          View of a brick wall...

          I stayed for 3 nights and was given a room far from reception and up a flight of stairs (pain in the butt with all of my luggage). I had a view of a brick wall that was partially obscured by a linen trolly that was permanently parked outside of my door. Wifi ($7 for 2 hours) did not reach my room. The staff were fairly pleasant and it was close to everything while being in on a fairly quiet street. I was there in the low season for $99 per night. The day I left the price shot up to $240/night -- I would have been OUTRAGED to pay that much for the rather shabby room. Okay but not great.

          We had a great four night stay in this resort which naturally was equipped with a pool and a lot of individual bungalows (duplex). The only downside if you could call it that was that the only meals available there was breakfast, however, it was within easy striking distance to many more eateries including a hotel restaurant only 50mtrs away.
          Situated right on the esplanade it was only a few minutes walk to the city center and cheaper takeaway food if required. We found that four days in Darwin was not enough although we did almost daily tours the first of which was a harbor cruise on the day of arrival. A wonderful experience but i have made note not to do any tours on the day of arrival as we were very short on time when we got there.
          The Staff in the hotel were extremely nice and helpful and i would heartily recommend this resort to anyone wanting to stay a while in Darwin.

          Darwin for a couple of days extended to 4 nights as no accommodation at Jabiru. Bit able to sort a visit to Kakadu.

          Did bike things as Mike needed to check leaking diff oil and I needed to get t-shirts!! Walked along the ANZAC park over looking the harbour. So much WWII history around Darwin. Also went to the heart of Darwin's night life …

          ... Court Bakewell, back at the home of Mick and Alison, Oscar and Archie Collins, Inge's niece, just before 6 pm. There were our car and van safely stored. The end of a most marvellous experience. A good shower was very welcome as was the comfy bed. Mick cooked us chops and salad for tea: so hospitable.
