I stayed here for a week around the beginning of October. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful and well tended the gardens are. It creates the feeling of an oasis in the city. The new owner was really helpful, approachable and great to talk to about local sites and attractions. A great spokesperson for the delights of Darwin... More

An awesome spot for 3 mates on Darwin fishing adventure, all the facilities to cook your catch, a pool to cool down in , every man to his own bed in a clean well presented apartment. Close walk to the pubs after a day on the water. I will be back , for certain.

The apartment is good, very spacious, comfortable beds but cleanliness needs a little bit of attention esp. molds around shower and more sanitary papers (toilet rolls for long stay and tissue box even the kmart's 89 cents). Other than that, I will still recommend to others,

We stayed 4 nights and would happily use the apartment again. Ideally located, close to the CBD & shopping area, clean, well appointed & friendly, helpful staff at reception. The available Austar entertainment channels were a bonus, so too the large rooms and very efficient aircon.

My wife and I stayed in a 2 b/r apartment for 10 nights and we're glad we chose this property. The managers are nice pleasant people and most willing to help out where they can. The apartment was spacious, clean and had everything one would require for comfortable, self-catering style living and the ease of use. Free WIFI and parking... More

Great host who just rook over the ownership of the place. Very helpful in terms of organisation. Place is clean and some apartments were refurbished and some will soon. Walking distance to city close to supermarket too. A good place to visit Darwin or to make a stop before (and after) a tour of Kakadu like we did.

Returned to City Gardens after a break and very happy to see things returning to normal. Everything is very clean and the gardens are looking great - not the overgrown jungle they were. Guy and Katrina will make great hosts and their enthusiasm is a positive for the future We will be back next year

We spent 4 nights in a 2 bedroom spacious apartment on the first floor. Such a great location, close to the airport, supermarket and restaurants. Very comfortable and relaxing with all the comforts of home, including washing machine and dryer. Owners were very helpful and obliging which always makes a difference. Plus would these apartments have the quietest toilet flushing... More
