“Value for Money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights with group in 4 apartments. They are clean and have all of the facilities you need. Beds are a bit hard but your not expecting the Ritz. Great location with easy access with ample parking. Good value for money - Darwin can be expensive.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Stayed at the City Gardens Apartments for 2 nights, the apartment was very clean, Air Conditioners in the loungeroom and both bedrooms along with ceiling fans. Close to downtown a short 10 minute walk and a 5 minute walk to Cullen Bay & Mindil Beach.
Bed was a bit too hard for my liking but just being there for 2 nights it was bearable.

We booked this as it was central to Darwin, we found everything within waking distance. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms were excellent and the so were the facilities, there was a large kitchen area with a fridge freezer and a cooker. In the very large bathroom there was a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Pool area is very nice and secluded.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2011

We came here from Cairns as two couples and stayed in one of the ground floor two bedroom units. We found the managers very friendly and they have lots of local information available in the office. The unit was spacious, clean ,well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. The apartments are located on the edge of the central city area and we were able to walk to shops and restaurants in about 10 minutes. We hired bicycles a couple of blocks away in Cavanagh St and had a leisurely ride to the Gardens and then to the waterfront park. It's only a short drive to Cullen Bay and Mindil Beach. It was good value for Darwin, which is generally an expensive place to stay.

This was our second stay here and we came back because we thought it had been renovated. We were sharing with friends again. It is very clean, walking distance to everything in the town centre, has great staff and a fabulous pool but it needs to be modernized a bit.

This is a centrally located place. The pool is nice. Our apartment had a nice sized kitchen with big refrigerator and a washer and dryer in the large bathroom. All the rooms had AC and ceiling fans. Decent cable tv options. My only issue is that the walls were cinderblock,

City Gardens was a great base for our NT holiday. As previous reviewers had suggested, it's not luxurious but all the necessities are provided. Our unit was handy to the pool area, which is very pleasant and the lush foliage around the pool and units adds to the tropical atmosphere. The short walk into the Darwin CBD was easy and we were able to visit most of Darwin's attractions on foot. For the second week of our stay we hired a car and were able to venture further and explore the many wonderful areas around Darwin. Our unit was cleaned once half way through our stay and clean towels and sheets provided. The basics, such as tea, coffee, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper were happily topped up on our request. There is also a lovely BBQ area which we were able to use on several occasions. All in all a great place (slightly pricy for what you get but I think that's just Darwin). The photos on the apartment's website are a good representation of the units.Helpful and friendly staff, too.
