OK for a the price. Apartments definitely in need of renovation, especially bathrooms but ok for a short stay if needing accommodation close to airport. Staff all very friendly. Nice little swimming pool. Plenty of parking. Close to shopping centre.

Our group of 6 booked a three bedroomed appartment for just over a week, photos on line showed washing machine and dryer in the room but wree in fact gone and in the laundry downstairs that need money, and one was broken and did not wash the clothes. But booking in was good, but we had to pay for the accommodation up friont, our group has satyed at apartments around Aussie first time ever for us. Rooms are very basic but OK at best, bed were good kitchen was fine, you left your towels outside in the morning they were chnaged by the staff sometime during the day, normally this did not happen so you had to go to office and they gave you freash ones, OK I guess. The pool area and BBQ area was the best feature of the place that and the staff, especially the very nice helpfull Irish lass, the own seemed unhappy and even turned off the outside lights while we were in the BBQ area while we were there, very strange. Overall avoid if possible but I understand this it typical of Darwin

Room Tip: all the same, but lots of guest sit outside their rooms smoking and this drifts into your room, so d...

For what we paid, I would have expected a daily service to at least remove rubbish and replace tea, coffee etc used. As well we did not get any teaspoons in the unit and not even salt and pepper. Bus timetable dated 2009 and little material in the unit on local places such as eating houses, shopping centres etc.
A recently refurbished unit, the standard of work was not great, bathroom was tiny but the place was clean and tidy. Air conditioning units seemed efficient.
Biggest complaint was that there is no internet on site. The solution to go to McDonalds is a third world solution to a first world problem. I did not think we would find an establishment in a modern city where the internet was not provided. The excuse that it is expensive is a cop out - I would be quite happy to pay for any internet used.
I contacted the office by email on our return and did not receive the courtesy of a reply.

Our over riding impression was that the motel was out to make money and to hell with any form of service.

Room Tip: Do not get a studio unit - not even room to put a suitcase except on the floor.

Relatives visited Darwin recent booked them into a three bedroom unit. Kids loved it each had a room to themselves and were able to spread out. Facilities met their requirements, and with the shopping centre just down the way they were pretty self contained. Staff were friendly, the rooms clean. Have no problems on recommending it to other visitors as a great alternative to hotels in the city.

Room Tip: don;t expect a five star property but good for the money.

Very convenient and cheap. If you have a choice try and select an apartment at the very top and in a far corner! This is a popular place for fly-in-fly-out people - mostly heavy drinking blokes. While harmless they are largely nocturnal and noisy. The management however are pretty strict so the parties do tend get wound up after 10pm. I stayed here for 3 months in 1995 and being tucked away in a quiet corner I don't recall it being noisy. The rooms have recently been refurbished so they are clean and comfortable. The good thing too is that one can cook and prepare food here. There is also a good BBQ at the pool. Our visit this time had us in an apartment close to the centre of activity. It was noisy and there were people coming and going - talking loudly into the wee hours. We always carry ear plugs! Having said all that this place is good for those on a low budget - especially give the hideous over-priced accommodation in Darwin

Hi,
We booked this place as we had to do a hurried trip to nDdarwin at short notice and this was the only option in the area we needed to be be.
This place was clean but small and badly in need of some refurbishment - we found this to be very over priced for the size and condition it was more expensive than the 4 star large extremely spacious accomodation that we booked into for the next few nights (which also had a huge balcony) in Darwin central after getting out of there as fast as we could. Whew.
