nice to go swim in, it is right next to many restaurants, bars and shops.

Really helpful staff Matt helped us a lot on reception and couldn't do enough for us.

The only thing that could be updated is the TVs they are a bit old. Apart from that I would highly recommend this hotel, if I came back to cairns I would stay here without a doubt.

I do not usually write reviews, but I was very impressed with this place so I thought I would.

I did a big trip staying at a lot of places and really liked this one. This was actually the cheapest hotel (not hideously overpriced as some Australian hotels I found)I stayed in and the best.

Staff VERY helpful and organised my day trip pickups with no issues before advising places to see buses to take and where to catch them.

Hotel has a spacious reception which is glass and smart. The rooms are quite large and I was lucky to get a great view across the Esplanade.

The pool is compact but very nice, the gym is nice and spacious and free towels provided.

Hotel is located perfectly only a couple of mins walk to the reef terminal for your trips out. Also the night market is only a couple of doors down for souvenirs and food, and a McD's if close too for more reasonably priced and early doors breakfasts which I found useful.

I did not try restaurant which looked quite upmarket but it did smell good.

Generally a very relaxed and nice place which I thoroughly enjoyed staying at.
