I arrived at about 1:30am. The lobby is dingy and depressing; the front desk is chipped and cracked, and the lobby aircon doesn't really work. And after a 10-minute search, the receptionist said he couldn't find any record of my booking (which I'd made through Booking.com). Were it not for the fact that I knew that no other hotel had...

we stayed 17-18-19 May, sorry we did and paid in advance. this should be titled a workman's accommodation house, as few holiday guests and lots of trades people occupying the hotel. Dining room on roof top, via stairs, was basic buffet and expensive. room we had was on ground floor adjacent lifts, which one could hear all night! room servicing...

Darwin in the dry season is hard enough in terms of getting a room, but when you add on all the enormous projects and so on that are starting up there, rooms are scarce indeed, Of course that inevitably pushes room prices up and lower end hotels end up charging 4 star prices. the "Quality Hotel Frontier Darwin" has only...

We stayed here for two nights last week, Thursday and Friday. After reading the bad reviews on here we were braced for a poor experience. We checked in early which thankfully wasn't a problem but were given the room closest to reception. We were worried but thought we'd take our chances. The room itself was much better than others have...

The company I work for puts me up here for a few nights, twice a year. As I am not the one who pays for it I really shouldn't complain. I have stayed here at least 6 times in the past few years. Every stay has had an issue of some form, from getting woken up with drunks coming in,...

We got a airport shuttle to the hotel at 1:30am check in went smooth. We went to our room which the hallways are very dark. We opened the door and my 3 year old could smell the same disgusting cigarette smell I could. There are no windows to open just air con and its a non smoking room but smelt...

This hotel was chosen because it was close to Avis, from where we were to rent a car for a few days' exploration of Kakadu. It was convenient also because it was close to the road out of Darwin. We stayed here twice and had two quite different rooms. One was high up and very basic, the other (a "cabana")...

The rooms were cleaned daily, including fresh linen, the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to attend to any queries I made. I especially commend Tina on reception during business hours who went out of her way to help me with my lost baggage and would inquire how we were daily. We stayed there for two...
