We stayed here for two nights last week, Thursday and Friday. After reading the bad reviews on here we were braced for a poor experience. We checked in early which thankfully wasn't a problem but were given the room closest to reception. We were worried but thought we'd take our chances. The room itself was much better than others have described; clean, spacious, air-conditioned and no issues found. The first night was okay, and had this review been based on just this night it would be much better.
When heading out on our second day we asked the front desk staff (a young woman) some simple questions about how to get around the city and to the WWII military museum in East Point. She couldn't even locate the hotel we were staying in on the map and had no idea how to get to East Point. We decided to just get a cab. After a long day out in Darwin, we were kept up from 3 am onward from door slamming from other guests and vacuuming from housekeeping (around 6:30/7 am on Saturday). This really took down our experience. The hotel is attached to a pub/bottle shop which is convenient but has its drawbacks at night. The pool was nice and clean, open until 10 pm. Convenient location, 10 minute walk to city center.
