I have not yet stayed, but walked into Palms Motel 3-4 times, inspected different rooms, talked to the Manager Micheal and also to some guests who are staying there. ALL GOOD. Why I did that? I am looking for a cheaper place with necessary facilities such as Microwave, kitchenette, cutlery, etc, and friendly, understandable Manager. Also I need to be... More

Simple & clean. Must be leak in shower tiles as water was on tiles pooling next to toilet but wouldn't drain as the drain appeared blocked. Great if on a budget, very spacious. Didn't use pool but looked nice. Coin washing machine out back which was handy. Tavern & bottle shop across the road, very convenient.

Stayed there for 3 nights and would stay again if ever back in Darwin because of its close proximity to the CBD. Had requested a budget room but with mugs, dishes, etc as advertised but, according to other reviewers, not always provided in rooms. Michael, the manager/owner (?) had upgraded us to a larger room at no extra charge as... More

Stayed in this this motel as an overnight stop while transiting through Darwin en-route to Alice Springs. Arrived at the motel at about 7:30pm, already dark. No lit property signage so very difficult for taxi to locate property. Check in O.K. , property owner/manager very helpful. Property itself is very dated, and while clean and tidy , the facilities are... More

We spent three nights at the Palms following our arrival in Darwin on a birding trip. The location was perfect for us, since the hotel is next door to the Botanic Gardens and near the Stuart Highway as well, so it was easy to get out of town quickly to visit some birding locations. The accommodation is basic: the room... More

Fairly basic but good sized room [superior hotel room] Nice pool area. A little disappointed that being on The Esplanade that no room actually looked out to the sea. Were told that our balcony looked out over the gardens - well - some palm tops but mainly rooftops. Great location - a few minutes walk to city centre/ restaurants/ Coles... More

We used their left-luggage service and had bags not arrive. Their quick and courteous help enabled us to track the bag and recover it from the airline. All their handling was on video and easy for them to check on our behalf. Thanks guys!

Palms Motel is a simple motel in a good location. The motel is just outside the city centre but it is easy to walk in Darwin for shopping: it takes about 15 minutes to get to the shopping area and restaurants. There is a pub across the road from the motel. The motel is ideally situated for visiting the Botanic... More
