We stayed at Palms City Resort for the 3rd time and again thoroughly enjoyed our time. The location is perfect, the service is great. Staff are always smiling and helpful. Our room cost was very reasonable and included breakfast. Will definitely be staying there the next time we visit Darwin.

Staff was friendly and helpful on checking and our room clean and modern. Quiet and well-maintained. Breakfast buffet, extra $23 ok but overpriced. Free parking. Pick a room in the back, as there is a side gate with closer access to the CBD.

Pleasantly surprised by how economical, comfortable and charming this resort was. We enjoyed our garden bungalow stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Continual cleaning all around the property keeps it attractive and pleasant for guests. Highly recommend.

Arrived with my family in Darwin without having a reservation. Palms was the third phonecall I made and were more than happy to provide a room with early check-in. The garden surroundings are a refreshing change in comparison with other hotels on the esplanade. Will definitely stay here again

“Book a bungalow. Think there are 3 different sizes but we found the small one is more than adequate for a short stay.”
