Stayed here for a week in June and probably wouldn't choose it again, unless there are some repairs done. The whole place looks like it needs a little love and care, and inside the rooms, they could do with a coat of paint, if only to get rid of the cigarette smell...it is a non-smoking hotel, but it wasn't always...

A friend and I booked a last minute apartment with Alatai for a night and it was great. Close to the city, yet somewhat quiet and private as well. A good last minute booking yet we still managed to spare an entire apartment with two rooms to ourselves which we thought was good. We went out that night till late... More

We stayed here as an 'extended' family. We had two, two bedroom apartments. Upon first inspection, one of our rooms ( Room 105) had a leaking air con that flooded the carpet in the bedroom and smelt damp. Fortunately, reception moved our family members to 106 which although didn't have wet carpet smelt of cigerette smoke and damp. Otherwise our... More

Think twice before you book Alatai Apartments Darwin. This was our last stop on a fantastic trip from Broome to Darwin and we were expecting a lovely end to our holiday. Didn't get it!! Our room we were told at Alatai was "upgraded", but receptionist said we were not to use the second bedroom! The furniture was threadbare, there were... More

We are sorry to hear that your stay at our apartments did not meet your expectations. The reason we upgraded you from studio to 2-bedroom apartment due to overbooked by the agent. We apologies for any misunderstanding for our receptionist advised you not to use the second bedroom. She might have thought that your original booking was a studio, 2nd... More

Way too expensive for what you get! while it is mostly clean (kitchen cleanliness is problematic with too many nooks and corners - way too "bug-friendly") what you get is not worth the price tag. pool and picnic area is quite "uninviting" Very limited opening hours of the reception, esp. on weekends Breakfast is very limited The two available internet...

Just stayed at Alatai Apartments for 4 nights, it was clean and tidy with a new TV, new fridge and a reasonably comfortable bed. It was serviced every day except Sunday and the staff were friendly and helpful. No noisy guests although the whole place was full, the swimming pool got a lot of use but not after hours. Really...

I have just stayed in one of Alatai Apartments for a week. Room was great, clean and tidy, and maintained on a daily basis, except for Sundays which was fine. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet unit. Short walk to town. Would definately recommend it.

The location is good, being only a short walk to the centre of town. However the cleanliness of the rooms leaves a lot to be desired. My husband and I who were travelling with our 9 month old son, were told that the room was only going to be cleaned once in our 8 night stay. Which we could have... More
