Holiday Inn Esplanade Darwin
4 out of 5

Enjoyed the stay, exactly as expected. I have stayed at Holiday Inn's before and this accommodation was as good as others. Staff were helpful and the pool was clean and inviting. We had cooked and continental breakfasts which were excellent. The counter staff helped with directions and bookings which made our stay very enjoyable.

The staff are super friendly. The room we stayed in two of the lights never worked. Also the cover was missing in the bathroom light.

I booked a suite for 3 people, and when we got there it only had a bed for 2, although they did roll in a spare bed. Also there were only 2 coffee cups etc and had not been set upi in advance for 3 people. Some of the towels had seen better days, and its not what I would expect from a hotel like this. The second time we have stayed here where the bath plugs did not fit. The staff are VERY friendly and helpful.

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and we were upgraded to loft suites which were lovely. This is an old hotel and the decor throughout is very dated although that didn't really matter as the rooms were clean and comfortable. However, the hot water in the shower was very erratic going hot and cold all the time which was annoying. For the price though, it's great value and much better in every aspect than the Holiday Inn we stayed in the previous night at Jabiru.

The hotel was excellent but the only problem is the front access - stairs only and no ramp for bringing up heavy baggage. However the staff were very helpful and lugged our heavy bags for us.

We were very impressed with the Holiday Inn Esplanade Darwin. We couldn't have had a better reception. The room was beautifully services each morning. A jug of complementry milk was provided as well a a news paper. We felt quite at home. I would go so far as to say if wasn't very good.......it was excellent. We would be more than happy to stay with them again. In fact we didn't want to leave. Thank you for organising our stay.

Place is a little bit dated but clean and very friendly staff. It's at the end further away from the nightlife when you walk across to Mitchell St. Used it as a base for catching the Ghan train the next morning and it worked very well in this regard. Overall, good value and would stay there again.

We stayed in this Hotel eight nights and enjoyed the service from happy helpful staff within the hospitality and front desk areas and they could not do enough for us. The only down side was our room carpet needed a thorough vacuuming as we found lolly papers, fluff, and bobby pins (hair clips) from past occupiers under our beds. We had a large room with two large Queen sized beds, table and one chair, fridge, television and phone plus a good sized bathroom with both shower and full size bath. Used items were replaced daily, and on two occassions we requested our room to be cleaned on return from our outings after 3pm, due to us displaying the do not disturb sign until 11am. Yes we would definitley stay at this hotel again.

My husband and I found the hotel comfortable and quiet. The staff were rather 'amateur', particularly in the hotel's Sirrocco Restaurant, however, their friendly and pleasant attitude made up for their lack of ??training. The food was of a high standard.

Good location on Esplanade in CBD - staff friendly and service-oriented. Business centre better than some - though at $5 for 30min, a bit pricey for computer use (even if internet included). Poolside good, with drinks and food. Room cleaning was good, friendly and efficient, though chairs stained and needing re-upholstering. Not really worth $200 a night, but that is Darwin. Okay in its market.
