This is the first time I have stayed here. I flew in from down south, with an early morning flight to regional the next day. I was picked up by the courtesy bus, friendly and efficient. Check-in was all of 3 minutes, I was handed my reward card, a complimentary drinks voucher and an upgrade. The service was so professional... More

The Location of the Resort was perfect, across the road from the Airport where I was working. Having said that the staff were extremely friendly, the food in the restaurant was very good. Hot breakfast buffet style and everything you could ask for. I did ask if it was possible to fry a few eggs and not only was it... More

My son and I stayed here one night. The pool area and entrance looks great but the rooms will remind you of a standard motel. The beds were comfortable enough and its apparent they have tried to spruce up the rooms but they look very basic. The bathrooms are very tired and not to hotel standard. It's overpriced for what...

The Rydges Darwin Airport Resort has the potential to be excellent. It is fairly centrally located within the greater Darwin area and very close tot he airport itself. We did not have any problems with noise. The grounds and pool are great but the restaurant is a bit expensive when Darwin has such great places to eat. However the actual... More

I have only rated very good for the grounds, pool area, bar and staff. The room we were given was probably the most standard and basic available even though they were nowhere near full. We didn't book this ourselves so It would have been nice to be given a better position and perhaps even offered an upgrade for a small... More

Overall in comparison to other Rydges properties it compares poorly. I would say it is more like an overpriced motel or similar. The grounds are lovely and the staff are very helpful and also very nice but the rooms are very tired and certainly not 'luxurious' or what I would call 4 stars by a long shot. I thought maybe...

Great place for a one night stopover on the way to somewhere else. Could be improved by some decent lighting in the rooms. Our coverlet stank of sweat from a previous bogan type, but management changed that for us. The tv remote won't change channels, but then neither do the buttons on the tv do it either. I think a...

We've stayed at this hotel on 10+ occasions over the last 3 years. Very handy if you have an early morning flight out or arrival. We always stay in one of the bungalows. They are great & have a parking spot right beside your bungalow if you have a car. Showers are awesome.....just what you need after a long flight.... More

Most people stay here because they missed their flight so the airline has to put them somewhere.... Staff is not rude but not very helpful at all and cannot provide the answer to most basic of queries.... Facilities are bare minimum

We spent few nights in this resort and we were really satisfied. The hotel has a very nice reception and lobby area and nice swimming pool. Breakfast are in an australian way :-) I had a double burger in the bar and it was a fair burger. i would recommend it. The only thing that the hotel needs is more... More
