4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel has had a revamp , I stayed in the older side and went to the casino.. Wow it was smelling and I mean bad of serious body odour. There isn't much to do there but drink. The staff weren't really too phased about good service.. Which I felt was disappointing for the money I had spent

Firstly, this hotel is rather remote from the city centre and is at least 20+ minutes walk from the city centre of Darwin and the heat is such that you will probably not want to walk so there is a cost to get to town centre. On arrival (we were room only basis) the receptionist took the usual imprint of... More

A great hotel to stay, close to all facilities & attractions. Rooms are reasonable and spacious. The " All you can eat ' bistro is just great. Make sure you try the seafood night - very reasonable. Darwin is a fairly expensive city in any case so you won't get away without putting your hand in your pocket. Skycity is... More

We stayed here 2 years ago as it was the platform for a longer visit to the Northern Territory. At that time, the positives were the location on the beach, close proximity to markets, pool, Italian restaurant and it being close to the social and shopping centre of town. The negatives were the vagaries of room service as breakfast especially... More

Perfect location to experience Darwin's famous sunsets. Adjacent to Mindal beach with it's spectacular tides.Next door to the twice weekly markets. Would recommend the lagoon suites but you will have to book early for these. Four or five restaurants, our pick was the one on the lagoon. They will give you a few casino freebies otherwise we wouldn't have bothered.... More

Being such an expensive place to stay we were expecting a really special room. The view from our room was the roof of another building. The rooms are very small and in need of a update which I believe they are in the process of. The pool is lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. located right on... More

Enjoyed our visit because of the pool access room, do not know how impressed we would have been with skycity if not for the room. So in our opinion you would probably need to be prepared to pay the rate for this room category which does not include breakfast. If you choose this room category you would probably be better...
