Clean roomsPosted Jul 31, 2015
Disappointed with Internet. Was too slow to use. The foxtel did not work properly, no sport no news. Apart from that hotel was good. Staff were lovely. Have to get a bus or taxi to Darwin city. Bed was clean and quite comfortable

Great locationPosted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: The pool areas are good - although at the infinity pool there is no bar service - due to construction.
Location: Location is very good. right on Mindl Beach. Great place to view sunset from. Close to the city and other attractions.
Hotel is well located and has good facilities, although construction is currently going on. Only problem is that staff are under trained in hospitality and service. From reception to bars & restaurants the service is lacking. The man at reception couldn't tell me anything about the breakfast options available. We ordered food at the bar, when the food was delivered there was no cutlery, when we asked for some they said sorry have run out- end of story, no offer to go get some. We were expected to eat our meal with our fingers - OK for the sandwich and chips but not so good for the coleslaw and salad!! Watched in the restaurant as one couple where sat at a table for breakfast, while they were getting their food at the buffet another couple were sat at their table - even though their glasses etc were there. When the first couple returned the second couple refused to move, the first had to find another table to sit at - staff did nothing, not even an apology.

Seems to take a step down each time we visit, can safely say we will not be going back after our most recent stay.

Lovely nightPosted Jun 16, 2015 on Wotif
We had a delicious dinner at Il Piatto and a drink at one of the bars and then came back to our room for a spa bath and then a wonderfully comfortable sleep. Great night, loved it.

Great place to stayPosted Jun 12, 2015 on Wotif
Awesome spot but staff in casino could be better. They are slow and not worth paying. Still recommend going

A great holiday hotelPosted Jun 10, 2015 on Hotels
Skycity Darwin has all the features of a 5 star holiday and is in a beautiful location. The rooms in the original part of the hotel were very comfortable; as well as a view of sea and gardens, entry to the rooms is via covered walkways overlooking internal courtyard gardens. The complementary guest laundry was very welcomed. The choice of restaurants and pools in both the original and new parts of the hotel as well as the casino is good. Complementary wifi throughout the complex is great. It was good value for money compared to other Darwin hotels. We look forward to staying again.

Beach hotel close to a lot of Darwins 'to do's'Posted Jun 2, 2015 on Wotif
Our room was very musty but everything else was good. The renovations by the pool meant we couldn't have a drink or food so it meant we didn't stay for long which was a shame!

5 Star Hotel 3 Star servicePosted Jun 2, 2015 on Wotif
I found the room comfortable but it lacked a full length mirror and the right tapware to fill up the kettle. I often approached the front of house with staff talking unprofessionally. Overall a good stay but not completely 5 stars!

Had a fantastic one night break and would strongly recommend the hotel to anyone.

Lovely pool, however renovations disrupt peace.Posted May 30, 2015 on Wotif
The hotel was lovely but no blackout blinds in the room which is a major detriment. Rooms also aren't soundproof which means you can hear people passing by at all hours. Easy walk to Mindil Beach Markets and bus stop. Food was average, a lot of pre-cooked and then re-heated food. Room service was always cold and breakfast much more expensive than it was worth.
