My previous experiences with have been not so good . Room wasn't suitable for business stay and internet issues. My last trip was great , better room so was able to work and much improved internet

Dear Dianne, Thank you for taking the time to provide a feedback after your work stay at Mantra. We are pleased you had a good experience with us. I do recommend getting your company to book the 1 Bedroom apartment as it is much more suitable for business compared to hotel room. Kind Regards Leah Sullivan Front Office Manager

Very clean and located in a great spot.

we stayed 5 nights which cost $1000, their was no room services unless you stay 8 nights plus so if you need clean towels or anything for your room you had to go down to the lobby and ask for it, not happy with for the money i paid $250 per night you would expect room service. so i will not be staying with mantra again as i always stay with them when i am in town.

Lovely city location

rahulkapur_1983 12/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and were greeted with very good customer service. The one bedroom apartment we stayed in was clean, cutlery and crockery was in plastic wraps after being thoroughly cleaned, the location is excellent with two exit doors providing easy access and the building is charming. Really nice and helpful reception staff who did not hesitate providing additional toiletries etc when required plus the desk was 24/7. We will definitely stay here again.

Not as good as i expected

It was disappointing and I've learnt I must read the fine print. My partner suffers from bad sinus and with not having the room cleaned for 5 days the dust defiantly affected him making it an uncomfortable stay. In the fine print of the terms and conditions of staying at the Mantra it states they only clean the rooms if you stay longer than 7 days, but we did not know about this until we were checking in. The rooms felt dirty and dusty when we arrived, mould in bathroom and its needing a bit of a clean up. We thought that during this time with covid that places would be alot cleaner. It was never a hassle to ask the staff at the front desk for clean towels, more soap, milk or toilet paper but we are just use to them being freshened up at every other Accor hotel we have been too. For these reasons we won't be staying at Mantra's again. We were not offered our drinks on arrival being silver members. But the young man at the desk was lovely. The location of the hotel was great walking distance from everywhere we needed to go.

good central hotel with easy access parking

jlMostro Couples - 16/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

the hotel was great, clean, with a great view from the balcony. the staff was really accomodating and i really recommend this hotel for travellers who want direct access to Cairns Esplanade. I wasn't provided with my beverage vouchers as I should have because of my membership status but all in all a great stay.

Clean, modern comfortable apartment in a central location.

Boyd J 24/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

A very comfortable 5 night stay at a very reasonable tariff. We chose not to have our room serviced but fresh towels and more coffee, toiletries were readily available on request. We stayed in a modern, comfortable and clean apartment with a small kitchenette. The only disappointment was that the website advertises that it has a gym; it should also advise that it is currently closed due to health restrictions.

The hotel is across the road from the Esplanade with great easy walks along the waterfront and easy access to eateries and shops . Reception staff were very friendly, helpful and understanding. The only negative was lack of assistance with baggage.
