“Really good value for money!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Stayed there last year for a few nights ..... really clean and modern rooms, nice pool and the manager and staff really nice and genuine. Would recommend it to everyone, especially in Darwin where everything is so overpriced. Was the least expensive place we stayed and the nicest!!

Dear Robert D

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us.
We are delighted to hear your positive comments!

I hope next time you are in Darwin you will pop in and see us again. We are almost ready to unveil our new Luxury Cabins, Conference Room and Tropical Pool.

Our Restaurant is also on the way in the very near future and that will be a massive bonus to The Resort.

Wishing you all the best
Sarah

although old, the rooms are clean, tidy and well presented. Even though the resort is close to the main road, we heard very little traffic noise. The owners are lovely and very courteous and helpful. it's only a 15min drive to the city which for some maybe a little far. However, it was not too inconvenient for us.
the Resort is under renovations at the moment with better options for accommodation. Can't wait till it's finished as this will be a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Although the rooms at front are closer to the road, noise level is tolerable. however, the rooms fur...

You could only rate it highly for 2 reasons - perceived value and the wonderful nature of the Irish girl at the front desk - she tried her hardest to help you.
The blurb says all rooms have been refurbished but it is still a dated basic motel that suffers badly from noise.
It is on a very busy highway so a room at the front will suffer from normal road noise but to make it worse, it is close to the flight path and there seems to be no curfew in Darwin - planes fly all night seemingly.
The rooms are small and basic - little room to move about.
For $175 for a back room (larger) I expected more.

Dear RonWamberal

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us.
I am sorry to hear that you had a sleepless night.

Our Rooms have all been freshly refurbished since we opened our doors almost 2 years ago now! Our buildings were amongst the very few structures to survive Cyclone Tracey which is quite remarkable.

I am glad to see that you enjoyed the service provided by our team.

We are almost finished our massive development which will see us with Luxury Cabins, A Conference Room, A Tropical Pool and Restaurant. I hope you will pop in and have a look around next time you are in Darwin as it will be something quite special once it is all completed.

Best Wishes
Sarah

Impressed by the No. 1 ranking on Tripadvisor we booked in here for one night in April. The Leprechaun may be near the airport but the drive takes 10 mins and costs 20 AUD, thus you might as well book into a hotel in town, since the location on Stuart Highway next to a Shell petrol station is less than romantic. Leprechaun is not a "resort", it is a dated motel, nothing more. The washing facilities are OK. The one bright spot was the Irish girl on reception who was absolutely wonderful.

Small, but nice. Very helpful and friendly staff is the main reason I liked this spot. Very safe and short distance from town.love the safety of the closed compound which gives you the peace of mind to park your car in the hotel premises.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, ideally situated near airport and mobile home hire with a bus stop just out front. The rooms were very clean and the guest's kitchen was a great bonus. Particular thanks to Sarah for making us feel so welcome.
