Good service, nice rooms and a great location for eating out or a stroll around the waterfront. Booked through a 3rd party who screwed up the reservation and the hotel staff were helpful in sorting it out.

The hotel was well located next to a public wave pool and a small safe beach in a popular waterfront area in Darwin. It was only a short stroll to the centre of Darwin and the information centre. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I was disappointed with the pool - it was quite cold to swim in and... More

Nice comfortable room. Fantastic service. Perfect location. Restaurants, wave pool & swimming enclosure at your front door. Deck chair cinema nearby. Building design is unusual was like a maze to get from carpark to room. Overall would recommend, enjoyed our stay.

Nice and clean hotel in a great position. Ask for a room with the water view. Had problems with the safety box. It was not working and the staff could not repair it.... Anyhow the service was very good.

Great hotel which is wonderfully located on the waterfront. Great dining choices nearby. Will be back here for sure when next I come to Darwin and would definitely recommend this hotel to others. Added bonus is that there are apartment options as well. I had a room service breakfast that was awesome.

Large rooms Clean Nice view and situated near the Wave Pool and swimming area. Close to restaurants. The only complaints were being disturbed by staff giving one knock before entering to check mini bar. The do not disturb can't be put up as it controls the power. Also got different info from reception re net and printer info.

The common areas such as hallways & lifts were filthy; it was bizarre. I asked 3 times for the food scraps, dental floss & used tissues to be removed from the hallway near my room & luckily the woman I told the third time was checking as I was returning to my room. The floor had been vacuumed but the... More

As previously stated on the other page - the sink was blocked and black mould stuff was coming out. The plate was sticky and I could hear everyone walking across the bridge at night. Checkout took forever also.

I agree with lots of others who would like free wifi for a bit longer and a bit more data. When you are travelling you need to use it for emails and to research some local things. In Europe we found it free unlimited in most hotels just needed a password. This is especially useful as there was very little... More
