Arrived on a Wednesday and was greeted by a friendly staff member. The room was good but the air conditioner was very noisy at times. Seemed like it was worn out! The room was clean and functional and was a decent size. The drink voucher was welcome and the restaurant was exceptional. I started with garlic bread which was really...

I arrived in Darwin from Alice Springs (I took The Ghan), and after nearly three weeks of travel, I was not as full of pep as I had been when I arrived in Sydney. Darwin is hot, very hot, and so it is essential to have air conditioning. My room was very clean, but the air conditioner was a bit...

This hotel is older, but has excellent staff and great food. Rooms are both clean and spacious. It is conveniently located, a short walk to Thrifty to hire a car for a day or 2. They gave us a room upgrade to a suite, which was huge, with water views.

Was pretty disappointed that the kitchen was completely closed. I probably would have picked somewhere else if I had known - I had a small child to drag through the rain after work to get dinner and the breakfast at H hotel was terrible. Pretty disappointed with it to be hones. Hoping for a few upgrades in the future as...

The old style atrium with the plants is an interesting feature. good bar and restaurant the pool needs updating but its good value for money and in the heart of the city.
