Stayed 7 notes total. 1 nite before heading out on a tour. Reception staff were very helpful and we left our big bag here while we went on a 3 day tour. Great to return to our harbor view room on the 7th floor. Older hotel but been totally updated not sure what other bathrooms were like but in both our rooms they were fine, little dated but clean. Lights came on low but didn't take too long to get to full power. Great location and all staff in the hotel were great. Will definitely stay here if we come back to Darwin. Thanks for making our stay so great.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor and room at front for harbor views

Rooms updated since my last visit, now clean lines, modern. On 9th floor facing back into the city but can still see the sea, very nice view. Only little grouch is that volume of the TV is locked too low, so can hardly hear southpark over sound of aircon. Other than tha, good value hotel in convenient location.

Dear Guest
Thank you for returning to Holiday Inn Darwin for your recent stay. We have renovated our guest rooms including all new cabinetry, bedding, linen, LCD televisions and more. We will however review the volume of the TV, since we would still like for you to enjoy your favourite shows when away from home. We look forward to welcoming you back to Darwin when you visit next.

We stayed for two nights in July - perfect time to visit Darwin. We had just finished a 10 day caming tour and it was so luxurious to havea soak in the bath, with plenty of gorgeous, fluffy towels. Service was fantastic, from having a room made up (with a choice of pillow) to the buffet breakfast, we loved every minute. The sheets on teh bed were so crisp, and the rooms were a decent size so you could spread and and enjoy the view. We had a "City view" suite, but we still had plenty of water views too. Nice and close to eveything, even Mindle Beach markets were only a 20 min walk away.

Room Tip: Not quite sure how, as we were on a discounted rate...but we ended up with a room on the top flooor...

Dear Guest
Thank you for your review. July is a very nice time to visit Darwin. Currently the temperatures are still pleasant as we head into our wet season when we’ll soon get to experience spectacular storms. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the room, especially the new linen and choice of pillows. All Holiday Inn hotels have been ‘refreshed’ and you will find the choice of soft and firm pillows in all our hotels.
All the best for the remainder of the year.
Kind regards

Great view from the 6th floor, water view room. Sunset in Darwin is amazing!
The hotel is very close to town and all amenities. We didn’t have a car in Darwin, opting to walk everywhere, so this was a great location
Hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. Room was reasonably clean and neat, but the bathroom was unimpressive! They still have the old bath, higher than bathroom floor, with shower on top and shower curtain. Very dated, showing signs of mould. Also, there is no way for the steam to escape, so the bathroom stays damp way after you’ve showered, even with air conditioning running.
The highlight is the restaurant/bar/pool area, which is very pleasant.
We had one continental breakfast there which was very good and reasonably priced. Coffee machine needs updating!

Room Tip: choose a room with water view on higher floors

Big hotel across road from seafront. Stayed for two nights having flown in late at night. Clean, reasonably sized room. Big hotel. Nice pool which was a God-send in the Darwin heat. Breakfast was superb -loads of fresh fruit, freshly-squeezed juice (you use the squeezing machine yourself so you know it's fresh), cerals, and cooked breakfast.

Not the cheapest hotel in the area, but safe and clean, giving a good night's sleep after long haul flight.

Overall....adequate hotel, would stay here again for short stay.

This hotel is located right across from Bicentennial Park and a short walk from downtown. It is right next door to the Holiday Inn Esplanade.The room was a nice a size, clean and confortable. The paint on the walls and doors in the corridors of our floor might need a bit of refreshing. The staff was quite nice and helpful. The pool is not that big but does the job since you can't swim in the ocean (sharks, crocs or Box jellyfish). No complaints.
