Yes the Paravista is an old motel however the rooms were clean, recently painted and the beds very comofortable and we found the manager to be helpful. We stayed for a couple of nights then went touring in litchfield for a couple of nights and came back for the night before flying back to Brisbane. We have no problem recommending... More

The guy at the reception was a bit obnoxious, but once you've dealt with him, the room was ok. Not perfect; the door to the ensuite had no tongue in it, and the AC was very noisy. The pool had leaves and other debris floating in it. The kitchen upstairs was equal to the worse camp kitchen I've seen in... More

Quiet location, slightly outside CBD but if you've got a hire car it's less than 5mins into town. Rooms are a little dated, and the aircon is loud, but a great spot overall. Comfy beds, a nice balcony, swimming pool and nearby pub/shops/ATM are very handy. We checked in very late, and the management were really helpful - responded to... More

I am not sure how this motel got four and five stars from some travellers : I stayed in room 18 on the third floor and my impressions were far from good. The shower hot water did not work, the sink is small and no shelves to place your toiletries. One of the bedsides lamps was also not working. In... More

I recently stayed at The Paravista Motel for a week and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Absolutely loved the location - just around the corner from Parap Village and the Saturday markets. The bus stop is close by and I enjoyed being a few minutes from the city. The room was fantastic, clean and roomy and a nice little balcony.... More

This motel is a short drive from the airport, Mindil Beach, Cullen Bay and the Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, but not that close to the city centre. It is also not far from Darwin Sailing Club, which serves very good meals with a great view (and is open to visitors from outside the Northern Territory, without... More

I stayed at the Paravista for a total of 3 nights in early October.The main reasons I chose the hotel were that they would keep my bag in storage for 4 days while I went on a tour, their prices were within my budget while most of the other hotels in Darwin were too expensive,and,a huge plus, they have free...

A hotel built in the 1970s now in need of refurnishment and possibly a lift to the third floor. Comfortable, with everything you need in a stopover but out of the way - the only close attraction is the Parap markets on saturdays... otherwise you need a car.
