FAQs about hotels in Darwin








Australia's Cyclonic Cocktail

Darwin displays a cocktail of cultures from ‘Aussie larrikins’ to the local Aboriginals from Larrakia Country. Throw in an influx of international visitors who now call the Top End of Australia home, and this concoction bedazzles with busy outdoor markets and an adequate supply of drinking holes (pubs).

The modern Darwin Wharf precinct, including Stokes Hill Wharf, still gleams on those endless summer days having been rebuilt after the destruction caused both during World War II bombings and Cyclone Tracey. Grab a bar stool with a view of the harbour or a seat on a terrace and sip a cool drink in Australia’s northernmost, tropical capital city.

A popular time for tourists is Darwin’s dry season that starts in May and ends in October. If you prefer it hot and humid, then the end of the wet season can be spectacular when the waterfalls in Kakadu and Litchfield national parks are at their mightiest.

Australia’s wild frontier can be reached all the way from Adelaide and Alice Springs along the picturesque Stuart Highway that ends at Daly Street in the CBD. Outside the centre are the natural surrounds in Palmerston, Humpty Doo and closer by is Mindil Beach with its famous Sunset Market.

Darwin International Airport has international flights from Singapore and Bali. You can choose from a variety of hotels, hostels and apartments on Booking.com.

    Most things are close by, lots to do, free things to do, beautiful sunrise and sunset, good restaurants. Must see:- sunset at Mindil Casino, dinner at the waterfront, swim in the man made lagoon. I recommend the hop on hop off bus tour. Parking in the city can be difficult but you can Uber anywhere in the city in 5-10 mins. Wait time for an Uber is 1-2 mins. Favourite places to eat - Hanuman Restaurant and Trampoline ice cream. Darwin Hotel and the Deck Bar have good food and atmosphere. Do not recommend Monsoon. The burger buns are hard as a rock.

    Darwin us a magical place. The atmosphere is unique, the people friendly and very laid back. I visit Darwin every year for my holidays. I usually go in the wet season because you get the pick of the accomodation for a much reduced price.

    While it was very humid and a few short showers as its at the end of the wet season .I loved the stunning scenery .Darwin while its a city you can still relax ,chill out. The waterfront area is a great place to relax ,dine out and catch up with a few friends. Darwin is a easy city to get around we used Uber and Public Transport NSW Seniors get free transport just flash your seniors card. If you want they have lots of scooters around town to hire . We loved learning about the history of Darwin. Plenty of places that you can enjoy for free. My best tip is go to the NT Tourism Office they have all the info you need and can help you with any bookings We did Kakadu by flight ,day trip to Lichfield ,Sail Darwin and cruise on the harbour about the Bombing of Darwin . Loved going out to Stoke wharf and enjoying the local resturants.

    There is almost nothing to do in Darwin and downtown there are lot of homeless people. From Darwin you can do day excursions, for example to Kakadu, but you will spend about 8 hours on a bus or minivan. It is not worth!

    Darwin is a fantastic place for a holiday.

    Darwin is a fantastic place for a holiday. Particularly if you like hot weather war history or natural beauty. Best time to travel is in the dry season if you can (Aussie winter) because you will find everything open and accessible. But if you want everything to yourself the wet season (Aussie summer) is okay (just expect some things to be closed, and your eyeballs will sweat from the humidity) but if you can get out of the heat every once and awhile still a great holiday will be had! They have lots of interesting places to visit like the world war 2 museums, oil storage tankers, aviation museum, Royal Flying doctors museum. Litchfield national park is not far out of Darwin where you can take in the natural beauty and plenty of waterfalls (dry season). The wharf area for foodies, plenty of hotels and night life in Mitchell Street. If you are up for a tour there are plenty to Kakadu, Litchfield, fishing tours, helicopter and Darwin harbour cruises. We spent 10 days in Darwin (not our first visit) so our trip was more about relaxation this time but you could easy fill a couple of weeks looking at everything Darwin has to offer. I would recommend unless you plan on paying for tours, taxis or ubers etc a car is nearly essential (makes it way easier to get around, particularly in the heat). If you are travelling in the wet season (Aussie Summer) then check your hotel facilities are actually open (we found a hotel we stayed at didnt have the pool bar or restaurant open).

    Everything is always great here. Favourite commercial accomodation/hotel-apartment place to stay in Darwin by far. Staff here are absolutely wonderful, service is always amazing: they are all very warm and welcoming, approachable & accomodating - very helpful and kind. I love the apartments, privacy and balcony views regardless whether city or ocean (you can see Ocean from anywhere high up in Darwin!). Super comfortable, great beds and always super clean. Thank you Pandanas for always being so beautiful!

    We combined two bookings into an extended stay; this caused some confusion & angst initially, but a very efficient receptionist had identified the problem & had it all sorted by the time we arrived, her solution involving a room upgrade for the entire stay - all credit to her. Its a big hotel, so lifts & breakfast room can get a bit crowded, but overall it was very comfortable. The location is ideal for access to the waterfront and CBD. Great views too.

    The man who owns and operates the hotel (from the 1970's) is so nice, comes from the days when someone can't do enough for you. A really genuine person. The rooms are beautiful, all done up. Safe and secure with a pristine pool and safe off street parking, in a very nice neighbourhood, close to shops, markets, the airport and the City. We loved our stay in Darwin. Thank you, we'll be back!

    1. Location!! The apartment has excellent views of Darwin Waterfront and Harbour- we were lucky to witness all the Christmas festivities and light shows from our wide balcony. And, its a quick trip to the lift and down to join in on the action, restaurants and park on the doorstep. 2. Modern, comfortable, clean, spacious apartment is what our family of 7 needs ( 2 kids, 5 adults)

    Really handy to have an apartment with dishwasher, washing machine and drying racks etc. The swimming pool water was pleasantly cool compared to pools at some other hotels/public facilities in Darwin. It was great that you could spend the breakfast credit on lunch and grab and go items as well. The rooftop bar has amazing views and is good value.

    Provision of free airport shuttle was the main attraction to this hotel. We had arrived for the first time in Darwin at 5 a.m.. Was great that our phone call to the hotel was promptly answered with clear instructions on where we should wait for the hotel pick-up. Front desk check-in was efficient upon arrival. The hotel beds were comfortable.

    Why would you stat in a hotel room when you can have a beautiful, self contained, fully serviced apartment for about the same daily rate. A full size fridge, cooking facilities, air conditioning, it's as good, no it was better than living at home. Absolutely magic, will definitely stay here again in the future.
