I am not sure why but on the few occasions that I have stayed here I have never felt welcomed. The staff have always been friendly and helpful but It just doesn't compare with other places. The rooms are nice and the value is good.mlocation is central and close to some good restaurants and pubs. I probably should give it... More

I stayed here for several nights bookending a 9 day tour of the NT. The staff here couldn't have been more helpful, despite my pestering them for change, buggering up their washing machine, asking for info and advice incessantly and then leaving something behind and their having to post it on to me. I even extended my stay when I... More

This was a return stay as last time was excellent. This time we had our room services once in five days and received a nasty surprise on check out that we owed for carl parking. Apparently when I signed the car in I agreed to charges ( silly me for not reading what I was signing) but have never ever... More

We stayed here either side of a three day excursion to Kakadu National Park. The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable. The in-room coffee making facility worked well. The location is great. The hotel is within 100 yards of Mitchell Street (the main 'downtown street) but being tucked down a side street it is impervious to city centre... More

We found the Darwin Central well positioned within short walking distance from the waterfront precinct. The rooms were clean and spacious and the friendliness of the staff exceptional. We were initially concerned about traffic in central Darwin but the laid back atmosphere of the place crosses over to city traffic.. There are numerous eating places close by to enjoy, but... More

Found this hotel really good value for a SHORT stay in Darwin! Staff very pleasant, our room very clean and accomodating with comfortable beds!! This hotel is situated very centrally so easy walk around the city (waterfront & Esplanade), 400 mtrs max to Mitchell St mall,range of cafes and restaurants,convenience shops nearby.

The room was big and clean, the staff was ok, but all in all it is not a spectacular hotel. The breakfast was quite expensive. You can walk to the Esplanade and the town centre in a few minutes, it is really quite central.

I'd really like to give the Darwin Central a score of 3.5 but this isn't possible so I have erred on the generous side because it did grow on me during our stay. It is very well situated, good value and and the breakfasts are very good. We had to pay for wifi but it was only $2 per night... More

Great hotel. Only stayed for one night but would come back again. Only downfall is waiting 7 working days for security bond refund. (checked in on a Saturday out on Sunday so didn't get refund for almost 2 weeks)

Had brief business trip and due to location have chosen this hotel. Rooms were fine, spacious and clean. A lot of restaurants in the area allowed me to have some good Aussie food. Breakfast was fine and reach, for anything else it was too short time to make proper assessment. However, nothing negative observed at all.
