I stayed at SkyCity in December for a night on business. I stayed in the old part of the hotel, and while you could tell it was a bit tired, the room had been refurbished and was quite modern. As others have said, I had a small balcony, but the door was locked. This didn't worry me too much as... More

The newly built lagoon precinct offers a beach, swim up bar, and large lagoon pool to swim around in. The ground level rooms in this area offer a special benefit of being able to access the lagoon pool directly from your private verandah. Spend the day lazing in the pool and then laying in the sun on your poolside lounge.... More

We stayed in the older part of the hotel over Christmas, so there were no bargains. The room was average, bathroom a good size, balcony tiny, other room facilities what you would expect but overall, hardly 5 star. There was no consolidated information regarding hotel services available. Valet parking efficient and friendly, reception staff were fine. A disappointment was the... More

My boyfriend took me there for the week-end. We had a nice room with direct access to the lagoon. Except the poor service at the pool bar just across the room, the stay was excellent. And I'm glad because I overheard the price for the room :/

I stayed in a One Bedroom Suite and it was fantastic. Very spacious with a large spa bath and king size bed. I have stayed in all room types at Skycity and this is my favourite. Check in was a breeze with hotel staff friendly and efficient. Porter service was great and never had to wait for the car. The... More

We recently booked a one night stay at Sky City as we were attending a work Christmas party, due to the low season (wet season) I was offered a reduced Territorian rate of $199 for a sea view room. On arrival I was offered valet parking - this service used to be complimentary, however it now costs an extra $15.00... More

After booking a Superior Spa room we quickly upgraded from Skycitys hotel to their Resort having opened around 2.5 years ago. These rooms are far superior to the hotel. The room is situated on their lagoon. Our room was a swim up room, basically walk out of the room onto the private balcony then sun tanning lounge area, straight into... More
