Value for Price

I think Skycity Darwin need to improve on room comfort. I woke up early hours very hot & sweaty. Also they used to park your car for nothing, but now charge. I think for the price they charge for the rooms this should be free. Otherwise I had a great stay.

tired hotel

I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago and the standard rooms have not been upgraded in this time. Clean and comfortable room but dated. No help ofered by the concierge The parking was offered for $15 a day to park in an open lot with no security. The setting of this hotel is excellent with access to the beach and the casino.

Not keeping up with customer needs

The rooms are nothing like those that are pictured on your website - they are pokey and had a double and one single, not two doubles. The beds were uncomfortable and the shower had mould. The first room had no movies available, we were then moved with not much of an apology and the next room balcony had some sort of constant running water (maybe from an aircon) so you couldn't spend much time out there. The rooms have had some modernisation but are pokey. The staff are aloof, unhelpful and rude. Since the last time we stayed they now only have valet parking for guests so you end up parking a mile away with all the other casino guests and having to walk from a mile away with no direct paths to the hotel.

Awesome place to stay

From check-in the experience just got better and better. This is a diamond. Great sized room, sparkling bathroom, balcony with beach and pool view. Food great, staff go that extra mile, both pools are fantastic. Cant wait to go back.

I would not recommend

The staff at reception were unwelcoming bordering on rude. The only positive was the use of the free washing machines and dryers.

Dissapointed

Very dissapointed with our room. The ensuite extremely cramped with ants crawling along vanity. Fridge light didn't work, aircon smelly, room still wasn't made at 12pm checked out before the end of our stay.
