Dining

Essence Restaurant
To capture the meaning of Essence is best described as an amalgamation of culinary techniques, traditions and cultures from across the world. Exquisite dishes are simple, innovative, and capture both the raw and subtle flavours of The Territory. With this in mind we bring you the Essence menu. Cultural diversity of the Northern Territory has been captured in the Essence menu. We have drawn on the fresh local market influences of Asia and the Pacific regions, the uniquely wonderful Australian bush foods, and the easily obtainable modern Western ingredients to bring you dishes, which represent the melding of where cultures meet. Essence philosophy is to live each season as it passes, taste the fruits, breath the air, welcome the changes and resign your self to the beauty of each. Our passion of this transforms a simple dish into a dining experience, which raises the senses, stimulates and excites.

Valentines Day Treat

I would rate this between a 4 and 5 Breakfast was excellent at Essences restraunt. Was disappointed the bar staff couldn't make my wife a mud slide cocktail even though they had all the ingredients, we just got a puzzled look from the bartender. After ordering a different cocktail it took 20mins to receive it. A firm 4 but not a 5.

Perfect location near airport

Booked in late at night drawn a map to direct us to room but got lost in the dark and found room numbers hard to read. Finally found room and pleased with the overall neatness, cleanliness and spaciousness of the apartment. As we needed to fly out early morning asked for early wake up phone call, this didn't happen. Pleased to be taken by shuttle bus to the airport by friendly staff

Great location for red-eye flight!

This is a really nice place to stay but the biggest appeal is the proximity to the airport. Darwin's infamous red-eye flights mean you really just want to get off the plane and go to sleep - and this place delivers in a lovely, comfortable setting. Definitely recommend when the price is right.

Nice hotel near airport

Arrived at hotel had my name right but wrong phone number and address which i gave correctly. Room was very clean and comfortable inside but had wasp nests on the outside walls.. so not so good. Seemed people at breakfast there but no mention of its availability of it so didnt have it. Close to airport bit overpriced and needs to stop chraging too much for a late checkout. $40 for two hours is too much, especially when check out is 10am and check in is 3pm... a five hour period. Dissapointed by that and ruined the night.

Great pool area

Loved the pool area. Bar / restaurant very nice. Rooms are nothing flash but do the job. Staff didn't make up my room one day which annoyed me a little. Maybe a little overpriced for the quality of the rooms. Overall pretty good though.
