It's right at the heart of Darwin! Walking distance to the parliament house and the library, the WWII oil storage tunnel, and the Mitchell street. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and spacious, and clean and tidy. The only thing was that there were a lot of very tiny ants on the table...it was OK... More

Had a great stay here over Easter, I would almost go to say that the Garden bungalows are a little small though. We ended up staying in a motel room on our last night and I found they had a lot more room! I thought we would sit and use the veranda and the BBQ but we ended up eating... More

Wonderful staff, very helpful at all times. Nothing was a problem for them and we experienced friendly professionals from the front counter staff to the housekeeping staff . The rooms were very clean, comfortable and spacious. Added bonus was the fact that many restaurants are within easy walking distance and the Darwin Hotel is just around the corner. Will stay...

My wife and I stayed at the Palms for four nights. The location was perfect central to everything and just across the road from a fantastic pathway for walking each morning. We stayed in a villa surrounded by plants which was so different from a normal hotel. The only downside was the villas were a tad too small. Staff were... More

They made us feel special. Ask for the rooms by the pool. We got a free breakfast. This place has a tropical feel , you feel like you are miles away from the city. But you are in walking distance to most of the bars. Loved our stay.

I was very happy in this hotel for the weekend because it was clean, quiet, and we had a separate bed for my baby daughter at no extra charge. She loved the pool as well, and really didn't want to leave. It is an easy walk from here to the Mall, the Mitchell Centre, and the Waterfront.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It was quite warm but the aircon was a saviour. Rates were very good for the location and the breakfast was more than enough. Staff were extremely helpful, letting us check in early following our flight..Only area for improvement would be the wifi did no textend to our villa. However we will definitely stay here... More
