Pretty good, the one thing which was interesting was that the bed only had 1 sheet. This I gathered was standard in their rooms.

Inadequate parking.
The underground Carpark is too low for 4WDs with anything on their roof. This is a major consideration for travelling persons to Darwin. Had to park in paid street car parks which is insecure over night. We'll stay somewhere more appropriate next time.

Fabulous service
We had a lovely stay. The hotel staff are all very friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable but had a musty smell when we first arrived. The hotel is lovely, but old. The area is right in the clubbing precinct so perfect for anyone wanting to hit the town. I was confronted by homeless and indigenous people out the front of the hotel on a number of occasions. I wouldn’t go out walking around at night time alone in the area.

Good value centrally located hotel
Nice stay in central location to Darwin city attractions. Only gripe was the pool was closed for 'maintenance' for the whole weekend we were there which being the busiest tourist time seemed the wrong time for maintenance. Other than that it was a good stay with comfortable rooms and pleasant, friendly staff.

Brilliant location with a short walk to the waterfront and bars. Cheap and central, no frills but ultra convenient.
