For the price you pay Vs. What you get is brilliant. I only stayed for two night so didn’t require house keeping. But the pool is really nice and shaded, the gym for a hotel is pretty good/ slightly basic. Rooms were large and staff very pleasant and friendly

The hotel is a good place to stay,but be weary just like the culture of hotels if you stayed there many times before it does not mean they will give you good treatment hence I moved from a room that was not fit for any occupier,so I moved next day,also like many hotels in Darwin they are very over priced,some more than 3x the normal price,but that is the culture here,you are nothing,your money has more face value.
