Lower cost(?!) room in an expensive city for accommodation. Room was average but clean and basic. Don't expect anything fancy. Is in walking distance of the city so has convenience. Breakfast in rooftop restaurant with panoramic local views is good value.

The only positive thing about this place is the one really helpful receptionist. Where to start- I paid $180 per night to stay here. My bed was uncomfortable and sagging, no windows or balconies so the place stunk of mould. No exhaust fan in bathroom, both tap and toilet leaked (we told reception about it but no one would fix...

While the hotel looks quite old & dated, I was impressed with the cleanliness of the interior of the hotel & the rooms. The view (on the garden side) is quite lovely & the hotel is located just a short walk away from Mindil Beach Markets. The upstairs restaurant provides a beautiful vantage point to watch those beautiful Darwin sunsets... More

terrible lights. You can't read at the table, as there are no lights near the table. There were two bedlamps, so, in principle, you could read while lying on the bed. Alas, one of the two had a broken bulb, a standard model, but the reception could not replace it. Continental breakfast was advertised with croissants and fruit salad; there... More

On the up side, our room on the first floor was quiet. Unfortunately it was also pretty rank: it smelled like there was either something growing under the carpet or in the air conditioning, or the ghost of many, many years of cigarettes in the carpet. Bathroom was tiny and had no exhaust fan: you could fog up the room... More

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
