Ok hotel in a great location

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Dec 2023
Hotel is well located with Cairns lagoon directly across the street. Ample dining available on the esplanade, within 2mins of the hotel and for those staying in a self contained room Woolworths is just behind the hotel. Reception staff friendly, though the hotel doesn't have any real amenities to require reception 24hours but none the less they are there. Room was ok needs better lighting. Overall a pleasant 2 night stay in a great location

The location Is fantastic and the surroundings of the hotel like cafes, restaurants, pubs & clubs was awesome.
Also catching a ferry to neighboring islands was only minutes walking distance.
Great place to holiday.

Room tip: The pool and the gym facilities are fantastic.

Very friendly staff. Floor plan perfect for what we required. Large unit compared to others on the Esplanade. All amenties required for a short and long stay. Very close to all the shops, Casino, restaurants and Marina.

Unbelievable customer service during cyclone jasper. Everything from rooms, extended stay, ensuring we were happy. A very stressful time, they treated everyone with care and attention. Rooms were excellent.
Thank you so much

Fantastic Location straight across from the Esplanade Lagoon but be aware there is only 8 or so car parks for 100 rooms. Mantra's cost cutting means that you won't find a bottle of water in the room, complementary or otherwise.

Definitely get value for money and a massive balcony to look over the esplanade. In a perfect location smack bang in the middle of the Cairns CBD. Upon arrival to our room, the door was wide open, looked like the slow close mechanism had broken, pillows were terrible however bed is very comfy. There's no water or water jug in the fridge. Bring your own water bottle to fill up, BUT it needs to try fit into the little sink in the bathroom, not ideal at all.

Room tip: make sure to bring your own pillows and water
