“A good place to stay if you can handle the smell”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The Mantra is close to the pier and the restaurants. It has some nice amenities. But the smell of the hallways and some of the rooms is a turn off. The staff were nice and accommodating, including giving us extra dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. If they didn't have the smell, this place would rate higher.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms with a smell.

Stayed a week at the Mantra Trilogy, and found the venue to be very good. Rooms were spacious and clean, service friendly and efficient. Location of this venue is excellent, an easy walk to town, with a IGA and BWS shop 2 mins walk away. Lots of parking for guests vehicles. Pool good size,
Only negative was the lifts were either out of action, or breaking down, a pity to have a negative that should be easily controlled on such a great venue. Upon arrival had to carry our bags up flights of stairs!!

Room Tip: Had room overlooking pool, this is a must as rooms facing the street are affected by the bats in the...

Highlights -
1. hotel room is small and very close to neighbours
2. Clean and tidy room
3. comfortable air-con
4. sea view and pool view at my room
5. very good and clean pool
6. easy access to lagoon and everythings
7. staff were very friendly and polite
8. only 1 lift was available, very slow

The most important is i only paid $220 for 3-night stay, so I think it is very good value for that price!!!

We stayed a week in what turned out to be a very small hotel room in Tower 2 at the Mantra Trilogy Cairns. The walls were thin and we could hear everything the neighbours were saying clearly! The king bed turned out to be 2 singles pushed together! The price was on the steep side for what we got. There was no daily fresh linen or cleaning which for the price was unexpected. The room was in need of some updating eg. old small TV, old decor and needed general mainentance. BUT the location was great and the views of both the forest and the sea was nice!
