I found these apartments to be clean, the staff friendly, and the building in a convenient location only a minor walk from the CBD. Woolworths and Chemist is right next door and it is a 3 minute walk to restaurants and bars on the main street. The apartments are a little older, and naturally a little dated. The bed was... More

I had been involved with the Advance Hotel from October 2014 until Feb 2015. Myself and my crew thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The customer service from all the staff was exceptional. The staff not only treated you like a customer but treated you like family. The rooms were great, the facilities and the proximity to everything you need in Darwin... More

I stayed at Advance Serviced Apartments Darwin in February (1st - 7th 2015) following my excellent experience there in September last year. My trip in September involved a family holiday which was brilliant, and I returned in early February for a work trip. My recent experience was equally as impressive as the previous one. The location is perfect, it is... More

We booked this meeting room for a group that we were running in the local community. Nice and bright, clean and well organised. Staff were really attentive and eager to help throughout the week. Had access to utilities like tv/ dvd/ whiteboard etc. Tea / coffee/ water/ sweets/ pens and paper all provided and neatly set up each morning ready... More

Darwin was my first destination in Australia, flying in from Singapore and Advance certainly prepared me with what I discovered Australian hospitality to be: Pathetic. The location is good and close to everything. The staff at reception is very attentive, especially a young Indian girl named Farella, she was a true delight and always friendly. The rooms however were very... More

Dear PhillipArgyle Thank you for your contribution to our review page. Needless to say it is disheartening to read such a negatively worded review, since we as a team do try hard to deliver on our promises. It is also disappointing to read from your other Australian reviews that Australia and Australians as a whole seem to have failed to... More

Not a bad location for the city centre, fairly standard room, check in / out was simple, however there was no ambiance whatsoever. I didn't see a restaurant and wasn't advised of one in the hotel. though there are plenty of eating places around.

You are not the first to mention that there is no restaurant within Advance Apartments. This is of course true, however we do have a number of local... More

Very central location. Near woolies and close to lots of restaurants and places to go out. The only thing that would have improved my stay is if they vacuumed every second or third day. We have a messy eater and the carpet ended up being filthy, with only a dust pan and brush to clean it up with. Also, not... More

I stayed here for one night business trip. Check in was very efficient and staff were super nice and helpful. The room was very basic with quite uncomfortable bed I was getting the noise from the main street during night and was woken up by the baby and people next door. I could clearly hear the husband asking his wife... More

Stayed here for about 5 days. Maybe there weren't a lot of people on our floor, as we didn't find it noisy at all. Spacious apartment - plenty of room for us to pile our camping stuff in the corner behind the dining table. Bathroom amenities clean. Shower was horrible - absolutely no pressure. Took about 20 minutes longer to... More

self catering / self service type apartments. very basic, and no evening meals available. Ok cafe next door for breakfast / lunch, however you will need to walk to cafe / hotel strip. Bed was comfortable, however room and corridors noisy, paper thin walls. Staff helpful. Well located just of the main entertainment precinct. Not recommended for business travel.
