Adequate quality in good location excellent staff

Location, staff friendliness and the check out
I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and to be honest the standard has been dropping over the years. My first room on this occasion had a noisy air conditioner that was unbearable so had to move rooms. The staff are great and facilitated the move, but what about the maintenance schedule..why wasn't this tested prior to me check in? The pool area now needs a bit of renovation and the pool is closed ridiculously early for a hotel in the tropics. The hotel is tired now, however the hotel staff are really great.

A relaxing time

Position, excellent room and Breakfast!
The stay here was my third and the room was excellent and stayed five days but was very disappointed when I had to stay another night in Darwin the desk would not offer me the same rate and I had to pay another $70 so I left and went to another hotel.

Make sure you get a harbour View room.

The view of the Darwin Sunset, the central location, room service.
We had a lovely stay at the mantra Darwin. Make sure you book a harbour view room, the sunsets are amazing. The rooms had everything you need in them and are quite large. The only comment was the couch and carpet are getting rather worn now and could do with being replaced, also individual climate control would be great. Other than that the room was clean and well serviced. the room service was well priced and nice tasty meals.

One Night Stay

Position, Cleanliness and Staff$120
It was very good except for the fact that I asked about a late checkout and was told it would cost $20 per hour and we wanted to check out at 4.00pm as we had a late flight. So that would have cost us $120 for 6 hours which is nearly the cost of a 1 night stay. I offered to pay $50 but was told the company policy was strict and it was $20 per hour. Let me tell you my husband and I just sold our management rights in Airlie Beach and I would have never charged a guest that much if I had the occupancy (which I know they did as I asked). I would always give a late checkout where I could for free of charge. A little bit goes a long way. Your General Manager needs to remember that. I know you have your rules for all your hotels but customer service is paramount! It's what gets you the return business. Cheers
