A good hotel is an essential part of an enjoyable visit. It was beneficial for the hotel to store our excess baggage during our 2 day trip to Kakadu Natural Park. This was done very efficiently and without hassle

This hotel is very well located, it is opposite a park looking overlooking the sea. there is a walkway through the hotel foyer to Mitchell Street. The staff on reception were very polite and helpful. The hotel is in need of a refurbishment although there were some rooms on our level being renovated. The buffet breakfast was adequate and it... More

A very comfortable and relaxing experience. The staff are very friendly and make sure that your requirements are met. The conference facilities are up to date and the hall itself very spacious, well lit and convenient for holding a sizeable business event.

Poor service from pool bar area, for 3 days they lacked the same ingredients to make cocktails, and they were very slow in making them, need to train their staff on how to make drinks, the rooms were clean but in need of renovations, bathrooms very 80's. Bed very comfortable. Gym also good.

I arrived after a long drive from down south and found that the ramp was a long way from the entrance to the hotel and so I had to drag my bags much further than expected. However, upon checking in I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The room was quite spacious with a queen size bed a... More

My Daughter in law and I stayed eight nights in in room containing two double beds, did have a connecting (locked) door to next room. Drawback, could hear the person next door talking on his phone and presume he could hear us, probably the door between was the reason. Room was a little dated, room was clean, beds very comfortable,... More

Excellent location but the hotel room was "tired" with leaky shower wall and toilet. There was no hair dryer though evidence that one used to be attached to the wall. Breakfast offering had virtually no variation from day to day. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

Could not ask for a better location with access to open spaces and views however the price tag is unjustified given the average service and age of facilities. Car parking is also questionable as the area is not secure and access to the hotel from the carpark is not straight forward.

It would be nice to see more vegetarian options on the menu. We did like what was available. The menu was one of the reasons I chose your accommodation. Loved the free newspapers at our door, the late checkout and the complimentary safe parking. The staff were lovely, that was the best part. Thank you

Good and easy check in, staff were efficient and helpful. Our kids were surprised with the warm cookie that they got on booking in. Rooms were okay, but starting to be a little out dated. Bathroom fixtures also getting out dated. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast, such a wide variety. Kids loved making their own juice varieties.
