I stayed here on the night of Good Friday because they had an Easter offer. I joined as a Priority Guest member to receive 10% discount the room rate, and other benefits as well. I was not disappointed at the price I paid for the full breakfast we had, the late checkout at 1pm (without charge), and a beautiful pool... More

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every aspect of the resort. Great pool for the kids. The staff and customer care were impeccable along with the revamped menu and food at essence. Delicious. Keep up what your doing guys. It doesn't go unnoticed.

Arrived at Darwin Airport, rang the Rydges, checked for availability of rooms and made a booking at 12:30am Arrived at the hotel 20 minutes later. After spelling out our surname six times, SWA..., our booking was found for the wrong night. We were advised we would have to pay an additional fee for "early check in". After once again ringing...

Booked here coz of our very early flight overseas. Friendly reception and shuttle service to the airport are superb. They have shuttles to go to the CBD and shopping centre, just ask reception for schedule. Theres restaurant in the resort and the next door hotel but its quite expensive. Better off dining at a nearby shopping centre (about 6 minutes... More

(Unfortunately) I am a regular at this hotel due to poor flight connections out of Darwin. Each time I stay, I promise myself it will be the last and the most recent visit cemented by resolve.

I have reviewed Rydge's Darwin Resort in the past and was particularly critical about its very flakey internet services. As a result of that and some other issues I have been staying at another establishment for over a year. I therefore thought I'd give them another try because they are geographically much closer to where I work when in Darwin.... More
