Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 3 children and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Jan and her partner were fantastic hosts. The kitchen facilities were a little less than I was expecting, but they were more than adequate and we kept ourselves well fed!

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

We were placed on the bottom level of a standard Darwin house, with the owners and another B and B couple upstairs. The owners lounge was placed in the carport downstairs where the smell of her smoking was horrific and never ending. Sitting on the outdoor table, water drips on top of you as you are trying to eat. Ever time they went to the toilet, we listened to the flushing as we are trying to eat. The air conditioners were set to 25 and couldn't be adjusted, making it uncomfortable all night. The washing machine had hours of operation which we had to ignore, as we were always sight seeing at these times. Very overpriced for what it is.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for choosing to stay at our property. We are very concerned that the 2 Bedroom poolside suite did not meet your expectations. In our daily interaction we were not made aware of any issues that would have easily been resolved. For the benefit of other guests that may read your review we advise the following. The Suite has its own dining area and table that does not have any plumbing adjoining or overhead. It appeared the air con control mode had perhaps been accidentally altered so that it was not in a "cool" mode. The larger unit in the suite on your check out was at 22 Degrees which would have been quite cold and hence the use of all the blankets from the blanket box. We own an air conditioning company so maintain and and set our units to manufactures recommendations. The Poolside outdoor area has a common guest use dining area. The drips do occur of an early morning occasionally under all our verandahs. This is due to Darwin's wet season with often very high humidity levels and condensation forms. The laundry facilities we believe are not overpriced. It is an honour system $2 per wash which includes the soap powder. $4 per hour for the use of the dryer. However we thankyou for your comments and will monitor the cost so as to be reasonable for our guests. We hope you have continued to enjoy your exploration of Darwin and the Top End.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for taking the time to review our property. We are pleased that you enjoyed our poolside 2 bedroom suite. The kitchen is now exclusive to this suite. Darwin accommodation is a little higher than other destinations however the region offers so much for visitors. I believe it was your first visit to Darwin. We aim to be affordable to our guests and with your large family for example a cabin at a nearby large van park would have been $20 per night more than our tariff charged. We are a Tourism approved, inspected and insured property with all the features and comfort as a home away from home. We hope you will return for a future stay at our bed and breakfast all suite property.
