Room basic, barely acceptable clean. Linen well worn. Jug needed to be scrubbed before use! Bathroom tap continuos drip! Unable to tighten to stop. Aircon working but not adequately. Small roaches in bathroom. Hotel position central and close to backpackers district, noisy and slightly scared. Door chain broken, felt unsafe. 3 nights stay only saw staff on day of leaving!...

Had a lot of trouble finding the place and then wished we hadn't! Very cheap looking in a unsafe-feeling part of town and an unmanned reception (we arrived after hours) so no one to call if there was a problem. The parking seemed to just be street parking and we didn't like the look of the people hanging around so... More

The bathrooms in our rooms were old and needed desperate updating. There are obviously some refurbished rooms which are better quality. The sheets were grey rather than white but otherwise the room was clean. Hotel obviously has lots of long term tenants and backpackers so they live and play there hence noise. Also proximity to Mitchell St means lots of... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and this motel was far from good. The rooms themselves were clean but the rooms were very old and outdated. The bathroom was very old and the shower was terrible the temperature was constantly changing from hot to cold and I didn't enjoy showering at all. The outside noise was really bad it sounded...

Large rooms, clean and on a perfect location. Really friendly and helpful staff. We stayed here 3 months and this year we are back for another 3. Nice laundry, big kitchen and a nice pool with BBQ. Definitely worth your money! The staff is like family and the place is like being home, thanks guys! Much love, the Dutchies

Our room was fine, clean and the aircon (while noisy) worked. Outside the room was a different story. The lift didn't work, the general surrounds were grotty and the traffic coming in and out later in the evening was colourful to say the least. It is close to Mitchell St and walking distance to lots of places. However, more affordable... More

exterior from the street and website photos look OK - this is far from the truth of the reality. Grimy accommodation to say the least - sheets were grey and had stains. Bathroom was not clean and we did not enter unless we had footwear. the people that run the place obviously DO.NOT.CARE. There were obviously long term tenants here... More

Don and I had an enjoyable stay here for our last two nights on our trip up the centre. The room was very clean and the air con was heaven in the Darwin heat. The price is affordable and the location is very central to walk around Darwin. Thank you both for an enjoyable stay Don and Wendy England
