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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Adelaide, Australia1 contribution
I travel to Darwin regularly for work and have used Oaks Elan in the past as my preferred accommodation. I won't be returning, as there are plenty of other options in Darwin that are now much better. The pool is in a disgusting state with clumps of hair floating in it and broken tiles everywhere. Very rude front desk staff and generally unhelpful.

Hotel's Favourite
We had booked last minute off the website, then realised we had the wrong dates, but a quick phone call and all easily amended. Excellent value for money, was upgraded to a better room than booked and the bed! One of the most comfiest beds in any hotel in Darwin! Couldve slept in there for days! Great modern, clean facilities, eveything is in the room, would make a grear home away from home. Really good staff, made it easy to check in/out. Really couldnt fault anything! Breakfast included was more than we expected and good quality. Nice close to CBD location, will definitely stay again!

Lovely apartment with amazing views, wonderful bed, well equipped kitchen, fantastic breakfast, great gym and small pool but big enough to swim laps . Room service with prompt and delivered food was hot and amazing. Paid under cover parking easy to assess. Great location in CBD.

Credit where credit is due. This place is wonderful for a Business Trip or Holiday. The water view rooms have sensational views of the harbour & City in all directions. Location is very handy to the main shopping & restaurant areas with a short walk to the waterfront.The staff were pleasant and always willing to assist to any query or request. Rooms were smallish but had everything. Comfortable beds, good clean bathroom with rain showers. Small dining table, work desk and cosy lounge. Highly recommend as I have stayed at many places within the CBD and this place beats them all for price, quality and location.

We had a great stay here for 3 nights over the weekend. Excellent views, spacious 1 bedroom apartment, very friendly and helpful staff, lovely breakfast, and being close to everything made this a great place to stay. We also got a great price and will definitely stay here next time we come to Darwin. Highly recommended. Thanks to all staff at the Oaks Darwin Elan Hotel!

Fantastic place to stay. From the staff, to the location and to the amenities. This place has it all. I highly recommend it for any traveller. One of the lifts were out of order but that didn’t cause too much inconvenience. I’d happily stay here again

Long wait for lifts. Hot breakfast items need to be paid extra. Room is big and clean. Good view from top apartments. No room service during a couple of days stay. Easy to walk to Darwin waterfront area.

This hotel is in a good proximity to local attractions and restaurants. The rooms are old and in need of a refresh. I was travelling for work and the 1bedroom apartment was not suitable due to the port kitchen facilities.
