We booked in for a night in Darwin city to coincide with a show at the entertainment centre and were extremely pleased with everything the hotel offered from arriving to departing. Friendly service all-round, tasteful decor, nice room, on-site parking, fantastic location, drinks around the tropical pool and a great breakfast. Could not recommend enough! See you again soon!

The hotel was in a very good position. Would have liked a safe in room. Harbour view. Would prefer shower not in bath. White cups were stained. It doesn't take much to clean them properly. Room was large with one comfortable chair. Another one would have been good. Service was excellent and staff obliging. Would like to have seen more...

We have stayed here before and after this stay would not go anywhere else in Darwin. The beds are great, the appartments are clean, large 2door fridge/freezer so you can freeze all the fish you want. Don't look any more, just book it, you won't be disappointed.

Couldn't rate any higher. Did have a false fire alarm that woke me up which was unfortunate though. We found the location very central to the CBD and we had great views of the harbour. No furniture on Balcony for summer/Autumn months due to cyclone risk. Pool was inviting.

Hotel staff were all excellent in dealing with some problems we had re booking alternative flights. We were allowed to staff in our room FOC over the check out time. On the negative the bar shuts at 9. The hotel is tired. Having said all that it did us fine

As returning guests we were upgraded to the penthouse suite which was huge, had fabulous facilities and beautiful views. All staff were very welcoming and helpful. Great access to shops, restaurants and walking tracks. Can't wait to come back again.

This was a one night stop over. View was fantastic. Staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. I was given a suite which was very comfortable. My only negative comments would be no balcony furniture, kitchen needed deep clean and no TV in bedrooms. For one night none of these were too upsetting but for a family over a more prolonged...
