I accidentally booked my room for the wrong day- no fuss even though they were fully booked, I was put into one of the rooms in the new building. The room was very modern and perfect for someone travelling alone. Very close to the airport, the shuttle took 2 mins to arrive after they called for it and took me... More

We booked this resort a little while ago and got reeeeaaaallllly worried about the negative reviews. I can honestly say we can't understand why these reviews were made. Yes, when you get in at 1am don't expect an army of people to wait on you hand and foot. But, we did get friendly smiley service and a beautiful bottle of... More

Just 5mins walk from the airport, it's not only good due to its convenient location but also because you've got everything you might want to have after a long day followed by an early morning flight the next day. The hotel has an in-house bar and restaurant that serves good food and drinks. Also, its atmosphere is comfy and warm... More

Not sure I'd call this resort "average" but I wouldn't call it "very good" either. The entry lobby is nice leading to a nice pool setting so started well. The rooms however (I was in block 1) were a little old & out dated..especially the bathrooms. No issues with cleanliness, just a bit old looking & I had a room... More

Close to the airport but it's tired and a little run down. The gym has two pieces of equipment but one is broken and looks like it has been for a while. It also hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Good place if you are staying for one night and want to be near the airport. Darwin city isn't... More

We have stayed here at least once per year since about 2005, it is a convenient overnight stop to connect with flights going to and from various fishing lodges we like to visit and they offer a shuttle service. The gardens and pool are very nice and the rooms comfortable enough but we have noticed a steady decline in the... More

Coming back from one of the remote islands after some fishing this was an easy option with the free shuttle bus from and to the airport. It's a 2 minute ride so very quick, the hotel is pretty basic as for the room goes. It has a pool on site which is quite nice and a bar Restaurante which is... More

I have been an Accor Hotels member for 20+ years and the service here is appalling. After my first visit here inJune I thought I would try one more to see if anything has changed. Yes it has but for the worse not better. I am writing this because I have now been waiting over an hour for my main... More

I spent one night at this motel in transit to Alice Springs. I tired ringing their pick up service but no response so walked the 400 metres in the dark along a rough poorly lit track to the place. Friendly staff. Room basic motel with cheap fittings and noisy plumbing from other rooms. Definitely not worth the money but trapped... More
