Darwin Central Hotel
Right in the centre of town, this plush independent oozes contemporary style and impeccable facilities, including an award-winning restaurant. There are a range of stylish rooms with excellent accessibility for disabled travellers...
Mantra On The Esplanade
Pay less for city views, more for eye-popping harbour views in this slick complex of spacious suites and self-contained apartments. The vibe is fairly corporate, but the mood is relieved by cheerful splashes of colour, plush carpets and friendly staff...
Gagudju Crocodile Holiday Inn
Known locally as 'the Croc', this hotel is designed in the shape of a crocodile, which, of course, is only obvious when viewed from the air or Google Earth...
Quality Hotel Frontier Darwin
An easily spotted tower on the northern edge of town, this block of spacious, corporate-style rooms boasts excellent views, particularly from the 6th-floor apartments. Firm beds, mustard-coloured walls, neat little bathrooms and a rooftop restaurant.
Novotel Atrium Darwin
OK, OK, we know Novotel is a global chain and we've seen it all before, but what makes this one special are to-die-for ocean views and stylistic standards above the norm: subtle lighting, fresh flowers and interesting Indigenous art...
Relatively quiet, secure and comfortable, Barramundi Lodge is a touch above most backpacker places but still caters to a budget crowd...
Kings Canyon Resort
Only 10km from the canyon, this well-designed resort boasts a wide range of accommodation from a grassy camp area with its own pool and bar to deluxe rooms with an almost-outdoor spa...
Aurora Alice Springs
Right in the town centre – the 'back' door opens out onto Todd Mall, the front door looks over the Todd River – this modern hotel has a relaxed atmosphere and a great restaurant, the Red Ochre Grill...
Palms City Resort
True to name, this centrally located resort is fringed by palm-filled gardens...
In the thick of the Mitchell St action but quiet and comfortable, Value Inn lives up to its name, especially out of season. En-suite rooms are small but sleep up to three and have fridge and TV.
Alice In The Territory
This sprawling resort is the best bargain stay in town. The rooms, doubles or four-bed dorms, have tiny bathrooms, but otherwise are bright, spotless and comfortable and offer two free movie channels...
Travelodge Mirambeena Resort Darwin
This sprawling resort right in the CBD dates back to the '80s and is starting to look a little weathered in places. But the family-friendly vibe, gorgeously lush frangipani-filled gardens and two of the best swimming pools in Darwin are redemptive...
Desert Palms Resort
This hotel has a relaxed island vibe with its shady palms, cascading bougainvillea and Indonesian-style villas...
Chifley Alice Springs Resort
With a circle of double-storey buildings arranged around a swath of lawns and gum trees, the Chifley has a relaxed country-club vibe...
Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront
Two hotels in one building: standard doubles at Vibe, and studios and apartments next door at the Medina. Either way, you're in for an upmarket stay with friendly staff and a great location in the Darwin Waterfront Precinct...
Ibis Styles Alice Springs Oasis (Formerly All...
With two swimming pools, the central one shaded by sails and surrounded with palm-shaded lawn, All Seasons convincingly recreates the oasis experience. The rooms are conventional and comfortable enough to keep it busy with tour groups...
White Gum Motel
This impeccable old-fashioned motel is located 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from the mall, and perfect if you want a reasonably priced room with your own full kitchen. The spacious rooms are self-contained, clean as a whistle, and ideal for families.
Gagudju Lodge Cooinda
Gagudju Lodge Cooinda is the most popular accommodation resort in the park. It’s a modern oasis but, even with 380 campsites, facilities can get very stretched...
Darwin's only true five-star hotel, the salubrious Crowne Plaza is one block back from the Esplanade, but still commands fine sea views. Beyond the curvilinear concrete exterior, the full gamut of hi-tech gadgetry awaits the business traveller...
Double Tree By Hilton Darwin
The Holiday Inn chain occupies two hotels on the Esplanade - this retro survivor is by far the hippest of the two. It may look old-school externally, but inside everything's up to date. It's worth paying a bit extra for an ocean-view suite...
Knotts Crossing Resort
Knott's Crossing is more a motel and cabin resort than camping ground, but it's a great spot for caravans and campervans, too...
Desert Gardens A Member Of Novotel Hotels
One of Yulara's originals, the standard rooms, particularly the bathrooms, are looking dated but, at the time of research, a major renovation was planned for the near future...
