We stayed 4 nights. Cost $880 for two of us including continental breakfast. ($220 per nite).
We booked a double room but for some unknown reason were upgraded to a studio which would normally cost more.
We had daily contact with the owners both Janette and Roger, long time Territorians, and this was excellent as they were very generous in sharing their knowledge of the area and were a full bottle on the history of the war and the war museums. We have stayed in other B&Bs were there was barely any contact with the owners. Janette was very helpful, even to the extent of loaning us her Eski and iceblocks when we left Darwin to tour Kakadu for 6 days. Thank you, it made a big difference.
Breakfast was continental and left in our fridge each night but we could choose what we wanted each day, which was much better than some other places we have stayed. We each had the cereal of our choice including muesli and there were full jars of both so we could choose how much we wanted, plus toast with our choice of bread, real marmalade not those horrible small sachets, fresh fruit, and yoghurt. So this was better than many!
The only downside was we didn’t sleep very well and found the bed uncomfortable. There were also quite a few noises that kept waking us up, we sorted these with ear plugs! Also watch out for the low-lying rock placed on the edge of the lawn, we couldn’t see it and clipped our hire car and gained a damage bill.
It was hot while we were there so we didn't walk into town and drove. The house itself is in a surburban street and slightly outside the main Darwin city centre but central to many things.
