Recent guest reviews

Fantastic location, room was spacious. Staff were helpful and friendly. Beds were comfortable. One of the best features was no traffic / nightclub noise was heard. Had a great stay will be back again.

We could not get over how clean Darwin was And no writing on the wall. We loved everything about darwin and the tours we did . We caught the Ghan from Adelaide . So we have had a wonderful holiday . Love the crocodile tour and a wonderful day at the races for st Patrick day . Rung by the pub. A great way to finish our trip as my husband comes from Galway Ireland. . Living in Aussie 46 years

The room was pretty good for the price. I wish that house keeping had not walked in 10 minutes before check out but other than that it was a nice hotel and was fit for purpose. I would stay there again on a Saturday night.

Friendly and hospitable. The room was great value for money and close to bars and restaurants and local attractions. All within easy walking distance. Offered valet service although was not required. Easy check out

Excellent location, spacious rooms, helpful and genuinely warm staff, value for money. Turned a trip at short notice into a bit of a holiday! The thing I liked best was the multicultural mix of people who work at the hotel, and without exception they were all attentive and friendly. Maybe that's just Darwin, but it was really uplifting.

I would stay here again and recommend this hotel highly. Large rooms, brilliant shower, comfortable beds, valet parking, friendly staff and well located in the heart of the city. We loved our stay here.

Always a pleasure returning to Darwin Central - personnel are welcoming and recognise me from previous stays. Check-in and check-out is a breeze, rooms are well serviced and maintained. Convenience of location to CBD and local attractions. Happy to stay at Darwin Central!

Stayed for 3 nights and found it a great place to stay. Arrived at 1 am on a Sunday morning, a lot of drunks around and noisy music but the room was very quiet.The gentleman at the checkin desk was very obliging with all our needs, nothing was too much trouble. We had a car and it was never a trouble to go and get it for us. Staff were all very friendly. Rooms were very clean and it was always made up when we returned even if it was before lunch. Air conditioner was great especially with the humidity. Overall it is a great place to stay as very central.

Darwin central hotel is a pleasant convenient place to stay in Darwin. I would recommend this to visitors to Darwin. the staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is located to many good restaurants and pubs. I'll keep using the hotel when necessary.

Good clean friendly hotel, close to bus terminal and just a short distance from the esplanade. Excellent security so we felt very safe. It would be great, however, if either Foxtel or DVD players were supplied.
