The cabin looked new. Was very clean and comfortable. The aircon was very cold which is great for Darwin weather. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You are able to have the pub next door add your bill on your room tab which is fantastic.

Great location in Darwin city, close to everything and within walking distance, friendly staff who always helped, great amenities, rooms a little small but we worked around that. Good to relax by the pool after being out during the day.

Hello Katerina. the Airport is outside the city. and the hotel is near the waterfront. so you would need to take a shuttle to get into the city. I suggest you to stay at the airport-hotel. is the easiest way and if you dont even stay a whole night it doesnt make sense to go into the city just for a few hours.
