Metro Advance Apartments & Hotel Darwin

Reviewed 21 July 2012

After returning from a 3 week holiday in Bali, we landed very early in the morning in Darwin. My husband was feeling very poorly and just needed to lie down somewhere. At about 9 am we made our way over to the hotel, knowing full well check in isn't normally until 2 pm. Property manager Nina was very sympathetic and offered the conference room as a place to lie down, she gave us towels so we could shower by the pool and offered cold water to drink. She also said she would try and chase up a room for us. In the end, it didn't even take 5 minutes! We were checked in and in bed by 9.30 am! I was very impressed as July is considered busy season in Darwin.
We had stayed at Quest before and as always, our stay was great. Rooms have everything you need, small kitchenette in the room and free laundry facilities in the basement are a great bonus! The hotel is very close (3 minute walk) to Mitchell Street where all the bars and restaurants are and Woolworth's is around the corner.
We will definitely stay again!

We stayed in a very spacious and comfortable two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the 3rd floor. The apartment had all amenities we needed inc kitchen and laundry facilities. We were very impressed! The staff were also incredibly friendly and helpful.
The hotel is centrally located to shops, restaurants and Darwin's nightspots.
We will be back next time we're in town! Thanks Quest!

It's very difficult finding family accommodation in Darwin in July. All accommodation is incredibly overpriced as well! Bearing that in mind, the good points for these apartments: very convenient to shops, mall, restaurant and particularly the supermarket; the apartment is very well kitted out and reasonably well appointed; staff were very friendly and helpful. Bad points: we were in an apartment over Cavenagh St and it was very noisy; bathroom is a bit tired.

I would have scored these apartments higher if they had been more reasonably priced. In the end I was just glad to get somewhere to stay at all!

Room Tip: Ask for a room off Cavenagh st to avoid the street noise.

We had a two bedroom apartment on the top floor which was very comfortable with balcony over the Pool area. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and very well appointed. We had 4 adults in the apartment and there was room for all of us and our stuff without us being on top of each other. The staff were very cheerful and happy to help with anything at all from recommending local eateries, arranging transport, extra towels etc. The parking was a easy access and the property was secure.

I would recommend this property for an extended stay, for families friends or even alone as it's only a short walk to many good eateries, and Woolworths is right next door for supplies!

i have stayed at the Quest in Darwin numerous times, and i have not found the apartments lacking -
in any way. From the cleaning staff, whom are always ready to help you if you ask for anything, to the front desk where the staff are friendly and very competent. Which is a great reflection of the higher management .As someone who always takes along my children, the hotel is very child friendly , and from what I've observed, couples seem to have a very good time as well...... as i am mildly disabled, walking to the supermarket is only about 50mtrs away, as well as restaurants and night venues are just around the corner. Extremely easy to see Darwin city everything is at hand.One major plus for the Quest other hotels I've stayed in, in Darwin have numerous fire alarms going off, throughout the day and night, and if you happen to be staying on the17th floor etc and being mildly disabled trying to get out of the building down the fire escape, it is not fun,if there really was a fire i would be toast,my little boy is now terrified of high rise. so the Quest Darwin is a great holiday.

Room Tip: East side balconies , are in full sun, if you like that great if not?
