We ended up having to stay in Darwin the other night unplanned. We asked our mechanic where to stay as we had a truck and he recommended this motel. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful.

We arrived late at night at the Darwin airport so I booked a room for one night here. It's really close to the airport, just 5 minute drive. It's clean and comfortable. I would not stay here much longer but it was perfect for one night stopover.

The hotel was easy to find. Inside it was tidy and the aircon worked great. Room had a mini bar. Bed was really comfy I did find it hard to park my 4wd as most of the parking was undercover I found it hard to turn around. Staff were friendly.

This is a modern motel, that is not too old, so still sparkles. Rooms are a bit small but you really only need them to sleep in. Bathroom very small but workable. Each room has a balcony so that extends the room size. Staff are friendly and service is prompt.

First time at this property. On a busy road, and of course I had a front room. General traffic noise heard up until about 10. Room was modern enough and comfortable. Arrangement with Airport Tavern for chargeback of meals. Pool. Plenty of parking, operate shuttle to airport. Not much around here unless you are overnighting to catch a plane.

Stayed in family room Hotel is new, clean and rooms well set up . Pool area is great. Tavern next door is OK for eating but ask for a room on the side of the hotel opposite the tavern especially on weekend nights. Shuttle bus to and from airport is easy to organise even at night. Staff courteous and friendly.
