    Unhappy campers
    Many of the rooms are comprised of bungalows which have louvered windows allowing sound to travel right through and into the room. The property is right next door to a new construction site which starts work by 6:30 am, the noise was horrific. Our bungalows were close to the construction and the hotel was full, we could not switch rooms and when we complained, staff said “oh construction is not suppose to start before 8 am, which is BS...did they offer us a discount on our room, NO!

    Great location but quite noisy.
    Great location on esplanade and within walking distance to wharf area. We stayed in a bungalow which was small but comfortable for 2. Good nice bathroom. Room is quite dark with curtains drawn which you have to do for privacy. Also quite noisy with adjoining bungalow room due to timber decking and sliding security door slamming shut. We could also hear cars in car park, suitcases being wheeled in and out and one night had some people wandering around on our verandah claiming they couldn’t find their room! However surroundings and gardens are lovely and tropical.

    Bungalow in downtown Darwin
    We stayed in a bungalow by the pool. The bedroom did not have a lot of space for luggage due to a chair, a desk, a cabinet, and a dresser that took up most of the space around the bed. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was small but functional.

    Enjoyable stay in Darwin
    Clean, comfortable place to stay with good access to cafes, restaurants and the city shops. Our room was a reasonable size with a ceiling fan, an air-conditioner and windows that could be opened Staff were efficient and helpful. It was a popular venue resulting in some noise at night and early in the morning with people arriving and departing. Parking was also limited which did create a few problems but despite this we would definitely stay there again.
