Staff were very obliging and polite, I booked at the last minute and they were happy to discount the room, room was clean although very dated. Location good given the price, I was in room 207 and it was quiet bar the odd door slam. the other residents were working class, I should note that this hotel is probably preferred... More

We stayed at this hotelin May and found it a little out of the way althoughit was still a walkable distance to. Darwin's city centre. The room was a reasonable size and quite clean. Unfortunately first impressions of this hotel were not good as the reception area is very tired looking. The pool was quite small. The restaurant was also... More

I've stayed twice at this hotel. The first was in a 'city view' room on level 3. All good. Spacious, clean and quiet. I think I got it a bit cheaper than normal so it was good value for money. The second time was a few days later in a 'çabana' room next to the pool. This room was in... More

Hotel very dated but rooms quite good for cost although I would not recommend the restaurant or either breakfast, lunch or dinner as very is very average and often only just warm and not at a cheap price.

Three nights in this unfriendly and unfortunately smelly hotel. If we hadn't prepaid we would have moved. Internet charges were extortionate and wifi signal was very poor. There were some suspicious stains on the carpet in corridor to our room. Only redeeming factor bottle shop in site.

There is no denying that this is not a five star or even a four star hotel. However, i stay here sometimes when I visit Darwin for work and try not to blow all my profits on accommodation. Our room was fine. The two beds- a double and a single- made sleeping better after we changed from a one bedded... More

We had a very unpleasant experience here in April. Our room was booked on the internet as a mid range hotel and the room was priced at $180 and our great price was $140. This was booked 4 months before arriving. A friend checked out the hotel and was told the price was $90 a night. Big difference! We checked... More

This is the worst 'hotel' that we have ever stayed in - receptionist was rude and unhelpful, the room smelled of stale cigarettes and there was no lock on our door. Unfortunately we hadn't read the reviews of this place on Trip Advisor before booking and paying - no wonder it was the only hotel available in Darwin on the... More

Stayed here for 11 nights, in early 2013, during a very dry spell of weather. The hotel is around a 15 minute walk from the main town centre and has a rooftop restaurant and a basement bar area, where pool can be played. The hotel, seemed to be the base for a number of manual workers and/or miners. Our room,... More
