I needed a place to stay one night and I chose Best Western because it is near the airport. What a surprising experience. The staff is very friendly and the airport shuttle does make a difference. The room is clean and tidy. I really recommend this motel if you need a comfy place to stay.

I am used to rooms in the top end smelling moldy and damp. This had none of that and no mold in the bathroom either. Breakfast selection was good and the pub next door added a venue to meet clients or just have a beer and a meal.

A little way from the airport but does have a free shuttle service. Call their 1800 number or use the free phone after bag claim. Our room was an adequate size without being large. It was comfortable and had all we needed for an overnight stay. The bathroom was compact with a walk in shower. My only complaint is that... More

room was clean & comfortable. Breakfast delivered to our room was excellent. Location was convenient to the airport. Being located next to an hotel meant we could eat well-priced food for dinner without having to drive.

I was flying in to fly out in the middle of the night. The airport pickup was prompt , efficient and free. The reception was very pleasant and helpful answering all my questions and giving me tape to secure a "dodgy lock " on my bag. They have a tavern next door which I have eaten at prior to this...

Good staff were very courteous, unfortunately no breakfast room, had to go elsewhere to get breakfast, this was very disappointing as we had come a long way and were not impressed with having to go elsewhere to have breakfast, the stay was still very nice

The rooms are excellent.and they have a great pick up service though I had to handle all my heavy luggage alone. Well stocked fridge. Breakfast was on time but the eggs were overcooked. Be sure to request a room on the left side at the rear, as far from the noisy bistro next door as possible. Staff efficient but disengaged... More

Value for money during the Top End dry season would see the Best Western at the Darwin airport rate highly in my recommendation. Accommodating staff were a real treat, with free shuttles back and forwards to the airport, a real bonus.
