Our first stay was on the 1st floor in a lovely large room with a kitchenette and balcony with table and chairs. The room was very clean. Our only complaints, minor ones, was that there was only one bedside table with a light. No room beside the bed for second bedside table. The second minor complaint was that the bathroom... More

Had a hotel style room over the v8 racing weekend in Darwin, The room was clean and comfortable, and the reception open 24 hours which we needed. Close to the shopping and easy pick up for tours. Not sure why the bathroom had a water saving shower head.

We had two visits here , before and after a Camping safari. The staff were accommodating. The room was clean. The refrigerator with its jug of chilled water was most appreciated. We were able to self cater for our breakfast. The Bicentennial Gardens over the road was a great place for an evening stroll.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Palms City Resort....friendly helpful staff, well maintained apartment and very convenient location. We were able to enjoy a bbq and had all we needed to be self sufficient.

Booked an executive villa and got one with an outside jacuzzi. Very clean and well equipped. Excellent shower. Good kitchen facilities. Electric BBQ on the shady verandah. Only downside was that it was immediately next to the road, so a bit noisy.

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The room had two beds and a balcony with table and chairs where you could have your coffee in the mornings. The bathroom was good with nice towels and toiletries. The receptionist was welcoming and cheerful when we arrived. We didn't eat here but had breakfast at the Cafe 21 on Mitchell street... More

Stayed in a bungalow in February for over a week. Very enjoyable with electric BBQ on the verandah which we used most nights and cleaned every day. Pool was clean, but very warm due to the wet season no doubt. Cleaning staff were very kind and did an excellent job. Very close to shops, bars and restaurants. Everyone in Darwin... More

Clean, comfortable units. Friendly, helpful staff available 24/7. (Some of the units on the road side can get a bit of traffic noise, but offset by having personal, secluded outdoor spa!) Reception staff good at tour suggestions. Small, family owned business...they proudly told us they had just won a NT tourism award the week we were there.

We went up (Townsville) for my nieces wedding (reception at the Boat Club which was orsum) and could not fault our Bungalow. My sister and her husband and one of our friends also stayed at the resort. Staff super friendly, nothing was too much trouble. They even clean your bbq plate after you have used it (every day just about).... More

Recently spent 3 nights at Palm City. Darwin is an expensive place for accommodation & after looking at many places we settled on Palm City. We stayed in a small villa towards the back of the property. It was on the small side, but much better than staying in a high rise hotel in my opinion. The room had a... More
