Stayed one night at Darwin Central, the room was adequate, amenities wert fine what was needed and at the cost you can't complain I don't believe. Service was easy and polite and location very convenient. For the cost basis I would recommend Darwin central as a nice place to stay

Only stayed here for one night and had a great stay, especially as they let me check in super early after arriving from an overnight flight. It is also in a very central location, so everything in the city is easy to walk to. However, it was slightly pricey, especially for a solo traveller, and it's not like the rooms...

Could not be more pleased with all aspects of our stay. On arrival met by door man who greeted us and then took our luggage. Reception was polite and genuine. Full of local knowledge and answered all out questions plus added a few very good suggestion of Darwin sights. Could not fault the room for comfort and especially cleanliness.

Stayed for only 1 night and found the staff to be helpful. The room clean and tidy and quiet. My only disappointment was the $18.00 per night to park here We had a 3 floor room and lift fast and the location 10/10 Close to many restaurants and great local eats

Nice motel which is very central to all things in the city. I would recommend staying there to others. It is comfortable and quiet. Dining is close and easy to walk around the city to see things and do shopping.
