My two teenage sons and I stayed here recently. It was what we needed no more no less. We would all stay here again although the rooms are in need of refurbishment. The best for us would have to be Essence Grill the food was absolutely amazing! The staff were really friendly our favourite by far was Ethan! Breakfast was... More

Arriving late into Darwin from Brisbane with many others on the same flight. Hotel reception very courteous and helpful. What a pity the rooms are so tired and dated .No free WiFi . Great courtesy bus service from airport quick and friendly. Had hoped to purchase a drink and late night snack again nothing but the usual machines available

Had a night after a long flight and was happy with the room and facilities. We had a family room for just the 2 of us so there was lots of room and parking out front. Easy access to the restaurant and pool and beds were comfortable. My only concern staying here would be to make sure you DONT have... More

I've stayed here a few times now and the studio rooms are pokey and looking rather tired these days. On the plus side the restaurant prepares nice dinner meals (but an unexpectedly substandard breakfast buffet) and they have a decent resort pool.

Convenient to airport, Shuttle service excellent, reception staff very professional and friendly. However given a room for our 3 night stay right at the back of the resort , with a long walk to all areas. Resort was not very full and we had booked early so was surprised at the room offered. As previous reviewers have pointed out, when... More

A great spot to base yourself when visiting Darwin. We had hired a car to get around, and the hotel is only 10mins drive from the city centre, and Casuarina Shopping Centre is just down the road to collect supplies. We stayed in a Resort Suite which had a kitchenette with full-size fridge and a table for 4, with a... More

If you want to enjoy the resort location make certain you pick your room carefully. The Resort is very handy to the airport, the room was clean and ok but was in a back building with the only window overlooking a passageway between another back building, plus a long walk to the pool. Poor value for the cost.

We travelled to Darwin to commence a journey on one of Australia's icon railways, The Ghan. We were only staying Darwin for 2 nights, so Rydges was convenient being in the grounds of Darwin Airport. We had booked a basic romm with queen sie bed. On arrival, we were upgraded to a cabin, which faced onto an adjoining bush area... More

We have stayed at this resort on numerous occasions during the past 10 years or so. The cabins provide privacy, a little deck, some outdoor space, basic food preparation and more room than a hotel or motel. There is an onsite laundry and the pool area is really lovely. However, having changed hands a few times, the place has started... More
