          Great location, nice staff and big rooms.

          Room rates can be too high

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          I loved the view and the fact that I could smoke on my balcony! I loved the bed - very comfortable. Breakfast at the Wink cafe downstairs was yummy and extremely reasonably priced. Great location.

          Longlife milk.

          I was particularly pleased with the location of the hotel and the fact that our two bdrm apartment had separate entrances and key cards as we were traveliing with our young adult daughter. It was a real bonus for her to have nearness, yet independence. Loction, though, cannot be beaten; near the lagoon, wharfs/piers, shops and the many fascinating restaurants/ cafes on The Esplanade.

          I did not appreciate being given a bill when I arrived for an account which was pre-paid. This was stressful and I needed to ring my bank for confirmation that I owed nothing. (The bill they gave me also gave me a free night, whilst the amount deducted from my bank by Booked.net did not, even though I was told I would pay "4 nights for the price of 3". I paid about an extra $246. The hotel's manager quickly sorted the mess (not the $246, that was never resolved) and apologised for the "mix up".

          The room overall was very nice and modern and spacious. Excellent location with pubs, restaurants, travel agents all close by. Beautiful ocean view room. I appreciated the sauna facility which I only used once - but it is good to have those extras in a hotel. I was offered a late check out of $50/hour after 12 pm - which I thought was extremely expensive. Overall great location if you don't plan to stay in the room the entire holiday period.

          Mantra in general has been excellent whenever I have stayed at their regional and city based hotels in NSW. But I was quite dissapointed with the Cairns Mantra Esplanade. I was dissapointed that even though it goes as a hotel - you have to pay $25 for your room to be serviced/cleaned on a daily basis. We had to pay $1/each extra for fresh towels etc and there was a price tag on everything. If it is a hotel chain (as opposed to their self serviced apartments) then it should provide cleaning services like normal hotels. Bathrooms were a bit ancient.

          Even if you have paid before arrival at hotel they will take/hold $100 from your credit card. You would expect the funds back on check out. I have still been waiting a week after checkout for the funds back. I am on a budget as travelling around australia is costly. However I am now short $100 which could be a days worth of food. The Mantra has very much inconvenient me on my holiday. Dont except to contact the hotel either they dont answer and make you leave a message, which you dont get a respond back on the day or longer.

          5.0

          the service was somewhat lacking. No matter what we needed the first response was" it is not included and will cost $X". For the price and so called rating we found it very expensive with no ordinary service included ie: towels, bedding, maid service, phone, internet, etc. No consideration for late check out caused us to set in lobby for a coule of hours waiting for out shulttle..

          Good service,room well appointed

          Door on cupboard needed to be repaired. House staff should be reporting this as has to be opeened to resupply tea coffee etc

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location was perfect, the hotel staff were very helpful and the room was well equipped and very comfotable.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          It was close to the city and shops, made getting around quiet easy.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          the swimming pool is certainly the highlight and its location

          the rooms were strangely set up (2bed room - to get to the second room you needed to use your key everytime), fairly standard room but nothing special, and only enough couch space for 2 people

        • Single
          7.8

          Rooms are large. Beds are comfortable.

          During a weekend stay (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays) there is a lot of noise from outdoors music groups playing at a hotel next door, in the afternoons and evenings, which made it impossible to relax in the room at either of these times.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The location was great, room was clean, comfortable bed

          shower stall needs work-water gets everywhere

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The view and the location in the central CBD.

          Rooms were too small.

          I had more valued experience at Mantra Esplanade than I expected from impression I had from looking at your website.
