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

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

We arrived in Darwin at a point where there were few hotels at any prices with rooms due to the massive long term influx of contract workers building Darwins hotel and gas terminal future. We came off the Ghan and had to stay one night elsewhere in order to get a few days in this hotel (as the only hotel)... More

We stayed there two nights. Booked in 10minutes before arriving. Was the cheapest place in Darwin. We had a family room, it was tiny but just enough. Room was clean. Good rate price/quality. Very close to everything.
