“Great service”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

We have been amazed by the service received by Sarah and the team at leprechaun. I cannot rate sarahs customer service highly enough. We were boiked to stay one night then off to bali then 2 nights when we come back.

We were going to have about a 5 hour gap from check out to check in at the airport and travelling with a 2 year old that was bad enough. Then our flight was rescheduled meaning we now had 9 hours. On the first night our little one was very unwell so we were hesitant to take her out in the heat.

When we asked about booking another night so we could stay in the cool with her sarah did all she could to accomodate given they were fully booked. She even rung alternate options for us to try and help us.

Really appreciate the attitude and helpfulness of all the staff we had contact with. Will recommend certainly.
The only things that seemed to be missing like a restaurant etc are all underway with the renovations.

Great place to stay. Super friendly staff. The standard is better than a lot of city hotels that charge twice as much. First time I stayed here i commented that there were no restraints near by - so the owner drove down the road a brought back a meal for me - astounding service. Even the cleaning staff are friendly. On my last stay there was a hand written note on my pillow from the cleaning staff welcoming me back. Great work guys - keep up the good work!

The manager of the hotel was very helpful, but could only do so much with what she had to work with. I would not recommend this hotel. To start with, the old air conditioning unit was blocked by a desk and rendered it ineffective. Our room never cooled down. The cold water faucet in the bathroom was loose because the plastic nut on the underside of the sink was missing. The door to our room was locked by a simple push button lock, no additional dead bolt or chain latch. There's also a lot of construction happening at the Leprechaun.

Right now, it appears to be an old motel with a new coat of paint. It looks tidy, but needs a lot of improvement. Calling it a "resort" is a bit of a stretch! The reviews on Tripadvisor don't appear to accurately describe the establishment.

Dear KB3851,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay.

We are so happy to be number one on Tripadvisor, it means all the hard work that we have put into date is well worth it (before and after pictures are currently on our website). We have the most amazing staff that do go out of their way to try and accommodate all of our guests. I feel that this is the main reasons that we are at number 1.

Our current buildings are a part of Darwin's History as they were built before cyclone Tracey (Very Fun Fact) and we have done our best to keep as much of it as we could. Once our cottages are completed our current buildings will still remain budget accommodation, as it is very hard to find affordable accommodation in Darwin, and these rooms are great for fly in fly out guests.

We are currently also building our restaurant which we are very excited about, hopefully the restaurant will be up and running in late August. At the front of the property is another historic building which I personally love which is being turned into a wellness centre for all the girls to get their hair and nails done, while the boys are out fishing and for all the kids we have a mini-golf course going in as well.

We are very excited for all the plans that are currently under way. We know that Darwin does have some amazing places to stay and one of the main reasons people do choose to stay with us is because we are on the cheaper side, however I am very proud to say that with most of our guests they leave us feeling that they have made new friends or are apart of the family.

We arrived late after driving from Toowoomba QLD, (truck driver & wife) without prior contact. Sarah greeted us with the most warm and helpful smile we felt at home, she could see we were exhausted and offered to help by ordering a meal for us. We later met the manager and his partner the next day who chatted with us about their own experiences.
We stayed 3 nights in a lovely room which was serviced everyday - we were made to feel welcome like family.

Room Tip: We chose a back room for quieter stay but the front would be fine!

We stayed here for a couple of nights when we first moved to Darwin. The customer service is excellent, very helpful and friendly. The rooms were serviced every day, which was also great. Very good value for money and would stay again and also highly recommend to others.
