The hotel is old, having been around since the mid 80s under a different name. It looks like this particular hotel is in some serious need of maintenance in the rooms and hallways. If I were to stay here again, I would seriously have to think if it were worth it for the price.

I have stayed here 4 times now. The pool area is very nice, with adjacent bar. Staff more or less friendly, rooms have been neglected, feels like an 80s time warp. My room had blistering walls, bathroom shower floods the floor and does not drain, and wash basin cracked badly. An annoying issue is the room keys stop working during... More

We stayed here on a business trip. After being in the Palmerston Sunset retreat (avoid as the best thing about that place is the name) we decided to move on and although we couldn't check in for a few hours we found the service to be friendly and professional and the cookies were yummy my partner told me, in fact...

Overall it is a nice hotel, helpful staff with good food. Only the rooms are dated, need updating (think 1980's). Would be better if the internet was free, also not much in the minibar. At most was a chocolate bar and some drinks.

I would give this hotel 3.5 if tripadvisor allowed the extra half mark. Formerly the Holiday Inn, the style of the hotel still bore all the hallmarks of its previous owners. While the decor is mid 90s (with a definite Holiday Inn vibe), the room we had was very well maintained and incredibly comfortable. It may be a bit dated... More

The hotel lobby and restaurant were clean and inviting however as soon as you get to the elevator, that is where the dated facilities begin. - Most of the time only one of the three elevators were working and then that was slow. - My room service tray sat outside my room for nearly 20 hours - there was mold...

This would have one been a jewel in the crown of Darwin, and it seems nothing has been done to it since it was built. Tired sun bleached stained decor, mouldy bathrooms, forget the harbour view, the windows are so filthy you can hardly see through them. If this is part of the Hilton Chain they must be letting Paris's... More

We stayed at this hotel in Feb 14 following our return from Katherine and the earlier start of our NT trip where we stayed at the Hilton hotel. For holiday feel we both thought this hotel was a far better choice than the Hilton which was more suited to a business trip. The pool at the esplanade was large with... More
