Positive Reviews

Excellent location

You are right on the esplanade which is one of the most scenic places in Darwin. You can take long leisurely walks in the evening or visit the many cafés and bars in the neighbourhood. It's also a great spot for shopping with plenty of places to spend money right on your doorstep.

Views are exceptional

The views of the ocean are out of this world. If you can manage it, try to get an ocean view room with a balcony as it's well worth the extra cost. Even the city views aren't too bad, but if you want those beautiful holiday snaps, then it has to be an ocean view.

Five-star service

Yes, this is a four-star hotel, but the staff go above and beyond the call of duty to deliver five-star service. You can ask them anything at the front desk, and they will try their best to find the answer for you.

Negative Reviews

Rough around the edges

This place looks great at first glance, but it is starting to get a little shabby. The pool and public areas need to be taken care of more carefully while the rooms are also in need of an update.

No free Wi-Fi

There have been many complaints from guests that are not best pleased that they have to pay for internet on top of the high rates they are paying for their rooms and apartments. It feels like the hotel is making money off something that should be included.

Noisy area

This is a popular area for tourist and backpackers to visit and so you may end up hearing quite a bit of noise at night as partygoers make their way home. The rooms aren't soundproofed so you can hear every word that is shouted below on the street.
