Janette from Australia
1 Bedroom Harbour View Apartment
Stayed 2 nights in August 2016
Excellent amenities
We had a one bedroom apartment with views of the bay. It was very spacious, separate bedroom, big bathroom, a proper kitchen with a big fridge, a balcony and even a laundry washer and drier. We were on the second floor, so the views were partially obscured by the huge palm trees. If you have a choice, ask for a higher floor. From the back door of the hotel, you were right in the restaurant and pub environs, and in front of the hotel was the Esplanade with walking paths.

Good but not great
The resteraunt was the telling feature for me. There was a limited menu which was fine but twice(the only two ties I ate at the resteraunt for dinner) what I wanted was unavailabe. The breakfast buffet is overpriced and very poor quality. In saying that the facilities are very good and the staff are friendly but they can be understaffed at times which can make getting service difficult.

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.

1 Bedroom City View Apartment
Stayed 4 nights in April 2016
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)

One-Bedroom Apartment with Harbour View
Stayed one night in March 2016
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...
