COMFORTABLE NOT VERY CENTRAL HOTEL BUT NOT WORTH THE EXPENSE
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Sept 2023
It's of a comfortable standard one would expect of a Hilton hotel, but you'll pay a high price (over $400 a night) when slightly less comfortable/prestigous options are available which are more central. Its about a 20min walk into the centre of town and a taxi ride to Stokes Hill Wharf. So while you are comfortably accommodated, you are a long way from tourist attractions.
Date of stay: September 2023
Room Tip: There is a good breakfast buffet by the nice pool. Many rooms have a good view of the ocean but...

Reviewed 14 September 2023

The staff were welcoming and friendly. Dinushka Goonathalake looked after us very well. Having stayed for a conference a previous week we were most appreciative of a lovely room opening onto the park overlooking the bay on our return from adventuring in Arnem Land. Our room was always fresh and light, the bathroom modern. We appreciated access to open air from the small balcony. A good variety of teas was provided. The atmosphere was relaxed, suiting Darwin's tropical feel. Freshly prepared breakfast on the terrace or indoors and excellent coffee available if desired. Easily accessible morning & evening walks in the park along the bay to town and nearby restaurants was an added bonus.

The hotel is very nice and the staff helpful. I got a room on the back, which was quiet (I'm not sure about rooms on the Esplanade road itself). Their pool is not great, but you can use the Doubletree's much nicer pool next door. The location is perfect for exploring Darwin.

Room tip: Use the pool next door- it's much bigger/nicer and has sun most of the day (this Hilton's pool is nearly all shaded).

Stayed two nights at the Hilton Garden Inn at Darwin. Room was quite large with everything that you would expect. A special mention for the Front Desk Manager, a lady from Nepal who was very helpful with a couple of technical problems in the room.

Lovely hotel in Darwin in great location. Has been refreshed and is now much nicer. Pool is a bit small but was never busy so not a problem and you can use the pool at the DoubleTree next door as well.
Car parking is free (not undercover)
Breakfast was ok but not worth $33 for the full and would be nice to have an omelette made fresh and coffee included.
Staff were all excellent.
