It may call itself a Novotel, but it bears little resemblance to any others in the international chain. It is a very (very) basic motel. The photos on their site are very flattering- imagine that they were taken some time ago! ‘Tired’ doesn’t come close. And it is massively over priced.

Good points: the staff are very helpful and apologetic. The swimming pool is inviting- but the poolside bar wasn’t open (not at the weekend). Food was available at the Mercure next door- and was fine, as was the Mercure pool. Everything was clean (except the outside of the window on which ants had built a nest). It’s an easy stroll with a suitcase from the airport.

Surroundings: being redeveloped, dust everywhere, visually similar to trench warfare. Potentially, two years, worth a visit

Really angry that it wasn’t made clear how poor the hotel was.
Date of stay: March 2023

Reviewed 27 January 2023 via mobile

Staff are all so lovely and therefore I rate them 5/5. It’s a construction site though. Just awful. Nothing was open so we were asked to go next door to Mercure hotel to eat 26 Jan. car has to be parked over the road in a special compound. It’s just not pleasant.

Room tip: Wait a year til it’s finished

My room was very small and basic and the window would not open so it was stuffy and had a cleaning product smell. The hotel is currently undergoing construction. The restaurant is closed on the weekends. The pool was lovely, the staff are efficient and the shuttle bus to the airport is a great service. Next time I would stay in a balcony room on a week day.

A very good experience. The check in staff were very efficient. The 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and functional with a very good kitchen. A balcony provides a good outdoor option with views over Darwin. The pool area is very nice and good to enjoy a meal in this area.

Reviewed 8 September 2022

The hotel needs a major overall and update and it appears that this might be happening as on the outside there is a lot of construction. We are Accor members and reception upgraded us to a 2-bedroom suite on both occasions which was wonderful.
A number of things in the room need to be looked into by management, the couch is very uncomfortable, and the fridge needs to be repaired as nothing good be stored in the door.

The restaurant food was OK but again the menu was limited. The location was excellent and the staff wonderful.
