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.

My wife and I stayed here on 2 separate visits recently. Check in was uneventful though a misunderstanding due to recent change in ownership led to some discussion re the inclusion of 'free parking' that can attract a charge of $10 per day. All sorted and checked in to our spacious apartment style set up with kitchette, bathroom, lounge/dining, bedroom... More

Easy going staff, no frills no problems just simple but functional rooms. Could be seen as expensive if your by yourself but sharing, no problem at all. The rooms vary from having an ensuite to a shared main bathroom. I wasnt sure if the price changed between the two nights or not

The reception and housekeeping staff were professional and of course friendly. The 2-bed apartment extremely comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend Advance Serviced Apartments. I appreciated the box of Belgian chocolates and welcome card in the apartment on my arrival after the flight from Sydney!

I have worked as a consultant anthropologist for the last twenty years, and it that role have travelled to most parts of remote Australia, including many visits to the Northern Territory, and for several years my preferred accommodation in Darwin has been the Quest Apartments in Cavenagh St. I flew in from Queensland yesterday to find that they had changed...

I really struggled to choose where to stay in Darwin prior to my visit and after seeing some of the other places I had looked at I was glad I stayed here. Overall my stay was comfortable but there were a few things that I found not so good. The room had everything I needed for my 4 night stay... More

Had 4 nights in a one bedroom apartment. Arrived around 11am and was wrapped to be able to check there and then. Off to a great start. Very clean and well maintained so a very comfortable stay. Only downside was the shower. Shower was over a bath and a bit pokey. Would have no hesitation staying again. The balcony was... More

My husband, daughter (8 years), son (3 years) and I all stayed at Advance Serviced Apartments from Sunday 21 - 28 September 2014. We had an excellent time, especially the children! We had a two-bedroom apartment, with sliding door that opened out into the pool area, which was so convenient and enjoyable for our young children who spent a lot... More

We stayed for 5 nights with friends of ours in a 2 bedroom apartment. Certainly large enough for the four of us the apartment had everything one needs for a stay. Centrally located the apartment was just a short walk to restaurants and shopping so we really couldn't ask for more. The building also has a good sized pool which... More

It was a pleasant experience to be welcomed to the Quest. It was also so easy to access restaurants and many tourist attractions of Darwin. The apartment we had was adequate but showing signs of tiredness. It was good to be in a non smoking building with pool and BBQ area. We were inconvenienced with a very noisy wall air... More
