We arrived after two and a half days in cramped conditions on the Ghan to find a welcoming large bedroom and bathroom and balcony. The facilties were clean, bed comfortable and the aircondioner relatively new and efficient. A key is provided which is necessary to operate the aircondioner. There is also a fan in the room. Tea, coffee a small amount of crockery and cutlery, an electric jug, refrigerator and microwave are provided. The guest laundry, on the first floor, costs $2 per load, there is also an iron and ironing board available in the laundry.
Parap Village Tavern is a short walk where the Raging Bull restaurant serves very good meals. A block further on is the Parap Village and Saturday market, both well worth a visit. The Motel Reception closes at 7pm however Dale, the Manager, is very hepful in making suitable arrangements for late arrivals to access your room. There is no breakfast available. Onsite car parking is provided. There is no lift/elevator in the motel.
The location of the Motel enables easy access to public transport and provides a quiet relaxing base for a visit to Darwin.More
