« Good location, tired hotel »

We had a 2bed apartment. Good location, great the idea of an apartment rather than a room as it is much more flexible for our family. Very tired looking hotel though and no power points in the twin bedroom!!

« A great hotel. A little tired in the bathroom. »

A great stay. Had a fire alarm go off early one morning which wasn't ideal. The staff was lovely. Very helpful.

« generally very good - there was considerable delay in getting service at reception on one occasion »

Room was excellent, and the breakfast was great. There was some confusion regarding whether we should actually receive free breakfast because we had booked through a travel agent. It would be good if this situation could be sorted out, so that it didn't cause confusion for both customer and staff.

« Enjoyable Stay »

Novotel Darwin CBD is an older hotel which looks a bit ''tired'' in places. However we did enjoy our stay. All the staff are friendly, very helpful and efficient. We ate breakfast in the hotel and the quality and variety of the food was good. The rooms are very spacious. The bathroom could probably do with a bit of a facelift. Good location. Overall pretty good.

« Short break »

I was disappointed booking and paying for a Junior suite to find the there was not an enclosed room, but simply a partly separated main room by a bathroom. .My sisters standard room a few doors down was of similar size.

« Satisfactory »

Location was lovely, check in staff friendly. The bar was left unattended numerous times and we were needing to wait to be served. The food at dinner was not the greatest. We had to be moved rooms, after our aircon was noisy. Our second room I felt we were in a worse room, although we were higher up we were facing the city and not the ocean where we were previously.

« Average »

Not happy with shower in room. Very poor water pressure and on two occasions, one in the morning and one in the evening there was no hot water. Bed quite average.

« Very pleasent,and comfortable. »

Our stay was comfortable, bed very good, room clean, staff obliging all the time. We had a problem with the safe, attended to straight away, when going out staff rang taxi's for us, nothing a problem to them. My birthday on my arrival day, we received a bottle of wine on ice and two singing staff members so thoughtful. Enjoyed our stay thank you.

« Most satisfied for what we needed; a utilitarian reasonably priced hotel without unnecessary frills but which would transit us into a week-long hardship trek and then transit us back into civilization after the tour. »

Perfectly fine;it allowed us to prepare and refresh after our trip from Sydney. And then after a week's tour in the Kimberley, we returned for 2 nightsto reengage with civilization

« Friendly staff but very tired building »

Every engagement with staff was very positive. The communal space and water fall through the centre of the building is lovely. The rooms are very tired. All electrical appliances are VERY over due for testing and tagging, with most listing a next test date due in 2016. Sticker on Microwave says next leakage test also due in 2016 - doesn't instil much confidence in the products provided. When we arrived, there were dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. Reported and quickly fixed, but little things make a big impact.

Paul Couples - 11/09/2017
« A little above average »

A reasonable stay in a little dated hotel. Definitely in need of a touch of paint. Water pressure in the shower was sad and the bath was stained with a "tidal" water mark. Relaxing on the bed was the only option as the couch was not welcoming to say the least. Unfortunately the outside communal spa was not working and there were no signs alerting anyone to the fact. Our barramundi main course at dinner was delightful and the staff were helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. Dessert (pannacotta) was totally inedible and could be likened to a rubber mat with an obvious double dose of gelatin and a crumb that was akin to cherry stones. The other dessert (caramel tart) was a premade, commercial flan case filled with a premade, commercial caramel filling. Sad. Very sad. All staff were friendly and helpful. We had no trouble with parking at the rear and the location is very handy.

« OK but a hotel that is past its prime »

Air con system was unbearably noisy (return air duct). This must have been obvious to anyone servicing the room. Off button on control did not switch it off - I found a broken button on the unit that did.

« A little outdated »

The air-conditioning in the rooms really struggled. I changed rooms and it was only slightly better. It was cooler outside my room and in the restaurant. I have stayed in other hotels in Darwin and never had any issues.
