After a long haul flight and the prospect of a further four hour drive this was a great place to recover. We arrived at 5am and were greeted with friendly staff. It's a busy place catering perfectly for the airport traveller. We had a two bedroom unit, four single beds, a small but clean, modern lounge, and large bathroom with... More

Location and room good. Bistro food good. Put off by a group of aborigines swimming fully clothed in the outdoor pool with a naked baby too ! This is a poor advert as it obviously puts people off swimming !!

Have stayed at this hotel several times when passing through Darwin on business. Close to Darwin airport. They pick you up from the airport for free, just need to call the hotel and they come get you immediately - excellent service! Staff are friendly and well trained. The hotel is one of the most modern hotels in all of Darwin.... More

The room was fine, but an average room, certainly not worth the price, but I guess that's what you have to pay in Darwin. Pros: Very close to Airport; Friendly staff booked very early morning cab for us. Cons: Nothing much around; hotel next door was ok for lunch, but beers very overpriced! Ordered a pizza for dinner which was... More

I checked into this hotel in the wee hours of the morning after my flight was cancelled. They were able to accommodate me on practically no notice. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle bus service from Darwin airport which was fabulous at 3am after being stranded at The airport after the cancelled flight. The friendly hotel staff also offered me... More

Stayed here for two nights early October. Staff were wonderful upon check in. Very quick and easy to deal with. Room very clean and quiet spacious for an airport hotel. The free shuttle service to the airport available 24/7 is a massive bonus. Will stay again!

Its one of the best airport hotels/ motels which I've stayed in. Slightly over 1 km from the hotel to the main Darwin airport building; but no problem because they run a 24 hour shuttle bus service to collect and deliver guest/passengers. So location is great without any aircraft noise. Hotel is clean, rooms are very clean and more than... More
