We booked this hotel because we wanted a bit of luxury after a long trip up the Centre of Aus. In Sydney the restaurants inside the Casino are subsidised, not so with this one. Unfortunately our 1st breakfast included, 2 requests for our table to...More

If there's one thing which annoys me is being charged for a room before you've even occupied it. And not only that but adding on $100 in so called extras. Of course I should have known the Darwin speciality of asking for payment before you've...More
