Unfortunately the room was not clean Only 2 towels were provided when I had booked for 3 people Asked for another towel at reception but they had none Ended up being given a pool towel The shower is over the bath and when you step into the bath to shower you immediately slip Very very dangerous Had to lay a towel on the floor of the bath to stand on to prevent anyone from slipping Meant 1 less towel to use! Told reception of issues but got a simple sorry

Air conditioner faulty, could not control the temperature so was either freezing cold or off. Toilet was dirty from previous occupants. Only one towel provided for 2 guests.

I am a budget-conscious traveller and for the price range and taking into account the age of the building, it is an excellent hotel for the budget. The two gentlemen manning the front desk were very accommodating and friendly. The location is within walking distance to a Coles Express shop and food joints. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I will be transitting through Darwin.
