Accommodation near Royal Darwin Hospital

Looking for a comfortable ,clean 4 or 5 star hotel with 24 hour booking in access, which would be central to airport,city and RDH.

I am flying in for 2 nights stay and will be visiting the hospital,although would like to see the city also.

Saville Suites, but ask for direct sea views not side or back views.

They are the best in town......also ask for a one bedroom apartment not a hotel room. (not much difference in price).

I concur with Elle .. I personally think the Saville Apartments is the pick of the crop - and as she says ask for a seaview apartment .. it is on the Esplanade, there is the Darwin Airport Resort located at the airport which will be closer to RDH .. probably a $10-$15 taxi ride

unfortunately there isn't any accom that is central to the CBD airport and RDH.

I'm happy to run interference for you if you wanted to check out lastminute.com, wotif.com etc for a heads up on distances ..

check out those kind of sites for accom deals - then contact the hotel via email and see if there is better deal - sometimes just ringing you may end up with a higher price - but nail 'em down as hard as you can - the occupancy rates across Darwin would be low this time of the year and the tourist season is over .. they're (majority of the hotels) offering territorians special rates for 1 night ..

Royal Darwin Hospital is in the Northern Suburbs of Darwin or about 20km from the CBD. There is very little accommodation in the suburbs. There is also no true 5 star property in Darwin either. Darwin Airport Resort www.darwinairportresort.com.au is a nice property and probably the closest to the hospital (still about 8 km) or Feathers Sanctuary is a beautiful B&B near the airport www.featherssanctuary.com (I think). Basing yourself in the city makes the most sense. Cabs would cost at least $25 each way from CBD to RDH. You can book most Darwin accommodation via the various hotel search/booking engines or directly via their sites. Agree that Saville is nice and also a good location and probably the closest thing to 5 star in Darwin. Skycity Casino and Crowne Plaza my next picks. Am long term Darwin resident who works in tourism industry. Hope this helps
