Though the rooms are nothing special the facilities and location go toward making up for the drab decor. The views over the beach and sunsets are amazing. Staff really plesant friendly and helpful. Rooms clean. Amazing pool !

Darwin, NT, Australia. Hands down one of the most spectacular and chilled out places on anyone's travel calendar. The weather is hot, very hot! So be sure to keep your watering holes within walking distance (for hydration purposes of course). Not hard to do here as the City is literally got hundreds of them. Take a stroll down to Stokes...

So Skycity have spent a bit of money since taking over from MGM on the facilities such as two new pools but no money has been spent on the hotel rooms, same as they were 17 years ago under the MGM rule. TV set up is an absolute joke! circa 1990 most channels do not work and to change channel... More

We booked this hotel because we wanted a bit of luxury after a long trip up the Centre of Aus. In Sydney the restaurants inside the Casino are subsidised, not so with this one. Unfortunately our 1st breakfast included, 2 requests for our table to be set, a 30 minute wait for a coffee, (the machine wasn't working, so we... More

If there's one thing which annoys me is being charged for a room before you've even occupied it. And not only that but adding on $100 in so called extras. Of course I should have known the Darwin speciality of asking for payment before you've received the service but at a so-called above average hotel. breakfast was a treat the... More

Great place to stay, had the best 24Hr pools and room was a good size. Beds were comfy and the restaurant were fantastic. You could get to public transport with just a short walk and Reception were always there to help with even the littles question.

Visited Star Casino on Territory Day and it was mad. There was too many intoxicated customers to make it an enjoyable night. Ate at Cove Restaurant and that was nice and reasonable for the money. Will try it again next time I am there to give it a second chance.

This hotel is a star in Darwin! The rooms were clean and nice and the staff was helpful. We stayed for 2 nights with the intention of visiting the Mindil Beach Sunset Market. To our delight, the hotel is right next to that same market! If you can time your visit with this event, you'll love every minute! We also... More

I love the thought of where it is has the best pool love the idea of lunch and drinks around the pool but was expensive for what we got room wise. But then again Darwin is expensive. There is a great walk along the beach path and markets if you are there in the dry
