Superb Location

The hotel is indeed in Darwin's city centre, making it a prime location for anyone who needs to access the Central Business District. It's also convenient for tourists who wish to experience the restaurants, night life, and other points of interest that Darwin has to offer.

If there's anything you need, feel free to approach one of the helpful, hospitable employees, who will see to it that you get prompt assistance.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi is Lacking

Not only does Wi-Fi require an additional fee, but guests have also found that the signal is mediocre at best. You may want to make other arrangements to get online if you need to work or connect with friends during your stay here.

Parking is Extra

Guests were a bit dismayed to find that parking also requires an additional fee. If you're travelling with a vehicle, you'll need to plan to pay for parking at the facility, or park at a location offsite.

A/C Could be Stronger

It's been reported that the air conditioning could use some improvement, as many guests felt that it did not cool their rooms sufficiently.
