we stayed at this hotel on the Australian day long weekend. We arrived after midnight and the receptionist Hamza was there to welcome us. since the hotel restaurant was already closed and we were quite hungry, he offered us some homemade cookies and apples. he was quick and soon were in our room. we had a restful sleep as the beds were very comfortable. the hotel is not far from Mitchell street and we were able to walk around there. when we needed a taxi, the hotel staff was very helpful and the taxi was available to us is minutes. we used the pool too and had something to eat at the restaurant. Amy the waitress was very attentive to our needs. when we checked out, Kevin enlightened us with the idea of being a Hilton member, which we joined. over all, my husband and I were satisfied and will be using Hilton as our first preference to stay. thanks

Great location with awesome views across the water! Love the little balconies as allows a better uninterrupted view & a feel for the weather! I suffer a little from claustrophobia and the balcony opens up the room! Our favourite Darwin hotel by far!
