This Motel is a bit remote if you don't have your own transport. Bathroom needs somewhere to put toiletries other than on the window ledge. Definitely needs a full time receptionist to inform guests of the sights, tours etc.

We are a couple running motel on our own.We do try to be at reception as much as possible but rooms have to be cleaned and laundry done.There is a mobile phone no at reception which we carry with us at all times.Also we have lots of brochures in reception showing tours and sights available

great budget hotel, very clean

Pros: we liked how thoughly the rooms were cleaned each day and how the staff were always kind and accomadating the guest kitchen and pool were a great help
Cons: the rooms are a little bit dated as well as the guest kitchen an outdoor dining area would be great as well and more useable for everyone.
Location: it is in walking distance o the bus stop (in and out of Darwin), walking distance to Parap (about 5-10 mins). The cafe 'Laneway' has exceptional food.
The paravista motel is very close to bus stop into Darwin centre and in walking distance to the Parap city. The hotel rooms were exceptionally clean and the staff were always kind and welcoming. The pool was very convenient and refreshing. We had a great stay, for budget accomadation it was great but a bit dated. it was great how they cleaned your room so thoughrouly everyday and we really enjoyed our stay here.

Nice hotel with lovely staff.

Pros: The verandah
Cons: Read above, fumigation for ants for a start,carpets cleaned,bathroom to be updated an carpets cleaned
The motel had ant is the bathroom an the sheets an pillow cases were clean an washed but were a brown colour as if they needed to be soaked or washed in Nappy San. Woke up one morning itchy an scratching an had some small ants on the bed,told the receptionist nothing happened,,so under no circumstances will i be staying there again an will be telling people,,Also the bath was old an stains in the carpet an yet the prices they charge is terrible.I was there for my daughters wedding. This experience spoilt the whole occasion.

Thanks for your review Rick. I do believe you came down to tell me on the first morning that you were not happy with your sheets and I changed them all for you that very day. Unfortunately due to guests spilling all over the carpet we cannot avoid stains but they are spot cleaned daily and steam cleaned every couple of months. We also have a pest control plan in place but will pass this information onto our pest control company. The price of accommodation in Darwin is expensive at this time of year but we are one of the cheapest and we check daily to make sure that we stay that way. You seemed to have a lovely time at your daughters wedding so to say that it spoilt the whole occasion is a bit unfair. We appreciate your opinion and thank you for the feedback.

No cushions on outside chairs on verandah, LOLS we did just have a cyclone, big sliding exterior door to let the night air in, whilst its old worldish it theirs nothing missing or broken, 2 minute walk to shops, pub etc if u dont want the hustle and bustle of the city cant go past this place

Quiet Street

Pros: Not too far from the city, but in a quiet location
Cons: The air conditioning in the room (essential in Darwin in the wet season)
Husband and wife team were very helpful, the room was very clean, but the old-style "hole in the wall" air conditioner couldn't do the job properly!
