3 night break
Pick this hotel as I had stayed on a previous business trip. No servicing of rooms unless you stay 8 days or longer. Great location, Courthouse pub behind(great meals),close to all shops, Casino, Cairns lagoon across the road. All in all, a pleasant short stay.

Hotel has potential
The hotel has lots of potential, the rooms are nice and comfortably in a great location, staff were awesome. Meanwile the bathroom setup was that of a back alley Southeast Asia shack. The shower and toilet were separated by a small curtain spanning half the area of the wildly spinning shower head turning the bathroom into a lagoon every wash. Oh and a room cleaning once in 3 days would be okay too, maybe that was in the small print though.

Good stay
Good stay at Mantra, property is well located and apartments are very spacious and well appointed. Only disappointment was Wi-Fi which was extra cost and really slow, otherwise a great stay.

6 Nights No room servicing! Yikes!!
Probably wouldn't stay again. Had to go to reception for loo paper once it had run out ( who doesn't put an extra roll in cupboard?!?). If it was super cheap I cld accept room not being serviced...but paying standard hotel rates really requires standard hotel services. On the upside, the gym is great ( but no free weights) The pool is ok and location perfect for a cld stay.
