This is a solid four star hotel. Rooms are a good size and bathroom was spacious and adequately equipped. All was immaculately clean, sheets changed regularly and towels when needed, although no service at weekends. There was no in house coffee shop with a cafe situated by the front door. Perfectly located in Darwin to reach all destinations including the bus depot. Would stay again and will recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was quiet small, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a great shower. Everything was in walking distance to the hotel. Many bars and restaurants very close by. Taxi rank and Woolworths across the road and bus stop around the corner.

Close to a lot of things. We walked to several places. Room was excellent - a good shower that once set - i did not have to keep moving the handle. Friendly staff who were happy to assist with any enquiries. Everything in the room worked which was great. Comfortable beds. Great public transport - buses - as seniors we got trips free showing our seniors cards. Buses took us to several places we wanted to visit. Transport people and bus drivers very helpful. Laundry next to pool - very handy.
