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.

Palm City Resort is in a great location. You can walk to all city facilities and points of interest. The rooms are basic but large and clean. Another bonus is free off street parking. I have stayed here a few times and will do so next time I need to stay in Darwin.

Are there tv's in the rooms

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.
