Very good. Couldn't find the TV remote though but i think you get given it during check in at reception but we checked in after hours (which was easy). But no worries though.

Pool was disappointing. Everything else ok. You have to open the curtain for day light so there is no privacy.

We stayed here for one night while on our way to Darwin. The room had all we needed and was clean and comfortable. The Casino was close for an evening meal and the kitchenette was especially useful. I can recommend it for one night.
