Somewhat dated, but OK for a stop off before flying out. Meals OK and something between BNB and motel.

Disappointing motel not worth the money paid for one night. The picture of this motel on the Wotif website looks better than what this motel really looks like...

Very basic hotel

Pros: The meal in the diding room
Cons: All of it
Location: Too far out of town, in industrial area. Nothing nearby, definitely need transport
Very old and run down hotel. Very out of town also, which I sort of knew so it ok. But the hotel itself a let down, I expected basic but that was terrible. It needs a refurb or to be pulled down. The rooms whilst clean were very basic and had paint peeling, stains, damp spots and just overall bad wear and tear. The only good thing was the cleanliness and the nice meal I had in the dining room. I was very disappointed. I would not recommend it as a choice to stay, pay a little extra and go closer in or somewhere a little newer or refurbed. And every night I had people (men) drinking and being quite loud on the balcony outside my room. I as a single female traveller did not feel safe. Management did not come and ask them to move it somewhere else. Overall not happy.

Lower priced and convenient

Pros: Clean and friendly staff. Good value breakfast
Cons: Could use a facelift
Location: On the Stuart highway and not too far from Darwin city
High noise level from airport and highway but because it was convenient did end up staying 3 nights

Part of package deal.

Pros: Staff
Cons: Maybe a microwave in the room
Location: We stayed there because we were visiting our son.
Xaio was excellent. We didn't arrive until midnight,but, she welcomed us with water and offered to help with luggage. We complained about party noise one night and the problem guests were dealt with promptly. Thanks

Nice stay

Quiet place even though it is on Stuart Highway. Spacious car park. Call me in advance to confirm arrival time as a courtesy call. The receptionists are very friendly.
