Lovely comfortable rooms, very helpful and friendly staff and awesome location. Highly recommend. Would have loved to dine at the restaurant which was unfortunately closed due to Covid. Entire hotel had a lovely ambience and atmosphere. Was an absolute bargain for the price.

From the minute we walked in the reception staff were very happy and polite. We had requested an early check in which was no problem. Our room was on the first floor, it was of good size and immaculate, the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. House keeping was done each day. The pool was great after a big day out and the on-site restaurant was a bonus. Location was fabulous, across the road from taxi rank and 2 minute walk to Woolworths and the bus stop. To be honest we could not fault this hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay and would definitely stay again :)

H on Smith was used by the Luxury Escapes package we were on so choice to extend our stay to 5 nights. Good location to Darwin CBD, but then so is the waterfront accommodation and many others. Staf were friendly and courteous, however not all that effective. On check in on Friday we were not informed that our room would not be serviced over the weekend, and when it did get one one;y service in our 5 night stay it was to drop off fresh towels and empty the bin only. Good points....carparking access and complimentary, room size, bed comfortable, quiet form outside noise. Not so good....floors desperately need vacuuming, air con made a terrible noise like pipes draining.

Good location in the CBD, close to shops, Waterfront, Cullen Bay, restaurants. Hotel good 3-4 star hotel. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. Had a 7 night stay for average of about $164 a night with breakfast included. Breakfast turned out to be a continental breakfast which was poor so only used it twice and ate out instead. Good points, room clean, good size, comfortable bed, off road car parking, nice swimming pool, although small. Bad points, a/c issues, kept turning off, eventually rectified after 3 days, shower would suddenly turn hot, thermostat issues, poor breakfast, lack of lounges/chairs around pool so had to get in quick if wanted to relax around the pool, first floor view from the room window was of a multi story car park.

Good afternoon Paul, Thank you for your rating and review, our guests feedback is very important to us. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your continental breakfast during your recent stay with us. With regards to the maintenance issues, I do apologise that it took a while to rectify the air con and shower and have discussed with our maintenance team to ensure the process doesn't take as long in the future. We are experiencing a very busy time in Darwin, therefore, the pool can get quite busy. We have ordered more sun loungers and new furniture to add more comfort to more guests. Thank you for staying with H on Smith Hotel, we hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards, The H on Smith Team
