The only reason I give this place one is because zero is not an option. Let me keep this short. I will start off with the good points. It had a roof. Ok finished on them. Now the bad points. Reception desk. The rudest people I have come across. They would not talk back to you and the occasions they... More

This was our second stay at the hotel and it was just like the first. Staff are friendly, helpful and it all happens with a minimum of fuss. We used the valet parking which makes life so much easier, you walk in, hand over the keys and forget about the car. When leaving, give the reception staff 5 minutes warning... More

Good Service and in the middle of town. Buses and taxi stands only a couple of minutes walk if you want to go further afield. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. If you arrive after 5 park in the st and save on the valet parking See you for our next stay

We stayed here as a family and we found the family room very spacious. For being in the centre of town very quiet and you of course were 2 minutes from the mall, Mitchell's street and all you wanted to see in town. The price was good value for Darwin which is very expensive in peak season. The rooms were... More

Located in the centre of the CBD the site is within easy walking distance to restaurants and City shopping. Valet car parking is available and all hotel staff were friendly and very prompt attending to our needs. The room was very clean and spacious, beds comfortable, with bathrooms appearing newly finished with high range complimentary soaps, shampoo's and lotions.

My wife and I stayed one night here and the room was comfortable and provided everything w needed. Whilst it was a little worn around the edges it wasn't rundown by any means. The Staff were very pleasant and most helpful. We can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there. The Wi-Fi wasn't the best but we've had... More

We stayed for a few days and extended for a couple more. Given the very central location of the hotel, it really assisted on every front... close to supermarket; across the road from the mall; cafe's all around; easy access to banks, restaurant's etc. Room was very clean and sheets were always white and crisp.
