    This is a very dated hotel in need of an upgrade. I came for work and had no reception for my phone in my room so had to make all my calls in the lobby, and the slow internet cost $40 for 2 days of light use. My room had peeling paint and a broken shutter, along with grubby looking... More

    The staff were very friendly and helpful Have just travelled extensively in Europe and never paid for internet connection. $27.50 per day is over the top! Good value for money so as they say you get what you pay for. Had a great sandwich in café but didn't eat as prices were high and the whole hotel lacked any ambience.

    This is our second stay at this hotel and it didn't disappoint. The one thing I really like about this hotel is the bedding. The sheets are soft and the mattress is really comfortable. I actually prefer basic decor. It looks clean and must be easier to maintain. I can't really comment on other Hilton hotels as I haven't stayed... More

    Exceptional staff service and all facilities as advertised-highly recommended. Have stayed multiple times and the standard of service is maintained at all times. Compared to other venues tried in Darwin this premise exceeds all of them and matches any I have stayed nationally in the last 12 months

    The hotel is well situated and rooms clean, comfortable and reasonably modern. The whole hotel though is a bit dated and seen better days. Common areas sadly in need of repair (carpets, walls, lifts, etc). Pleasant pool area. Hefty charges for internet, can't see why that is so these days.

    You get greeted at the reception desk with a really warm, delicious cookie. There were no major problems. I loved my room because I had it all to myself! The house keepers were AMAZING!

    hotel is quite acceptable and functional. Fitout is a bit tired, however very clean and functional. being a bit older, hotel services are a bit noisy. Generous breakfast buffet, nice pool area. Well located near tourist / entertainment / café precinct
