On 21/3/17 we had to cancelled 1 night at this hotel as we had problems with our flight from Sydney to Darwin. I reported the hotel and lost money for 1 night, OK, it was our "fault". On 22/3/17 we arrived at Darwin Airport at midnight, saw a shuttle bearing the name Novotel Hotel was taking in passengers, we asked...

Great stay at the Novotel. Friendly staff, good breakfast & great location! Would recommend. Reasonable price for off season too. Very convenient location close to shops and right on the esplanade which had beautiful sunsets every evening

WiFi did not reach our room or the rooms of other people in our group. We had to go down to the ground floor to use WiFi. The speed is only 3 Mbps. The standard around the world is to turn valves counter-clockwise to open them, and to turn clockwise to close a valve. The hot water valves at the...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I will be discussing your comments with my Maintenance Manager especially the one regarding the turning of the hot water taps as I did not know that ours turned the wrong way. Hopefully you will give us another opportunity to serve you better in the future. Kind regards John Armstrong...

Spent 2 nights (stayed in a large group). Was definitely the cheapest of our options, and absolutely worth every dollar. Lobby staff on all 3 shifts was very helpful, and the lobby bar was kool. (didn't try the restaurant). Even the free hotel parking was convenient. The room my have been just a little dated... but who cares. It was...

Booked with the 30 day advance purchase price that included breakfast for a very good price. This hotel is in a very convenient location to the CBD right across the road from a very nice park, and importantly close to the start of parkrun. The staff were fantastically friendly and very helpful. The building is getting a little old though...

“If you can’t say anything nice – don’t say anything at all”. Well, I have plenty of nice things to say about the Novotel Darwin Atrium. Such a perfect location on The Esplanade, adjacent to Bicentennial Park with beautiful views across Lameroo Beach to Darwin Harbour. Walking distance to many city highlights including the Waterfront Precinct, Stokes Hill Wharf and...

Don't pick a 'sea view' room unless you want to waste a fair part of the evening watching the sunsets. Stunning. Very comfortable beds, our room (upgraded) more than adequate in terms of size and facilities although wifi strength varied in different parts of the room, which could,perhaps, be a nuisance for business guests. Although well cleaned, the paintwork in...

When we stayed everyone was friendly and very helpful. Being so close to the water was great and just across the road from the Novotel. The room was really spacious and clean, really enjoyed our stay and will do it again when we can.
