- great location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 14, 2012

After a lot of internet checking for what I would consider ‘reasonably priced’ accommodation providers, we decided to stay at Palms City Resort. Although expensive it appeared to be very close to all attractions and transport options and it is. Easy walking distance to lively Mitchell Street, where there are lots of choices of eateries and the all important supermarket for breakfast and other supplies. Be aware that Palms City Resort does not have on site catering facilities, but each accommodation unit does have the basics for self catering.

The resort is located on The Esplanade and directly across the road from the coastal linear park that abuts the shore line – there is no beach along that section of the coast and I would be very wary swimming anywhere in Northern Territory waters owing to the ever present danger of crocodiles. The real up-side of the location is it is reasonably quiet, although there is some traffic noise heard in the villas.

Palms City has 5 levels of accommodation available – Standard Motel Rooms, Superior Motel Rooms, and 3 styles of Villas – Executive, Business and Duplex. During our 2 stays at Palms City we stayed in Superior Motel Room and a Duplex Villa. Although less expensive and has slightly less amenities, we felt the superior motel room was better value and had more space for 2, but the downside was a view of a corridor from the windows where it seemed the entire complex used as a walkway to get to/from reception. The Duplex Villa was very comfortable with a private balcony with outdoor dining facilities for 2 and a gas BBQ. We did not use the BBQ.

All the villas are located in garden settings with plenty of foliage. There is an on-site swimming pool with a BBQ of its own. The reception desk is staffed 24 hours and we found the staff to be very helpful.

Web site below is the accommodation providers own site, however we booked and paid via Wotif and strangely feel we may have secured a slightly better deal than direct.

If you are travelling on The Ghan, Palms City Resort is on the complementary bus route to the rail station - pick up is 7.40am

This hotel is a 3 star hotel right on the Esplanade and within walking distance to the CBD area. Pretty basic accomodation. The complex also had self contained Bungalows which looked very nice. $175pn

A piece of tropical paradise!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 5, 2009

I stayed here over NY 2008 and enjoyed it so much I extended my stay by one day. I had a business villa (without the spa) There were tropical plants all around my unit and I was not on a main thoroughfare. I was behind some tropical plants looking toward the pool. The pool was lovely and cooling in the 32+ heat.

Unique Quality: The villa was fully equipped with a cook top, microwave, small fridge and dishes. It had courtesy tea and coffee. The bathroom had a shower. On the deck there was an electric bbq. The staff were extremely helpful and I enjoyed my stay here. Highly recommend this accomodation.
I got a good hotel rate as it was the off season.

Directions: On the Esplanade at the far end. Across the street from the park near historical sites, and also near Mitchell St, (street behind hotel) where the clubs and restaurants are.
