Positive Reviews

Superb Staff

You’ll find that the staff members are willing to do whatever they can to make sure that your stay is pleasant and comfortable. They’ll be happy to book reservations, make recommendations about nearby points of interest, and are available 24/7 at the front desk.

Clean, Comfortable Rooms

The common opinion is that these modern rooms are well-maintained and inviting. Most guests have found the beds to be quite comfortable, and reliable room service provides fresh towels and toiletries as needed.

Convenient Location

The hotel is just a stone’s throw from Darwin Entertainment Centre. Other local attractions are also within walking distance, including Mitchell Street, waterfront restaurants, and shops. Sky City Casino is located nearby as well, as is Darwin Convention Centre.

Negative Reviews

Noise Travels

It’s been reported that noise from other guests travels easily throughout the hotel. Many guests suspect that there is lack of adequate insulation, as guests in the hallways as well as in other rooms can be heard easily.

Minimal Breakfasts

The complimentary continental breakfasts are a bit sparse, according to guests. You may find that there are only minimal options in the morning, so don’t plan on having a full cooked meal on premises each morning.

Showers Need Hand Rail

Guests have found that the shower seems a bit dangerous. Many have mentioned that there isn’t a bathmat, making the shower floor too slippery, and the absence of a handrail further complicates the situation. Take extra care getting in and out of the shower during your stay here.
