    Superb

    The staff were excellent the rooms clean. Free wiFi in the lobby. Evening Market next door on a Thursday. Breakfast buffet excellent and cheap. Other food ok but not great. Taxi's are cheap. Everyone in Darwin was really nice to us. I would recommend this hotel.

    Don't go in the lift if your birthday or anniversary is imminent it is very slow. The location is not great for walking to the city - it is really a taxi ride.

    The Chinese restaurant. The room was spacious and nice. The front desk helpful. The shuttle do go in the city. The casino.

    The buffet at the sunset restaurant. We had breakfast and lunch there, it was really not good. The air conditionning in the hotel is much to cold.

    The atmosphere was great. We both enjoyed coming into town and been by the beach to relax for the weekend. I would definetly stay in that room again, they got the room ready an hour early for us as I had previously asked for. The porter was a great guy along with all the reception area girls and guys. We loved it. That when my husband had for got his shoes back at home they looked for lost property for him but he was still allowed to walk around in thongs. Fantastic time Debbie & Bluey from Humpty Doo

    The clock was able to read my iPhone. What is on for that weekend in the Casino Keep the pool bar open longer

    I was upgraded to a one bedroom spa suite, it was awesome! The lagoon and the pool bar were great, I forgot I was in Darwin!

    Very good

    close to beach for walks, we looked at the new lagoon pool and rooms which were very nice but a bit expensive for us

    have stayed in better room for less but guess we paid for the location we wanted

    Superb

    Enjoyed the location and I have stayed there previously with the AFL team West Coast. Room was very good (Upgraded). Facility was very comfortable and clean with a great bed so all good. The one part I disliked was not F & B facility within the hotel meaning you need to be in a smokey casino to obtain a coffee or meal.

    As above having to attend a smokey casino bar for a coffee. Even at breakfast the venue smelss of a bar.

    Have stayed many times here, but first time in the new wing pool side. Fantastic extension and up there with most of them on the eastern sea board. Even the swim up bar is a winner. Well done Sky City

    The menu in the Cove restaurant could be improved, but fantastic service.

    Close to the markets and city centre

    Rooms are nice but old, requested a porta cot with the expectation that this would be set up in the room when arrived, however we were given the porta cot to take up to the room then had to call and request sheets. The porta cot was old and of poor quality it collapsed on the sides during the night when I went to pick my baby up. Not exactly 5 star rating service or equipment, especially when paying that king of money.
