Reception person was amazing, friendly and welcoming. She was very helpful and considerate. Rooms clean and great beds. The swimming pool was great. Level of service didn't extend to the restaurant. The service was not great at the restaurant. The hotel was really helpful with a booking on short notice.

The rates here are very reasonable, and include a basic continental breakfast of cereal, toast and spreads. The staff are friendly and helpful, and we managed to get some light bulbs replaced - but if you need maintenance done ask early in the morning or the night before! The pool is great and a place to meet other travellers and swap advice on where to go. There is also an excellent laundry for guests with several washing machines and dryers available, all for free. Good views too, especially from the breakfast/dining room We didn't order any other food there, so can't comment on the dinner menu. This hotel is on the fringe of the inner city and is very walkable to town, supermarket and two excellent Greek restaurants which we didn't expect to find in Darwin! We walked everywhere and it was easy walking. The hotel is also in a quiet setting,and not far from the Botanical gardens. This is a nice hotel for a reasonable rate and if you are not planning to live the whole day in your room it's a good place to stay.
