5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I liked the location in the centre of Darwin. Walking distance to everything I was surprised that the dining room was not open. But I understand that it was the beginning of the wet season and a lot of businesses close down or work on limited staff

We found the air con in our room very hard to adjust , too cold . Also the undesirables that hang around in the food court area next door are very off putting .

Good value. Only a couple blocks from the waterfront. Clean. Overall it was fine for a short stay. Pool area is weak. Breakfast is ok, but nothing special. Location is good with many casual dining options and a grocery store within minutes. Staff was good.
