    Hi we stayed over the weekend & had a great time, my question relates to the offshore company that takes your phone bookings. Is there a direct phone number to the hotel in Darwin? As every time I have called the listed number I have got an offshore call centre staff who take forever to just book the room & ask me many questions with no relation to making my booking & it is extremely frustrating to deal with. Today I recommended a customer to stay at the hotel & I called on her behalf & it took over 10 minutes to make the booking which was totally unnecessary and I will not be calling again so am hoping there is another method of contact.
