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.

Well run serviced apartments, good value for money, and well positioned. I have stayed here many times over the years and keep returning. Its not a 5 star hotel so you need to keep your expectations in check, but it has everything you need - enjoy!

The room was clean, cool and comfortable with beautiful views of the Cullen Bay Marina. I stay here regularly for work and find it very convenient to the Marina restaurant precinct although this trip everything was closed up following the Christmas/ NY break. Check in/ out was easy and without issue.

Cullen bay Resort is my favorite place to stay when in Darwin. The management and staff are fantastic, the rooms are comfortable and rooms are reasonably priced. I have previously stayed in many Darwin hotels over the years, but after finding Cullen Bay Resort, I won't be going anywhere else in future. Jim Raz

I've stayed several times, previously, at the Cullen Bay Apartments and always enjoyed my time there. As a result, I keep returning, whether for family holidays or, in this case, a combination of both business reasons and family fun. Once again, I wasn't disappointed, and neither were my husband and sister who had not stayed at Cullen Bay Apartments before. My initial booking was made over the phone, direct to reception, and as always, the staff were warm, very human and organised. This manner was continued when we first arrived and were greeted by friendly, very efficient reception staff. Our room was just lovely. The view was beautiful, the apartment, super clean, extremely well appointed, with very comfy beds, and tasteful little finishing furnishings and touches added a real warmth to the place. The kitchen area, in particular, was very well stocked. So often guests have very limited cooking appliances, utensils, crockery, glassware etc but there was no shortage here. Not that we used them much, but it's tremendous for a family who might like to save money by cooking at "home" and/or just enjoy a meal looking over the the scenic Cullen Bay Marina. We also had a good sized balcony, yet again, with a magnificent view..... perfect for a late afternoon G&T. There's a well kept pool, sufficient parking, and the CBD is just a short drive away. With so many positive features, including very reasonable prices, the Cullen Bay Serviced Appartments will continue to be preference number ONE for my next Darwin visit.

I always stay here when visiting Darwin, and am always happy:) This hotel is well priced, however, I did pay a little more for better accommodation and it certainly didn't disappoint so was well worth it. FYI, stayed in room 809 on top floor. It was a beautiful self contained 1 bed apartment overlooking the marina with stunning views. The apartment had been updated to include a new kitchen which had everything in it you could ask for including a washer/dryer and full size fridge. Cupboards were well stocked with utensils/pots/pans for home cooking if required. Full credit to the owner of this apartment for decking it out so nicely and making it feel like home. Did I mention the views?:) Waking up to that water view is amazing and made the heat on my holiday much more bearable. Of course icy cold air con was provided in both rooms. Bed was also very comfy and wardrobe space was great...extra coathangers were definitely appreciated. I must also mention that nothing was too much trouble for the staff, allowing us to stay a little longer as we weren't flying out until late, but of course, it was going into wet season, so hotel wasn't full. Hotel foyer was stocked with not only food/coffee but all the touristy brochures you would need for your holiday. Happy days, I will be back yet again, thank you Cullen Bay Resorts, you're awesome!!!

Stunning view of the marina and very centrally located in the beautiful Larrakeyah. Lola’s pergola just down the street and the casino and lovely seafood restaurants all within walking distance. City is a short drive or certainly walkable. friendly staff and great value. Highly recommend and will be back for sure! Highlight was definitely the view and comfortable accomodation

Spacious apartment with lounge and kitchen facilities, and balcony overlooking Marina, separate bedroom with very comfortable bed. Bedside lamps a little wobbly! Nice outdoor swimming pool area. Overall resort just a tad tired. Location within easy walking distance to picturesque foreshore and a variety of restaurants in the bay. Bus stop to city or Hop on Hop off bus right outside resort. We enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending your resort to friends. Your reception staff could not be faulted in attending to our needs, with accommodating and friendly attitude.

Cullen Bay Resort is an excellent value for money accommodation in the charming area of Cullen Bay. The staff are friendly and welcoming and kindly extended our stay as we were departing on an evening flight. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The are a little dated, but this does not deter from a pleasurable stay. The pool is great with plenty of shade. Pool towels would be appreciated at the pool site. I would recommend booking Cullen Bay Resort.
