“Great stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Would like to congratulate all the staff for the way we were made so welcome and no request was a problem. They went out of their way help even for small request. Would certainly recommend staying to my friends. The apartment was spacious and clean and well set out and you wanted for nothing. It was a family stay with 2 parents in their 90's.

Room Tip: It was a lot quieter the higher up you go

The apartment with 3 bedrooms suited our travelling group of 5 adults. The option of being able to stay just one night is hard to find in Darwin accommodation and it was good that Argus apartments offer this option at no extra cost. We stayed 2 separate single nights in between tours to Coburg peninsular and the Tiwi Island. They also let us store our extra luggage while we were travelling.

I liked everything about this place. Check in was smooth with very friendly staff. Our 2br 2 bathroom apartment was huge with a large balcony to sit on and relax. The kitchen was well equipped with egg rings the only thing missing. Beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Highly recommended.

We shared a 2bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor, beautiful layout very comfy for 2 couples
Staff very helpful at all times and helpful on all our enquiries,
our only disappointment was a very cold pool (and forgot to ask WHY) as tempertures being 32deg everyday a swim would have been enjoyable.
As in previous reviews the lounges as well as dinning chairs and bedhead are peeling but management had a letter in apartment explaining new furniture has been ordered
I guess like a lot of things in Darwin orders are very slow to be received ???

Room Tip: 2 bed apartment on 3rd floor good not really water views mostly other apartments but no noise in sid...

We booked a 1 bedroom executive apartment and have to say that we were totally amazed by the size of the apartment! I mean it was huge!! From the entrance, we had a laundry room, then a toilet, an office then a huge kitchen with a large dining table. Then there was a huge living room with a huge balcony. Then a bedroom with bathroom and toilet included, also another balcony. Then on the top of that, there was another bathroom and toilet as well!

The staff was friendly and very helpful. From the hotel we could easily reach the center where there were plenty of restaurants and bars within 5-10 minutes walk. We didn't use the swimming pool at the hotel as it was too cold when we were there. Internet connection via WIFI was included.

Overall, very nice apartment if you travel in family as there would be more than enough space. Perhaps it'd be a bit too big for a couple.

Apartment was clean, REALLY spacious & well-appointed, & staff were really friendly & helpful, & stored our luggage when we went camping for a few days & were returning to the Argus. Great location, short walk to city centre & wharf (including the wave pool which our kids loved). Had breakfast on our balcony with harbour view...lovely.

Stayed for about a week and I got wake up 2~3 times in the very early morning about 4~5am during my stay !

I was really annoyed and jumped out of my bed and try to find out what the loud beeping sound was, and found out that is their garbage truck! It was doing the reverse, so thats where the loud beeping sound came from.

I still cannot understand, why their garbage has to be collected in the early morning and wake up everyone ?

If they would not rearrange their garbage collecting time, I would never ever going back.

Dear abby m

Thank you for your feedback.

We do not have any rubbish collection at Argus Darwin during the time you suggest.

Our rubbish collection is Monday and Thursday each week and generally after lunchtime.

As you were not staying with us on rubbish collection days, I did look into your concerns and discovered the trolley collection contractors indeed roam around the city at the times you suggest.

I have made further enquiry with the Darwin City Council for future reference.

Kind regards
