“Absolutely wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Definitely the best value for money and service not be found anywhere else in Darwin. We stayed here on two different occasions during our trip and both rooms were absolutely immaculate. The double rooms that we used had good aircon, fan, fridges and were well configured in terms of the location of the power points and bathroom. For the price room it felt absolutely luxurious.

The staff were helpful with all our touristy questions and provided great recommendations for where to shop/eat. The manager Ally definitely went above and beyond for us on Christmas Day when we were in the unfortunate position of being unable to purchase any food.

We were welcomed liked old friends and we would definitely recommend this property to everyone travelling to Darwin. This property definitely made our short trip to the Northern Territory worthwhile and I look forward to returning here in the near future.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are probably a little less warm when you first go in, but once the aircon kic...

If you are looking for a place that you want to call your second home this resort is the place to go. the People are very friendly and genuine. The rooms are very clean and well presented. This place is a total package. If you are staying as a family I recommend the cabin room. But if you are going to spend a night with your love one get the deluxe room, and enjoy the comfortable robes.

Room Tip: "Cabin rooms are more spacious"

Found you guys by mistake. Boy am I glad I did. Rooms 5 star and immaculate. A credit to the ladies who make the rooms up. Never had a guests Barbie before on Sunday night. What a wonderful idea. Steaks were great, met some wonderful people and exchanged travel tips.
Off street parking certainly won me over also. So happy with me 2 days stay re-booked again on the 21st for 4 days. Sorry I will miss the Barbie this time. At last someone is think about us the client and not the almighty dollar. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Best value for money in Darwin

Thank you for your kind words, the guests BBQ on a Sunday evening is a great way to meet people and as you mentioned exchange tips on all the little hidden places to visit whilst in the top end.
our guest BBQ was well received and something we will be running every Sunday evening starting at 6.30pm (weather permitting)
we do have ample off street parking and in the next 2 weeks we will have a new security sliding gate at the entry with a key pad to maximise the security of our guests and there property (not that we have had any incidents) but to make it more private.
Thanks again.

Arrived from North Queensland looking for a place that was not over priced. Asked the Taxi Driver and he took me to The Leprechaun. Said it has been recently done up. He was not wrong. Not expecting what I was shown. Rooms spotless, Managers went out of there way for us. Not far out of town. Got a 2 bedroom unit with kitchen near the pool. Plenty of space for the children to play safely. No cars zooming past. Spoke to people from Jabiru ( Mining Town ) who said this was their second time. Can see why. Not very expensive. 4 days of bliss with the kids in the pool. Will definately stay again. Thanks Alley and Scott.

Room Tip: Units out the back. Very quiet.

Being FIFO I needed somewhere comfortable to stay overnight.
Saw The Leprechaun on Wotif and decided to give it a go. What a pleasant surprise.
Room immaculate, Managers went out of their way to assist. So happy I stayed on my return and will now spread the word. Have now made a permanent booking.
