          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The central location, close to restaurants and nightlife.

          • Single
            8.2

            The location was good, room clean and staff friendly.

          • Single
            7.8

            Good value, good standard. I routinely stay there for business trips.

            Air conditioning tends to be a little noisy, so I switch it off overnight, which might be a problem in summer.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The internal design, the location, the bathroom.

            Our room s,melt very mouldy and it was dark.

          • Single
            7.4

            The very pleasant and welcoming reception. The good housekeeping.

            The price is too high. Moreover, early arrivals (many flights into Darwin arrive late at night or early in the morning) are required to pay a full extra night even if your room has not been occupied the night before ( I arrived at about 6 AM). Also: for such a high price, at least internet connection should be complimentary but it is quite expensive.

          • Single
            7.8

            Good location, comfortable room

            Inadequate natural light to room.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Accessability to services, shops, tourist destinations etc.

          • Single
            8.8

            I loved the room with the big screen tv, having 2 double beds and buffet breakfast.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The hotel is very close to all of the Darwi cbd activities.

            No access to internet - only really wanted to print boarding passes - but a mid-major hotel should have internet access - even if user pay (had to use cafe across the road). Water in showers in the morning was cool and it was the coldest Darwin June for a long time and the shower had cold water. However, later in the day if you wanted a drink of cold water from the tap you had to run the water for 5 minutes to get cool water. Perhaps they were using solar water-heating, which worked very well during the day, but not good for morning showers. When mentioned to the front desk staff, they had no idea and didn's seem to care.

          • Couple
            5.8

            Location.

            Poor climate control in room. Expensive internet $11 per 1 hr.. Expensive laundry $8 per cycle $2 laundry deterg.. Expensive car parking facilities $14 per day.

          • Single
            7.0

            It's central, and familiar.

            I found the welcome abrupt to the point of being aggressive. Sign here, agree to that, give us your credit card, don't mess with us, we're watching you. I never felt I was the customer, or that they were grateful. Instead I was made to feel like a potential troublemaker on whom they were going to crack down. This is my third stay there. I think it will be my last.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Very convenient ewith very good staff

            A little more brightness needed in the internal space.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Great Location. Friendly staff at reception.

            $55 for additional person even though there are 3 beds in the bedroom.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Great location, clean comfortable hotel. The porter was very friendly and helpful.

            On booking in the duty manager did not explain one thing about the hotel. E.G. need to swipe card to use lifts!!!! Would have been a great help. Also no hair dryer in room. As it was a cool few days, lack of blankets in the room. On ringing for room service, was not explained that it came from the outside restaurant. Staff and reception had no customer service.

          • Single
            8.8

            Central location was very convenient to both the CBD/shopping and to wandering around park and wharf area. The overall feeling was welcoming and comfortable.
