Visited over Easter and wanted a relaxing stay by a gorgeous pool. The 2 pools at Sky City are the best in Darwin by a mile, the lagoon pool is one of the best pools I've come across in Australia. Checked into one of the older rooms and it had a musty smell that was covered up with disinfectant. After... More

I stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. The hotel itself is attached to the casino. I didn't have a car and that meant that the city is a good 15 minute walk away. The room I had was very nice however if you stay there you should request one of the rooms next to the pool with direct access... More

We were on the 2nd floor of the original hotel. Wooden shutters opened to reveal a small balcony with table and chairs overlooking the garden, swaying palms and a beautiful turquoise ocean. The perfect place to sit, sip wine and watch the beautiful sunsets. Our room was large and I think recently refurbished. The bed and pillows were super comfy.... More

It's an ok place unfortunately the buffet is no longer there and the prices at the restaurants is rather high considering the quality..... Fun I you are a gambler ... Not such fun if you lose... Would recommend a quick pop in but nothing spectacular except the beach view.

The location is ok, its close to the markets and the golf course. The rooms are ok, a bit dated for the price charged in the dry. I found the staff to be a bit bland and unhelpful. The upside is there is entertainment at hand with the bars and casino. All the same, next time I think I will... More

The resort side of the hotel was simply amazing and could not fault it, would definitely recommend a pool access room. However, the rooms in the hotel part were a little dated although there is currently renovations in progress. It is a bit of a walk to get into the main street in Darwin where all the restaurants are although... More

We stayed in a superior spa room. This is our favourite room in Skycity as it is nicer than a regular room. It also costs more! It has bathrobe, slippers and 5star toiletries. Also has a fab spa bath. Spa rooms are ground level with a little veranda with table and chairs to sit on and enjoy the day. 2... More

Room service menu was dismal, both in quality and in description. Ceasar salad arrived with no croutons (listed on menu). Breakfast arrived after 50... More

Close to town and quiet rooms. Great room service menus and restaurants within the complex. Some great bars to have the after work drinks and relax. Room was of high standard and very clean and comfortable. Casino is easy walk away and no noise experienced in room.
