Airport Motel

This is a clean, comfortable Airport Motel. We chose this motel for it's location to Darwin airport and 24 hour the free shuttle service to and from the airport as we had flights in and out of Darwin in the middle of the night.

Nice but expensive

This motel is quite new so the rooms are clean and well decorated. However, the room is quite small. As most accommodation in Darwin it is quite expensive, $260 odd per night, it is not worth, but that is the price you have to pay. There is a pub next door for drinks and meals. Breakfast at the motel is also overpriced. All in all we had a comfortable stay and although the motel is near the airport and on a main road it is quiet. A free shuttle bus is available to and from the airport.

Noisiest motel on the planet

Terrible - never will stay there again. It would be the noisiest motel I've ever stayed in - 2 reasons, first the non stop noise, yelling, screaming, whistling and car noise from the hotel immediately next door till the early hours of the morning. Secondly, the open plan design of the motel along with poor choice of very hard floor coverings throughout just turned the entire place into one big echo chamber. Also the stupid design of our bathroom would only allow the bathroom door to only open halfway before it hit the vanity unit, thus blocking access to the sink and the shower. First prize for dumbness. And to top it all off, it was way overpriced for a basic motel at near $320. Never again, and I would suggest all prospective travellers to look elsewhere.

Cockroach Infested and Unaccommodating Staff!

Our stay at BEST WESTERN was NOT AT ALL PLEASANT AND COMFORTABLE! Cockroaches were crawling all over our room . We hardly had sleep that we badly needed at that time. At 230am (dawn) on our second night, February 17, 2013, we called an attendant/receptionist named JENNY to personally see the crawling and dead pests and the discomforts that we were undergoing at that time. She offered to transfer us to another room but i was telling her that we set our alarm at 430am because we were scheduled for appointments starting early morning of that same day. Told her to relay our complaints to the management instead and offer us some compensation/consolation. Morning came but we never heard from the management so we decided to check out of their place.Still, no word of consolation from the front desk. A duty attendant at the time named SUSIE made it worst for us. She was ARROGANT and RUDE. She said she could not offer us anything as their boss was not around. We gave her our e-mail addresses so her boss could reach us. Until now, we still have to hear a word from the management. It was such a nightmare for us! It was our first time in Australia and being an advance and free country, we were expecting to experience GOOD SERVICE and deal with DECENT and PROFESSIONAL people. We chose to book for a four-star hotel to make our stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible but we were greatly DISAPPOINTED! For the rest of our stay, we transferred to COCONUT GROVE HOLIDAY APARTMENTS. Luckily for us, the owner was so accommodating and kind and we never saw even a single cockroach crawling during our entire stay there...Until now, no word from the management of Best Western Darwin Airport Gateway Motel is received by us. IT WAS SUCH A WASTE OF PRECIOUS MONEY TO HAVE STAYED IN THAT SHABBY PLACE! A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE INDEED!!!

The hotel is new and spacious.

The hotel is new and spacious. Its services are fresh and welcoming. Their responses to our phone calls were respectful and informative. Although near an international airport it is still very quiet and clean air is all around. The hotel is situated on a main road but situated back enough so that the traffic noise is minimal to those rooms at the front of the hotel where I had booked. Breakfast was neat, sufficient and professionally prepared. Well done, Best Western Darwin.
