Having suffered a back injury on the morning of our arrival for a 2 night stay, I was pleasantly suprised with the help you team gave in getting an on-call doctor to me ASAP (on a public holiday too) I'm very thankful for their help. The follow up from the hotel team to help out in any way was great...

Mantra on the Esplanade is close to everything you could possibly want on a holiday. The hotel staff are friendly and efficient and the hotel amenities are more than adequate to ensure a relaxing holiday.

Great location and rooms. The service was very bad this visit. Staff in the restaurant rude and did not care. There was no gluten free or diary free milk at all. Both of us have both allergies so very little we could eat. When we asked told there was nothing at all. First hotel in 10 years not to have...

This would have to be the best hotel in which we've stayed in years. From the moment we entered the building to the moment we left, we felt warmly welcomed and very relaxed. We loved everything about the hotel from the room with the view across the harbour, the shower, the suite and the breakfast. Can't wait to come back...

Close to everything you need, staff friendly and helpful, room clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again. Just walk out the front door to the park and shoreline and out the back door to reach Mitchell street. Walking distance to food and local attractions. Had a great stay.

Great location just a short walk to Mitchell Street. We were 4 older people staying for a couple of nights at the Mantra on the Esplanade and liked the size of the rooms - very spacious. Only problem was the lack of help with the bags to and from the rooms on arrival and departure.

We enjoyed just one night here but wished we'd have been here for our whole week in Darwin! The facilities in the rooms are excellent. Great wifi speed. Great staff. Breakfast was also great. There was a bit of noise from the backpackers next door but noise was restricted from a reasonable time

We had a day stay here just off a cruise and the hotel was very accommodating with an early check-in for us. The apartment room we had was spacious and very well appointed. We had a lovely swim in the pool and ate dinner at the restaurant - the food was great and the prices very reasonable. I'd definitely stay...

Pros - staff lovely, location great, bed comfy Cons - no free wifi, mini bar lacking, bar downstairs shuts too early, room walls too thin, could hear snoring from next door and elevator chimes Limited services over Easter weekend (understandable to a degree)

Thank you for a relaxing and comfortable stay at the Mantra. Beautiful view. Opportunity for excellent sunset photos. Chance to walk or ride along the parklands pathway - well situated near harbour. Friendly and accommodating staff.
