Handy motel not far from the airport and offers nice clean rooms and free internet, which is good. Room and bed were comfortable and I had a big breakfast delivered to the room in the early morning before my flight out. Has a club-restaurant right next door.

Darwin is a pricy place by nature cause of its remoteness ..in that case, this hotel is a great value.. the greatest advantage is that is close to the ariport ...if you are not planning to rent a car, don't stay there...in my case it was great...close to the highway and airport and could drive to the cbd without any...

Really convenient, only a five min drive to the airport and the hotel runs a shuttle service 24/7. Rooms are pretty standard but modern and clean and have everything you would need. I find their prices a little high compared to town but you're paying that little more for the convenience. Great for early and late flights but otherwise it's... More

I chose the Best Western for its location, close to where I had to be the next morning. I've stayed there before, some time ago, so I was aware of the hotel's plusses and minuses. The basic room I had was fairly small, but more than adequate for one night. Bed was probably a bit on the hard side, but... More

Adequate hotel which is clean and serviceable. The shuttle from the airport makes a big difference too. The restaurant provides ok food - perfectly fine if you don't want to pay a big taxi fee to eat in central Darwin.

Great place by the airport to sleep off the jet lag! Free shuttle service will bring you here. Staff efficient rather than super friendly. Enjoyed going troppo in Darwin for 5 nights before onward road trip! All in all a good stay

My elderly parents, husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid-October. Free shuttle picked us up at airport promptly after a quick call at 11pm. Rooms with queen beds were a little tight for us and our luggage (a 3 week trip around Australia from USA). We had a little struggle figuring out how to turn on lights... More

Clean, close to airport and perfectly adequate. But why in such a hot climate can't the hotel offer free cold water? The only cold drinking water that was offered was bottled and there was no ice to be found to chill our wine. An ice machine and or a pitcher of water in the fridge would be a welcome addition.
