You could only rate it highly for 2 reasons - perceived value and the wonderful nature of the Irish girl at the front desk - she tried her hardest to help you.
The blurb says all rooms have been refurbished but it is still a dated basic motel that suffers badly from noise.
It is on a very busy highway so a room at the front will suffer from normal road noise but to make it worse, it is close to the flight path and there seems to be no curfew in Darwin - planes fly all night seemingly.
The rooms are small and basic - little room to move about.
For $175 for a back room (larger) I expected more.

We have just completed a full refurbishment of all our 41 rooms. They now have a sleek and modern look with just a splash of the tropics. In the next year we will complete phase two of our four phase project,this will eventually see the addition of 40 plus cabins, a meeting room, a second tropical pool, a hair and beauty salon and an 18 hole minigolf course.
