Janice F. Couples - 16/07/2017
« Janice Figge »

We were upgraded to a junior suite with a view of the harbor which we enjoyed. We had the unfortunate experience of leaving a backpack on a taxi and your Irish receptionist was very helpful in telephoning the taxi company and showing her concern. We appreciated that. The bag was eventually returned but the cash and telephone missing. We stayed 2 nights and aside from the above incident enjoyed our stay.

« Mr James Garsden »

The staff were very friendly and helpful; the situation was good for sightseeing, the room was clean and spacious and the hotel facilities excellent. The only negative thing was that as an 84-year-old I found it unsatisfactory having the shower over the bath, and having to get in and out of the bath to shower - also I found the bottom of the bath a bit slippery so had to put a towel there to ensure I didn't slip over.

« A home away from home, with extras »

I can't fault my experience at the Novotel, it was always a pleasure returning to the comfortable and spacious rooms after a full day out exploring. The location was excellent. The breakfast was always fresh and varied, and the dinner menu was a welcome relief when too tired to dine out. The staff were very accomodating and friendly. The only observation i made that surprised me was how the coffee cups were just rinsed in the bathroom basin instead of being washed properly or taken away and replaced by new clean ones. overall i would stay here again

« Good room in great location »

Very happy with our room, it accommodated my family well. The location was perfect. Breakfast was a good standard and the dining area was relaxed and had a pleasant outlook. We had a hire car and occasionally could not get a parking spot, so maybe provision of extra parking would be nice (perhaps a voucher for street parking). Novotel complemented a great holiday. Thank you.

« Good hotel in Darwin CBD »

I stayed in this hotel on my way to Bali recently. I have stayed here previously when it was known at Novotel Atrium. The rooms are clean and of sufficient size. Breakfast was a highlight. A good selection of food which was very tasty. Staff always willing to assist. An enjoyable stay.

« Friendly helpful staff »

Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit tired and I found it weird that when you enter the suite you have to walk through the bedroom to get to the living area. But otherwise very comfortable.

Pleasant staff, good meals, disappointed there was only one chair in the room.

« I felt well taken care of at Novotel »

Apart from the fact that my name is Julie and the name Joy appears on everything despite correcting my name on a number of occasions, my short stay was a happy one.

« Tired »

The staff were good. The hotel bar has the same chairs as when I stayed in the 90's. I don't feel they have been reupholstered in that time. The pool area was so disappointing- being a hot climate I feel the pool should be the jewel of the hotel. The rooms were ok. We were in 113. It was very small for two bedroom apartment. The second bedroom door could not fully open as it hit the bed. The tiny balcony looked out onto a block of very run down units and a block car park. It would have been terrible if we had planned to relax in our room for any length of time. Buffet breakfast at $29 was expensive especially with Machine coffee. A good location and ok price are some of the only positives about the hotel.

« Faith Restored »

Having had a much less than satisfactory experience at the Novotel in Adelaide, I was a little concerned when I realised I had booked into the same chain for my holiday in Darwin. My experience in Darwin restored my faith in the chain and whilst I will never stop at the Adelaide site again, I would be confident in booking into an Accor Hotel in future.

« Disapointing. Hotel room bad  »

Aircon in room did not work. The fans needs repair or replacement. This hotel should not be a Novotel.I complained in the morning and was told to wait for maintenance person. I waited 20 min and then had to leave to go to work.

Ryan M. Business - 10/07/2017

In general stay was enjoyable, however the air conditioning unit is noisy. The bathroom could do with a refurbishment to make it more modernised.

« Great hotel in Darwin »

A lovely hotel which served ifs purpose for my stay in Darwin. Centrally located, it allowed for me to explore the inner city on foot and was close to food and attractions. I had a room overlooking the water which added to my time in Darwin

« Very average compared to other Novotels. »

Upon checkin there was over half our wait. The room was not cleaned properly. Found "bugs in the fridge". The toilet leaked. The service was friendly but not really professional. Mens uniforms were not ironed. The room was ok. Similar colours and lay out to others etc. Breakfast was busy and tables not cleared quickly. Overall not really a nice stay compared to the other Novotels I have stayed at and I am a platinum member.

« Staff were lovely but room had annoying issues which affected the overall experience  »

The aircon in the room did not work properly and room did not have tv remote for one of the tv's. Staff were great and tried to resolve by sending technician but the issues were not resolved.
