Completely average in every way. Room was damp and smelled weird. Breakfast was ok but pretty cheap food, location is ok but it's at a very quiet end of the esplanade and doesn't feel that safe walking around late at night. No free water in the fridge in 33 degree heat. Have stayed in other places along the esplanade which...

Other than the satnav sending us to the wrong building (or maybe we didn't pay attention) it was a smooth stay and service. Do make sure you get the right one, look out for the big 122 sign). The warm cookies and check in was a very nice touch, from now on I want all my 5 & 6 star...

The staff are friendly and helpful. Drinks are cold and the pool is refreshing. Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. The location is absolutely fantastic within easy walking distance to Darwin CBD and Doctors Gully. Great park to walk through across the road. Can walk to the waterfront. The pool is private and has lots of shade. You...

There are two Doubletree Hotels very close by. This was said to be the better one according to travelers. The hotel is so standard it could be placed anywhere in the World as a mid range Doubletree. There is nothing charming or special about it. Location is quite good to walk around in Darwin. Facilities are rather meaningless and small,...

Great service, very friendly staff. Will help with anything you need. Rooms are nice and clean, lots of space, modern furniture. Bathrooms are good enough for what you need. Pool is easily accessible as is everything else. Staff will also confirm outside bookings for you. Great services.

Staff are great. Rooms are serviceable but the position of the motel is perfect to access the CBD. By far our highlight was the staff of your restaurant. Lovely to meet the very personable Chefs Andy and Preveen and the lovely Christian who were all fab with our bored teen...made him feel special. Great company too! They are absolute assets!

This Hotel is well situated in the CBD, although it looks dated from the front, the rooms and interior are very modern and of a high standard. The service by staff is very good and they are attentive to you as a person. The pool and area surrounding is dated and needs modernising. The hotel is great value for money...

After a few days in rough accommodation in Kakadu, Katherine, and Litchfield, it was such a relief to stay here. Do yourself a favour and get a harbour-facing room so you can sit back and watch the sun go down.

This hotel is a great place to stay in Darwin. The pool, restaurant and bar offer a very relaxing environment. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Restaurant menu offers good options in a very nice setting. Nicely located on the Esplanade which provides a short stroll to the restaurant and bar strip.

The Double Tree Hilton is being renovated and guests are now using rooms belonging to the Travelodge. Sorry this is not a Hilton standard.
