Thank you George!

The staff were really helpful and always happy to assist with any questions. The dining staff were equally lovely but very busy - the food was superb!! The entrance to the hotel looks tired so with a little money could be very welcoming as it is the first impression and not up to Mercure standard.

Immaculately clean, great location, good food options at you door step, great facilities, fantastic service, plenty of free carpark and bang for your buck pricing. Don’t normally give high recommendations but Rydges Palmerston in my view is top notch value for money accomodation if your travelling to Darwin.
