      Prime location but tired and dirty rooms”
      Location is wonderful but the rooms are dirty especially towels and cups. There were red stains on towels - freaked me out. Towels are so dirty that i need to clean all of them and pillow case before I can use them. Completely overpriced. I read from reviews saying that Mantra hotels are generally dirty and this experience made me not wanting to ever stay in any Mantra again.

      スポーツ大会の遠征の宿泊に利用しました。 アパートメントタイプは部屋も広く、キッチンも本格的なオーブンがあるなど、充実しています。 裏口?から出ると、スーパー(ウールワース)が目の前にあり、正面はエスプラネードというロケーションで、最高に便利です。来年も利用したいと思います。

      Not worth the money at all”
      We had a two-bedroom ocean view suite, both rooms are poorly maintained. They DO NOT look like the rooms shown on the website at all. Air conditioning didn’t work. The fridge was dirty. There’s no WiFi in the room. Spa is not heated (so why call it a Spa ?). The only thing good about it was that the ocean view was stunning.

      This hotel ideally located for all things for the tourist or the business person. Next to the ocean and lagoon; close to the river and cruise terminal; and in the middle of everything you could possibly need - groceries; restaurants; shops; hotels; & businesses.

      If the accommodations were as good as the staff”
      Location is great. It’s a two minute walk to the esplanade pool with tons of shops and restaurants nearby. The staff was very friendly. They originally upgraded us (yay!) but upon arriving to our upgraded room we found the air con in pieces on the floor. They moved us and comped us a few breakfast drinks (again, the staff was great). Cons - No free WiFi and the purchased WiFi sucks. The rooms are dated and have a hint of smell from the thousands of other guests before us. The blankets had stains on them, the a/c in one of the rooms didn’t work. The coffee shop in the lobby was impressively slow service, like I thik they grew the coffee beans, roasted them one at a time and then ground them one at a time. The end porduct was a good coffee but not worth the wait. All in all, I would try my luck at a different hotel before coming back. This is hardly the worst hotel we have stayed at but it is definitely in the bottom half.

      First time I have stayed at the Mantra Esplanade Hotel was in March 2018. The hotel is perfectly positioned opposite the Cairns Esplanade and if you are lucky to book an ocean view room the money is well worth it. I was very happy with this hotel and I will be staying again if I can get the room at a discounted price.

      Rooms weren’t the cleaning, there was no room service and house keeping was only available if you requested it (at a cost of course) no free wifi, requesting a cab was also at a cost. Only good thing was that it was close to the city (short walk to restaurant and main strip)

      dirty bed sheet”
      I have been traveling for several years, and this hotel makes me write my first comment. I book Mantra Esplanade hotel for my cairns holiday for 4 days. I had my check in at 6pm, then I went out right away having dinner for less then 3 hours . Then I back to the hotel and I found the bed sheet underneath had some kinds of dirt or maybe blood stain. I called the front dest wishing they will get me a set of clean sheet and I can change it. And what I had given was being yell and insulted by the senior female of the hotel . She claimed it is my fault, and they will not changing it for me because I had already checked in for a long time. And I explained to her I just check at 6. Well, I understood bed making in this hotel have to pay. Unless we stay 5 days and it will offers 1 bed making service. What i am mean is I want a clean bed sheet from the most being of the day. And they only give dirty bed sheet and make you pay. Maybe this is the way they makes money? Who knows.

      Location is fine but the apartment we were in was well overdue for a refurbishment. The furniture looked as though it could have been unchanged since the 1980s.
