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

OK, I can't really RECOMMEND this place because it's nothing special, but from the reviews I thought it would be miserable. Not sure what's going on because the place is professionally run and, for a Quality Inn, it's perfectly acceptable. Rooms were comfortable, décor was reasonably modern, beds were fine, hot water, etc. Pool area was OK; not great, but... More

Despite some dreadful reviews, our room was spacious, clean and well equiped. Perhaps we were in one of the recently upgraded rooms (we were on the 6th floor), but we were very pleasantly surprised and very happy with our room. We booked on Wotif and the rates were reasonable. The hotel is in a very convenient location.

I recently stayed at this hotel as I was in Darwin for a conference and I had no choice as to where I stayed. It was possibly the worst place I have ever stayed in. There was a constant smell of mould and rising damp. The aircon in my room wasn't functioning and after I requested it to be fixed,... More

I stayed here with work, and would never suggest anyone stay here. Room was on the ground floor, the in room facilities poor, had to request 4 different irons till one actually worked. The hotel itself appeared very run down, with a rough workers bar down stairs. Given its location just out of the city, its a pretty dark walk... More

We booked in February and we were guaranteed a bungalow room, I confirmed this twice again before our arrival, upon which we were advised we were on the fourth floor. The room was clean and the linen white and very clean. The bathroom was poorly lit and ventilated. Cleaning staff did arrive from 8.00am onward. We found the staff pleasant... More

First of all, our booking was made 3 months prior. I confirmed the booking over the phone 3 times over the 3 months before our arrival date. I had confirmation numbers and all. We arrived only to be told they were full and didn't have our booking. The staff were hopeless and were very rude and obnoxious towards us: they... More

Arrived at 1.30am to check in only to be told they didn't have our booking. Luckily we had our email confirmation as proof. We were told they could fit us in for the night, but needed to find a room for they rest of our stay. Terrible service, we had confirmed twice and they still lost our booking. Room when... More

On a recent trip to Darwin we stayed at this property. What a dive! Forget about its name "quality" because you won't find any here. From the moment we checked in, it looked like a workers camp, with dirty rowdy men, congregating out the front of reception. After unpacking we went down to the bar for a drink, only to... More
