There were no lights to see where to go when I arrived late. There was an old sign with a different resort name in it confusing me. The girl at reception was not helpful. Richard the manager and Frank were helpful. The switch was broken so light in bathroom didn’t work so couldn’t have a shower after a long trip. Milk in fridge was off. Instructions to give the taxi driver could have saved me carting 30kg of luggage 500m.

It was just so relaxing. The stafff were so accommodating when i had to extend my stay due to covid isolation protocols. The only prob was that doordash wasn't good at finding the entrance to the building - they kept going around the back of my wing.

Next time we may or may not stay in a cabin. We are both light sleepers so heard guests coming and leaving with heavy luggage almost nightly.

Hi Beryl thank you for your recent review, as with a lot of hotels in Darwin guests arrive trough out the evening with the late/early flight arrivals. Our cabins do provide a more private location. We do hope you enjoyed your visit to Darwin.
