Great stay at Mantra Esplanade”

City view room and had a view of the lagoon pool! Even the building works across the road didn't affect us. Good sized room, comfortable, all staff really friendly and an asset to the hotel, great pool and temperature. Husband valued having the gym. So close to everything. Perfect spot for our 4 night stay.

Fantastic location and value for money room”

I extended my stay and moved to a 1-bedroom city view apartment for 4 nights. This room had everything you could need for a longer stay. It was clean, a great size apartment, a decent size balcony for enjoying a beer on, and the bed was comfortable enough. I didn’t use the pool, but it looked nice. The gym was unfortunately closed (I assume due to Covid). As others have mentioned, there was no housekeeping during my stay in this room. Would it have been nice to have it cleaned? Yes. Was it really needed? No. The location is nothing short of fantastic for your stay in Cairns. Close to the quay for your reef tour, close to some great bars, yet far enough that they don’t keep you up unless you’re there yourself, directly across from the lagoon for a swim, the Cairns Art Gallery next door, and across from the boardwalk. The staff were welcoming and accommodating the few times I needed anything. Would stay here again pretty happily.

Fantastic location”

I booked a city view room for 5 nights. It was clean, a decent size balcony for enjoying a beer on with a view that overlooked the mountains (and subsequent sunset), and the bed was comfortable enough. I didn’t use the pool, but it looked nice. The room itself was a bit dated with the furniture scratched. If you have the ‘we’re only sleeping in it’ attitude, you’ll be fine with this, but it probably needs a bit of a makeover. The location makes up for this and is nothing short of fantastic for your stay in Cairns. Close to the quay for your reef tour, close to some great bars, yet far enough that they don’t keep you up unless you’re there yourself, directly across from the lagoon for a swim, the Cairns Art Gallery next door, and across from the boardwalk. The staff were welcoming and accommodating the few times I needed anything. Would stay here again pretty happily but would probably opt for the one bedroom room which I did when I extended my trip (see other review).
