When we checked out, we all overslept until half past 10, proceeded to run to the office and apologize. The woman was... More

If you are looking for a little bit of help outside of office hrs good luck. We had booked by an online business only to be told that we couldn't get in as no one was there. Then our keys wouldn't work and still no one around to help. Room is in need of a reno as very tired

Where do i start..... As part of our regular travelling job, my partner and I were sent on a 6 week stint to the NT. We needed to stay 2 and a half weeks and at last notice at the end of dry season, accommodation was rare, and even rarer in our travel allowance range! Whilst there were other places... More

One of the beds was broken. My son went in the shower with his socks on in case he caught anything as... More

Stagnant Urine in toilet as they entered bathroom and body fats and fluids in shower and basin. One part used toilet roll for 3 of them.... More

This place is a gem. I stayed two nights. The 2nd night my son arrived and management offered to move me from a double to twin room (with queen bed). No fuss. Large rooms for the price, great showers. Great restaurant across the road at the sailing club...yes you can wear a singlet.

This is a great basic hotel - located conveniently near a lot of Darwin attarctions and a short taxi trip to CBD and Mitchell St. Friendly local staff will help you out and tell you how to get there. Rooms are basic but clean. Also close to the Casino - you can have a pleasant walk there and if you... More
