A great setting, friendly and cooperative staff, good facilities. Great views on harbour side. The hotel was central to the CBD. I would have no hesitation in staying there again when I travel to Darwin again.

The only thing we had to report to staff was the air cond in main bedroom made a screeching noise but otherwise we found the apartment really good and clean. Staff were very pleasant and willing to help.

I recently stayed at the Mantra on the Esplanade - I found it to be such a great location, central to everything. Mitchell Street just behind and a quick walk into the Waterfront. Lovely helpful staff. that would do anything for you. Great room with a view! Rooms had all the essentials. The breakfast was plentiful. I would stay again!

Excellent hotel, stunning harbour view, lovely pool area, comfortable room, great position but no free wifi. Offered expensive plans so we did not sign up. Had an 8 night stay with no wifi. Quite ridiculous nowadays.
