A good budget hotel experience. I could sleep well after arriving at 7 am in the morning from Asia to an Antarctic Melbourne which could muster no more than a frigid 1oC. The staff went the extra mile in accommodating my special request for an early room and even looked after an extraneous bag for a week. I could depart... More

Hotel very convenient to airport right behind McDonalds walking distance to all terminals. The room I stayed in the reverse cycle air conditioner didn't work too good and the bathroom (shower and toilet) was very tiny but alright for a one night stay. There is no hairdryer ladies so make sure to either take one or ring and ask if... More

Like the hotel, I am going to keep this review simple: Travelled in May 2015 and stayed here overnight as my Darwin flight got in at 9pm and my Mum wasn't arriving from Tassie until 10am the next day. I was anxious about the automated check in prior to arriving as I was getting there outside of reception hours. Thankfully... More

For an overnight within easy walk of airport, this hotel is perfectly adequate. It was quiet, comfortable and clean. You could ask no more of a budget hotel. The check-in was easy and fast and staff were helpful.

I chose this hotel because of the cost, pure and simple, i was only going to be in it for a few hours after getting of a plane at 1AM. The Downside is its a bit further from the airport than you may think(says 500 meters) and the signs could be clearer, or was i tired? Directions are out of... More

Best thing about a room is a comfy bed and that it was ...excellent pillows. Better than some more expensive motels we have stayed at. Clean and presentable. Downside need a lift for people with a former of disability

Booked this hotel for a very short stay after a long international flight. I had read the reviews but as my stay was for 10 hours I thought I could cope with the low expectations. It is very much a budget hotel, although I'm not sure the price could be considered budget. The room itself was clean but quite small... More

The friendly staff members at the reception were the only saving grace! The rooms were terrible - forcibly modified demountable structures reminiscent of prison cells! I've stayed in 'budget hotels' all over the country and around the world. This was less 'hotel' and more 'emergency shelter with (dated) attempts at cosmetic cover up'. If you're going to call it a... More
