Had one of the best rooms in the hotel supposedly which was filled with filthy carpet, drawn all over furniture, no service to the room over the 3 nights we stayed, not to mention my partner slicing his foot open on a rusted and broken, pool area chair. Staff were friendly though and the view from the room was nice. Overpriced for what you get IMO.

The Frontier is well located and the staff are friendly, although despite the declaration of the Darwin lockdown, were not wearing masks: they were by the next day, indicating poor preparation. The room was clean and in reasonable condition, except for the aircon, the Achilles heel of 'budget'($200?) Darwin hotels. At the lowest setting it barely cooled the room.

They advertise a restaurant and don't have one - false advertising???? They could put some sheer curtains to provide more privacy on the ground floor rooms. Would not stay here again
