I was booked into this hotel for a conference. the airconditioner was freezing, could not be adjusted. After 5 days of complaining was fixed only to turn into a sauna that once again could not be adjusted. Food in Vue was disgusting & service was non existent. Staff at reception very unfriendly.

Stayed in a Lagooon room (highly recommend over a standard hotel - better location and ambiance). Room was beautiful, comfortable and had great view of the lagoon pool. All resort amenities were great and staff very friendly (including restaurant staff). Walking distance to Mindill markets. Would have loved to have stayed longer.

Place has been extended to add a lagoon pool area with sand beach rooms that give direct pool access swim up bar.

We were graciously upgraded to a lagoon room. The original "Superior" room was very nice, but we only spent a moment there! The lagoon is gorgeous and the room was lovely. If you get a ground floor lagoon room you dive right into the lagoon from your balcony. Food was good, and so was the service. Highly recommended.

We had 3 nights in Darwin after a fishing trip and spent them at the SkyCity. The reception staff were coldly efficient, however the concierge team were more than excellent... not only in good advice/local knowledge but in going out of their way to assist. The room was luxurious and had a great view over the lagoon/sea. The restaurants were...

The Skycity hotel is very nice and the room service is great. The only hassle is the aircon that you cannot switch off, or increase to at least 25 degrees. The rooms are so COLD, that you need to keep doors open to heat up the room. Everything else was great.

Having visited Darwin many times over many years, and stayed in the many hotels there, I think this is the pick. I stayed in the older "Hotel Rooms" as apposed to new "resort rooms". Hotel Rooms building Might be 30 years old but still very good modernized rooms. Couple of things let down the rooms such as TV channels on...
