    Great value hotel in fantastic location

    We stayed for 9 nights in March 2021 (having stayed previously for a couple of nights in November 2020). Great location, hotel is located in a quiet side street , easy walking distance to the city centre. Rooms were modern, clean and comfortable - great king size bed. Free light breakfast (cereal, fruit, toast) - very good. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great value for money - would definitely stay here again when we next visit Darwin.

    Comfortable and clean

    The room was pleasant, comfortable and clean. The only issue I could see was having to have the small rubbish bin to hold the bathroom door opem - very strong spring. Breakfast was basic continental with coffee, tea, fruit cerals, breads, yoghurts and juices.

    Great service

    We can not praise the staff at this hotel for there service. We had to go into isolation after arrival due to Melbourne going into lockdown again until we had had a covid test and returned a negative outcome. The staff delivered any requests for food and drinks and looked after us until we were cleared to leave the hotel. Can not thank them enough.

    Good location and price.

    Had good experience. Got early check in, quick service, plenty of parking, bed fine, not much on bed in way of covers. Bath awkward, have to step into for showers, very slippery and could be dangerous if elderly. Basic breakie next morning. Gave later check out when requested.
