The parking is secure and surprisingly free for hotel guests. Customer service is fantastic!! We can't emphasise that enough. A bonus is the restaurant, room service,...

Excellent hotel and staff made to feel like home away from home. All my needs were catered for and staff were extremely friendly and helpful with questions and concerns. The service and food in the restaurant were of the finest quality and the room was comfortable and spacious.

I stayed here very tired after an overnight flight and the staff were very helpful. Really quiet hotel in a good location overlooking a park and the sea. Nice pool and good buffet breakfast. I would definitely stay here again for a longer stay.

Whilst the girl at checkin was very apologetic she advised the hotel had only 2 suites and both were closed. I enquired why I wasn't advised before arrival since according to her these suites...

The Double Tree Hilton is an excellent choice if you are going to a show as it is co-located with the Darwin Entertainment Centre. Great location - excellent staff - amazing pool. Great stay for a very good price.
