Dear Chris B Thank you for you comments and it is great to see that you enjoyed your stay. Our location is perfect, close to the city sights and business district, but able to enjoy the park and harbour directly across from us. Once again Chris B, thank you and we look forward to seeing you again one day soon.... More

Staff went out of their way to help us celebrate a special occasion, the rooms were as described and services provided were too. Parking included in price, and location was fantastic being walking distance to main street and situated right on the esplanade.

we enjoyed our stay at the Double Tree Hilton. Nice on the esplanade and all amenities were very good and found it good value too. Everything central to Darwin as it is not a big town, so you only walk 10-15 mins to go anywhere.

Dear sonya r Thank you for your review and I am delighted that your stay with us was an enjoyable one. Our location is great. Close to the city and all that it has to offer, but far enough away to enjoy the tranquillity of the esplanade and views of the harbour. Once again, thank you and we hope to... More

There is pool, gym and underground parking (get some tokens from reception to exit). The hotel is ideally situated and easy to get to highway. Very good WiFi service. On the negative side, the...

The room was neat and comfortable. The bathroom was a little outdated with older fixtures needing reapir. In room dining was great, however it took 3 days to get the breakfast on time. Great location right on the Esplanade downtown Darwin. Close to everything in the City of Darwin.

The pool area is great, the dinner choices are pretty good, recommend the salt and pepper crocodile. The fitness center is ok as well. From time to time lots of miners staying, using glassware in the pool which isnt great.

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
