We stayed in a hotel room for one night, it was a typical size hotel room that could sleep three. The queen bed was comfy and the room was very clean and neat. Definitely not a cheap shabby place. We did a Groupon for the night and it included brekkie for two. Probably the best hotel buffet breakfast we have...

I had a basic room during my stay. It was a delight to be at a place where all the staff were warm and friendly. They were always helpful. One improvement could be the inclusion of eating utensils and wine glasses for when takeaway is brought back to the room. Thank you and if I am back this way, I...

I visited for work. Palms was a great base. I had a villa that gave me privacy and space. A great little balcony and the ultimate - a small plunge spa/ pool. Staff were great. I even hired a bike to get around town. It is right on the Esplanade so perfect for walking/ running as well. There is a...

Met all my needs. Clean, comfortable bed, good secure parking, felt safe travelling solo, excellent location, fabulous pool, friendly staff and great air con. It was a great price and if you want 5 star go elsewhere and pay. If you want to pay less and be very comfortable this is the place. I'd stay again for sure.

We were lucky enough to get very competitive rates for both of the rooms we stayed in, so bear this in mind as you read the review. We stayed in one of the cabins for a night, paying $100. At this price the accommodation was an absolute bargain. Everything you could need for a comfortable stay and right in the...

Lovely surrounds, ok rooms. Pool fantastic. Staff friendly. Our bathroom, the shower was terrible, every time we used it, the water would spray everywhere, making it extremely hard to keep anything dry that was left on the floor, or to shower a 3yo, to adjust the temp of water I pretty much had to get in with him every time....

It is very close to CBD and the Waterfront, could not be more convenient. In general it is very quiet here. The cabin itself is small but adequate,modern and stylish and very clean, the bathroom is excellent. I had cabin 215, no kitchen, only a microwave, toaster and small fridge. Parking is the only issue. Some cabins have an allocated...

I recently stayed at the Palms. Central, tropical, lush, comfortable and very relaxing. The pool is in a beautiful setting. The bungalow I stayed in was cool and comfortable away for the humidity of Darwin. Lovely little kitchen area and staff attending to the room daily. The reception staff were very attentive and nothing was too much for them. Thanks...
