Staff at the front desk were very helpful and generous with their time. Great location for seeing Cairns on foot. Esplanade market was lovely. Still some handmade items, not just imports. Pool was nice, surrounds were quiet. Overall a very good experience. 😃

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was comfortable and central to everything. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel however is a bit outdated and could do with a makeover. We had 2 rooms next to each other which was a good option for a family of 4.

Unfortunately our room smelled very mouldy and we had to open the doors to help. Staff were helpful and friendly. Overall I think too expensive for what we got. One good thing is the location, very convenient.

Nice rooms, with good views. Great location. Handy having free parking right in the city. Didn't try the pool but it looked nice. Nice and quite with the balcony door closed. Staff very friendly Water pressure is a bit of an issue - showers not all that satisfying. No wifi in rooms.

It is in a great location central to everything, the staff on the front desk were very helpful and friendly. The general cleanliness of our room was a big let down the crockery, cutlery and glassware were dirty, we washed everything before we used it. The bathroom floor had hair on it. Also paying for a double room we should...

The Mantra is a perfect location for the lagoon and reef terminal and suited our needs. We were upgraded to an apartment which was great and had all the facilities needed. We made use of the gym and pool side BBQ both were great. Shame about the wifi but it wasn't needed for our stay.

Overall feeling of good customer service. Staff went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble for them. Room standard was good with the exception of the in- house tea coffee etc. there could have been more tea bags and a few biscuits would have been nice.

The location was great, it was easy walking distance to the restaurants and shops . The staff and service was excellent. We had a one bedroom unit which was quite well appointed and comfortable. The only improvement might be to update the dark furniture.

I was a return guest having enjoyed my stay there last year. The apartment was clean and facilities were adequate for our stay. Location is excellent particularly as I am travelling with children and prefer to have restaurants and amenities close by. My only complaint would be that I booked 2 apartments as i was travelling with family and our...
