We stayed here one night on our way home from Darwin. It's in a great central location and is easy walking distance to a great variety of restaurants and clubs. It has just been refurbished and the rooms are looking fabulous and really comfortable. The staff at reception were really friendly and welcoming. There is free wifi but we couldn't... More

Room slightly dusty, TV didn't pick up all channels, but otherwise very comfortable, nicely furnished. Excellent value for money, good location. Close to dinner and breakfast options. We would recommend to others and stay again.

Stayed 4 nights. Room was nice, with very comfortable bed. Room completely serviced each and every day. Renovations were underway to areas within the hotel however did not affect my experience at all. Pool was cool after a hot day. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend as excellent value for money.

What more can you want, clean rooms and friendly staff. Booked a hotel to avoid the heat, and we were delighted with our choice. Room has TV with good channels, fridge, iron & ironing board, shower over bath. Loved our stay & at a very reasonable price. Would stay again.

I enjoyed my stay here! The staff were lovely and helpful. It is located within an easy walk of plenty of shops and restaurants. The bed was comfy and the shower was awesome! I found it slightly difficult to find and the parking was annoying but I would definitely recommend this place.

We arrived on a late flight; the receptionist was very cheery and obliging and check-in was quick and easy, Hotel is in central CBD and is excellent value for money. Rooms were very clean and offered the basics required. There is a coffee shop off reception on the ground floor which was also very appealing and value for money. There... More

The place is clean and has recently been refurbished. It's nice enough for a night and the location is great. One thing I found odd was that even tho it had been refurbished no exhaust fan was added to the bathroom so if the door is open while the shower runs the fire alarms activate and they advertise parking but...

I'll start with saying that Its not recommended for ppl with light sleep or for ppl that are looking for proper customer service! When I booked the room, as well as on checking in I asked for a quite room. At 6am i've realized my room window is facing a construction site which is next to the hotel. When I... More

Right in the centre of town a short stumble back to the room from a number of great bars and restaurants the Chifley is well worth the stay. Ok a little dated and I will say that I really hope whoever painted the suite we were in during the renovations wasn't paid much but overall was a great stay. Other... More

It is an old building, the paint is peeling but it is reasonably clean. Water flow in the shower gets full marks. Staff are friendly and very helpful. When it comes to parking, best to park in the street. Free from 5pm to 9 am, $1.00 per hour but maximum 2 hours and no feeding the meter between 9 am... More
