Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our stay at the Darwin Central Hotel exceeded most of the other 'big name' accommodation we had used during our holiday in the NT. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

All good. Was a bit confused by the holding of $100 for a bond, or room hold. The lovely lady told me I would get it back, so I hope she is correct! Geepers, this is confusing as well! I have to write an essay about how good everything was! I only got a C for english when I did...

Excellent hotel in central location. Staff were brilliant - always polite and approachable. Breakfast was bordering on world class - should probably have a michelin star. This really is the Burj Al Arab of Darwin.

Highly recommended to all, staff were friendly and efficient assisting with everything required and requested. I have stayed here in a number of occasions and it's position is perfect being just off Mitchell Street and close to everything.

A clean, well-run hotel, centrally located, and offering a first-rate breakfast. I would suggest, however, that you have your dining-room up and running for the evening meal. We had to go out into the rain to find a place to eat.

Was pretty good but has the potential to be great. And if the room rate was better for locals it would be amazing. If you also added incentives for locals to stay I would anticipate the hotel would be a lot busier.

Great location in the heart of Darwin City, close to shops and places to eat on Mitchell St. The quick friendly check in and service from all the staff made life easy after a long flight. Clean and tidy rooms at a good price made the stay enjoyable.

Stayed for four nights on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the central location gave us access to all facilities and locations we needed to visit during our stay. Staff friendly and helpful as and when required. Breakfast was included in our package and more than adequate, ranging from Continental...
