Stayed there last weekend. Motel is 'dated' and badly needs an upgrade. Cockroaches in the room. TV was an old 'boxy' type that did not work properly. I complained and it was replaced with a new one. Quiet surroundings and handy to CBD. Would not stay there again.

Our stay at Paravista was not the best. The rooms were very rundown, cupboards broken, floors were dirty and the room smelled terribly. The beds which my kids were sleeping on had black ants, and although we requested the sheets to be changed the ants kept coming. I couldn't sleep as I was concerned that the ants would crawl into...

We stayed here for a few days back in 2013. I have a 4-year old daughter who is never in any way annoyingly noisy. The day after we checked in, at around 10am, we were going out to Casuarina to do some last minute shopping before our flight back to Manila. My daughter was singing in the lobby when she... More

So buy it and invest! Clearly the owners have not spent big for a while although travelling the world has made me immune to imperfections. It would lose points for the wifi going at one point but the lovely couple looking after things had that fixed so, for them, a point back. My ground floor balcony on 1st trip overlooked... More

This hotel is not terribly convenient for town and is a little tired. The rooms are showing their age, and reception is only available for limited hours. While convenient for Parap, there are better options at this price closer to the centre of the city.

Stayed here for 2 nights enroute to Thailand from Cairns. Rooms were a bit tired but not too expensive and fine for our needs. Small balcony was nice for our morning coffee. Parap had good eateries and was close to the pick up point for the explorer bus. We were fortunate to have a room on the ground floor so... More

The only nice thing to comment about this motel is their friendly reception and that's it. The rooms were dirty, haggard and worn out. The bed was so horrible that you can see the indentation of all the guests that have slept there. Yes it's near the Parap shopping centre and there are ample parking areas for the guests and...

This motel is about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Darwin. We had a room on the 3rd floor with no lift so a bit of a struggle getting up to our room with luggage (or even without). Our room was pleasant and clean and the reception people pleasant. We had a small balcony with a distant minute view... More

as per other reviews, this is a solid 3+. Would need big dollars to get to the next stage, most likely not worth it. We enjoyed our 2 nights and would use again, good location, clean and pretty quiet.
