We stayed here for a couple of nights when we first moved to Darwin. The customer service is excellent, very helpful and friendly. The rooms were serviced every day, which was also great. Very good value for money and would stay again and also highly recommend to others.

Stayed here for a couple of weeks all up and all I can say is excellent stayed in a few places in darwin before top end to budget and this place is budget price with top quality service the price is really affordable compared to your normal top end darwin range and the rooms that clean you could eat your dinner of the floor fresh towels every day room cleaned and beds made all when your away seeing the darwin sites perfect spot to come back to after a hard day in the sun or the (pub) staff are unbelievably friendly and more than willing to help you out whatever way they can from the grounds keeper to the ladies cleaning your room and especially the irish girl sarah behind the reception desk she seems to know more about darwin than the locals themselves and is more than helpful to spent the time and tell you the best spots to visit and best tours and attractions to go on were to get the best prices and deals for food petrol mechanics etc this place has the irish charm with the outback know how recommend it to anyone heading to the top end

We came late after a late flight, the staff contacted me to give me the late check-in instructions, which was nice. The room was neat and tidy, small but not tiny. Bathroom wasn't bad, clean but obviously a bit old and in need of a re-do. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. Only down side was the noise from the highway was pretty bad, but I guess bearable if you are a sound sleeper! Good for a quick stay and cheap!

We stayed 4 nights in a unit at the back. No highway or airfield noise. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Cabin served daily and always
clean. Nice little swimming pool. Rates here by far the most economical option. Close enough to city to easily visit all the attractions we had come to see.

Our flight had a late arrival time but this was no problem. Once we had booked online, we called the resort and they emailed us the access codes.

Situated on Stuart Highway it's a fifteen minute drive from the airport and ten minutes to the cbd.
If you don't have a car, the bus to the cbd stops right outside. It only costs $3 for a three-hour bus ticket.

We opted for a small double; compact but perfect for two people on a short stay. It was immaculately clean - housekeeping every day.

Nice pool, great bbq area, good kitchen too. (hobs, microwave and fridge)
There is also a set of crockery, fridge, toaster and kettle in the room.

The resort is currently expanding to have cabins, spa and bar/restaurant which will be a great bonus to not only the resort but the area too.

Everyone was really helpful and friendly at reception. (Go raibh mile maith agat!)
Check out the baby croc in the fish tank too!

Dear Nancy K

Thank you so much for your fabulous Review!
All of the team here at The Leprechaun Resort are thrilled with your comments,

Our location is so convenient to the CBD and Airport. The Buses to the City Centre are a god send.

We are so excited about the future here. It will be wonderful when we have our Restaurant, New Cabins and Day Spa. You are completely right it will also be such a bonus to the area as well as to the Resort!
We hope you will pop back and see us in the future, we would be delighted to give you a tour of all the new developments.

Our Baby Croc is becoming very popular, I think he is enjoying all the attention:D

I am a regular traveller to Darwin and always book in to Room 2 when it is available. Continue to see familar faces every time. Scott, Alley, Sarah and Jenny have become family members as they have been there from the start. Great people to deal with. The back block is coming along. Have booked the first room to
become available.
Scott informs me they are starting a
Restaurant. What a way to go.
Currently in Cairns and have booked again 2nd week of April. Will stay no where else.

Darwin is a frontier sort of a place, no frills and Leprechaun fits in perfectly. Sparkling clean, comfortable, functional, all you need for a brilliant, self catering holiday.
Opt for a deluxe room if your finances permit, the extra space will be worth every penny. Rooms are very well equipped, house keeping is exceptional, the pool a welcome cooling off spot in the heat and the BBQ area great for a self catering change of menu.
Scott and Alison are friendly and know the area very well.
This is a great choice, you could pay much more for a lot less.

Room Tip: Choose a larger room, away from the road
