Thanks for your valuable feedback. We're sorry about the problem you experienced with the a/c which was due to a compressor which failed.

The room was lovely, the bed was very comfortable. Very disappointed regarding parking, was advised parking in the carpark was $15, I did not utilize this, parking should have been free, it should have been covered in the cost of the room. I will probably not be stay at Mantra on the Esplande again due to this.

Hi there, really sorry that we dissapointed you with car parking charges. May be our team wasn't aware that car parking wasn't used. In future , during the check-in time please let one of our team member know that you may or may not need the car park and they will process further according to your request. iT works the same way for both of our property. If the car parking has been requested it wll automatically be charged in your accout and vice-versa. Thank you for your feedback. we really appreciate that. have good day!

Toilet didn't flush. No drinking water available in the fridge - during summer in Darwin this is pretty important!
