Mercure Darwin Airport Resort, Eaton
Great place to stay, short or long term.
I enjoyed my stay here. Loved the pool. No problems with mosquitoes here. Very helpful reception staff. Allowed me to check in hours beforehand. Also gave bus advised to get to the Causarina Square. So easy. Will stay here again. The airport shuttle is always available and the driver is delightful.

Only just OK
This place is very old. Looks nice from the outside. The entry, bar around the pool is nice but the rooms are not and way over priced

Very Good8.0
close to airport, nice gardens.
Stayed in a one bedroom spa suite. Since last visit in this room type a bit of a spruce-up has taken place, new couch, tiles and paint. Good to see. Carpet is still really terrible, and the Mecure amenities are so-so. Transfer bus departed just as I was arriving, with one passenger ( didn't wait for all passengers bags to be picked up, and the sign says not to call before you have your bags) So I walked to the hotel. Check-in was un-enthusiastic and communicated with as few words as possible and on check out I had to throw the keys over the desk and leave as I didn't have time to wait for the slow moving queue. Pool was clean and well maintained. Will be back to stay again on airport transfers.

Worst stay
Truly one of the worst hotels we ever stayed at! The rooms were spread out but the hotel didn't have enough lights to guide us to our room. Room numbering is really confusing and not properly labeled. Although the description of the room said it would come with a sofa bed, the room did not have that. Extra bed sheet we used to improvise an extra bed for our kiddos had blood stains on it.
