    Pleasant stay at the Palms City Resort
    For a very reasonable price the Palms was an oasis in the middle of the city and close to all of the action. The pool was the center of all activity inside the hotel grounds. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Taxis were readily available, although many places were within walking distance. My garden bungalow room was small, but was well appointed with sink, fridge, television, comfortable bed and a small front porch. Breakfast was decent, but at extra cost. I would stay again if I return to Darwin.

    Love The Tip Top
    Richard at front desk was very curt and grumpy and not very helpful.

    Amazing location and great service
    Amazing location, right next to the Parliament House and easy walking to the main strip in Darwin and the waterfront. Beautiful grounds although we didn’t have the villa. Room is small but sufficient for our purposes (staying before the Kakadu National Park tour). The hotel allowed us to leave a bag with them while we went on the tour and allowed us to do laundry there after the tour ($5 wash, $4 dry). Overall excellent service and great experience.
