Very close to the City, for business purposes. An obvious location when choosing to stay at a Casino. Great Pool. Good dining options available, although could not recommend il Piatte. Hotel building is fairly well maintained, but just starting to show its age a little.

On arrival was confusing to park no clear signs.II booked for 5 guests in 2 separate rooms, on arrival I was told I was to pay for extra guest. I felt very uncomfortable as I knew I had paid and booked for 5. The rooms were comfortable and adequate a bit over priced, I was expecting a bit better value. We dinned at the restaurant which was beautiful food, service and wine list. The staff made us feel welcome and relaxed. Departure was the same at reception, still questioning my booking of guest. I showed them my receipt (again) with number of guests and rooms booked. We have stayed at many hotels and I have never experienced or made feel uncomfortable on arrival and departure

A little disappointed on arrival. First appearances were of a rundown hotel in need of a facelift. In fact it is undergoing this. The outdoor pool area etc overlooking the water is a perfect place to view the sunset. Rooms comfortable but small however the balcony was very useful. We did get a good deal and perhaps the room appropriate to this rate. All in all enjoyed our stay.

As a 5-star hotel, it felt more like a motel with nice facilities. We were on the 3rd and highest floor and there was a free laundry room with ice machine. it completely reminds me of the highway motels in the USA. The Reception is small and at best have at most 2 staff. The concierge staff multi-tasks as bellboy, car driver, etc. The wifi in the lobby only started working on the last day of our 4-day stay. Housekeeping kept missing a dead cricket in the bathroom throughout our stay. The one bedroom suite was very good with great air conditioning, jacuzzi tub and great shower but still lacks true 5-star quality. The location is only about 10 minutes from downtown Darwin yet it's too far to walk because of the hot sun. There is a bus service that comes once every 30mins. I definitely would not stay there again. The Medina Vibe (4-star) at Waterfront is far superior to Skycity's warehouse style roofing.

Much prefer to stay here. I like the iPhone/iPod docking station in the room. This is one of the better hotels for Darwin, it is away from the noisy back packers, and is recently renovated.

Stayed in the 1 bedroom suite. Room was pretty good/spacious - but had a few issues. Biggest complaint though was the 'supposed' heated pool which by global standards was not heated - and was in fact far to cold to swim in for majority of our stay (except for one day when it was very hot). It was set to bone chilling 22-23 degrees - wheras upon searching internet found that heated pools should normally be around 27-28 degrees (27 for lap pool, 28 for recreational use). This was pretty annoying as coming from cold climate (Melbourne) we were really looking forward to swimming - one of the reasons we chose this place over others was it being advertised as having 'largest heated pool in darwin' (which was very misleading as pool would have been this temp without any heating). Staff were quite unwilling to do anything about this - and noticed pretty much nobody was using pool while we were there. Also internet very poor - unable to use it for Skype calls.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times now and will continue to do so. The hotel staff are always friendly and helpful and the facilities are more than adequate. The seafood buffet for dinner is great value. The pool overlooks the beach and you can enjoy a cocktail sitting in the pool watching the sunset ... just magical. The hotel provides a bus service to the town but it is easier to have your own transport, the shops are not close by. This hotel is ideal for a relaxing time-out holiday.

Skycity Darwin is in a great location on the beach and the best thing about the hotel is the swimming pool and adjoining area. The rooms/accommodation is very tired and frankly very poor for a so called '5 star' hotel!! Finally it is always freezing anywhere indoors.

I thought it was okay but not great for a supposedly five star rating, they ordered my airport taxi for the wrong night and woke me up at midnight to find that out, reception staff average and not friendly, room was clean and spacious, nicely appointed but hotel overall a bit tired and dated, location was hopeless, it may be near the beach (which never had anyone on it!!) but not near anything else, they did have free shuttle into Darwin which helped but you felt quite isolated.

A very professionally run venue with very friendly and efficient staff and front office management. Excellent all round entertainment facilities incorporating flexible food and beverage offerings for all. Highly recommended and certainly in the higher class of venues.

Just about the best place to stay in Darwin While away from the CBD it is close to Cullen Bay restaurants Mindle Beach markets which are open Thursday and Sunday evenings and a pleasant walk to the Museum and Sailing Club

always book at Skycity, always friendly can't do enough to help you. If you have any problems with them, then there is something wrong. They always go out of there way to help you.Go for a day's shopping they will lug all your shopping up to your room no problem. Would'nt stay anywhere else. Keep up the great service Skycity,will recomend to everyone that asks.

we have stayed at SkyCity 2 times now, and we love the location being on the beach and direct access into casino and resturants. The infinity pool is fantastic with pool bar service, the rooms are spacious and very comfortable beds, and the Sunset lounge has the best steak we have ever tasted and only $14.95 (6-7pm) but still only $25 after that, great sunset views over the beach Between March and Oct you have the Mindle beach night markets right next door and they are great, the city is only a few mins away by car and hotel does a shuttle into city and airport

The hotel was three mins from the city (by Cab) which was very welcome as there was quite a lot of activity at the Casino and restaurants to chose from. Only issue was the shuttle bus only ran twice a day each way so we needed to catch cabs
