“Very comfortable and central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Have just stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with friends. Very comfortable and clean. Balcony overlooked many other neighbouring apartment blocks, and they also overlook you! Very central to wharf area which has great restaurants and close to main shopping area. Very modern spacious apartment on sixth floor. Worked out to be $100 a night which is good value.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We thought these apartments were great. Heeded other reviews and asked for a room up higher to avoid traffic noise, and we certainly didn't have any issues there. The rooms were clean and the staff responsive, even over Easter with limited staff and we needed extra linen due to a sick baby. The only issue I noted was the high chair was dirty from previous use, so we needed to soak the straps to remove old food. But, overall, lovely set up, responsive staff and great for a family holiday. Cot and high chair provided, which made a big difference.

Three couples shared a three bed two bathroom apartment.
Our first impression was it was just as pictured in the webpage.
Very nice and new and certainly did not disappoint.
Lovely and spacious for the six of us during our stay.
Beds were very comfortable.
Staff were pleasant to deal with on check in and check out.
We parked without issue on the street outside, due to having on overheight vehicle.
Amenities were all very good, however we didn't use the pool or bbq area due to lack of time.
Overall very happy we booked this apartment.
Great value for us compared to three separate expensive hotel rooms.

Room Tip: Well worth consideration for a group of firends or family.

We had a wonderful week in Darwin, staying at the Argus apartments. Apartments were spectacular as were the amenities. All the Staff were very friendly, helpful with tips on getting around the city and recommendations of where to visit during our stay.

I love staying at the Argus. The staff are friendly and helpful, the apartments are huge and gorgeous, for somewhere to rest your head or get ready for a night out they are spacious with touch of luxury, quiet and scenic. I highly recommend them - I always make an effort to book there when I can.

Recently I had the pleasure of staying in the Level 9 penthouse at Argus Apartments and it was brilliant. The room was spacious, had all the necessary modern conveniences, and a fantastic view of Darwin. The best part of the stay was by far the staff. They were some of the most helpful people I have ever met. I have dealt with many hotels in Darwin and you will not find a friendlier establishment. Mrs. Vicki downstairs is a saint and treats everyone like family.
Cheers!

Room Tip: Higher the room the better the view

We have stayed here several times and it has always been great. It was disappointing to find this time that it now appears to have a 'mining camp' mentallity. Starting with the grumpy woman at reception handing over a bundle of papers to fill in when checking in to say that you won't steal anything, to the signs all over the unit telling you what to do with the airconditioners, toilets, rubbish, etc etc.
Unfortunately all this paperwork has taken the homely feel out of the Argus. Please Argus, can you go back to the way you were.

Dear Wicked 00

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We work very hard to keep all of our guests happy and indeed welcome back many return guests regularly.

We are in the process of refreshing our apartments and BBQ area. Part of that process is the renewal and update of signage. As with most hospitality venues is a method of assisting guests and certainly not intended to impose.

All apartments have signage for the airconditioning use in our tropical climate, recyle rubbish information for our particular area in Darwin and guest conduct information to ensure all guests have a pleasant stay whether here for business or pleasure.

In an era of climate change minor signage pertains to towel replenishment and non-organic objects in the toilet system which is quite standard in hospitality environments including cruise ships.

Reservation paperwork remains standard with our guest registration form, housekeeping welcome letter and our guest conduct policy. These have been in use for many months now and are standard in our check in process.

Do not hesitate to discuss any concerns directly with me or any of our 24/7 reservation team.

Again, thank you for your feedback and we hope you will choose Argus Darwin for your next stay.

Kind Regards
