Recent guest reviews

Great place to stay. Was solo older lady and felt very safe. Room was excellent. Staff of the highest standard. Short walk to the commemoration of the Bombing of Darwin. Plenty of shade along pathways.

we enjoyed our stay the pool would be much more appealing if half saltwater or mainly salt so much healthier .breakfast was good ,we missed the fresh fruit the first morning only tinned on offer,th e room and view was excellent for the price very roomy thankyou.

A basic but very well kept hotel unit. No views to speak of, but I was only using the room to sleep in so views were not important to me. Awkward for someone with arthritic knees or other stiffness/mobility issues to get into or out of the shower as the shower located over a deep bath. Hotel staff very helpful,

We arrived early after a night flight and pre booked the room the night before. The hotel staff were very friendly, making check in as quick as possible. We had breakfast included, however we did not make it, as the bed were so comfortable we overslept. We were offered a wake up call! The rooms were clean and well stocked. We did eat in the telegraph bar, very pleasant. The location is walking distance for shops and attractions. Would stay again if ever find ourselves in Darwin.

Had a very nice and relaxing stay. Friendly and welcoming staff at Reception. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Hotel is very convenient to city restaurants and shops. We have stayed here a few times now and enjoyed all our visits.

A comfortable hotel with great rooms (stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment). Staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is very well located with everything you need a short stroll away. The only thing I think would be a great addition is a BBQ area near the pool.

Hotel room was very clean and well appointed, with everything one could possibly need. The bed was most comfortable. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The central location and all other favourable attributes make your hotel one I highly recommend.

An excellent place to stay, staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about local events. Rooms are of good standard, you are met with a wonderful aroma of lemon grass. Sets a wonderful standard for your stay

Restaurant was very clean and relax to dine in, very good set up for valentines date. Staff were very nice and approachable specially ira, jhelle and melody. They served exceptional food my duck curry has made my day complete.

Nice quiet hotel on the esplanade. Handy for good restaurants. Clean and tidy although bathroom a little dated. Staff very pleasant and friendly. Bus pick up point outside back door. Excellent restaurant for dinner. Breakfast good but basic
