Our room was fine, clean and the aircon (while noisy) worked. Outside the room was a different story. The lift didn't work, the general surrounds were grotty and the traffic coming in and out later in the evening was colourful to say the least. It is close to Mitchell St and walking distance to lots of places. However, more affordable... More

exterior from the street and website photos look OK - this is far from the truth of the reality. Grimy accommodation to say the least - sheets were grey and had stains. Bathroom was not clean and we did not enter unless we had footwear. the people that run the place obviously DO.NOT.CARE. There were obviously long term tenants here... More

Don and I had an enjoyable stay here for our last two nights on our trip up the centre. The room was very clean and the air con was heaven in the Darwin heat. The price is affordable and the location is very central to walk around Darwin. Thank you both for an enjoyable stay Don and Wendy England

Enjoyable stay in the centre of town. Friendly reception from owners. Clean rooms, aircon worked, close to restaurants and shops. Well priced and centrally located. Fast and efficient service with a smile. Give them a try.

This place is not safe for female travellers, a lot of shouting/ banging/ arguments from other guests and outside, police present on more than one occasion. Not particulary clean. Overall: sketchy. Wouldnt advise

For a budget rate hotel, I found the price good. The pool area is great and i liked it's space. Very... More

Flying to Darwin on barely 6 hours notice we found that very little accommodation remained available. The Poinciana Inn was centrally located and boasted tariffs comparable to the exotic resorts in town. Could it be that bad? Well yes it could. Arriving after midnight getting entry to our room was the highlight, after that there is really not a lot... More
