Ranked #22 of 36 Hotels in Darwin
Reviewed 14 August 2016

Stayed for three nights in a ground floor unit. The motel is in a quiet residential street in the suburb of Parap. By car 10-15 minutes to the centre of Darwin. The bed was comfy and the blockout curtains kept the morning light put for a good sleep in! The motel is old built after Cyclone Tracey but in good condition. The room was really clean. Jug and coffee some plates and cutlery supplied and small fridge. Nothing to cook on in the room but a BBQ out by the pool - which was also really clean. The shower pressure was excellent. Very poor wifi in room but there are signs to sit out by reception which is annoying at night. Great position, the year round Parap markets(Saturday morning) are around the corner, pub with bottle shop and restaurant also round the corner. fish & chip, Mexican, Chinese restaurants newsagency all round the corner.
My only complaint would be the bed only had two sheets on it-no blankets and none in the room. I had my own otherwise I would have been cold during the night but I did not ask for any either as had my own.

Room Tip: All have terrace or balcony if smokers, no lift only stairs so if older or small children ground flo...

This motel is easy to get to - one street from the Stuart Highway. It is close to the city centre and we found it an easy walk to Mindil Beach. We chose the motel because it had outdoor parking - we have a high vehicle so we avoid the hotels in the city centre that have under cover parking. This motel was built in 1974 so is not modern but it is comfortable. The pool was kept clean. We had a room on the first floor so didn't have many stairs to climb. It suited our needs.

Room Tip: If you cannot climb stairs ask for a room on the first floor.

We had a double room on the ground floor. Although the premises is a bit "tired", it was clean and adequate. It was obviously suffering from a lack of custom, as there were few guests, but it was in the off season. The people running the establishment were wonderful, and were very helpful. Its location close to the Parap shopping centre was a bonus.

Friendly helpful staff, clean and great rates. Location is perfect for Mindil markets and sunset. Close to CBD. Staff could not do enough to make our stay great. They were good at recommending things to see and do and also with car hire got us a great value place to rent a car.

Room Tip: we were on the lower floor and was so quiet and handy

Have stayed at Paravista on and off the past 6 years.Hotels in Darwin in general a major rip off.$10 probably for a taxi into the CBD from Paravista.Bargain.Prices for rooms brilliant.Pool area great to relax and read and chat with other guests.Denis is normally around the place and we would catch up on what I've been up to since my last visit.Tenielle also with her smiling face is always around.Great little balcony in rooms.Paraphernalia village around the corner for a stroll for some great coffees.Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Darwin either for one night or more.Denis and Tenielle are more than happy to recommend places to eat,things to do etc.Great place also to have a drink in the afternoons with the managers at the end of their working day.Tell me what motel do you get that at..Late night check in's easily accessible.Have recommended Denis and Tenielle to a lot of travellers over the years.Save the ridiculous dollar's you will pay in average hotels in Darwin CBD and stay at Paravista.
