Allison Business - 21/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 4 years for business travel. Unfortunately this will likely be my last stay here. Over the past 4 years the quality of the hotel has declined to the point where it now looks and feels very old and uncared for. The sheets are stained, towels thread bare and smell, walls need painting, appliances are rusted and the cutlery and dishes were all dirty. In an 11 day stay I only had my room cleaned once. There is also no restaurant any more and the hotel was barely occupied and they insisted that I pay for parking at $15 per day.

Dear Allison, Thank you for your review. We deeply apologise for the inconvenience that you experienced during your stay with us. I have shared your comments with the concerned managers so that we take appropriate actions. In regards to the restaurant, the operator left at the beginning of the pandemic and the owner is still actively looking for a replacement. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Terence

Well located and room facilities were just what we wanted

Above our Expectations

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Rebecca Families - 10/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked a room for 2 adults and 3 kids. What we got was better than we expected. The 'apartment', which consisted of a 1 bdrm apartment and a hotel room linked by a common entry was amazing. It was great for our teenager to have a place to chill out on his own and equally as great for us all to come together as a family for dinner.

Dear Rebecca Thank you for your great review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and our convenient location. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Steve Families - 05/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked very late due to a COVID-19 change in plans and so glad we did. The three bedroom apartment was fantastic and perfect for our family stay of 8 nights! Whilst there were some minor maintenance issues (lights, fuses and door batteries) the wonderful Arjay fixed them quickly. We really appreciated the check in the day before arrival. As a platinum Accor member we were happy with our requested upgrade to oceanview and the hand drawn and hand written welcome note was noted along with the little gift! Whilst there was not restaurant or bar it wasn't really an issue as there were so many nearby. We did find it odd that we received complimentary drink vouchers for the sister property (despite their bar being closed most of our stay). Overall the location is excellent and we had a great stay (despite the weather)

Dear Steve Thank you for your great review! We are glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay and our convenient location. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return.

Short Stay with the family before we started our holiday

great apartments with everything you could need for a short or long stays with the family i could not recommend this enough. staff were really great to deal with and very helpful so thank you- close to town and shops what ever you need it is all walking distance - there is also electric scooters out the front of the hotel allowing you access to all of the darwin CBD

Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for your valuable feedback. We're delighted that you enjoyed the experience and we hope to welcome you again soon.

Disappointed and Expensive

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

danielbK2016AU 02/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

I am an Accor Member and where possible always stay at their hotels, as in most cases I am very happy with value and service but not this time! I booked this hotel in Darwin, and paid the premium price with Accor, above same quality hotels on booking.com which were cheaper. However, what a disappointment, after riding 4 hours on a motorbike we arrived at the hotel only to find, that there were no facilities available - No Bar - No Food - No Coffee - No Restaurant - No anything The drink vouchers were given to me and water and coke was in a tiny fridge on the reception desk. What I am most disappointed about wasn’t that the above wasn’t available, as I am aware of what COVID is doing to the industry, BUT at no point was this mentioned prior to the booking, which gave me the impression that I have just been taken advantage of. As mentioned, it wasn’t so much paying the inflated price, but not being told that these facilities were not available, they don’t even have anyone serving coffee in the morning let alone Breakfast. I will be back in Darwin in March with the team however I doubt very much that MANTRA Darwin will see me again! Please NOTE – The above isn’t a reflection on the staff, they were good

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. We're sorry you were unhappy - we'll work hard to fix the issues you experienced. Thanks for letting us know. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you for a much-improved stay in the near future.
