    location was good,

    very limited parking, disinterested and unhelpful onsite manager, hard bed, and well over priced at $170 per night for a dubious 3 star,

    We booked in late an the key was available. The managers answered all our questions and were helpful. The rooms were great - clean and budget amenities as expected. Close to all bustops and main shopping area. Good place to stay for a quick trip.

    Pretty good as it met our needs. Had to eat out most nights as no microwave, but not a major issue.

    The staff member on arrival was extremely rude due to the fact I was LATE at 0645pm......

    The domestic staff were happy and friendly - tried to do what they could to make our stay comfortable.

    Advertising that Poinciana provided 'free' wi-fi for internet. It was a joke! To access it, you have a clumsy system where you have to get a docket with a user code and password...not just once, but every time you needed to use it. But, what was worse, was the fact that the router was excessively 'choked' or was not up to the job eg. it took 15 mins for webmail to load... the webmail I use doesn't have adds it loads instantly as a rule. I got 2 of the mentioned dockets, and gave up - I had to buy a ($49) Telstra usb dongle which worked perfectly. In this day and age people are connected to family & friends around the world, they don't need to be pissed around by this type of system...particularly when you are paying for it! For what should have been a fairly average hotel experience, it was somewhat diminished by the lack of attention to a basic service. All in all, I would recommend Poiciana for 1 resaon only- its location.

    It was nice and comfortable. The shower was excellent and the room was clean.

    Reception was often not open during business hours. Had to phone for service.

    We liked where it was close to town and the owners couldn't have been nicer and friendlier,close to everything,bus service .just great place to stay

    Noise from nightclub patrons late at night. Bashing on neighbouring door late at night but dealt with quickly by manager. It was an older building that the owners had made the most of its later life but not "too flash".

  • Group of friends

    The location - it was about a 3 minute walk into the centre of town. This meant that we were close enough for everything we could need or want, but far enough away that the busy night clubs and restaurants wouldn't have kept us awake. The staff were also very friendly, approachable and kind.

    There were a lot of locals hanging around and we were warned to be wary of locking our door behind us, whether we were in or out. Someone attempted to open our door one night while we were sleeping. Not really the Poinciana's fault but maybe they could restrict access to hotel guests only somehow?

    Location , friendly , clean and comfortable, cheerful efficient staff and excellent value in the heart of Darwin - cant wait to go back again !
