We had a room on the lagoon which was well appointed and had all the requirements you expect from a room at that price. The service offered by the staff was friendly and professional. The only real disappointing part of the stay was the standard of food. We had breakfest in the room which was not worth the $24 each... More

A Casino with trimmings, Darwin dress code is basic. Thongs, shorts acceptable. Not a lot of choices for lunch, more Restaurants open for dinner. Staff very friendly...nice appearance to entrance. Hotel next door, 2 pools to choose from. It is just a Casino, nothing special.

Cockroaches in the room, was reported and staff asked why we did not ask them to spray poison. There were 5 kids in the room, including a baby. Overall this place is very badly... More

I recently stayed here. The rooms were adequate and a bit old and very cold air conditioner. I purchased and paid extra for a 'sea view' room which really was only a sea glimpse (see picture) so very disappointed and misleading. I had an issue one night as the shower head wouldn't stay up so I couldn't have a shower.... More

Skycity is a hotel resort of two halves. Firstly there is the Hotel which has been around quite a while and has seen better days. But it is cheap. Then there is the Lagoon / Resort. Only a few years old with some of the better hotel rooms in Australia and to the best of my knowledge, the best in... More

The room, a seaview suite, was adequate. It was comfortably large but had minor distractions such as an air conditioning drip on the tiles by the bedroom door. A genuine slip hazard which we covered with a bath mat. We live 130kms drive from Darwin and need to come into the city for Christmas Day, and stay Christmas Eve and... More

We enjoyed our stay at SkyCity. It is the only resort style hotel in Darwin from what I could see, baeutiful location on the beach front and with some great pools. The property must be a couple of decades old and is showing its age a little but it is reasonably well maintained. The hotel is 3 or 4 kms... More

The hotel is a little dated but still comfortable and very nice. This is a great place if you don't intend on going anywhere (because you don't need to). Two beautiful pools, one attached the hotel with views of the beach and another lagoon style pool in the resort section. All of the restaurants in the Casino and great and... More

Not that bad, just very dated. I felt the room was average in terms of style and amenities and the bathroom had clearly seen better decades. I think there us now much better in Darwin. Price wise, probably OK value for money. I had the breakfast buffet while I was there - not good. Not over priced but the food... More

Had an opportunity to holiday without the teens. so searched out a last minute type holiday for a few days - Darwin. Had a look at various places to stay and SO glad we chose SkyCity. Comfortable, clean, to die for pools - important to us- restaurants and bars on tap. Oh, and the Casino of course- not so important... More
