    The hotel has an excellent pool area and very friendly and helpful staff. For a hotel in this price range though I would except that parking would kit be in an unsecured car park in the next building. Also wifi should be provided in this day and age and not an extra cost.

    Great water view from our one bedroom suite on the esplanade. Great service from friendly staff. Fantastic central location of Darwin. Only thing that I can fault is the rooms don’t have balconies so no fresh air,& the shower pressure was terrible.

    I'd like to see a few more "family" friendly options - Cookie was a nice touch, but i would prefer a bath mat for the tub, extra bins, maybe a communal nappy changing/parent facility on each level? Somewhere to dispose of nappies would be excellent.

    Good chioce for a night or two.

    This place is a 80s time warp and the decor, especially of the rooms wont win any design awards. However, the hotel is spotless clean, the beds are comfortable and the provided toiletries are of high quality. The pool is large and good for lap swimming. Prices in the restaurant and pool bar are fair. Breakfast is just adequate and they DO give you the choice of "full breakfast", Continental or just a cuppa. Friendly and fun staff.
