The manager changed my room on arrival because I booked through wotif and did not pay their full price. The room he put me in had stains on the beds, it stank and the aircon did not work. I refuse to stay and booked into another motel, with no refund. Terrible it is a sespit. Do not stay here.

I'd like to respond to this laughable review. Everything you said about the room is a blatant lie. You booked our budget room at $72 per night on Wotif and this WAS the full price. I did not "downgrade" you to a less expensive room. My staff clean the rooms and replace the bedding every single time before we check in a new guest. I went up and had a look at the room and the beds were perfectly made up in clean, fresh sheets with new soap and towels laid on them. The room does not smell and the aircon works just fine. I've had guests in that room after you and have had no complaints. At all. Instead of coming down down to the reception and having a civilized chat to voice your concerns you decide to storm out and then write this rubbish review.

Unbelievably great value for money! The quirky manger couldn’t do enough to help me! She went far and beyond the expected even as to find a gentleman to clean the battery terminals in my car as it wouldn’t start! Free parking, close to everything. Really secure. I will certainly be staying at Poinciana every time I go to Darwin! I couldn’t fault it at all! Great stay, lovely staff, perfect position, Walking distance to everything....but the price....cheap as chips! Couldn’t believe my luck finding this little gem!

The old lady tried to be humorous and told a racist joke to me and my friends, unknowingly to her I was and my Friends were aboriginal. Was questioned if I had payed full price even tho I had, which means they didn’t document it properly. And the room was riddled with cockroaches.

We are sorry to hearing about that from you. We just took over the hotel 2 month ago, we have a place clean, and no cockroaches are here. We have nothing against aboriginal and we treat every guest nice and fair. Cheers, Manager

Location: As mentioned location is one of the things with this hotel, Mitchell St CBD within easy walks of many of the attractions of Darwin.
Location is great for Darwin with the hotel in Mitchell st CBD. Rooms are large for a motel room, but the lift is a little slow although there is only 4 floors. So enjoyed the stay, staff are friendly and helpful.

Woah

Your better off pitching a tent somewhere. It’s in the middle of drug vile and also I had requested a 3 bed and the room was a 3 bed but they ended up putting a table in there instead of an extra bed. There was no shower Curtin door didn’t lock properly it was an absolutely dump!! Don’t stay there.
