Great location with a view of Darwin Harbour & Mitchell Street just behind. Clean and comfortable room with all the amenities you need and the Staff are very friendly and helpful. The evening menu in the hotel restaurant was a bit limited and did not change but the food was excellent. Will stay here again :)

Location very convenient, the room overall very comfortable except for the tap in the bathroom was a little noisy. Great to be able to have a drink in the hotel bar. Pool area very clean and shaded. I would stay here again if I ever visit Darwin again.

The hotel and staff were excellent, but the air conditioning in our bedroom did not work at all, and neither did one of the lifts for our entire stay (6 days). Otherwise loved it, the location, pool and views were awesome.

the room was large and clean, was on the city side, location was right in the heart of the city, and across the road was the parkland along the bay. Views were great, Staff were friendly and helpful. only minus was the noise from party goers late Saturday night.

Great place to stay. Reasonably priced and comfortable room. Book an apartment as it has everything you need. Hotel has bar and pool, not ideal for small children but still very relaxing. Shops close by and awesome park right on the waters edge, also crocodile cove 5 minutes walk away. Shuttle bus from airport, only $35.00. Great place to chill... More
