Great service

Lovely rooms, great price. Our room didn't get serviced despite a two night stay, but other than the reception staff and valets were great.

Very poor service, will not come again

Very poor staff service. Parking is charged at 18 AUD per day was told no alternative parking when the street parking outside the hotel is charged only at 7AUD full day. Hotel totally not child friendly, requested for baby cot and baby bathing tub both are not available and even when I requested for a pill or budget the main desk said no. Check in time is very rigid at 2pm, we arrived early and even when I am willing to pay for an additional day of rent they asked me to wait for 2 hours for their manager to be back despite rooms being available. Complete let down by the service decent hotel in terms of furnishing and location. Internet is charged at 2AUD per day, not expensive however the purchase policy is a little puzzling when they refused to let me purchase it until I am assigned a room.

Excellent Customer Service

We had a fantastic stay at the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The location was central, within walking distance to major sights in the city area. The customer service at the reception was excellent. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful, attending to every request of the guests. Overall the hotel was value for money, in comparison of Darwin Hotel rates.

Good value city location

Good central location for Darwin and a very spacious, comfortable room. Staff were helpful and informative. Better than many hotels in Darwin costing a lot more - definitely worth considering for a no frills but great value option.

Very good.

There was some confusion when booking in! Initially Staff wanted to charge an extra $45 per night for the 4th person, but after checking and some delay everything was as booked and paid for.

We would stay again.

The facilities were all very good. Pleasant room and the breakfast buffet was excellent value. They did not have a restaurant and referred us to a "take away" next door, but there were some great places to eat a few steps away.

In Transit

Great location, very short walk to the centre of Darwin entertainment and excellent restaurant variation. if you couldn't find something suitable within ten minutes walk you'd be bloody hard to please. Great room, good view of harbour. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Very restful day and a bit between full on fishing trip in Arnhem Land and flight home to Perth.
