The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the airport and despite being 1am the staff were helpful and cheery and efficient. The late night rate was of very good value. The business room was basic but with a HD television, tea and coffee provided, good bed and bathroom plus a balcony. Also air conditioned. Breakfast can be ordered... More

Depending on you desires, this location can be great or not so much. It's close to the airport for an easy in and out. If the city and beaches are your scene, this is not close to them. Overall though this not a bad place to stay at. Rooms are clean, have nice balconies and the hotel is next to... More

I choose to stay over night each month on my way interstate & oversea via the Darwin Airport. Clean, tidy and friendly every time. The airport bus is an extremely valuable service for my type of accommodation and travel requirement.

Stayed for 2 nights. Late check in is always a bonus for Darwin, minimal noise, despite it being next door to a noisy pub. Bed was comfy and the room was clean. Will keep this as my regular spot for my Darwin stop overs :)

I stayed here for one night after a late night flight and was pleased with the level of service I received. Courtesy bus to the airport an added bonus. And they offer Territory discounts which I was really happy about!

Lovely pool, free airport pick up and drop off, 3 km from casuarina shopping centre or 25 min walk. Also a bus around the corner takes you to casuarina where you can catch a bus to Darwin. Bistro next door serves good food. Breakfast at hotel is room service only.

Spent a layover here and was impressed. Very friendly staff, clean and updated rooms. There is free internet and a nice pub next door. You can order breakfast at the front desk and it is delivered in the morning, I enjoyed mine. I would stay here again.
