2/10 Poor

i did not even book in after i seen the state of the motel with doors missing, paint peeling, filthy surrounds, no body at reception. Looked like a half way house. stayed elsewhere.

2/10 Poor

This place was (apparently) the place to be a long time ago. Now it is one step off being a ruin. The only good point was that it had rooms for reasonable comparatively cheap rates. The rest of Darwin was booked out at below $300/n.

4/10 Fair

We were initially impressed with staff very helpful as we were leaving late in the evening to go to the airport and need a taxi, they booked for us. The air conditioner was very noisy so very difficult to sleep. Cobwebs on the walls near door. Needs updating.
