Thank you for your information of areas and prompt friendly transport. You are a company that shows you care and goes to lengths to make sure one is comfortable and prepared for the next day. You also helped me to feel less nervous about conference and interview. :)

A very new and clean hotel with friendly staff. Really convenient when you have late and early flights. The shuttle is the biggest bonus. Dropped me at the airport at 2:30 am! Very easy option when you are really tired and looking for a bed.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of December. I was initially skeptical as to the potential quality of the room, but I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. The customer service we received was great. I called the hotel the night before to see if we could get the room early,... More

Ideal if you have short lay-over, they pick you up in less than 3 mins, have friendly people that make all the difference - even at 4:am they still smile and seem fresh. Would have been a perfect airport hotel if the hot water did not come and go and the air-con did not make such a noise. Avoid 202.... More

The hotel is situated close by the airport, however its not ideal to walk from the terminal to the Hotel. They do however offer a fantastic free shuttle 24/7. The room I stayed in was basic and clean. There was quite a lot of noise from the passage ways. I didn't check out the pool area or any near by... More

This hotel is ideally suited to travelers as it is near the airport and the hotel next door has excellent, cheap meals. Not the top end of the accomodation scale, but fine for doing buisiness with friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and good value for money.

We booked this hotel as we were flying into Darwin late in the evening following an international flight and then flying out the next morning again on a domestic flight. We were looking for something close to the airport and this motel even provided a complimentary shuttle bus. Just ring the motel when you have your luggage and are ready... More

I had my laptop stolen not long after this trip so didnt have the state of mind to write a review. I have recently had it returned by police & found the photos from the room so thought I would add those at least. Good place to stay, comfortable & great pub next door!

Stayed here about 4 times this year. Great owners and staff so helpful. Clean rooms, great parking, close to airport, pick up and drop off, restaurant next door to eat in or take away - would definitely go again. Also has lift to floors and balconies
