Recent guest reviews

I had 5 nights in Darwin for work and my company booked me into DCH and I couldn’t have been happier with my stay. All staff were great, and particularly Belle from reception was a stand out and is a credit to herself and the hotel. I look forward to staying there again on my next trip. Mark.

Hotel was very clean and had everything you needed. It smelt nice when you walked in and the rooms were fresh and spacious. Staff were helpful and gave you a smile. Location was close to everything you need.

Great position and value for Darwin. New, clean fresh. Don’t waste your money staying on the esplanade in an old run down hotel. Secure, off street parking. Stayed twice in June, will be back. Friendly and helpful reception - especially personal greeting when arriving at 1am from the airport.

Spent 4 nights here and we were very satisfied by the standard of accommodation. We were upgraded to family room which was spacious and clean. Bathroom was rather on the small side but had a very good shower. The room needed a seating area with comfy chairs and curtains that extended farther to cut out the light. Hotel was quiet and the staff were helpful.

Stayed here for 1 night. No bathroom slippers !?!?!??? What !?!??!! :) Bath towels had a little bit of yellow spots with I cringed at, but ... other than that, it’s located in a prime location, a few mins walk away from crocosaurus cove and about 30 mins walk to mindil beach. It’s a pretty decent stay overall I would say.

Good hotel, stayed 1 night with my mom . The room was correct, loved the bathroom. Very poor choice on TV. Big thanks to Sandeep who saved us with my booking. She was really helpful and nice. She's a keeper. I do recommend this hotel.

A modern and clean hotel centrally located in downtown Darwin. Nothing very special but a very decent place and great price, room has all the necessary ameneties. And there's a very small pool outside.

Very comfortable room. There was an odour in lift possibly due to newness or poor ventilation. Reasonable price. No dining room but plenty of restaurants nearby. Shower very good and very good reading lights.

Stayed for two nights at this hotel. Great location, close to everything including the mall, supermarkets and waterfront. Check-in was quick. Rooms are good size and modern. Well set rooms that were very clean. Would stay again when in Darwin.

We were very disappointed with number of things for the price we had paid. Couch was extremely uncomfortable as the cushioning was worn, we couldn’t even sit on it to watch tv. We had to re wash all cutlery as it was filthy. Went to use the pool and there were cigarette butts all through the bottom. Went to make a coffee and it was all dried up in clumps and black. Then went to use the milk but was well out of date. An email was sent over two weeks ago and had no response!
