We have just returned from a conference in Darwin and we were lucky enough to stay at the Darwin Central Hotel. Location was excellent , staff were great and very helpful and they have a lovely buffet breakfast. Would highly recommend .

We arrived around 5:00 on a Sunday afternoon, keen to settle in and head to the Mindil Markets on our first trip to Darwin. The staff were efficient and very welcoming and despite a problem with access to the car park had us settled in and arranged a shuttle bus to the markets. The room was spacious and comfortable.

Delighted to spend one night in Darwin's very Central hotel in Knuckey Street. This property is so well laid out, clean, comfortable and welcoming - I would happily recommend to anyone for mutiple days stay. Fully equipped kitchen with microwave, grill, toaster and everything needed for four people. Great experience. Thanks.

Very good, can't complain. Pricey, but you get that in Darwin.Was quiet up on the sixth floor and the air conditioning noise wasn't too bad. Very close (short walk) to Mitchell Street and the pubs/ clubs etc there. Lots of things in easy walking distance including the wave pool, Stokes Wharf, cafes, pubs, clubs and travel agents.

I have stayed here several times while traveling for business and cannot fault the hotel. Excellent location, walking distance to everywhere, rooms are spacious and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast and room service options are also great!

However, I found the reception staff very unhelpful and one particular staff member was rude and argumentative. For example,was ignored by a staff member for 3 mins before acknowledging I was there standing right in front of... More

Stayed here for a couple of days on a business trip. Arrived on the red-eye & check-in was efficient & friendly. Room was clean & facilities all up to scratch. Only downside was it having only quite a small window (which didn't open at all) and consequently the room was a little too dark during daylight hours.

Would like to say we had a great night's sleep and that the service we got from a beautiful young girl at front desk.. Taurie Appo was outstanding. This young lady has everything going for her and hope she goes far.

We stayed for seventeen days Aug/Sept and received everything we asked for. As it is central the views are of the surrounding city but we had no problem with this. Our twin Queen on the seventh floor was spacious , had a fridge/ mini bar, large screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities , iron and board and hair dryer.... More

Check in was a nightmare. Conference attendees arriving. One check in person swamped. Everything else is good but beware there are NO balconies on the rooms. No sitting outside with a glass of wine or anything.
