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.

The room we got is really old room but in okay condition consider that it only cost $70+. However what is not acceptable is the sewage smell that coming from the bathroom. It seems like the room hasnt been refreshed or check prior to guest check in. We have to run all the water in shower n sink just to get the smell out. Later at the night, we were wonder why the room not cool despite the AC set at 16 full blast fan. We were surprised when we open the unit to see the filter and it was really bad. As soon as we take out the filter, the unit blows really well. Would I come back again to here? Probably yes, considering that it close to the airport and its cheap for my overnight stay before catching 4am flight every week.

Used Darwin Resort as our port of call while holidaying in Darwin, before road-tripping back to Alice. Found the resort to be almost ideal. It's not in Darwin City itself, which would be a problem if you don't have a car, but for those with cars, Darwin and Casurina is only about 10 - 15 minutes away, while it's also ideally situated for getting away from the city and out to Litchfield for the day. It also has quite a nice pool, and unlike many, actually has shade for it. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the restaurant is shut, but since we were on a budget holiday, that wasn't such an issue either. There were a number of takeways within a 5 minute drive, and we ended up eating at Casurina or Stokes Hill Warf anyway. Staff were professional and friendly, rooms were... well, hotel rooms. Airconditioned, clean, no noise - what more can you really say? Thoroughly recommend for families with cars.

I generally had no issues with my accomodation - the rooms were pretty standard and normal for cabin standard - my only tripe was that I had washed my hair on the last day and my hair dye had slightly stained one of their pillows (a semi permanent dye) and I was charged $30 for “tampering” with the pillow. A little ridiculous and steep in my opinion considering 1. The dye would have washed out and 2. The pillow case itself would of cost bugger all to replace

the room we booked didn’t look anything like the room I booked through bookings. Room was very old and in need of an upgrade. A worker had his work radio placed outside our door at 6.30am we were wondering where the music was coming from and woke us up after 4 hours of sleep from our early morning arrival flight. Very Old bathroom Windows rattled when cars drive past. Dirty towels with lipstick stain. Very disappointed in the room.

The cabin rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking outside room Quiet environment- Pool was lovely. A perfect stop over for us after a late flight. Key collection was easy. Possibly could have helped if a map was with the key so that we could find our cabin easily in the dark.

Such a bad room. Reception shut at 3pm. One pool isn’t open and dirty. Got to room. Blinds broken, dirt all over the floor, feminine hygiene packet left in the sink of bathroom. Feminine hygiene products left on fridge. Someone else’s body wash and shampoo in shower. No remote for television. There is no number for after hours except to another hotel. Do not recommend to stay here. I am tempted to find somewhere else for the night. The room we stayed in may not been serviced at all.

Close to the airport, and easy to find. After hours check in is easy with the passcode and key safe at the front entrance. It is a little bit dated compared to the photos. The rooms are lacking a bit of maintenance and the gardens are a bit run down. However, the units are comfortable, clean and roomy. Easy parking outside the unit and the pool facilities are lovely with a BBQ and seating. Fast and reliable wifi with great aircon and fans. The reception is only open till 4pm daily but I would happily stay there again. Note there is a bit of aircraft noise as it ls located opposite the airport. Please remember this is a caravan park style location, not a five star hotel. I note a lot of the the reviews are very negative, but it is reasonable for the price paid. I would recommend it for business trips, if you are travelling on your own or with families. Just don't expect a perfect room and surroundings.

What an absolute terrible place to stay “Do Not” book this place. The room is nothing like the pictures on Booking.com obviously photo shopped. Our room has not been serviced in over a week, paying top dollar for a 3rd world facility. Asked at reception when our room would be serviced, told they only do it every 3 days… obviously the owners can’t count.

Value for money it is well worth it. The shower was hot the bed comfortable with clean sheets. The staff friendly and professional. BP was next door. Close to the airport. Yes it could use a facelift but I didn’t want to waste $1000.00 for two nights in Darwin. It was a Tv in the room plus tea and coffee facilities. For a one or two night stay I was happy here.
