Tired Facilities

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

MarkLaurence Business - 20/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

I stayed at this hotel about 20 years ago and can’t say it looks much different. The room was comfortable and the bed very good. The ancient TV was unreliable with poor picture quality. I found this hotel in need of modernisation. The shower recess was incredibly tiny. It was fine for one night and the location is good.

aubreyshea Couples - 18/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Australian out back adventure, that included Uluru, the Ghana, Kakadu camping, finally a rest in Darwin. Hotel stays were Accor in Uluru & Darwin. Tours were organised by hotel & most meals were in hotel restaurants.

Great location

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Michelle G Business - 16/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

The Novotel CBD is around a $35 taxi ride from the airport mid Sunday afternoon. Check in was easy. The junior suite was spacious with simple furnishings including a kitchenette if you wanted to do your own breakfast. Bed was comfy and roomy. The shower over the bath could be a issue for those who may have some mobility/flexibility issues. There was a guest laundry on the ground floor. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and catered for a diverse palette. The fire alarm went off and the exit at the rear of the pool area was not that obvious if it had been a real emergency. The carpets were a bit worn. The hotels' position to Mitchell street, eateries and the esplanade gardens made it an ideal place to stay. The front desk staff were extremely helpful with some business matters.

Disappointing

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

Nombles Family - 16/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

We were disappointed in this hotel, I expected better from a Novotel. The room was very bare, and the bathroom was just plain shabby. For the price of the room, it was appalling. The airconditioner was noisy and not very effective, unwelcome in a place like Darwin. The only nice thing was the position on the waterfront. It was pretty hot and humid in the common areas too, not a wise design for Darwin.

Great Stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Alan Couples - 15/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Check-in staff were marvellous and really helpful when we asked for some luggage to be stored a week prior to check in. This allowed us to travel 'lighter' on tour to Kakadu. On check-in, staff were very friendly and efficient, providing us with all the information needed for a comfortable stay. Restaurant served good food by very obliging and friendly staff. Great stay, nice food and a comfortable bed.

Friendly competent staff but noisy night

Sleep was disturbed as result of an incident in the park across the road - suspect to was distressing to those involved given police and emergency service that were present in the morning

Very friendly staff.

It was all that we could need. Very obliging staff - we left our luggage in the storeroom whilst out on a safari. When we returned we were upgraded and aided in the retrieval of our luggage.

Basic

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Caroline Couples - 12/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

It left a lot to be desired. We had a buzzing light in the bathroom, a bedside lamp that was not working and a ceiling that had been patched but never received its top coat of paint. Management did fix the buzzing light and did provide a partial refund for the unpainted ceiling only when we complained. As a landscape architect and horticulturalist I was attracted to this hotel because of the atrium planting. Unfortunately it left a lot to be desired as the planting was very sparse and lacked understorey planting and therefore did not have a desirable lush tropical effect.

Great location. No fuss. Tidy rooms

Your hotel was a pretty good. Thought I had bed bugs but turned out to be midges and your staff were very helpful to assist me.

Aubrey S. Couples - 12/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Enjoyable with a great head chef. Sadly the bathroom was dated & tired, as was the balcony albeit a fabulous view. The mini bar had nothing stocked, not even water.

Perfect position and has a happy hour!

B H. Couples - 12/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Thank you, we enjoyed our stay. Great situation for finding restaurants, red bus, and our way around. Close to centre of town and village area. Breakfast was very substantial and staff were very cordial.

Excellent

Steven Business - 12/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

It was a very brief stay but was absolutely happy with the experience. I arrived around 2am and was immediately checked in and went straight to my room for some much needed, uninterrupted, sleep.

Enjoyable

Staff members remembered me from a previous stay and that was lovely to be knowledge. The breakfast staff member even remembered how I like my coffee. Excellent service.

Comfortable stay but some serious shortcomings

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Chris D. S. Couples - 12/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The location of the hotel is superb but it is in need of an upgrade. We had a junior suite with a queen bed. The room was large and had great views over the esplanade to the cenotaph. However, the mattress sagged on one side making it impossible for 2 people to sleep in it. We ended up getting a rollaway bed which took away the additional space the suite provided. The bath tub was chipped and the flush buttons on the toilet were discoloured. Whilst this did not cause us any discomfort, it is was not what we have come to expect from Novotel. We had breakfast on 2 mornings and although the range was not extensive, the breakfast was good. Unfortunately, the toasters overloaded the power board they were plugged into resulting in the toasters cutting off every few minutes. This was rectified in the second day. The late checkout was very much appreciated as we had a late flight.

Great Accommodation Close to the CBD

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

juneez01 Couples - 12/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Novotel Darwin CBD is within close walking distance to restaurants and shopping. It's in a great location with a wonderful view out to the bay on the Esplanade. Rooms are clean and tidy, staff are friendly and efficient, facilities are fantastic. Highly recommended.
