not room 218!!
we were given lower ground room with no views but a car park. Also, every morning at 7am, there is a delivery truck which makes a lot of beeping noise to wake us up. Did not get a good rest

Best location
The only negative for us was the shower over the bath and housekeeping needed improvement. We still would stay again if in Darwin.

Minor disappointments
Booked a no service room but continuously had to go to reception to ask for refills of washing powder and dish washing products. No quilt, only 2 blankets to keep warm, had to ask for more blankets. Hot water system not a consistent temperature. Would run cold for a couple of mins when first turned on. (Waste of water) Couldn't leave my kids in the shower unattended incase the shower turned to boiling water! Carpet was amazingly soft and cooshy! I got this hotel on a deal but if I had paid full price for this apartment I could have been completely pissed off seeing as it's a (high grade hotel)

brilliant location
beautiful views of the ocean.. shame I was there on business and didn't have plenty of time to enjoy the place .. the staff were brilliant.. although my room wasn't ready when I arrived earlier than my check in time, it was made ready in no time ... my air con was leaking and with no questions asked, they moved me to another apartment with an even bigger balcony and better views... the swimming pool looked great...

Great staff
The staff were friendly and the room was well kept
The only negetative experiences was the water had been turned off with no notification. When went to have shower that night no hot water. When the water restarted it was a horrible brown colour
