This 1 bedroom apartment was exactly what we wanted. From the well equipped kitchen and bathroom to the perfect location we were extremely happy staying at the Mantra on the Esplanade. The staff were very welcoming and hospitable. Just unfortunate that during the Covid situation that the restaurant was closed. Thank you once again for having us. We will be back!

Stayed in 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apart.for 7 nights Main bathroom has shower over a bath so tricky to get into for less mobile people. Ensuite has walk in shower , apartment was light and spacious but little bit dated. We had accomm. overlooking The Esplanade, rooms at rear of property look over restaurants and bars so can be noisy.Staff were very helpful .Room was serviced every 3 days which was fine with us

Dear Gillian Thank you for your positive review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and our convenient location. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return.

Good stay BUT ......

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Jaybe Couples - 09/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our room was great however we were on the first floor and overlooked the pool of the next door back packers. No one bothered to warn us that on Sunday evenings (our first night's stay) the Youth Shack have a Saucy Sundays event that was extremely noisy and went very late. Even inside our room withe the doors closed and the tv turned up we struggled. Going to sleep before the party ended proved to be impossible. I know the property has no control over this but some warning would have been nice.

great spot for walking everywhere.

Overall was a nice apartment however bathroom floor leaked up through the tiles. The backpackers behind were at times amusing except for being woken up at 4.00 am a few mornings. We stayed here for 6 nights would recommend staying here.

Great location to CBD

One bedroom apartment excellent No gym, no bar ,no restaurant

Extremely Noisy on City Side

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Anonymous Couples - 04/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a waterview room for 3 nights which was lovely, even though the room was tired and in need of an update. We then had to move to a cityview room for 3nights ,as our room was booked. (even though we booked 3 months in advance). The music from the 2 backpacker hostels, directly opposite our room was so noisy and started at midday. We were woken up numerous times throughout the night and early hours of the morning. We couldn't wait to leave. You shouldn't have to put up with that for the money you pay, or at least be told of the potential noise.

Short Stay with the family before we started our holiday

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

great apartments with everything you could need for a short or long stays with the family i could not recommend this enough. staff were really great to deal with and very helpful so thank you- close to town and shops what ever you need it is all walking distance - there is also electric scooters out the front of the hotel allowing you access to all of the darwin CBD

Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for your valuable feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed the experience and we hope to welcome you again soon.

Disappointed and Expensive

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

danielbK2016AU 02/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

I am an Accor Member and where possible always stay at their hotels, as in most cases I am very happy with value and service but not this time! I booked this hotel in Darwin, and paid the premium price with Accor, above same quality hotels on booking.com which were cheaper. However, what a disappointment, after riding 4 hours on a motorbike we arrived at the hotel only to find, that there were no facilities available - No Bar - No Food - No Coffee - No Restaurant - No anything The drink vouchers were given to me and water and coke was in a tiny fridge on the reception desk. What I am most disappointed about wasn’t that the above wasn’t available, as I am aware of what COVID is doing to the industry, BUT at no point was this mentioned prior to the booking, which gave me the impression that I have just been taken advantage of. As mentioned, it wasn’t so much paying the inflated price, but not being told that these facilities were not available, they don’t even have anyone serving coffee in the morning let alone Breakfast. I will be back in Darwin in March with the team however I doubt very much that MANTRA Darwin will see me again! Please NOTE – The above isn’t a reflection on the staff, they were good

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. We're sorry you were unhappy - we'll work hard to fix the issues you experienced. Thanks for letting us know. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you for a much-improved stay in the near future.
