We managed to get the room on a special rate as it was off season ($80) and I'm glad we did. Whilst the room was a decent size it was pretty dated and could do with a lick of paint. The staff where friendly enough however they managed to accidentally charge us twice for our booking which we had to... More

Friendly and efficient front counter service and helpful housekeeping staff make it a pleasant stay. Fantastic, central location. Although the restaurant is only open for breakfast, being right in the middle of town it is a short stroll to a huge variety of dining options.

Lovely clean room with comfy beds. Bathroom also spotless. Laundry facilities appreciated. Reception staff most polite. Didn't use the restaurant but looked at the menu which was a good range of food, reasonably well priced. Only a short walk to the coast, yet close to the shops and tourist walks.

I travel in to Darwin regularly for 1-2 night stays, either on my own or with my wife. We have received a consistently high level of service every visit over the past 6-12 months, where other properties in Darwin can be extremely inconsistent. The cleanliness of the rooms is always exceptional and of a 5 star standard. The room rates... More

When I am in Darwin I do not often stay at the Hotel, one of the main reasons is its one of the few hotels that charges for parking. When I enquired they wanted $18 a day for valet parking. There is parking on the street but as someone else has mentioned I am not sure how safe it is.... More

Would be good if they didn't charge/or charged less for valet per day. And also heightened security in the back alley where you walkin & out. Each time we were out there, there was a fight.

We stayed here for a couple of nights when we first arrived in Darwin. Very reasonable prices at $90 per night. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Quite a small pool area but was still nice. Only thing which marred our stay was check-in. The lady who served us just didn't want to be there, we didn't feel welcomed at all.
