We did not have to spend much time in the room, but while we were there the room was very comfortable and very quiet. We were amazed by how big the standard room was and loved the little kitchen. We only stayed two nights and did not have to use the pool or any other facilities. Would recommend this hotel...

Was not what we expected for the amount we paid! $700+ for four nights (hotel room) was just a bed and that's it! No daily turn down service had to pay more for that! Ran out of toilet paper n asked for more had to pay for that too!

Dear 783samy, Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry to hear your stay was average. During the peak season our rate as with many properties do increase based on demand. Whilst we do not offer daily servicing complimentary towels and amenities are available from reception. I will investigate why you were told that you had to pay for...

Mantra On The Inlet was booked based on previous experience of staying at Mantras across Australia. This accommodation came as a surprise (not a good one) as the hotel rooms are exceptionally small - claustrophobically small. The bathroom is standard size and on par with other Mantras. The beds are on rollers and tend to travel across the room at...

Great location in the main street and close to all the restaurants & cafes. Beautifully decorated clean room, with everything you need. including free undercover parking. The only downfall was the amount of stairs in the building.

Perfect location directly above shops, restaurants and cafes with a short walk to the marina and beach. Lovely decor and very clean quiet room towards the back on the top level. Reception was hardly manned but phoning them you got the help and assistance you needed. The choice of the Mantra pools was a bonus. Downside was paying for internet...

Chosen for the convenience of location. Clean rooms, lovely toiletries. Quiet inside despite being above the live bands and nightlife. Convenient free undercover parking. Only drawback was the four flights of stairs as we were on the top floor.

Very noisy in morning, view of pub roof was not pleasant. Lots of stairs!! Rooms were nice but a bit tired looking. Not what I would term a suite. Twin beds were in spa room which was disappointing and no toilet door.

Couldn't ask for a better location in Port Douglas. The hotel is situated in the hub of it all with fantastic dining choices and cafes at your finger tips. Hotel room was modern and quiet though a little small.
