Palms City Resort is a little run down, but that's a not a significant problem in my book. It has a great location and staff were helpful. Our cabin was entirely comfortable, had good facilities and I'd return any day.

Booked in for two nights and decided to stay another night which they gave us a special rate. We stayed in villas which had a balcony and BBQ and very private, rooms a little small with good size bathroom. This hotel is close to Mitchell Street and Smith Street which have plenty of restaurants and bars. Also short walk to... More

As per my booking request we stayed in a villa next to the pool which was lovely. Staff were friendly as were all of the other guests we chatted to whilst lazing around the beautiful pool area. Saturday night there was a lot of noise from the pub but with the fan on we didnt hear a thing when we... More

Had a superior room which although needs updating was very clean. Had a lovely balcony overlooking lush garden. The pool was fantastic, staff wonderful and location perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 5 nights, 3 of which were for a conference at the convention centre and 2 for leisure. Villa was small but clean and well maintained. Bed was comfortable and kitchenette great [plug cords could have been a bit longer!] Veranda with own barbeque was a bonus. Fabulous pool, wish we'd had more time to use it! As... More

We stayed in one of the villas which we think looked much better than the standard motel rooms. However we wouldn't call them villlas - they are hexagonal and very nice with a verandah but the rooms are quite compact not like a real villa. As they are all semi detached and the bed heads are against the adjoining room... More

Location is great with Mitchell st just around the corner & esplanade directly across the road. Lots of Palm trees & small clean pool. Rooms are basic but clean. $250 night was certainly cheaper than the other big hotels on the esplanade.

Needed a hotel near the convention centre, but without exorbitant cost of much Darwin accommodation. It is not 5 star, but good value for money. 10 minutes walk to Waterfront & Convention Centre, 5 min to city shops. Very clean, well-serviced duplex unit, had sink/fridge/microwave/toaster, which meant I could easily access a supermarket in the next street to get 'supplies'... More

I had high hopes for a great location in Darwin however was disappointed. The room I was given was as far from anything I could get an backed onto the Darwin Hotel. The bin full of stubbies gets emptied at 6am in the morning and people sit right outside your door having beers on small tables and chairs for two... More
