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.

We were put up in the hotel after our Virgin flight was cancelled. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable clean room. Food in restaurant was nice with very friendly competent service. The pool is small but beautifully surrounded by trees so you don’t feel like you are in the center of a city. One strange thing is the only access to pool is through the restaurant. Good hotel location if you want to go for an early morning walk along the coast.

Hotel's Favourite
Lovely hotel in Darwin in great location. Has been refreshed and is now much nicer. Pool is a bit small but was never busy so not a problem and you can use the pool at the DoubleTree next door as well. Car parking is free (not undercover) Breakfast was ok but not worth $33 for the full and would be nice to have an omelette made fresh and coffee included. Staff were all excellent.

Rooms were modern, clean and comfortable, worth paying a little extra for a higher floor as sunsetting into the ocean is beautiful. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Great location. Easy access to e writhing but away from the last night strip. 10/10

It's of a comfortable standard one would expect of a Hilton hotel, but you'll pay a high price (over $400 a night) when slightly less comfortable/prestigous options are available which are more central. Its about a 20min walk into the centre of town and a taxi ride to Stokes Hill Wharf. So while you are comfortably accommodated, you are a long way from tourist attractions.

The staff were welcoming and friendly. Dinushka Goonathalake looked after us very well. Having stayed for a conference a previous week we were most appreciative of a lovely room opening onto the park overlooking the bay on our return from adventuring in Arnem Land. Our room was always fresh and light, the bathroom modern. We appreciated access to open air from the small balcony. A good variety of teas was provided. The atmosphere was relaxed, suiting Darwin's tropical feel. Freshly prepared breakfast on the terrace or indoors and excellent coffee available if desired. Easily accessible morning & evening walks in the park along the bay to town and nearby restaurants was an added bonus.

The hotel is very nice and the staff helpful. I got a room on the back, which was quiet (I'm not sure about rooms on the Esplanade road itself). Their pool is not great, but you can use the Doubletree's much nicer pool next door. The location is perfect for exploring Darwin.

Stayed two nights at the Hilton Garden Inn at Darwin. Room was quite large with everything that you would expect. A special mention for the Front Desk Manager, a lady from Nepal who was very helpful with a couple of technical problems in the room.

Might not look as new on the outside as other hotels but the recent refurbishment in the inside is great. Pros: - Free parking. Seem to be a few spare on the esplanade as well if needed but never filled to capacity. Have to pay for street parking. - New room furniture and hotel inside looks great, new and modern. - Pool area is small but looks tropical. Cons: - I think the the Buffet breakfast was little expensive for what it is. I was expecting tropical fruits, not ones from a tin plus rock hard rock melon and flavourless pineapple. The pancake machine didn't work and there is a coffee machine. Three standard cereals and standard bacon and eggs.Not sure what justifies the $35 buffet. - The bar gets rid of their empty bottles around 2130-2200 each night. If you are on the bottom few floors, you definitely hear it. I decided to go to sleep after this occurs as I didn't like to get woken up considering I had to get up a 5am each morning. Overall, will recommend and stay again.
