Always stay here when passing through with work. Resort has nice pool area which is next to the restaurant/bar so a good place to sit down at & relax while having a cold drink or meal. Rooms are ok. Very handy to airport & the hotel runs a frequent shuttle to & from the airport to the resort.

Arriving at the airport at 1.00am from Melbourne we were looking for a comfy bed. The hotel is in the airport precinct with a complimentary shuttle that took us to the door. Check-in was uncomplicated and the bed and room very clean and comfortable. We opted for a cooked breakfast which was very nice but not cheap.

Let me start this review by saying that Rydges have returned our money for our one night stay and I wasn't going to review them at all but I feel I need to warn other travelers to choose carefully if you want to stay here. We had the room for 8 hours prior to a late night flight and we... More

Stayed for 4 nights on business trip. Check in very smooth and friendly staff. Room a bit disappointing. Had a resort suite with separate living room with kitchenette. Room was extremely dark with very poor lighting and the bathroom so badly lit you could barely see yourself in the mirror. Even with the curtains open and all the lights on... More

We were put up at Rydges for a night after our flight was cancelled. It was an easy check in and our room was extremely clean & comfortable, though a little on the small side. For one night, it was perfect. Large bar fridge, good selection on the TV (including foxtel movies), good hot shower & air con. The pool... More

Stayed here overnight in between flights a couple of times. Good shuttle service from the airport although it can take a while to get to you and as it's a relatively short walk, that can be quicker! Shuttle also picks up/drops off at the small charter terminals around Darwin airport too which is pretty handy and does regular trips into... More

The only problem that you could have with this resort is its location - next to the airport is a mixed blessing at best. We got around this by going into Darwin Scooter Hire and hiring a pair of 300s for the week. The ride into and out of Darwin became a joy rather than an obstacle. The poolside bungalows... More

I arrived at this hotel at 11pm in the middle of a power cut! The staff were all doing a great job at making the best of the situation. I was helped to my room, offered water & energy drinks (as of course the air conditioning wasn't working and it was 32oC outside). The power finally came on at 4am!... More

We stayed for an overnight... the resort property is very nice. It looks like a true resort. The rooms on the other hand! First there are no elevators, at least for the building we stayed in. And the room was not what I am use to at the Rydges. I stayed at the Rydges Sydney airport and it was lovely... More

I often travel to Darwin in my Company's role as State Manager for the Northern Territory and I always stay at the Rydges Darwin Airport Resort and would highly recommend a stay there. The Reception staff are always friendly, as are all of the staff - The Bar staff, The Restaurant staff and the ladies & gents from room services... More
