Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Located onthe waterfront and some walk to city centre and sights so choose your hotel according to needs. Somewhat irritated to be put in a poor room with view of a Car park wall when the hotel was only 50% full. Told this was because i was oart of a tourist group but ?? we are still guests. They moved us OK to a lovely room but same thing happened again when returned from Katgerine 3 days later. Sense of lack of care for the guests. Breakfast nice but chaotic as not enough staff. This is a general problem in NT. Pool was nice. Good waterfront walks and restaurants nearby.

I have sent a list to management hopefully they will consider undertaking some maintenance or at least budgeting for it in the next couple of years. It’s a great location and was a great place to stay. I was disappointed to see it looking so unloved.

Hotel positioned in what feels like a good local neighbourhood of apartments with a variety of restaurants and local shops within easy walking distance. The hotel is clean and reasonably well equipped and staff friendly. Our waterfront room had fixed shower over the bath rather than separate. The ambience of the hotel restaurant (buffet breakfast and dinner) feels dated compared to other local choices, the food selection matches the ambience. Overall, okay for short stays but would be disappointed if staying longer. Uber pick up / drop off good from this hotel location.

Darwin, Australia46 contributions30 helpful votes
Staff are lovely. Location is perfect for the NYE waterfront activities. The place is tired but clean enough and this was purely a convenient booking. Very expensive. Imagine most places are on NYE though so our night’s stay wasn’t value for money. Twin room - room 410 had two small single beds. Unsure of other configurations. The one NEGATIVE that needs to be highlighted was the odour/smell on the floors in common areas. It was intolerable. Very strong. Perhaps trying to mask the wet mouldy Darwin smell this time of year. They need to reassess the smell itself and the volume used. We felt quite nauseous walking to the end of the hallway to our room. Thankfully the room was FINE. If not we couldn’t have stayed the night. We left early the next day. If you have allergies or are sensitive to smells or prone to headaches perhaps check at time if booking how the odour is being managed. Severely unacceptable.

Parking is a little awkward, and then getting from the carpark to the room was a bit of a trek with two small kids and associated luggage. The room itself was spacious enough, although the decor and furnishings were a bit outdated, and few of the finishings were damaged. The cost of the room was quite pricey, and the hotel restaurant was just as expensive. To put it into Darwin's perspective, it was probably on par.

The standard of hygiene has changed. Apparently the hallways and elevator don’t receive the same standards as the rooms. This was very disappointing and to be given the wrong room number from the start put a big downer on our stay.

Dear hastings290, Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. I assure you, our stringent hygiene standards are of paramount importance, especially as we exit pandemic conditions. Our clean touch program, which is an externally audited cleaning and sanitizing program, is still in force in public areas and manning in these areas, remains fixed, despite seasonality. I will ensure your comments are shared with our housekeeping and management teams - there can never be a let up in cleaning standards. Thanks again for sharing your comments with us hastings290! Through your feedback, we are able to better serve all our guests.
