Fantastic location for young families with an amazing shaded playground and outdoor fitness stations directly across the road. Even for us with older teenagers the location and whole hotel was perfect. Our bathroom was large with more than 4 towels readily available. The swimming pool was huge with lots of chairs around, plus outdoor alfresco dining poolside which we enjoyed for the buffet breakfast. The buffet was amazing, with so many choices for breakfast. We had the pool to ourselves at 9pm (closed at 10pm). There were no clean swimming towels available by then but the reception man happily found us some clean bathroom towels. There's free parking underneath. Just drive in and park, then register your number plate when you check in. They happily cared for our bags in a locked room since we arrived too early to check in. We explored Darwin but didnt want to advertise all our luggage in the back of the SUV.

The room was very basic for a so called Hilton, no cups for tea, no water in fridge, no wine glasses and most of all Air-con was not working properly. I waited 15 minutes at the boom gate to get out as the desk staff had not done there job and had to return twice back into foyer to try and get access out.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Was able to request late check out of midday which they accommodated. The pool area is excellent although not enough towels readily available for the number of guests at the pool. Buffet (full) breakfast had plenty of good food choices. No mini bar in room so all drinks and snacks need to be ordered from room service. Decor of rooms was dated especially for bathroom but bed was comfy. Building is old so not very sound proof when people are in the corridor. Also there is No free wifi or movie channels which seems ridiculous given room prices. good central location with a park across the road overlooking the harbour and close to the CBD (15mins walk).
