HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We stayed at this hotel twice for one night each time during our tour of Australia, and it was wonderful both times. The welcome was lovely (including a cookie!), and staff were friendly, helpful and informative. The room during the first stay was wonderful, the beds extremely comfortable and view fantastic. There was a slight mix up with our room...

Overall this is a good hotel to stay in. It's close to the CBD, in a very picturesque part of Darwin. My brother and I stayed in two rooms (1001 & 1007) and I had to be moved to 920 due to a leaky roof in 1001. Generally, the rooms were tidy and well presented, but in need of some...

When we visited the hotel was undergoing some work - especially in the lobby area. Unfortunately it rained and the small pool was out of service. So our mood was not great. However the rooms were well appointed and had adequate space. The bar and dining room were of an acceptable standard. The food was good - especially the Barramundi...

A very pleasant hotel with good management in marked contrast to its sister hotel in Alice Springs. The staff were friendly and efficient and always willing to help. We did not eat our evening meals in as we wanted to explore Darwin but snacks were good as was the breakfast. Bar pricing was reasonable. However the pool was rather small...

Very dated, light fixtures in the foyer very dusty, no mini bat or water in room, limited seats at b/fast inside which could have easily been fixed. Try the other Hilton next time Came on business but suppose only 130 per night was ok. Balcony not really useable

We stoped in Darwin for two nights at this hotel and found it to be very good the service and friendly staff made it most enjoyable. The free buffet breakfast was a highlight. Parking is free and easy to access and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Will definitely stay here again.

This hotel is experiencing renovations at the moment so initially it does not really look inviting.
