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.

Had just returned from trip to UK and Scotland where to say the least even a 4star rating is like backpacking.Paravista was a breath of fresh air.Spotless rooms and even though a bit dated made the grubby rooms in UK look terrible.Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone,

As other people have stated this Motel is a little dated but it was lovely and clean, and the queen-size bed was really comfy. We were on the third floor and the stairs weren't a problem. Liked having a little balcony and there was a large wardrobe in our room so plenty of hanging space. The air-con worked well but... More

This is my second time staying at the Paravista Motel, and I have to say I was not disappointed. The rooms were again clean and tidy, and Nelson was wonderful to turn the air con on for me before I got there. Nelson remembered me from my visit last year, and had a laugh and joke with me like he... More

well wade your story is amazing and you are very good at stretching the truth, but there is always two sides to every story, yes you did fail to see the very large sign that states about late night procedure ( mind you that no one else has had any trouble seeing the sign or reading it ) what you...

This motel really is stuck in the 70s. Both the air conditioner and the fan were too noisy to use at night. The fan in particular was weird. It was a high tech wall mounted fan but it was either ultra fast or cutting in and out. The fittings are definitely dated without being heritage. The Manager (owner?) was unhelpful... More

This Motel is a good choice if you are looking for clean affordable basic accommodation in the suburbs of Darwin. The rooms, though a bit dated, were clean and the beds and pillows comfortable with good free wifi. Parking on site is free, the pool and BBQ area is nice and there is a shared kitchen/dining room on the floor... More

Situated in a nice area not far from the CBD , close to Parap markets/ shops, Fannie Bay, & East Point which has a beautiful reserve and walks. Ideal if you have a car but also very close to a bus stop, costs $3 to catch a bus to city. I ended up staying here for 5 nights and loved... More

Overall the room was fine, basic, clean yet dated, you could find nicer accommodation closer to the city around the same price. The downfall was the outside noise, carried through the corridors. Woken more than once through the night by partygoers arriving back, although a weeknight. I slept with the window open for fresh air, the neighbours cigarette smoke would... More
