This oasis in an urban setting is a great place in which to stay in Darwin. It is clean and well kept and the staff was wonderfully helpful in making our stay a memorable experience. There is everything one would need for a quiet comfortable stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the air conditioning works well, as does the in-apartment...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and being a part of your holiday. The rain would have made it interesting for you but always brings life to the tropics. Hope to see you again. Dry Season is just around the corner.

Stayed two nights in this lovely oasis in Darwin. The accommodation was clean neat and tidy with good facilities, e.g. air con, fans, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, TV, microwave. Staff very helpful. Our flight on last day wasn't until late and it was raining in the morning. Had asked if we could leave bags somewhere but Katrina said we...

We booked 2 x 2 bedroom apartments for a few days of Darwin city living with family. The rooms were clean, comfortable, well equipped and roomy. The pool was lovely and refreshing and enjoyed by all, especially the kids. A very central spot made it easily accessible to everything. We'd stay again. Thanks.

We stayed here for 3 nights with family from Perth. It really is very well maintained and clean. The rooms were spotless and the beds good quality. The manager was very friendly. It's location and proximity to all the city has to offer make this place a certainty for us to stay at again. Highly recommend and very children friendly.

We stayed at City Gardens Apartments, two adults and three children. We had a late check in, and it worked perfectly. Nice clean apartment, lovely pool area and really good service from staff. We had a really nice stay.

I stayed here for a week around the beginning of October. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful and well tended the gardens are. It creates the feeling of an oasis in the city. The new owner was really helpful, approachable and great to talk to about local sites and attractions. A great spokesperson for the delights of Darwin...

An awesome spot for 3 mates on Darwin fishing adventure, all the facilities to cook your catch, a pool to cool down in , every man to his own bed in a clean well presented apartment. Close walk to the pubs after a day on the water. I will be back , for certain.

Really appreciate your feedback and was glad to here you got some fish. Pity you didn't get the Million Dollar Barra. Hopefully we have a good wet season making fishing good for the runoff! The Million Dollar Barra competition ends in 28th Feb. Six $10,000 fish caught so far.

The apartment is good, very spacious, comfortable beds but cleanliness needs a little bit of attention esp. molds around shower and more sanitary papers (toilet rolls for long stay and tissue box even the kmart's 89 cents). Other than that, I will still recommend to others,
