This hotel has no services. The pool image is very creative. It is basically an s as bone ground container with water. When you come back from hot muggy outside activities there is no restaurant - best is a malfunctioning vending machine. It was clean but this area is not great and quite a walk to area with restaurants. I would not recommend.

Dear Norma, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your stay wasn't to your expectations. The photo of our pool is less than a year old. It is an above ground plunge pool, as pictured.We do have a resturant on site run by Green Chillies Darwin, which operates 7 days a week from 5pm, which was noted on your welcome letter.Also, our 24 hour reception team, would have been more than happy to provide you with further assistance/directions to other cafes/bars nearby.We are sorry your 2 was lost in the vending machine. Should you need to follow up on your refund from NT snacks, please feel to let us know so we can put them in contact.Best wishes,

This place served most of our needs, the only thing I wish they had was another sink/water source outside the bathroom but other than that, can't fault them. Was a great place, affordable and great location. Staff were lovely too and helped us a lot.
