We stayed at Skycity for two weeks in August. We love the location of the hotel and always go for an ocean view, which doesn't disappoint. The older part of the hotel is now looking a little tired and could do with an update although still comfortable. The old Sunset restaurant has re-opened as The Vue which was supposed to...

Easily the best located hotel for a holiday in Darwin. Most hotels are in the city - surrounded by city streets. Sky City is right on Mindil Beach, and has lovely grassy surrounds. Wonderful sea views. Right next door for the Mindil Beach Markets twice a week. The markets have a fantastic selection of different cuisines, which everybody buys and...

Had lunch in the restaurant and that was quite enjoyable. The views from the rooms over the beach a really relaxing. Having the casion right there gives...

Mouldy smell as walking into the room. Mould over ceiling, walls. Dirty vents, breadcrumbs in the cupboard. Dirty quilt cover. Out of date mini bar items. Glasses dirty. What a disappointment. Even with handing over a maintenance request, there was no action. No question asked at check out time. What a disgrace and what poor management. This rating should be...

We stayed in the newer area, in a Lagoon Room. The room was well appointed and clean. Bed was comfortable for us, and the room was nice and cool coming in from 34 degrees outside! Whilst we didn't spend a lot of time in the casino, we did eat at a couple of the restaurants in there. One of the...
