Stayed one night on my journey south last week and was happy with accommodation so am using it again this week on my trip back. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. The overhead fan did make a bit of noise but I didn't need it on anyway. Paid for a cooked breakfast the next day but I won't bother... More

Sitting in Changi Airport waiting to fly to Darwin, I received an email advising me that my connecting flight in Darwin was "delayed" for 7 hours extending my Darwin transit beyond anything I could endure by sitting around, what is, a pretty spartan International hub. So I emailed this hotel and asked about a 5am check-in and 1pm check out... More

We do not do overnight air travel unless we have a lay flat seat. So returning from Bali we fly the short distance to Darwin. Arriving at 3am it is a short walk to the hotel pushing trolleys. We stored our airport trolleys in their store room ( with folding bikes) and were quickly booked in and bedded down. The... More

We stayed in this hotel last January 3, 2014. Because we came from a long flight we checked in around 6am and requested for a late check out (1pm) which was approved by the night shift staff. At 9am housekeeping staff knocked on our door without saying anything and open the door and closed it back when she saw us... More

I stayed at the 6 story hotel, which is about 400 metres from the airport and opposite the Rydges Resort. The place was fine for me, definitely not with the extra 5 star facilities some expect, but the rooms were clean, spacious, with lift access and pleasant staff. My room facing away from the airport had a balcony, which was... More

The hotel reminds me of a huge demountable building, a little like the old classroom buildings. The reception staff are dreadful.
