Came here on business, and I've stayed in quite a few places around Darwin, but this one is probably the best so far! Had a spa room, which was very nice to stay in and quite a large room. Services were all great and included free wifi. I really liked having a gym in the complex, and the pool is... More

We stayed at Skycity 10 years ago l. The older part of the hotel is a little tired but the new part is very good. We were in a junior suite with views over Cullen bay. The best spot for Territory day. The Mindel Bay fire works we were able to see from our own Balcony. Only in the Territory... More

Our room was in the older part of the resort and is in need of an update. The shower screen was very dirty, after having a bath the soap scum marks from a previous guest showed up. Toilet roll holder and toilet seat had a pad missing from underneath. Tiles were cracked and the grout was mouldy I ordered a... More

We enjoyed escaping Melbourne's winter weather for a stay in a Lagoon room. Our room was extremely comfortable and luxuriously appointed. The view from our balcony over the lagoon pool was beautiful and relaxing. The environment surrounding the resort was well maintained and clean. The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and respectful. Location was quite good although Public Transport... More

We travelled to Darwin up the Gibb River Road. After all those corrogations it was great to stay in the luxury of the Casino Resort. Great swim up bar and the meals at the restaurants were also great. Check in staff very helpful also. Would also recommend having treatment done at the day spa, the ladies there were very friendly...

Stayed two nights on a beach front unit on the third floor. It was whilst Territory Day was on and we wanted a good view of the Mindil Beach fireworks. The room we were in gave us that. Very small balcony though, so don't invite too many friends to share the view. Also a very large step to get to... More

I have stayed here twice for business and find Skycity the best for whats on offer around Darwin. Only a couple of minutes drive to the Darwin main drag Skycity offers beach views a geared down atmosphere and some good restaurants although some of the casino patrons can taint the atmosphere a little. Rooms in the older hotel section are... More
