At the low end of the market. You can hear the water running in other rooms, the fan was wonky and noisy and the fridge made noise all night. Having said that, it was clean and bed was pretty good, but don't go there if you're looking for creature comforts.

Older building/rooms but clean and adequate for the price and 20 walk to Darwin CBD. Staff were polite and helpful but if I was travelling to Darwin again in the future I would probably look for accomodations closer to the centre of the Darwin CBD

I've just lost a lot of money due to their NO REFUND policy - and I cancelled weeks beforehand. Very disappointed. To be clear, this is my own fault for not checking the fine print, but this seems very harsh. I gave plenty of warning.

Our stay at Alatai Holiday Apartments was pleasant. The location was 10-15 minutes walking distance to the city center where you can find food and supermarkets. Minimal daily housekeeping by changing towels, making beds and empty bins. Shower need to be fixed and there wasn't any service lift. Therefore, you need to consider going up the stairs daily if you... More

Loved the massive lagoon pool in the centre of the buildings that you look down on from your room. Also loved the facilities in the three bedroom apartments. The laundry came in handy! The staff were friendly and even though the hotel is a little out of the way, it was definitely worth the price. Would recommend to families if... More

For once on this trip we booked here without checking on TripAdvisor first - not something I'd normally recommend. However this time I'm glad we did, because based on the reviews we probably wouldn't have stayed here. I don't know whether management has changed or just got its act together, but we had a very pleasant stay in a good... More

This was a very decent place for the price. The apartment was spotlessly clean. It was comfortable, with everything you actually need (no 'extras' or finishing touches - but it is cheap). A few reviews mention noise, but I didn't notice. I wear earplugs for bed though, but still didn't hear any noise before putting them in around midnight each... More

Had basic things like a fridge, microwave etc and handy too were the washing machine and clothes dryer. Has both fans and air conditioning. The green Chilli restaurant was OK but expensive for what it was. Some rooms are for permanent stays(workers) but in general it was quiet. The TV had shocking reception. Lucky to have a different channel working... More

We stayed one night at this older style motel. The facility is badly in need of an update although everything was clean and worked well. There were cooking facilities in our room but no place to eat. We enjoyed the Indian/Thai restaurant that is associated with the motel; not cheap, but the food was good. The location is quite close... More

We got a great price on what we thought was going to be a reasonable sized studio apartment, instead we got a two bedroom apartment with a great lounge and dining area, a washing machine and tumble dryer and the swimming pool was great. Only downfall was that the Wi-Fi was only available in the reception area. However everything else... More
