Barramundi is nicely located halfway between the beach and the cbd. There is parking, and a small but pleasant pool. The hotel to me looks a bit tired. The owner does state that she is trying to improve all the rooms when she can. Our room had a kitchen, which saves having to buy expensive meals out. Australia is expensive.... More

Me and my boyfriend found that this place was good value for money. The rooms are basic but great for what we were looking for. The staff are knowable about Darwin and what to do along with being friendly. They allowed early check out possible to catch an early flight which was great! The grounds are very relaxing with a...

Just a quick mini break for the family in darwin, where we had not been before. As we only wanted a place to sleep we really weren't after room service and shampoo and shower caps etc so we chose Barramundi based on price. I was a bit nervous after reading some of the reviews here but I think people have... More

I stayed here for 9 nights while visiting Darwin and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone after a place to stay that is quiet, friendly and good value. Barramundi is perfectly placed between the city and the beach, it is spotlessly clean and has really helpful staff, who made our stay a very pleasant one. The room decor may be... More

The Barramundi lodge is what it is a Lodge not a 5 star Motel but has the qualities of a family home with the privacy you needed hidden away from the traffic hustle an bustle. The one thing I love about the lodge beside the price is that no need to worry about cleaners knocking on your door like they... More

Do yourself a favour and dont stay here, not worth the money you pay at all. Dirty and very bad kept. We booked a family room and we were all cramped in a small room. The aircon however worked a treat on the hot day but from outside they looked unsafe as there was black burn marks on there.

Thankyou for taking the time to fill in your review for your stay. Seeing as you are still in-house it would have been good to sort your concerns face to face . As I was completly unaware of any problems and speaking face to face over the last 2 days nothing has been mentioned. The air-con in your room is... More

We arrived at the lodge at 9am on a Saturday morning. We asked if we could let our luggage before checking in. The manager said that it was completely safe so we did so. When we came back at 5pm, one bag and a luggage wasn't there anymore. We asked for the owner to come. This person wasn't really concerned... More
