Spent the week working in Darwin and as always rarely see the sights or time to relax. Decided this time around to ignore the horrible 12:30am flight full screaming babies traveling throughout the night and book onto the 2pm flight to Sydney the following day. So glad I did as it gave me a chance to book into Skycity Darwin...

We stayed in the hotel in a standard room. The room was quite dated and small, good bathroom though. All the hallways were very moist so one had to be very careful not to slip. The pools were great - highly recommend them. However you probably need to decide if a good pool is better than being in/close to town....

We arrived in Darwin at 5am in the morning after flying through the night and I knew I would just want to go to bed and sleep. That is why I booked a lagoon room. We got there soon after 6am, climbed into bed at went out for at least 3 hours and didn't hear a thing! It was so...

Stayed here over 4 days. First negative was at the reception; i was informed my credit card was malfunctioning and that the chip may be damaged. Asked for a new card; lucky my wife had a spare card. Turns out the card was swiped twice [ by receptionists] in succession and so it 'locked' for safety by the bank. Friendly...

I stayed 3 nights in an small ocean view room with balcony. The bathroom was adequate and the bed, very comfortable. The hotel is close to the beach and ocean walk but there is no shopping centre or supermarket within walking distance. The bar fridge was tiny and full of mini bar drinks so there was no room for a...

Had a lovely Easter lunch here. Good service and food. We took a while to order and were fairly hungry by the time it came. In the meantime they were very helpful in refreshing drinks. Coffee was great. The food was good but not adventurous.

We had an older style room in the hotel part. the whole place smelled either musty and damp or strongly of air freshener. Seemed a little grubby overall. The spa brochure was much thumbed and gave us cause for concern since we were booked in there. The spa was very nice however and the treatments and staff were professional and...

This was the 2nd time for myself. 1st time for my husband. There are some negatives and positives. Negatives: Internet was rubbish could never get on to it. No free schuttle service into town. Had to catch cabs which would charge you $6 before you even get into the cabs. Front desk promised something then did not deliver. On checkin...
