                  Great value for a great hotel rooms are large not cramped great bathrooms separate shower and bath great breakfast but book for it before u arrive or more expensive, overall best place to stay for groups familys or couples fully reccommend it

                  Nothing to say bad about this hotel

                  room was a good size with an excellent view. Staff were very helpful in giving me a glass of milk when I asked for it.

                  air conditioning was not cold enough in rooms and in particular in the public areas. I think there should be free wireless internet connection throughout the hotel.

                  The location was a plus... close to the beach & eminities. It was quiet and the view was great. I liked the seating arrangement in the room... the chairs were comfortable and the bathroom was clean.

                  It would have been nice to have a flat screen TV and iPod docking station. The afterhours room service was very limited; in fact, they were out of the first 2 items we requested from the menu.

                  We liked that it was very central and the staff were very pleasant.

                  Room was clean and had all basic requirements

                  The remote for the TV diidn't work. The shower was basically unservisable, it was either extremely hot or cold

                  pool, convenience of location, near to scenic park that a had craft fair during out stay

                  It was comfortable, and close to where needed to go for our Xmas function. Staff helpful. Room upgrade nice except fpor the problems we experienced to start with.

                  Problem with the door lock it wouldn't open. While the staff attempted to fix it he forgot to come back with the key until I went and got it,we had rung for it once. We had no airconditioning during this time. Once we got the key it still didn't work. The duty manager tried but it required engineering to come and replace the entire lock. When the aircon did work a blocked pipe caused it to flood in the bathroom. This took over 1 and 1/2 hours from check in. (we were offered to change rooms but decided it would take even more time so that's why we stayed).

                  Old-fashioned facilities in the room (air-con and tv not functioning great). Did not have hotel manual in my room on arrival and had to ask for room service menu to be provided. Menu very limited in terms of vegetarian options

                  Location, room comfort, facilities.

                  Noisy children in main lobby/resturant area and staff doing nothing about it. High main lobby atrium amplified noise and as rooms open onto atrium walkways projected it into rooms. Staff should be aware and ask parents to control children. Poor management.

                  On their website they state that they have wifi, but what that actually means is that you can have a 20-minutes connession from the lobby only per day. No wifi access from the rooms at all.

                  Great location close to the centre of town. I got upgraded to a suite, which was massive and had a great view over the water. Really friendly reception staff. As far as Darwin hotels go, it was reasonable value for money.

                  Decor was somewhat dated. Shower was very small, especially in comparison to overall size of the room, had poor water pressure and took ages to get hot.

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  The staff was very friendly & helpful. The hotel was comfortable & in excellent location with good view of the sea. The car park was convenient & easy to use.

                  The room decor & furnitures were obviously dated & uninspiring; not living up to the 4 star rating of the hiotel & the price it charged. We couldn't help feeling that we were staying in a high class motel. Even the breakfast buffet was boring. The menu never changed in the 7 days that we stayed there.

                  I found the staff to be courteous and very helpful. The restaurant food was tasty. The bedroom facility was comfortable.

                  The staff were amazing and the hotel outlay was great. Good food, quiet rooms.

                  Shower was very weak water pressure, airconditioning left a lot to be desired, not cold enough and they need to upgrade to flat screen TV's in the rooms asap.!.

                  The friendly staff - very professional. The location and ease of getting to the main street of Darwin.

                  The noise of other guests on the same level when entering or leaving their own rooms was very loud and you can hear a normal conversation between people (as they walked down the corridor) through the door. Not a very restful night's sleep because of that. If I had been staying longer than the one night I would have asked for a room change.
