Large rooms, clean and on a perfect location. Really friendly and helpful staff. We stayed here 3 months and this year we are back for another 3. Nice laundry, big kitchen and a nice pool with BBQ. Definitely worth your money! The staff is like family and the place is like being home, thanks guys! Much love, the Dutchies

Our room was fine, clean and the aircon (while noisy) worked. Outside the room was a different story. The lift didn't work, the general surrounds were grotty and the traffic coming in and out later in the evening was colourful to say the least. It is close to Mitchell St and walking distance to lots of places. However, more affordable...

exterior from the street and website photos look OK - this is far from the truth of the reality. Grimy accommodation to say the least - sheets were grey and had stains. Bathroom was not clean and we did not enter unless we had footwear. the people that run the place obviously DO.NOT.CARE. There were obviously long term tenants here...

Don and I had an enjoyable stay here for our last two nights on our trip up the centre. The room was very clean and the air con was heaven in the Darwin heat. The price is affordable and the location is very central to walk around Darwin. Thank you both for an enjoyable stay Don and Wendy England

This place is not safe for female travellers, a lot of shouting/ banging/ arguments from other guests and outside, police present on more than one occasion. Not particulary clean. Overall: sketchy. Wouldnt advise

I enjoyed my stay here. I was at the hotel for 3 weeks. I liked the fact that the owner and staff were friendly and very helpful. I felt comfortable. And had a great time. My room was clean. For a budget rate hotel, I found the price good. The pool area is great and i liked it's space. Very...

Flying to Darwin on barely 6 hours notice we found that very little accommodation remained available. The Poinciana Inn was centrally located and boasted tariffs comparable to the exotic resorts in town. Could it be that bad? Well yes it could. Arriving after midnight getting entry to our room was the highlight, after that there is really not a lot...
