We used their left-luggage service and had bags not arrive. Their quick and courteous help enabled us to track the bag and recover it from the airline. All their handling was on video and easy for them to check on our behalf. Thanks guys!

Palms Motel is a simple motel in a good location. The motel is just outside the city centre but it is easy to walk in Darwin for shopping: it takes about 15 minutes to get to the shopping area and restaurants. There is a pub across the road from the motel. The motel is ideally situated for visiting the Botanic... More

We found the Palms to be basic but very clean and tidy with helpful, friendly proprietors. Good for those on a budget or with families. On a map it seemed close to town but proved a little far for walking, particularly with heavy bags of groceries (Woolworths being several blocks away). There is an inviting pool and a hotel restaurant... More

This hotel was reasonable cost for Darwin. It had a very nice pool area, which was very welcome after a hot day sight seeing. It was quite convenient for Mindl beach, a bit of a longer walk to the town centre. The room was basic, but was clean, although a gap under the front door did allow cockroaches to pay... More

We found this motel via Topend recommendation. To our surprise, it was very very good, clean,quiet, value for money and the owners were most helpful. My family was very happy with the spacious family room we got (2 adults and a 10 yo). I would recommend it as a good place for budget family travellers. Your own kitchen and your... More

We stayed two weeks at The Palms Motel in Darwin recently (June/July) and although the motel is a little dated in decor and design we found the motel to be quite comfortable - very clean, quiet and friendly, and very close to town (walking distance) and to Mindil Beach. The first room we stayed in was a bit on the... More

Positives: Clean Room, Friendly Staff, DIY Laundry available ($3/cycle), Microwave oven & Toaster, Close to town, without the noise of Mitchell St. Negatives: The double bed in our room was very short. My feet were hanging over the edge (and I am only 165cm tall). Very Dated, The door and windows are curtained, but let a lot of fluorescent light... More
