Great hotel in good proximity
This is our 4th year back to the Mantra on the Esplanade and we love the proximity as well as the wonderful views from the balcony. We will be back next year!

Could be better
Hi, When my guests checked in the property, they were given the wrong room keys (an 8th floor room) and fortunately, the room they entered did not have any compromising scenes happening. The room that my guests checked in eventually (on the 7th floor), one of the living room lights were not functioning. In our booking, we booked a room via Hotel.Com that would have the sea view and it was a room at the Water Front Apartments, however, we were routed to Mantra hotel and so, not having a sea view room was obviously a disappointment. Apart from that, every thing else is fair. No cable TV as well and TVs are not internet connected so, no Netflix or Youtube to view.

Great room, better than I anticipated. Close to the city and easy walking to restaurants and coffee shops. All staff were friendly and very helpful.

Great place to stay in Darwin, NT
Water view room gives fabulous view of Darwin's famous sunsets. Upgrade to one with a balcony to enjoy the balmy evenings. Location is ideal for nightlife, restaurants, points of interest and just ambling the CBC.

Disappointing View
We were thoroughly disappointed with the view from our room, over looking 4-5 noisy backpaper hostels was not what we were excepting when choosing to stay on the esplanade. We even requested a water view room for our 5 night stay but was told on checkin there were none left?? I would not stay here again unless guaranteed an ocean/esplanade view room.
