Excellent Customer Service

We had a fantastic stay at the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The location was central, within walking distance to major sights in the city area. The customer service at the reception was excellent. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful, attending to every request of the guests. Overall the hotel was value for money, in comparison of Darwin Hotel rates.

Good value city location

Good central location for Darwin and a very spacious, comfortable room. Staff were helpful and informative. Better than many hotels in Darwin costing a lot more - definitely worth considering for a no frills but great value option.

Very good.

There was some confusion when booking in! Initially Staff wanted to charge an extra $45 per night for the 4th person, but after checking and some delay everything was as booked and paid for.

We would stay again.

The facilities were all very good. Pleasant room and the breakfast buffet was excellent value. They did not have a restaurant and referred us to a "take away" next door, but there were some great places to eat a few steps away.

they were responsive and worked to combine a separate reservation with this so we did not have to move. You can walk to all the city's sites. We had an awesome view of the ocean.. THe pool was perfect temperature and perfect for pool exercises. The staff was very helpful. It is the ultimate location in Darwin. The room was spacious and comfortable for us. We were thrilled. PS we've already told friends that if they go here, they have to stay at the Central

In Transit

Great location, very short walk to the centre of Darwin entertainment and excellent restaurant variation. if you couldn't find something suitable within ten minutes walk you'd be bloody hard to please. Great room, good view of harbour. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Very restful day and a bit between full on fishing trip in Arnhem Land and flight home to Perth.

Good

The hotel is nice, it's aging a bit and it's a bit pricey, but I think compared with the rest of Darwin it represents good value. The real killer is the cost of internet (over $10 an hour) and that at the time I was there Wifi wasn't working with Apple products. There's a washer and dryer for $4/each. Breakfast is filling with a lot of options. The staff was helpful. They stored our bags and gave us 30 minutes extra for a late check-out.

Go next door to the restaurant Salvatores, you can hang out there and use free wifi (actually from McDonalds and a travel company that are located nearby, but Salvatores is a nice spot to hang out
