I would like to take this opportunity to defend my city accommodation and respond to the accusations made below by the guest, Claire Bradshaw
My rate is $130 per night ($140 on Friday & Saturday nights) Certainly not the rate Claire mentions, she is incorrect. Within this complex there are many privately operated rooms.
When researching accommodation pre holiday, all guests have the freedom to choose a hotel room in the same or similar complex .
Please see my other reviews for the same CBD Studio. All guests have been very happy. The personal opinion of one guest does not accurately reflect my accommodation.
FACT: A Studio is technically a self contained room with bed, eating and living all contained within, regardless of size. At no time in the description of my accommodation do I suggest it is a home away from home. It is right in the middle of the CBD of Darwin, located at the bottom back of the complex right next to the pool
Following Claire's scathing review I can only say.... Claire, ALL accommodation is a business opportunity, even a bedroom in a share home advertised on Airbnb. That is why Airbnb has been so successful. It offers the Host the opportunity to create income from rooms/house/apartment/boat/caravan/shed/ whatever.
So please think in future before you denigrate a Host and their accommodation. We are all doing this in good faith.
