Very well located in the centre of Cairns. All shops and restaurants and the reef terminal are all within a very short walking distance.

We chose the hotel based on location and we wanted a kitchen to cook for ourselves occasionally. We were super happy with our lagoon view 1 bed apartment. Spare towels and loo paper would have been helpful but overall highly recommend.

Accomodation & furniture standard only. The balcony view though was perfect, delivered to my expectations. Mantra needs to upgrade their furnitures
