Darwin at the end of the dry season is very humid and hot as the wet is due to start. We wanted a tropical feel but within walking distance to everything. We got it at the Palms City Resort staying in a self contained bungalow not attached to anyone else. It had great a/c and ceiling fans, tv, cute clean... More

We stayed here twice, on our way to and from Kakadu. We weren't looking for luxury and we didn't get it. Our room (both times) was a basic motel style with outdoor corridors: two levels and no lifts. The room was the definition of basic; not as nice as the lobby and outside would lead you to believe. There are... More

We stayed at the Palms for three nights before getting on the Ghan. It is well located, quiet and clean. It is not a new hotel but seems to be kept up very well. It is within walking distance to a good beach and he downtown core of Darwin. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going on the Ghan... More

The villa was great, it was clean and tidy. The resort is still close to shops and bars and restaurants but also opposite to bicentenial park. Staff were very friendly and prompt, nothing was a problem for them. Would recommend staying there mto anyone travelling to Darwin.

It's a lovely hotel with amazing bungalows situated downtown. I found it really quiet, clean and safe. The place is really nice with a kind of mini tropical jungle on bungalows side. The crew is amazing, really friendly and always happy to give nice advice. We stayed at this place before going and after coming back from Kakadu and Litchfield... More

The garden villa we had was great, clean, lots of hot water and pressure in shower, a great thing after a week in Bali. Excellent location not too close to the noise in Mitchell st, but only a short walk to get there. Friendly and helpful staff - will definitely stay there again when in town.

The location is very good. On the Esplanade, opposite Bicentennial Park for a nice walk; and 10 minutes walk from down-town Cavenagh st with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Check-in was prompt, but although we booked months in advance asking for 2 adjoining 'Garden Bungalow villas' we were given non-adjoining ones, and could not be moved. So that was a... More

Located close to town centre. Close to main bus terminal if you want to use buses to go to the markets etc. Quiet location, while we were there at least. Breakfast was very good. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again when in Darwin.
