The hotel is down on the harbour/waterfront precinct next to the convention centre and wave pool. It is 10 minutes easy walk from the CBD across the sky bridge.
Reception was welcoming and cool (a must for Darwin).Check In was fast, friendly and efficient on the Wed afternoon when we arrived from Sydney.
The room was quite large, we had booked via Wotif which offered a harbour view upgrade room at the same price as a normal room, this was a good deal as the view was excellent.
The bed was a queen, with a desk, chair and small sofa/recliner. A small kitchenette had a Jug, Toaster, Fridge, Microwave and utensils for making food in the microwave. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and was quite roomy. The room was clean and fresh.
The restaurant downstairs has some $15 meals up to 6pm which were good value, after that I am not sure as we didn't eat after that there. However there are many eating options in teh waterfront precinct or 15 minutes walk away.
The pool is nice if a fraction too cold, however in Darwin anything cold is welcome so it wasn't a real problem. There is a bar with a serving area onto the pool which was convenient.
We stayed a planned 3 days and 1 extra unplanned day. During the three days the cleaner did miss clearing out the bins on one occasion, however this may have been my fault, not sure, otherwise the towels were changed daily.
The unplanned day was due to the airport being closed due to volcanic dust blowing in from Indonesia. We actually found out when the check out receptionist told asked if we were going to the airport and then advised us that it was closed. Upon confirming with the airline that we were not going anywhere until the next day, we asked if we could stay for an extra night and the receptionist then quickly arranged the same room at a very good rate and offered it to us at the same rate for any other days we were going to be stuck. This was great service and a huge relief at that point.
My wife was a bit worried about this hotel when I booked as some previous 'apartment' hotels had been sub-optimal, however this wasn't one of them, it was great, the room was great and the service was the best I have received.....ever.
