To start with the location, it was perfect. Check in was smooth and taken care of. The room was amazing, the view surpassed everything else and amenities were upto the mark. Housekeeping was upto the mark in terms of cleanliness and placement of amenities. However, I feel that complimentary wifi option should be available for HHonours guest who book directly... More

Stayed for three days Dec15. Room need a bit of tidying. Our room had the sea view. Food very expensive. Not much on dinner menu. Normal breakfast was served.Easy location to shops and restaurants.Swimming pool was great to cool down. Children running around wet in the foyer and dripping water every where. Notified reception. Did not take much notice.

We booked the Milner... More

Our room had 2 double beds and 1 chair. Guess what, someone had to sit on the bed. Rooms are a bit outdated. I notice every comment on here says the same. Loved the stains on the carpet. They must have a huge water bill as you have to run the shower quite a bit to get hot water, and... More

Room way too hot. COLD water in shower too hot to use after two minutes. Chef 'too tired' to make buffet breakfast. Extra charges for everything including WiFi. This hotel is just a shadow of it's former self. I will not stay there again.

One star is for the friendly check in service at 6am. The other star is for the great pool. And if I could, half a star for the comfy beds. Not the same hotel we stayed in 4 years ago when it was The Holiday Inn Esplanade. The hotel in general is so out of date. I especially thought the... More

Good size rooms, a bit dated but the rooms are a good size and that make up a bit for that. The pool area is great and the temperature of the pool is also very nice. The overall common area are showing signs of needing to be updated but the location is good. Lots of places to eat near by.... More

Arriving at the Double Tree by Hilton on the Esplanade in Darwin you are immediately wrapped in the cool of the building, the cleanliness of the foyer and the happy and smiling front office staff.
