We enjoyed our stay at Palm City Resort. Modern room, beautiful grounds, friendly & helpful staff. The location was very excellent being close to the waterfront and shops and cafes. We are happy to recommend it & stay there again.

True to its name, this really is a beautiful little resort in the middle of the city of Darwin. We got an excellent price for our stay after our trip on the Ghan, and we were happy to find out that many of our trip-mates were staying at the same hotel as well. We had a ground floor room in...

great location near shops and all kinds of restaurants. Easy to get to and parking is not a problem. Rooms are clean and tidy and the garden bungalow rooms are very relaxing. I stay here two times a year for business, both times for 4 nights... have been doing so for a few years now... will return...

Stay was amazing. We stayed here for 5 nights. And you couldn't even tell we were right in the middle of town, all I could see was Palm trees. The staff were great. The rooms were clean and the pool was gorgeous. Absolutely no complaints

This was in a perfect location, very near shops and restaurants. The garden villas are a little small but have everything you need. It is hidden away from the street so was fairly quiet, despite being so near the main street.

The whole place was compact and not overcrowded. It really is resort style and so convenient to the CBD of Darwin. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would stay there again if I visited Darwin.
