The room was comfortable with all the standard features you expect of a normal hotel. However, the breezeway outside my door was a sound tunnel. Every noise was amplified and the sound of opening doors, closing doors, bags being dragged up stairs and bags being bumped downstairs, people talking, people coughing, and people being people made my sleeping difficult. Installing...

The lasting impression I have is that this hotel is very convenient but attention to detail could be better such as putting back the rods in the wardrobes (fittings were there but no rods) details on how the air con works or doesn't when the verandah door is open (who knew?). As for the restaurant a good shake up of...

Sometimes the rates for this hotel are through the roof, which means it is not worth your hard-earned dollars. But when you have a very early flight leaving Darwin airport it can mean the difference between sleeping on the floor with lights on and music blaring, or in a quiet room with a comfortable bed... The room I booked was...

I choose this hotel as it is close to the airport and there is complementary shuttle though I have waited for half an hour to be picked up from the airport. Reception is not that fancy and so is the room very basic yet rate is quite expensive. Just good for transit only for one night.

Overall the staff are friendly and accomodating. Slow checkin process. Rooms are clean but slightly tired. Two stopvovers in one week. The first stay toilet was very noisy and kept running all night. Could turn the water off. On my return they picked me up from the airport as it was pouring with rain. There was no milk in my...

Room wasn't ready upon arrival in early hours of the morning when I opened the door, had to walk back to reception in the rain carrying a heavy bag, the key to the second room allocated did not work so another walk back in the rain. I sent three emails and phone calls prior to arrival (because the person answering...

Coming very late, at 1am, your shuttle service to Hotel was the best thing for us at that night. Your 24 hr was really helpful for the late coming customers, easy and quick service to let us in to our room. The bonus for us is the swimming pool at the next morning.

Stayed at this accommodation house on our stop-over. Reception was amiable but no effort to make us feel welcome which was disappointing. Given first room which actually was already being used or not made up, so then given another. Room was dirty - house-keeping need a good shake up. Opened louvre to find they have never been cleaned. Carpets are...

The staff were very helpful in making our stay a comfortable one, every request made was met and exceeded all our expectations. We travelled to Darwin for a rugby tournament and all the facilities we needed was on site at the hotel.

Hi Jerry M, it was fantastic to have you with us recently during the Hottest 7's what a great tournament it was and all of the players and supporters were superb. Especially given a lightning strike to the area early Friday morning took out our internet causing significant disruption through the weekend. It did mean I didn't get to make...
