Upon arrival you are greater by a lovely open foyer and view over the inviting pool area. Whilst checking in the staff didn't make you feel welcome or unwelcome just a bit of service as usual. To get to your room you have to walk to green walkways but when entering the room areas its rather concrete and un-green. The... More

We stayed at this hotel after getting off a plane at midnight in Darwin. It is okay but it has a few negatives. The restaurant closes at ten and the only other place to get something to eat is at the coffee shop back at the airport. Likewise the bar. The standard rooms don't have a minibar. The hotel also...

In this disappointing northern Australian town, there is not a single decent hotel. I toured them all - frustrating. For my one-night stopover I finally drove back to the airport and stayed at the Rydges, which I normally would never have considered. At least a bit of atmosphere around the pool. Glad to be gone from this town quckly.

Rydges airport resort is our go to hotel when passing through Darwin (which happens a lot). The free pickup service from the airport is handy and generally quick (although we have had the odd occasion where we've waited 20 mins to then have the bus drive straight past us, even though we were standing at the pickup point). Check in... More

My friend stayed overnight for his early morning flight to Asia. I was asked to dine with him to their restaurant, when we ordered our meal seems impressive in the menu but when it arrived appeared so basic but a little pricy. Their accommodating staff was excellent, he asked to cooked a plate of chips to add flavour for his... More

Having been a Rydges member for many years, this hotel seemed a good option for a one night stay on a stopover after returning from overseas. Our booking was for a Superior Queen room. For some reason we were allocated a disabled room. As our arrival was after midnight, we decided that sleep was more important than moving to another... More

Loved this room, the king sized bed was awesome - the most comfy bed I have ever slept in! Very spacious rooms, spa was a good size and shower was huge! Will most definitely book this room again in future.

We stayed just one night to be close to the airport before an early morning flight and boy were we close. We were able to return our rental car early and just walk back 5 minutes from airport to the resort. There is a Rydges Hotel right next door so check out the prices there as well if you are... More

So we were put up here by Virgin after our flight was cancelled so I will be honest we didn't pay for it. We had food vouchers ($50 each) and a free bed for the night. The staff were warm and welcoming and helped get us settled in. We didnt really have chance to use the pool but the reception... More

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.
