Nice and close to everything. Great pool. Generally the rooms are ok but they are starting to look worn. Cleaning is okay but the hotel is due for a deep clean.

All was good except the air con. The room was quite cold even when I turned down the fans. Made it bit uncomfortable and there were no blankets in cupboard.

Hi Traveler, Thanks for the feedback about your stay at Mantra on the Esplanade. I apologise for temperature of the AC being too cold. All our rooms should have a spare blanket in the wardrobe and I have asked the team to check to ensure they do. Thank you again for the review and safe travels for the rest of your journey. Kind regards, Scott
