We booked a lagoon room and after a long flight from Bali we were excited to see our room however this excitement quickly passed when the rude late night check in guy told us we only had the lagoon view on the 2 nd floor not the lagoon access room. The website is misleading and for $360 a night in Darwin you would expect a top room. For every positive feature there were 2 negatives about this hotel. The room was big with basic but new interior and the bed was good however the pillows were lumpy and old. The bathroom was large and had a great size bath however the bathroom door was heavy and had a auto shutter on it and slammed every time. (not great with a sleeping baby) They had fantastic block out curtains however the bathroom window didn't have curtains and the morning light streamed through into the bedroom so the blackout curtains were a waist of space. We had no hot water the whole 2 days it was only luke warm and we could hear through the walls of our room and all the other bathroom doors slamming too. Room service breakfast was good and the service was great. The big positive was the lagoon pool and this would be the only reason to stay here. Its about a 45 min walk into Darwin city or a $20 cab ride, we asked at reception if there was a shuttle bus they said only a public bus (we have since learnt there is a shuttle bus 4 times a day) We have stayed in some of the best hotels all over the world and they have been the same price. This is a over priced hotel that is not 5 stars or worth the expensive rates.
