                          very clean/great food/drinks/very relaxing place. love it.

                          it would have been nice if the resort had a tour info desk for all bookings ,that way i could have spent more time relaxing instead of trying to organise my day trips. transport to city was not that well organised we got left behind one day and had to catch a taxi.advised desk sorry was the best we got.

                          Our room was tastefully furnished, most comfortable and spotlessly clean.At the restaurant, the meal[tapas] was delicious,and beautifully presented. Service was excellent.

                        • Single
                          7.4

                          The room was very clean and well presented. reception staff were very professional in their duties.i appreciate the shuttle service and found the driver to be very friendly.

                          I was very disappointed with the restaurant, as staff seemed to neglect solo diners. I stayed at the resort for the convienience of being close to the airport. I did not appreciate being made to wait for service. I dined at the airport inn chinese restaurant and enjoyed a high level of service.

                        • Single
                          7.4

                          Its closeness to the Airport and 24 airport shuttle are the hotel's best points and the aircon is a blessed relief.

                          This was my 5th Visit which was not recognised. On the last 2 visits attempts were made by bar staff to rip me off - this time they attempted to charge me for more expensive wine than I was served.

                        • Couple
                          5.0

                          It's extremely close to the airport and the shuttle bus (which just drives a very short distance) is running all day.

                          Although the Booked.net entry states so, the WiFi is not free. I mentioned the mistake in the Booked.net entry to reception, but they really didn't seem to care. I believe the WiFi is 5$ for 30 minutes. The wired internet connection is free, but it is agonizingly slow.

                        • Couple
                          3.8

                          It is very close to the airport (as are, by the way, many other better hotels)

                          The hotel's name cannot be seen from the road at night. The rooms look old and dirty. They have nobody to carry your luggage.

                          8.2

                          8.2

                          Convenience of location and excellent menu at the restuarant

                          I liked the Top service, friendliness, helpful, totally accomodating, relaxing. The staff think of everything. The meals are delicious...I am so happy with the Resort that I won't be staying anywhere else, when I'm in Darwin...an Excellent place...

                          10.0

                          Quality relaxing holiday place to stay

                          Ww went out for all meals as the choice and price of the food was a bit restrictive.

                        • Older travelers
                          9.0

                          Convenience to airport and nice relaxing atmosphere for short stay. Room very comfortable. Restaurant very good (meal bit pricey though), and excellent service staff.

                          The bed was comfortable but the pillows were awful :(

                        • Family with children
                          10.0

                          We stayed in a family suite which included a kitchenette and exceeded our expectations on space, comfort and facilities. The pool was set in pleasant surroundings and great for the kids. First class menu and service at the restaurant, including a decent wine list. Although not cheap, the hotel certainly represented good value for money for Darwin in peak season. If you're renting a car, consider staying here instead of the cbd or marina.
