We had a superior motel room for our 4-nite stay and were very happy with our accommodation. We were given an upstairs room with its own balcony and small kitchenette. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and was cleaned daily. The housekeeping staff we saw around the resort were very friendly and always said hello or had a quick chat whenever we passed by. The resort is in a great location close to everything in Darwin CBD and directly opposite the Esplanade parklands. There is limited off-street parking but we had no problems finding a space each day during our stay. Darwin is an expensive city for holidays but I think this resort offers particularly good value.
The only fault (and it's very minor) is that the pool hours were listed as 6am to 10pm. However, we found that the pool was closed around 8am every morning for cleaning. This just happened to be around the time our toddler wanted to go for his after-breakfast swim, so it was a slight inconvenience to have to wait another 30-45 minutes. But on the upside, the pool was always spotlessly clean and lovely to swim in!
