The Cavenagh Hotel
Very central ”
1st night was on the 2nd floor in a quiet room which I requested. Requested for a better room because it was so dated., carpet in dire need of replacement. I got room # 3 which was on the grd floor. It was a great room, renovated and very clean.
My son and I stayed here, Jojo at reception was amazing, we loved everything about the hotel except the cleaning staff never emptied our bin, or supplied fresh towels. I feel bad complaining but that was the only bad thing, otherwise it's great food and drink and music, we loved it.
Pretty food value for money in the overpriced seasonal Darwin market ”
Fantastic front office staff- i had some requeats due to a recent surgery and the staff couldn't so enough for me. Great food and atmosphere. If you park out tje back like i did take a picture of the car numberplates around your car so it wont be so costly when some drunken arsewipe reverses into your car when leaving- even if you do leave them a load of room to get out.
Great location, huge pool, fun pub where the locals hang”
For the value of money, this hotel is great for an easy going stay in Darwin, with a nice locals atmosphere at the pub near reception. The room is adequately sized, includes plenty of storage space and large fridge. Unfortunately I couldn't get the WIFI to work after approximately 5pm every day as the demand on the network appeared evident. I complained to reception and they seemed to be aware of the issue and gave me another voucher to use. I hope they improve the WIFI soon. The grounds are well maintained and relatively clean. However my room had an uncleaned coffee plate and eating a piece of fruit in the room seemed to attract rodents of the cockroach variety. So if the potential of this bothers you, do not stay here. I ensured I did not leave any food around the room and I did not see any other rodent. However I would hope that this property does have routine inspections by pest checking agencies.
Good location and value”
Hotel is central to all you need in Darwin, walking distance to Waterfront complex, Smith street and Mitchell road shops and bars. Staff were friendly and great pub attached with good food and entertainment. Room was basic and no windows.
Good value with bonus ammenities”
Everything was good about this Hotel, amenities, staff, restaurant and price. As with many other reviews for this hotel you do need to allow for the fact that it is a popular hotel in Darwin and as is not uncommon in Darwin, it has open air drinking/eating facilities with music. When crowded the chatter and laughter gets louder, all usual stuff. Just be warned and do as I did, take good earplugs for when you do need to sleep.Oh one more thing, the servicing of the rooms is a bit adhoc and inconsistent, you may have to request fresh towels or tea/coffee etc.
Short Stay Here”
Only stayed at the place for 6 hours since we had an early flight the next morning. Bed seemed comfortable and the room was quiet. The bar and restaurant at the hotel looked to be popular with the locals. The staff was helpful in scheduling a taxi to pick us up early the next morning. Woolworths is only a 7 minute walk away.
A really good location”
Really like this place, the room has a good practical layout and was really neat and clean. The swimming pools give good impression of the location where guest and soak in the pool after a hot weather outside. After dark, the cosy pub comes alive where you can enjoy nice food and good music.
Overall the hotel is convenient to the shopping and eating area.”
Should have lift or something easier to bring luggages up and down the room. The room i stayed abit noisy as there is a shop selling liquor.

One of the best and most entertaining nights I've had in years. Thanks a million
Friendly, relaxed and unpretentious establishment ”
Relaxed and friendly atmosphere, great food, wine and drinks. Accommodation needs a little update but reflected in current cost...
Tired and dated”
Basic rooms looking tired.
The staff were awesome1
Location, location, location”
Good accommodation & facilities near the centre of Darwin. Pleasant staff & clean facility. Happy to visit again.
Great if you want to party...”
The rooms are decent but it's noisy and there is not much privacy as people pass in front of your window + door. Open bar area is noisy at night until about 11p. The rooms are non-smoking but the hotel allows people to smoke on the walkway right in front of the rooms so the smell of smoke is in the room anyway- poor policy which I hope they change. Staff is super friendly and helpful!
(+) Location is great: in city center and next to waterfront. Nice big swimming pool. Staff is nice and helpful. Good value for money. Room and bathroom is nice. Soap & shampoo provided. Fridge & wardrobe in room. Liquor shop, restaurant & bar just beside the hotel. Airport shared minibus arrangement available for 15~20$ but must tell a few days in advance. (-) They give only 1GB free wifi, then need to pay. Limited number of parking lots. Double bed was actually 2 single beds put together. No window in my room but not a big deal, other rooms have window but are probably more noisy.
Great staff and very good accommodation for a pub. Very good atmosphere inside and especially outside bar near pool area. However, although food is fresh and well presented it was nothing special for flavour.
Bit of a pong”
We flew in very late in the evening, and although reception was closed, the staff checked us in very quickly. An early start also meant we werent able to use the facilities. The room was clean and tidy however did not have a window, only a high skylight. The hotel is also currently experiencing a terrible smell around the pool and reception, it was blamed on drains that would be cleared thenext day, however it still remained 3 days later when we returned to pick up our stored luggage which was a great free service. A great hotel with good location and listed services.
Great location good bar food and pool ”
We enjoyed our stay lots to do at the hotel. You can do your own cooking, the bar is very interesting as their are many locals who come for food and drinks. They have a big pool. The price for a room in Darwin is reasonable considering how over priced Australia is in general. Would stay again.
Value for money! Good restaurant!”
We went during the low(wet) season. 2 nights before and 1 night after we went to the national parks. Price was really good. Value for money. Our flight landed 1am in the morning and we checked-in at 2am without problem. Location is good and we drove and also found parking spaces easily. Even the parking of the hotel is full, the on street parking is free in the night time. A good swimming pool opens til 10pm. The restaurant had the Thursday 2 for 1 dinner promotion and we have our dinner (reasonable size) steak for only $30 total and it tasted very good! Staff are nice and helpful. We will book it again.
