This property is advertised on Luxury Escapes, however it is no more than 3 star. Rooms and hallways are dated. Buffet breakfast is cancelled, due to Covid I was advised. The breakfast was disappointing. Stingy with food offered. Better value breakfast outside of hotel. Great rooftop bar and friendly staff.

Thanks Wander, despite its name Luxury Escapes is just a booking channel much like the other online sites (although it is always cheaper to book direct with the hotel). Star rating are not determined by by people think of the decor of a place, they are determined by the condition and amenities of the rooms and property. As such we are classified as 4 star. I am sorry that you thought it was a buffet, we have not offered buffet since March 2020 and have created an exciting A la carte menu that you can order from. (I have doubled checked the Luxury website and it mentions daily breakfast not buffet - however if you received that in any communications from them can you please share so that can be amended). Our Breakfast bundles are $18 i.e. bacon and eggs and toast and a coffee or orange juice for $18. You cannot get this at other cafes at this great value, as coffees alone are in the $5-$6 range. If you could review one of the other cafes with examples of pricing that would be really helpful to compare. Thanks for your comments on our friendly team and rooftop.

Stayed for 5 nights and booked room with breakfast included but when arrived got informed that it was only to the value of $18 which they had a special menu with very basic choice over and above you had to pay first time we have encountered this. the food was ok but a little disturbing for a hotel that stressed Covid that the chefs handled cooked food with bare hands and plated it needless to say we only ate breakfast there once. The rooms were great roomy and kitchenette bed was not very comfy for a 4.5 star rated resort. The pool was nice clean and cool for swimming in only not much shade. Roof top bar was great and a pleasure to go to with great views and nibbles for free. Staff were great but above all may be a 3 star property with obvious cut backs in place

Hi Alan, thanks for staying with us and glad you liked our location and appreciated the cleanliness. In respect of the breakfast, I am a little confused, I do not know of anywhere (except buffets) where you pay for a meal and then can get extra food and drinks for free. The items below are the ones we have as $18 options on many including a meal and coffee or orange juice. These items are on the main menu and we also have an $18 only menu for guests that want to use that allowance exactly. Our variety of teas is also complimentary. We also offer mix and match where you can order single items from the menu to design your ideal breakfast. The $18 options are below and are great value. CLASSIC 2 eggs on English muffins, w bacon includes regular coffee or orange juice HEALTHY CHOICE Sauteed baby spinach, mushrooms & cherry tomato’s on toasted sourdough w regular coffee or orange juice VARIETY CLUB BREAKIE 2 Eggs, Bacon, grilled tomato, baked beans & toast 50c from every order goes to support Variety Club Children's charities CANADIAN MOUNTIE Hotcakes, bacon & eggs served with maple syrup HOTCAKES W MAPLE SYRUP & ICE CREAM with regular coffee, orange juice or smoothie MEDITERRANEAN OMELETTE Sundried tomatoes, capsicum, olives, mushroom, potato on toast topped with onion & crumbled feta CONTINENTAL COMBO Tropical fruit salad, w Yogurt or Muesli or Bircher includes a regular coffee or orange juice GRAB & GO GFO Mixed bread & preserves, popper, boiled eggs or fruit salad KIDS MENU: Plain cheese mini omelette w toast & juice popper Overall glad you enjoyed your stay and our facilities.

Wow our room had everything we needed and nothing was too difficult for the staff. Top bar had 360 degree views of the city and free canapes which went done nicely with a few drinks each evening. Breakfasts were fantastic and the coffee delicious.

An excellent week was spent in this hotel, which is about a 15 minute walk from Darwin Waterfront. We stayed in an executive 1 bedroom suite with harbour views. Although small, and I'm still not sure about the bedroom being enclosed by frosted glass walls, the apartment had everything required for a short stay. Microwave, oven and 2 burner stove, dishwasher, adequate kitchen utensils, full size fridge and washing machine, plus free WIFI. The bed was comfortable and the lounge area contained a 2 seater lounge, TV, small dining table for 2 and a desk for a laptop. We had daily breakfasts included, which were exceptional. Great choice of breakfasts and such huge serves you didn't require lunch! The rooftop bar has the best 360Β° view of Darwin and surrounds. Perfect to watch that beautiful sunset. Free nibbles are provided between 4-6pm and, again, very generous selection and portions. No need for that entree in the evening. What really made our stay outstanding though was the staff. From the helpful reception staff, the night manager, Cafe and bar staff, through to the cleaners - absolutely nothing was too much for them. If we are ever back in Darwin, we would definitely stay here again. …

Apartments were spacious, maybe recently renovated and well equiped. Nice pool and roof top eating and drinking area. Well located but out of the rush and bustle. Breakfast arrangements would benefit from having a buffet but the coffee was good. Lots of guests and everyone were in good spirits

This accomodation was great, location was fantastic, close to the waterfront precinct and plenty of E scooters waiting at front to conveniently get off out and about to explore. Rooms were clean and comfortable, view was fantastic with facilities all amazing. The rooftop bar was amazing with generous nibbles to pick at with your drinks. View and set up on Zen rooftop bar was outstanding.

Amazing stay at Zen apartments. They let us into our room early morning we’ll before check in time. The room was clean and well appointed. Views over the harbour were spectacular! Drinks in the bar lovely with complimentary nibbles and sunset views to die for. Just a short walk to the waterfront or into the city, but we used the e- scooters parked out front of the hotel regularly. We used the pool regularly and there were always lounge chairs available. Pool was beautiful and refreshing with amazing harbour views. We checked out after 8 days and went home, realising we had left clothes in the dryer. Staff kindly found them and sent them to our home. Couldn’t speak higher of the staff at Ramada. Thanks again- you made the trip of a lifetime even better!

This accommodation ticks all the boxes. The rooms are great, very clean with beautiful views. The Zen bar was the best place to spend the early evening. The Zen margarita was the go to drink while watching the sun go down- stunning! To top it off
