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

My husband & I plus our 24 year old daughter stayed at Palms Motel for 2 nights while attending a family wedding in Darwin. We had a family room which was very spacious and very clean. The aircon was reasonably quiet and very efficient. The beds were extremely comfortable too. It was quiet and in a great location close to... 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

We stayed here from the 24/12/11 to 01/01/12. Although a little on the older side we found the Motel to be comfortable & clean. The housekeeping staff were wonderful...very helpful and friendly. Our room (1bedroom apartment with kitchenette and en-suite) was very roomy and plenty big enough for the three of us, laundry facilities were good, pool clean and the... More

We stayed there just for a few hours before flying out on a midnight flight back to Sydney. After camping for one week with my husband and parents in the national parks it was a great place to get settled, shower, sleep and chill in the pool. The service was great, its well priced and the rooms are very clean.... More
