This motel is a short drive from the airport, Mindil Beach, Cullen Bay and the Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, but not that close to the city centre. It is also not far from Darwin Sailing Club, which serves very good meals with a great view (and is open to visitors from outside the Northern Territory, without...

I stayed at the Paravista for a total of 3 nights in early October.The main reasons I chose the hotel were that they would keep my bag in storage for 4 days while I went on a tour, their prices were within my budget while most of the other hotels in Darwin were too expensive,and,a huge plus, they have free...

A hotel built in the 1970s now in need of refurnishment and possibly a lift to the third floor. Comfortable, with everything you need in a stopover but out of the way - the only close attraction is the Parap markets on saturdays... otherwise you need a car.

An outdated property in desperate need of a refurbishment and with a manager in need of a new attitude. We stayed there as a group attending a wedding, many of us visiting from overseas and interstate. We were lucky to have received a group rate however upon seeing the condition of the property and room I was quick to realise...

Thank you chica cc for your review, what you forgot to mention is that your group of almost 30 members !! were having a very loud party in the pool area until after 1 am and six out of eight of our neighbours rang and complained about the noise. What you also forgot to mention was that the reason we...

Located in a quiet suburban street only one street back from the main road in Parap which is close to the city. The motel itself is pre cyclone, so has a nice 1970's retro charm which I love, if ultra slick and ultra modern is your thing this is not your place! The room was very clean with a nice...

Its oldish and had very little or no updating since it was built. Being on four floors and with no lift/elevator is not good although the super receptionist carried our two heavy cases up to room 18 as if they were empty! Its a good way out from Darwin CBD so you really need a car (I guess not unreasonable...

In a good local quiet area but within walking distance of several eateries and various shops. Clean, spacious room. Good value. Friendly and helpful staff. A few minutes drive from the airport and city centre.

I recently stayed here - firstly for one night on my way to Broome and then a further three nights on my way back. Yes, this motel is rather dated, but could find no fault in the standard of my room. Staff were very friendly - in fact went out of their way to help in many ways. Public transport...
