Hotel positioned in what feels like a good local neighbourhood of apartments with a variety of restaurants and local shops within easy walking distance. The hotel is clean and reasonably well equipped and staff friendly. Our waterfront room had fixed shower over the bath rather than separate.
The ambience of the hotel restaurant (buffet breakfast and dinner) feels dated compared to other local choices, the food selection matches the ambience. Overall, okay for short stays but would be disappointed if staying longer. Uber pick up / drop off good from this hotel location.

Room tip: Would not us hotel for breakfast / evening meal
Date of stay: January 2024

Staff are lovely. Location is perfect for the NYE waterfront activities.

The place is tired but clean enough and this was purely a convenient booking. Very expensive. Imagine most places are on NYE though so our night’s stay wasn’t value for money. Twin room - room 410 had two small single beds. Unsure of other configurations.

The one NEGATIVE that needs to be highlighted was the odour/smell on the floors in common areas. It was intolerable. Very strong. Perhaps trying to mask the wet mouldy Darwin smell this time of year.

They need to reassess the smell itself and the volume used. We felt quite nauseous walking to the end of the hallway to our room. Thankfully the room was FINE. If not we couldn’t have stayed the night. We left early the next day.

If you have allergies or are sensitive to smells or prone to headaches perhaps check at time if booking how the odour is being managed. Severely unacceptable.

Room tip: Check if odour in hotel has been reassessed. Too strong and nauseating

Parking is a little awkward, and then getting from the carpark to the room was a bit of a trek with two small kids and associated luggage. The room itself was spacious enough, although the decor and furnishings were a bit outdated, and few of the finishings were damaged. The cost of the room was quite pricey, and the hotel restaurant was just as expensive. To put it into Darwin's perspective, it was probably on par.

Room tip: Parking is on site, but awkward if you have a medium to large vehicle. Explore the restaurants around the hotel, and probably venture into the CBD.
