Our first trip to Darwin. Great staff, awesome views, a stones throw away from the beautiful Marina (and eateries) and really convenient to cbd via those amazing Neuron e-scooters. We’ll be back!

Apartment was very old and has not been renovated. Desperately needs to be updated. We had friends on other rooms who laid the same price and their apartment was fully renovated. Was not value for money in my opinion.

Dear Selina,Thank you for your review regarding your stay with us. I was disappointed to read your comments as we did our very best to place you on the same floor as your friends. All the apartments are individually owned and furnishings do vary. In saying that we are trying to get our owners to do up their apartments and hopefully we can achieve this over our quiet season.Regards Rose

The staff were friendly. The place is getting old and the fly screen door was difficult to open and we had to ask for a clothes airer as we didn't want to use the dryer. The dryer was full of lint so I cleaned it out so as not to cause a fire. The washing machine was old and noisey. The view was lovely. The whole building could do with a new paint.

Dear Tess,Thank you for your review regarding your stay with us.My apologies about the lint filter on the dryer, this is part of the departure clean requirement and unfortunately on this occasion was missed by the housekeeping team. I will look at the washing machine and advise the owner of the apartment if it needs to be replaced. I will also pass on your comments to the Body Corporate in regards to the building needing painting.Regards Rose
