Great location - especially for the Darwin festival; most events were in walking distance. Well appointed and comfortable rooms, responsive staff. As other reviews note though, the pool is too cold for comfort.

Hi HoJo-Guest and thank you for choosing to stay with us on your recent trip to the top end during the Darwin Festival. We're pleased that you enjoyed our great location, facilities and service. Things are starting to warm up now as we move into the summer months which makes the swimmming pool a refreshing haven to escape to. Thanks... More

Stayed here last weekend for 2 nights. Flight into Darwin was early and the very friendly at reception checked us in early. Our 1 bedroom apartment was on the 18th floor and the views were stunning. Room was very clean. Very handy to the Waterfront and Mitchell st where all the restaurants are and just enough distance away from noise.... More

I stayed for two nights in September. The studio room was spacious, clean and modern. The air conditioning, ceiling fan and dehumidifier were all turned on, so the room was comfortable when I arrived. The room had a balcony with table and two chairs and a nice view out to the harbour. The room was over A$300 per night and... More

Hi traveller388 and thank you for posting.

It wasn't a great start when a credit card surcharge was applied to an already expensive room. You pay at the beginning of the stay, not the end. In my room there was a sliding door missing from the cupboard and the hot water in the shower lasted about 2 minutes. Half the TV stations had poor reception. I didn't... More

The central location is great. You can walk to restaurants etc. We have 3 children so the 2Br apartment was fantastic. The pool was very cold in July. One massive issue was the bed in the main bedroom had not been changed!!! Fair to say we were not impressed. The staff quickly changed it with clean sheets however we were... More

Stayed here for four nights on 18th floor with old friend. Room spacious with all the facilities we needed, including washing machine and drier. Clean, quiet and comfortable. We didn't eat there, except for our final evening, but found a handy Coles (like UK Asda) and equippped ourselves for breakfasts, snacks,wine, etc., and ate out the rest of the time.... More
