Review of Palms Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Apr 2015
We used their left-luggage service and had bags not arrive. Their quick and courteous help enabled us to track the bag and recover it from the airline. All their handling was on video and easy for them to check on our behalf. Thanks guys!

Reviewed 20 December 2014

Palms Motel is a simple motel in a good location. The motel is just outside the city centre but it is easy to walk in Darwin for shopping: it takes about 15 minutes to get to the shopping area and restaurants.

There is a pub across the road from the motel.

The motel is ideally situated for visiting the Botanic Gardens (10 minutes walk), Mindil Beach (15 minutes walk) and Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (30-40 minutes walk along the coast).

If you have a car, there is a car park. At the reception, the owners can call a taxi for you which is useful to get to the airport.

The rooms are a nice size and are clean. The bathroom has a shower. The room and bathroom are cleaned every day. The towels are changed everyday.

The kitchen is basic but absolutely fine for breakfast or having a ready meal using the micro-wave oven. Mugs, plates, glasses ...etc...are provided. There is a fridge and a TV.

The swimming pool is so useful after a hot day walking around.

On your first night, if you arrive after 9pm , inform the owners and they'll tell you where to find the key to your room.

We found the Palms to be basic but very clean and tidy with helpful, friendly proprietors. Good for those on a budget or with families. On a map it seemed close to town but proved a little far for walking, particularly with heavy bags of groceries (Woolworths being several blocks away). There is an inviting pool and a hotel restaurant across the road if you are not inclined to cook.

This hotel was reasonable cost for Darwin. It had a very nice pool area, which was very welcome after a hot day sight seeing. It was quite convenient for Mindl beach, a bit of a longer walk to the town centre. The room was basic, but was clean, although a gap under the front door did allow cockroaches to pay a visit, though they didn't stay long, I think the room had probably been sprayed. Hotel was nice and quiet at night, so got a good nights sleep. Overall a good choice if on a budget.
