Recent guest reviews

I stayed here on business for 3 nights in May - it's an extremely convenient location (for meeting with CBD based clients, as well as for restaurants and other services), the hotel service is excellent, and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Nice, quality hotel with pleasant rooms and a good breakfast. Central to everything, within walking distance of the waterfront, Stokes Hill Wharf, the Esplanade and plenty of eateries. Would recommend to anyone visiting Darwin.

We were very comfortable and well looked after at the Darwin Central Hotel. It was within walking distance of everything we required or were interested in. Very easy walk to Information Centre and bus pick-up.

Very good location with it being central to everything. Good rooms, service andbreakfast. we found everybody was very polite and friendly and the valet parking was very handy. The pool was also enjoyable

Nice hotel. Clean and nice big rooms and very large beds. Good breakfast, near to shops and short walk to the harbour. Near to restaurants. Out luggage stayed there when we were in Kakadu. No problem.

Good location in the middle of Darwin CBD. Staff friendly, breakfast is excellent. Not a top of the range hotel but pretty good on the whole. Valet parking at $19.50 a night adds to the expense. Would stay here again, I was there for business but it would be suitable for a holiday as well.

I really enjoyed this hotel Room was spotless and the bathroom was so clean.. Very ice toiletries provided daily ad staff were very co-operative and helpful. Breakfast was tops, nutritional and plenty of food for all.

We had a major urgent problem to be solved. Although the hotel was not party to our problem in any way, the reception staff immediately volunteered their assistance and played a pivotal role in solving our problem. We left the hotel five days later with the best impression of staff and facilities.

we arrived late afternoon and we were welcomed by lovely staff, Great location central to everything. Room was clean and spacious, serviced everyday. Tea/coffee facilities in room. WIFI available but not free. Guest laundry available. Restaurant for breakfast, a great variety to choose from. Staff were always very helpful. Would stay there again.

The Darwin Central Hotel is a modern hotel well located near the centre of Darwin. Rooms are spacious and clean and very modern. Facilities are well located and staff very helpful and efficient. It is an easy walk to most locations or transport. I would have no hesitation i staying again and enjoying this comfortable hotel.
