  • 6,0.Good

    Room was noisy

    PCR is located in a very beautiful, central location near the NT state complex and CBD. Out room (253) was located - above staff service room and busy delivery traffic intersection. Heard heavy delivery trucks at 06:30am. By 8am, staff met in the area and chatting up a storm. A larger surface or table would be good - the existing counter is too small for a three person room.

    Perfect holiday

    Our first trip to Darwin, and couldn't have found a nicer place to stay. Our garden villa was only steps from the pool, but still had privacy. The bbq on our little verandah was a plus, but plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
