We booked an ocean view room which was little crampy to fit 4 of us ... mum dad preschooler and infant. We had double bed, single & hired cot. Air conditioning was freezing and i needed to wear jumper!! Room was clean and well maintained each day by the friendly house keeping staff. Staff at front desk were lovely very helpful especially when my 4 yr old son accidentally locked himself in bathroom within 10 minutes of arrival Great pool too

Has been a couple of years since we last ate here we came to have the buffet but discovered that it was American rib and chicken night mostly the choice was good so happy to come back again check which night it is as they have different themes throughout the week

I was booked into this hotel for a conference. the airconditioner was freezing, could not be adjusted. After 5 days of complaining was fixed only to turn into a sauna that once again could not be adjusted. Food in Vue was disgusting & service was non existent. Staff at reception very unfriendly.

Stayed in a Lagooon room (highly recommend over a standard hotel - better location and ambiance). Room was beautiful, comfortable and had great view of the lagoon pool. All resort amenities were great and staff very friendly (including restaurant staff). Walking distance to Mindill markets. Would have loved to have stayed longer.

Stayed 1 night each prior and post a fishing trip. Got upgraded 2nd night to lagoon room. Place has been extended to add a lagoon pool area with sand beach rooms that give direct pool access swim up bar. Great spot to say as rooms are good value, bars and restaurants in the casino, very good helpfull staff and cabs at you front door. Free wifi as well plus free drink vouchers.

We were graciously upgraded to a lagoon room. The original "Superior" room was very nice, but we only spent a moment there! The lagoon is gorgeous and the room was lovely. If you get a ground floor lagoon room you dive right into the lagoon from your balcony. Food was good, and so was the service. Highly recommended.

Made to wait 5 hours for my room to be ready only to be greeted by a dirty room covered in hair... Also be careful of the guy working behind the reception he keeps record of your credit card details and lately i've been getting weird charges on my card and also still no deposit return... If you must stay here pay cash only if this guy is working

We had 3 nights in Darwin after a fishing trip and spent them at the SkyCity. The reception staff were coldly efficient, however the concierge team were more than excellent... not only in good advice/local knowledge but in going out of their way to assist. The room was luxurious and had a great view over the lagoon/sea. The restaurants were passable, but not memorable.

The Skycity hotel is very nice and the room service is great. The only hassle is the aircon that you cannot switch off, or increase to at least 25 degrees. The rooms are so COLD, that you need to keep doors open to heat up the room. Everything else was great.

Having visited Darwin many times over many years, and stayed in the many hotels there, I think this is the pick. I stayed in the older "Hotel Rooms" as apposed to new "resort rooms". Hotel Rooms building Might be 30 years old but still very good modernized rooms. Couple of things let down the rooms such as TV channels on TV awkward to navigate and couldn't get 7 or 9 morning shows. Pillows and bedding I've had better. Swimming pools, gym really good. Breakfast you can't pick fault with. The main restaurant have themed buffet dinners each night. Tonight was American. $26.95. Really nice morning walks along esplanade and into Cullen Bay. Sometimes when staying in Darwin CBD you wonder where is everyone. At least st Skycity there is night activities at the casino and bars here. And if you really want, take a taxi into CBD if somewhere special you want to go to. I'll be staying here again. 4/5 when compared to Australia wide hotels. But probably the best in Darwin.
