Great apartment with kitchen on the 7th floor overlooking the marina. Air conditioning was perfect. Pleasant swimming pool and always ample car-parking. Staff were more then helpful with any request. Our only negative comment would relate to the kitchen. More attention should be made to those who wish to self-cater rather than takeaway and restaurant visits. We found utensils and serving dishes etc were lacking and the appliances need upgrading. We understand this is the responsibility of the owner of the apartment. Despite this we thoroughly enjoyed ours stay.

$300 a night Not sure of condition of other units but building looks very tired! 701 Avoid this 2 bedroom apartment, with one small ensuite style bathroom, In a sad sad state with broken furniture, blinds held up with peg, had to request bath mat,hand towel and face washer, and extra soap ( we were given one single tiny soap) Shower flooded each time one of the four adults used it. Kitchen mixer taps were broken On the up side,nice verandah with view, air con worked, staff friendly and helpful, and location a 10 dollar cab to most places in town, walking distance to restaurants on the Marina

Spent 10 nights at this property. Great location and great apartment. Property has 3 pools, so loads of choice there. I would have given 5 stars, except for one thing - the shower was terrible (no water pressure)! Very clean and comfortable though and the staff were friendly and helpful. Cullen Bay is a 5 minute drive from the nearest supermarket, but reception has a good range of basic items (milk etc) to tide you over until you can sort yourself out. Secure car-parking available on site too, which is a bonus. Best of all - within walking distance of a range of restaurants.

I was staying at this establishment in Feb/March of 2017.Nice and clean rooms, the staff were friendly and very helpful/knowledgeable about all my enquiries.Swimming pool was excellent.Nice and tidy premises.When I needed the toilet to be fixed it was done within an hour or two.Looking forward to staying here next February 2018.Cheers to all staff and maintenance at this motel.

Spent 5 nights at Cullen Bay Resort in one-bedroom unit on 8th Floor. Very happy, helpful staff, stunning water views over Marina& Harbour & sunsets on balcony are to-die-for. We cooked all our b/fasts & ate out for dinner. Only downside the bathroom a bit tired & the pillows too soft but they tried to help with brand new pillow. We parked on street the whole time & no problem. Loved Cullen Bay as just a couple of mins by car to W/worths, Coles & Mindil Markets on Thu & Sun & just far enough out of hustle & bustle of city life. Safe area. Our room had cooktop, microwave, washing machine & dryer. Highly recommend.

Stayed one night at Cullen Bay before going on a fishing charter. The staff are very friendly and helpful and if not for them would have rated lower. The view is great over looking The Marina. The appartment and its furniture has seen much better days. It's old, worn but clean. I wouldn't stay here again instead choose a more modern option as nothing is too far way in Darwin and traffic is minimal

Excellent views from the motel units, looking directly onto the Cullen Bay marina.The staff are very friendly and extremly helpful. The pool and surrounds are a great place to relax after a days sightseeing. An added bonus is the free wifi. The undercover parking is also a major plus in a tropical area.

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the room was more than adequate with everything we needed. We had to park on the street which was not a problem, there were no restrictions. We found the location easy to use as a base to explore Darwin.

My only concern with this place is when booking.Be aware that they also have the property next door, called Marina view,I think.We booked several appartments for a family function,when we arrived some were in the next door building not good ! I will say that after the don't care person on reception it was nice that the hotel manager stepped in and fixed the problem buy changing some rooms around.We had a great time ,lovely outlook,great pool

These apartments are a little tired but clean and comfortable. The views are amazing, I did request a good view. Easy walk to restaurants at Cullen Bay however I was disappointed how this area seemed to have died since my last visit, perhaps May is just the beginning of the season. Comfortable walk to Mindel Markets.
