Boasting breathtaking views of Darwin Harbour and right behind the city's business district, Palms City Resort is the perfect spot for a quick business trip or a tropical holiday. The Cenotaph is on your doorstep and Parliament House is just a few feet away. A short walk along Mitchell Street, Darwin's main restaurant and shopping strip, will lead you to Crocosaurus Cove where you can swim with crocodiles - if you are game.

Location
Palms City Resort is only a five minute walk to the Darwin Waterfront Wave Pool and a 12 minute drive from Darwin International Airport. The Mindil Beach Sunset Market operates from April to October and is six minutes by car or a 20 minute stroll through the city and past SKYCITY Casino.

Rooms
The 50 modern motel rooms and 39 tropical styled villas at Palms City Resort all feature air-conditioning, ensuite bathroom and flat screen TV.

Restaurant
A breakfast restaurant operates from 6.30am to 10am daily offering a full cooked breakfast menu either in air-conditioned comfort or in an alfresco outdoor setting.

General
Palm City Resort amenities include a guest laundry, 24 reception and wireless Internet access. A dip in the pool surrounded by landscaped gardens is an ideal way to escape the heat before taking the five minute walk to the Darwin Wharf Precinct to choose from a variety of eating options ranging from relaxed alfresco, a dinner cruise, or exclusive fine dining.

4 out of 5

I stayed in the Business villas which were great. Much better than I was expecting from the photos online. The staff very very helpful and the bungalow/room was cleaned to a very high standard each day. I don't know that I would want to stay in the hotel rooms as it is more like a row of motel rooms, but they seemed well kept and are obviously less expensive. The pool was great too. The location is perfect. Very close to all the action on Mitchell street and also within easy walking distance of the waterfront and convention centre. I would certainly recommend the business villas for anyone who doesn't want to stay in a standard hotel type room. The terrace with BBQ and lovely gardens were so much better than your normal hotel room, especially when in a nice climate like Darwin (in the dry season anyway). The bathroom was very small but very clean and perfectly adequate. The villa also had a kitchenette which was handy for preparing basic meals or a BBQ. I left some clothes in my wardrobe and the staff phoned to inform me and offered to post them back to me which I thought was very nice. The noise from some of the pubs nearby can be a bit loud, even late at night but if that doesn't really bother you as it didn't me its not really a problem.

I was there for 2 nights on business, just the right room for me, i had the private bungalow with a verandah, ref and some facilities to knock up a quick snack. Great hot water and pressure and clean toilets, always the 1st thing I look for in a hotel room. Comfortable bed with plenty of pillows. Great walking areas just across the road on the waterfront and very close to the main shopping hub, stores, restaurants and pubs. Quiet and set amoungst the gardens.... Wioll definetly stay there again...

I thoroughy enjoyed my stay. My only complaint was that on having breakfast on Tuesday morning I found the hot dishes were all just warm and was a little disappointed that there wasn't more variety in the hot dishes - e.g. mushrooms, tomatoes and another variety of cooked eggs, not just scrambled.

Very good location. The cheap rooms are average, but solid. Be careful when booking because you can think you are getting a good room by looking at the photos on their website when you are actually getting an average room. How you get a good room in the little cabins is the trick.

nice pool. rooms are clean and adequate. staff offers nothing special in service. location is ok and walking distance to the beach front. since we drove, it is ok. parking spaces can be tough at times due to limited parking. walking distance to the supermarket nearby for easy re-stock of food. microwave and BBQ pits are great as we have a baby in tow.

Rooms very small. Room staff very friendly & helpful unfortunately front desk staff disinterested. Parking limited & a long way from rooms - difficult for people with luggage. Lots of roadside noise.

The hotel location is good but the new villas are far too close to the road and therefor very noisy and disturbing especially when flights get in so late at night. Dinner room needs an update and very stark and basic. Long way to carry luggage from the reception to the villa which is a long way. It would have not been friendly to a disabled or ederly guest. I was booked for two nights but did not stay for the second night but booked in elsewhere which was an added expense.

very basic hotel with small room size in villa and kind of overpriced. i can't even get access to a powerpoint converter and toothbrush in my villa, not even from reception desk. Walls are alittle thin. THe BBQ pit was a good idea. as run on electricity, we just walk to nearby coles in mitchell center and buy what we need! Cheap, good and balcony experience! Swimming pool was small but adequate. Near the esplanade area but walkable to smith street and mitchell street.
