Found the staff very rude!!!! The food was not nice at all. For a veal schnitzel & gravy $24 & it was gross!!! There was a mix up with one of our meals so I took it back (at the time I didn't realise it was our mistake), the bar staff didn't know I was at the bar & she... More

We stayed in the hottest month of Darwin so loved all the pools. Great atmosphere and facilities for families. Staff were friendly and helpful. Just out of Darwin but close enough as a base to explore the area. Amenities were clean and tidy. Highly recommended

Stayed in the pool side villa for 8 nights, really enjoyed the accommodation, the staff were helpful and friendly and the rates were excellent. Will stay again for sure! Highly recommended. It's close to Darwin and all surrounding suburbs, making it easy and quick to get around. The villa was more than roomy and well kept.
