    location, and handy to all interests

    yes, the first interation with the reception desk, was very exasparating and drawn out. I provided my name and booking printout and the time it took to confirm the booking was very long. Since I had prepaid with my credit card three months prior, it was annoying. I was tired and had been travelling most of the day. As for the rest of the staff I found them all very helpful.

    Good

    dinner cruise on darwin Harbour on Saturday night and shopping and then returned home Sunday morning via Sydney

    parking entrance is a nightmare as oneway street. had an interesting conversation with parking manager who was standing outside of parking entrance and in a very abusive tone told us we could not park or reverse into front of building...not good first impression

    Fabulous

    I liked the location.

    I did not like the fact that this was a totaly Non smoking Hotel. For the guest that stayed in the Hotel and smoked they had to go down levels in the lift and stand out the front in the street. Please ensure that this is clearly marked when booking.

    This hotel scored above expectation. The place is modern, clean, well aquipped, spacious...it has an air of quality about it that one does not find in many hotels. Above all that the staff are extremely accomodating, professional and go the extra mile.It was a very enjoyable stay and I recommend Darwin Central without reservation.
