Excellent value for money with continental breakfast included. A very clean and fresh look overall. Service from staff was super, always happy to help. The only downside was that the noise insulation was not the best, corridor noises could be disturbing at night. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again

24hr reception so those late night flights are no dramas checking in and the staff always happy to see you even when you’re looking like something the cat dragged in after five hours on a plane

Nice clean rooms with good views from our twin room, a small balcony to stand on and super friendly reception. Beds were very comfortable and the hotel was quiet and had good aircon!

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Argus Hotel Darwin for 8 nights and 9 days. I was staying in the King Studio and this was perfect, i.e. air-con, clean, equipped with essentials, i.e. kettle and fridge, internet (fast and free, and only one log on requried for entire duration), bathroom with toilet - I was set! The staff were extremely helpful and quick to respond to concerns. The location is convenient and a few minutes walk away from the city centre and the great restaurants available in Darwin. On site parking at cost (small fee) great - while subject to availability I did not experience ANY issues and ALWAYS had a carspot throughout my stay (one week ). In short, I highly recommend Argus Hotel Darwin - I will happily stay with the team at Argus Hotel Darwin and I will spread the word to anyone who seeks to stay in Darwin.
