We stayed one night in May, expectations were fairly low and met. It's not that there's anything really wrong with the hotel, but things like; only one towel in room, broken cupboard handles, sliding doors tough to open, obvious wear n tear etc were off-putting. The unit was SC, but I'm not sure I'd want to spend more than a... More

After arriving late from a flight we were tired and ready to fall into bed! Upon entering our room we saw cockroaches scatter, dust an inch thick on the bed head and a hideous smell of stale curry/garlic! Needless to say, we spent the next 30 mins cleaning everything! Next was to rearrange the room! We ordered a double room... More

I am rarely so dissatisfied with a hotel that I pursue matters with the company through which it was booked, but this is an exception. We arrived in Darwin a day ahead of schedule, and in order to save a few dollars (it was $30 cheaper than Double Tree by Hilton Esplanade) we booked in here. Being excessively tired from... More

I read all the bad reveiws about this place but I'm not fussy when it comes to places to stay so I thought id give it a chance. All I expect is a bed to sleep in and a shower. The hot water didn't work in the shower though and the sheets on the bed were mouldy! The only thing... More

Please don't do it. I have had to stay here for work four times in the last six years, it is getting progressively worse. My bathroom felt like I was in a horror movie. The light flickered, the tap wouldn't turn off properly and the door made a creepy noise as I shut it. It is quite far away from... More

Work booked me into this one.. then I read the reviews..worried me... Reception lounge had me worried it was old and dirty, I almost cancelled but it was past midnight and the friendly night person was well groomed and friendly. I took a chance. Room was dated, clean and the bed very comfortable, opening window to tiny balcony let the... More

Blatant overuse of the star system. One star at best. Mediocre and dirty rooms, high prices (for what you get). And the rudest staff if you complain. Don't be fooled Go somewhere else. Anywhere else! This has to be the worst place I have stayed anywhere in the world, and I thought I had stayed in some baddies. Worthy of... More

We arrived after a long flight to a dirty room full of German cockroaches. When raised with the staff member he was most unhelpful. Refused to action a refund then and there as it was late at night and needed his manager. Then refused to document we gave him one of the cockroaches we caught. When I took a photo... More

We picked Luma Luma because of the 'kitchen facilities' to try and save some money by cooking breaky ect. Little did we know that their idea of facilities was an old rusted out camping electric stove which looked like it would burn down the room if we turned it on. Our room didn't seem to have been 'maintained' in an... More
