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.
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.

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.

High Grade Motel

Very good quality Motel. All conveniences were available and of a very good standard, Good location on the waterfront and also near the harbour restaurants. Unfortunately with the demand for accommodation, the cost per room was twice it should be .

An average room

An expensive room for what you got. We stayed in a motel room not a villa, although the villa's appeared to have little privacy. Nice and natural envrionment with lots of vegetation and close to the city, otherwise just a basic motel studio room, nothing to set it apart.

Ideal location

Ideally situated on the waterfront and close to the new wharf area, close to mall, shops, restaurants and bus terminus, On second stay cotton blanket had dirty marks on it and tiled floors felt grubby. Staff obliging when this was reported. The basic motel room lacks vanity space in the ensuite and desk top space and mirror in bedroom.

Couldnt get better location for the price

We stayed here for 4 nights and was really impressed with the location and price. Our room was across from the pool which was lovely. We had many a yarn with other travellers from other countries. Only small problem was that rooms were a bit small, but overall pretty good

Unbeatable CBD location

This was my first stay at this hotel I am a regular visitor to Darwin and also previously lived there so i am familiar with a lot of hotels. The location is fantastic, easy walking distance to everything in the CBD and opposite the Esplanade park. The pool area was lovely. The room was small but had all that was needed, including a mini kitchenette with a sink and microwave and an little BBQ outside on the porch. The bathroom was a good size with good shower pressure. For the price this hotel represents good value for money in a CBD location and I would stay there again

Standard Room at Palm City Resort

I found thestaff were Excellent, most obliging with whatever request was asked .Always greeted with a smile & asked if they could help in any way. the location was a short walk from the shopping centre & a beautiful parkland opposite the Motel, the room was clean & comfortable, very basic as I asked only for a standard room that fitted my budget. Overall a pleasant stay . Many Thanks Jeanette Scott.

Great stay in Darwin

The Palm City Hotel is well located, close to walk to shops etc. It is also nice that most of the hotel is ground floor. The pool is nice too. And the staff are great. Look forward to going back.
