Darwin Esplanade Central is the ultimate hotel for kicking back without leaving the convenience of the city. While staying with us, you'll be next door to services, including Coles (groceries), Liquorland, car rentals and chemists. Restaurants, cafés, bars and fast-food outlets line the nearby streets, so if you're feeling a date night or just hungry after a long day, you don't need to travel far. You will also find several local attractions within walking distance of your accommodation, including Crocosaurus Cove, the Deckchair Cinema and the Aboriginal Fine Art Gallery. Alternatively, you can rent a car to visit the famous Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, or Katherine Gorge. Take a calming stroll through Bicentennial Park and visit many memorial locations and beaches to dive into the area's rich history or enjoy the ocean breeze as it sweeps in. Along your walk, you'll also find children's play areas, a fish feeding sanctuary, picnic areas and beautifully manicured gardens. We recommend visiting at sunset to enjoy one of Australia's rarest views; watch as the late afternoon sun hides behind a distant shore and bathes the sky in rich hues of red and orange. Enjoy ultimate comfort in the best-value hotel on The Esplanade.

Good location but desk was never attended. On arrival in middle of day I had to ring a mobile number and wait for someone to come. There was no one there at check out or on the one other occasion during my 4 day stay that I wanted some local advice. The apartment was spacious. The bedroom was in an alcove not separate from lounge. No oven. An irregular assortment of utensils and crockery, cutlery in the kitchen - only one drinking glass but 5 wine glasses, one breakfast bowl but 4 saucers. No scourer for saucepans, no tea towel. Shower over bath and awkward to get in

This was the cheapest accommodation we could find in Darwin for a CBD location for 8 days. What a bargain!! On the Esplanade with all the other top class hotels, close to Shenanigans pub, Coles, Bicentennial Park, Peel Street with all its restaurants, shops etc. And that’s not all!! The room was older but was beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean, had everything that opens & shuts- washing machine, drier, dishwasher, iron, hairdryer, iron but no board, really comfy lounge, all you need for any length of time in Darwin. The air conditioning was excellent - just on and off, no fiddling, no dials, worked perfectly! This is so so important in the extreme Darwin climate! Reception daytime staff were excellent and the security guards on duty after hours leave a bit to be desired. They do their best but are quite inept. On the side we were on, we overlooked the youth hostel and Shenanigans Pub which were noisy till the curfew 10.00 pm so we couldn’t use the veranda, however, we didn’t hear anything when the door was closed. If we visit Darwin again, this would be our first choice!

Mark and Rodney were amazing hosts and even assisted by providing insightful and practical tips and suggestions with our DAR to Uluru itinerary. We loved the 1st stay so much, we came back on the return. Mark and Rodney went above and beyond in facilitating this. The apts are well-appointed, fully equipped and comfy. Thank you for making us feel so welcomed! N&C
