Good location

The hotel had everything I required, Be weary of the car parking as there is only poor options to park unless you use the additional charge car parking. At a less then reasonable $18 a night

Awesome family trip

Great location in the middle of Darwin CBD, plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Easy to get the bus to the Mindl Beach markets.

Family Trip

We stayed here a few years ago, and happy to return. The hotel is in a great central location across from the mall. It only has a small swimming pool, but all we needed to cool off.

clean, convenient and comfortable

We stayed here for 2 nights and it's our first time to visit Darwin. The staff are very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is ideal for everything: location is perfect for finding place to shop, eat or even leisurely stroll along the esplanade. The buffet breakfast is superb. There's so much selection. The room we've stayed is clean and quiet. Though the hotel itself is situated in CBD, we hardly hear any traffic noise. Thought I better mention that there's a nominal charge of $2 for wifi for 24 hour used also $18 for 24 hour valet car parking. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend others.

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.
