As with other reviews, we had no car for this part of our trip, but, Joan and Simon were very happy to collect us from the airport. After giving us a tour of the main city, they brought us back to their stunning B&B. It is a very spacious apartment with everything we needed and more. It is cook your... More

My parents-in-law had a fabulous time at Lilly Pad and raved about how clean and lovely the place was. They felt so welcome by Joan and Simon and thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the amenities and the tropical surroundings. They said if they ever go back to Darwin again they wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you Joan and Simon for looking... More

We've just spent 11 wonderful days staying at the Lily Pad, the problem is, where do I start? I chose this B & B totally because of the excellent reviews and was not disappointed. I booked 10 months ago and communication with Joan, regarding the booking was easy and straightforward. The accommodation is lovely, a floor to ourselves, with the... More

A large ground floor part of the family home. Every facility provided. Joan & Simon were extremely friendly & helpful, especially with recommendations for local shopping & eateries. Their invite to use the home pool was very welcome. Cannot recommend this property highly enough!

We had a wonderful stay here earlier this month. Simon and Joan are absolutely delightful people. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a most relaxing time. Expect your fridge to be filled with goodies for breakfast, gorgeous tropical fruit daily and endless eggs and bread, not to mention yogurt, bacon and honey from their very own bees. The... More

Simon and Joan run one of the friendliest and best B&Bs we've stayed in! Nothing was too much trouble and we loved the pool rules - no one in the pool after 5pm without a glass of wine or a beer in their hand! We really enjoyed our lazy late afternoon/early evenings in the pool with them and one vening... More

Darwin is a very warm/hot depending so this B&B just suited us with the pool. Turned out to be the highlight for us because the hiking was just too much with the heat. All the food is there for you at breakfast to make. Note: Excellent non stick pans!! HUGE BONUS I thought! We enjoyed the fresh eggs from their... More

Close to the airport and about a 20 minute bus ride out of Darwin city centre, this is a lovely, restful base from which to explore Darwin and the surrounding area. The beautifully clean, accommodation is on the ground floor and is extensive, comprising a well-equipped kitchen/diner, a large sitting area, a bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, a covered,...
