This was a terrible experience. Arrived 7am and paid for previous night Friday and sign on door no room service till Monday. Fridge 4 small milk thrown at the back nothing else, view of a stairwell only, asked for queen got 2 singles, very rude night staff first few days, this felt very unsafe at night outside so much so after 9pm never tried to venture outside. Arrived 6 am and couldn't get inside doors locked and 3 groups of very seemingly aggressive people just on the grass outside then finally entered as a chap was leaving so I barged past him then had to wait for someone to come and serve me seemed only one person on duty. Couldn't get into the safe locked, toilet very dirty at the back of it and fridge dirty. Then a few nights later a fire alarm went and evacuation and the corridor was full fumes in May 2022. I travel extensively overseas and Australia for business constantly so I know hotels. Hotel ignoring my emails after leaving and never apologized for evacuation. I moved to Darwin Mecure Airport hotel after this and it was perfect place to stay.

Easy booking via mobile from Darwin airport, after a long 17h fought from the UK. Confirmation sent immediately. 20 mins later arrived by taxi and took no longer than 5 mins to check in. Room was very clean, great bathroom & shower, comfy bed, range of basic TV channels. Very close to shops. In the central business district. Convenient for my one night stay.

The person who checked me in was so unfriendly, seemed annoyed that I was checking in! No parking available so had to park my car on the street and lug my stuff up. The room was really unclean particularly the walls which were filthy. The soap bottle was clearly the same one from the previous person who had stayed in the room and they had just refilled it but not wiped the excess soap off the bottle or put the lid back on properly. The room was really hot but the aircon remote is set so it cannot be turned down lower then 23.
