Stayed for three nights in a ground floor unit. The motel is in a quiet residential street in the suburb of Parap. By car 10-15 minutes to the centre of Darwin. The bed was comfy and the blockout curtains kept the morning light put for a good sleep in! The motel is old built after Cyclone Tracey but in good... More

This motel is easy to get to - one street from the Stuart Highway. It is close to the city centre and we found it an easy walk to Mindil Beach. We chose the motel because it had outdoor parking - we have a high vehicle so we avoid the hotels in the city centre that have under cover parking.... More

We had a double room on the ground floor. Although the premises is a bit "tired", it was clean and adequate. It was obviously suffering from a lack of custom, as there were few guests, but it was in the off season. The people running the establishment were wonderful, and were very helpful. Its location close to the Parap shopping... More

Friendly helpful staff, clean and great rates. Location is perfect for Mindil markets and sunset. Close to CBD. Staff could not do enough to make our stay great. They were good at recommending things to see and do and also with car hire got us a great value place to rent a car.

I am a solo traveller. It is a cheaper motel out of Darwin central at Parap. Close to Parap shopping and markets. It is an old motel so it has history. The room was clean and had and has the basic ammenities. The only hassle was there is no lift so if you are loaded with baggage. (Like I was!)... More

The rooms are clean, freshly painted, have nice comfortable bedding as well as a fridge, coffee/tea making.The room I had also had a small balcony with... More

Dennis and Tennille were very helpful and made our stay very pleasant. The motel is dated but is clean and has the basic necessities needed for a comfortable stay including free wi fi, which does work. Being less than 10 minutes from the Casino, Airport and city centre makes the Paravista's location very handy.

Good access to the airport and the casino makes the Paravista an ok stopover. Very basic and dated but well cared for and good parking. Easy late check in. and a balcony if you want fresh air. Reasonable price in an expensive town
