I was upgraded to an executive bungalow room, it was good to be able to park next to room. The room was very clean, and comfortable. The rom included coffee plunger and coffee to go with it. Decent size TV and comfortable lounge, there was also a private deck with ceiling fan. I only ate dinner at the resort, and... More

We stayed for 1 night at this 'resort' in a family room with our 18 month old, and 3 year old after arriving at the airport late at night. We felt that our room was completely overpriced for what it was. More like a motel room, definitely not a resort room as you would expect. We stayed on the ground... More

This hotel or resort charge you more than other similar resort style hotels but it is not up to the standard you expect for your money. They gave me executive villa which was essentially a self contained cabin. The facility inside cabin was average. The fridge unit was defrosting automatically and some how the water was spilled on the floor.... More

We arrived on the red eye from Sydney, so this was a great place to stay being only 400 metres from the airport with a free shuttle. We stayed for 5 nights in a family room. It was clean and had enough room for the 4 of us. The grounds are well maintained and the pool and surrounds are a... More

Our accomodation in this resort was in one of the bungalows, which was situated away from the pool, reception area, restaurant and bars. It was mostly quiet but we could hear planes arriving and leaving in the early hours of the morning. The bungalows, which are quite dated, think seventies decor, are self contained but serviced daily. Ours had a... More

The title of "Resort" is a little misleading. The reception area is open plan and very welcoming but then you go through to the rooms and you realise your in a Airport motel. I stayed here for a couple of nights on business and the place is fit for that purpose. My room was clean but small and dated. I... More

Thank you for the review, we certainly have a variety of room categories ranging from our superior queen room, to our family rooms, bungalow and resort suite. On your next visit I would be happy to allocate you an alternative room type to allow for a more comfortable experience for you. All the best More

I was hesitant to book this venue as I had read several of the negative reviews. However I went out on a limb as it appeared to be very convenient for my short stay and unusual flight configuration. Can I say in my humble opinion I was just spoiled with a great stay on one of the executive bungalows. I... More

The accommodation is fine nice clean toilet and room is comfy however the pillows are not. I ordered burger and chips at the restaurant and the meat was off! Chips were oily. I think if you want to stay more than 2 days, then you need to find yourself a place to eat good food. Otherwise bring your own food.

Thank you for the review, I am concerned reading your comments regarding the meal you had in our restaurant. I have discussed this with our Executive Chef and I assure you we comply with all the food safety and hygiene standards. With regards to our beef patties these are ordered as a bulk product and we have not received any... More

Booked this hotel at last minute.. Thought it would be okay due to 4 star rating. 1. Decor very dated, absolutely no style. 2. Room not clean. The beds were made etc but cobwebs on window sills, behind bathroom door filthy, shower screen very watermarked. 3. No room service - call and collect only, and the menu for that was... More

Thank you for the review, I apologise that your stay was not up to our usual high standards, I will be sure to address these with our housekeeping department as clearly this is not acceptable and not our usual standards.

Stayed one night at its twin room upstairs. We arrived at Darwin Airport at 1am in the early morning. Then we used its convenient hotel shuttle bus to get to the hotel. A warm and friendly reception checked us in. We were very impressed by the hotel’s tropical, open air lobby; the swimming pool…looks like a great resort to us.... More

Thank you for the review, it is disappoint to read that a couple housekeeping concerns have hindered what should have been a comfortable stay. I will be investigating this with our Executive Housekeeper on how a basic task was missed. Should you be returning to Darwin, please contact myself directly and I will ensure for a much more comfortable stay.... More
