Hotel Description

This property serves best the thrill seekers and the sun seekers. With its location on the Mindil Beach, Skycity Darwin Hotel is a short drive from the central business district and only a few steps away from the shoreline. All the rooms are fresh and bright with balconies overlooking the water. A well-equipped business center is designed for those with jobs to think about. The hotel also offers free shuttles that take guests to the central business district twice a day. But with the beach and Mindil Markets right by the hotel, and Cullen Bay’s restaurants a short stroll up the road, there is just no need to venture far. Keeping all guests in mind, the casino is kept separate from the hotel with minimal overlapping territory. Skycity Darwin Hotel, being an award winning hotel, is definitely worth the visit.

Outdated in parts

New pool is nice, good location and adequate facilities
The room was very dated and not particularly great value for money. The pool in the newer part of the hotel is really nice with a pool bar.

Good grounds, average rooms

Swimming pools, location, restraunts
The grounds and location were amazing. The buildings were a little short on maintenance. The rooms were a little tired, could have done with a fresh coat of paint for a 5 star hotel and the cost, however all hotels are very expensive in Darwin.

Great location

Pool,nightlife and people.
Deluxe rooms for $315 sounds reasonable for peak season. Bit disappointed ,closer to expensive standard room,wooden shutters let Sun stream in from 7am.Had to hang rug over windows for a sleep in.

Superior King Deluxe Lagoon

Pool access from your own balcony. Sundeck chairs on balcony. Absolutely stunning luxurious room with silent aircon, massive amazing bathroom
Absolutely loved this room. We stayed in a cheaper one the first night and this room made up for it. We paid top $ but it was worth it. We sunbathed on our own private deck that led to the pool and drank delicious cocktails from the pool bar. I want to go back NOW!

Skycity Hotel Darwin - Delux Room

Facilities, Peaceful, Beachfront
I read a number of negative reviews and saw pics on the Deluxe rooms and felt I knew what I was up for. I hated having to pay sooo much money for what was more like a 3.5 star hotel room. Saving grace was that we knew we were booked into the Superior King (see my other review for this one).
