About Skycity Darwin Hotel


This hotel combines the excitement of a casino with the beauty of the beach. 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.

Short stay holiday
Decided on Skycity as we were wary of staying in the CBD. Good location, next door to Mindil Markets, nice pools, good selection of restaurants and rooms were reasonably priced.

Our Comments
Most enjoyable, We stayed in the older part of the hotel and my only negative comment is that the building is a bit outdated, and could do with a bit of an upgrade. Other than that i have no complaints. The staff were friendly, the restaurants and food selection was good, and overall the stay was good value for money.

Never going back.
Skycity is not focused on customer service. The staff are nice but the overall service was very disappointing. I won't list everything that was an issue needs less to say I will never stay here again.

Skycity Darwin Review
The front desk was great with a great welcome, very pleasant. We had an Ocean View Room which had a fantastic view. The room itself was a bit tired and could do with a refurbishment, having said that it was really clean. Breakfast at The Vue was really shocking, as even though it was meant to close at 10:30am, we arrived at 10am and there was a very limited amount of food, most dishes were finished and there were no refills, the staff was extremely unpleasant and would not even provide milk for the coffee. Very disappointing after the pleasant service at reception.

Everything's great
Situated right next to markets on a Thursday and Sunday night at mindil beach and five stunning restaurants with the best sunset views in Darwin. Deluxe rooms value for money
