Arrived very late in hotel due to delayed flight. Room smelly. Found out in morning that it was due to pizza left in the fridge by previous customer. Also had old soap from previous customer left in the shower and old shower gel bottle under the sink. foyer very nice, the rest of the hotel feels a bit worn and... More

I stay here fairly regularly when overnighting at Darwin Airport. Pleasant walk through trees from the airport to the hotel during daylight hours, otherwise I use the shuttle. Mattresses and pillows have recently been replaced in most of the rooms and the beds are now very comfortable. Small gym on site. I usually eat at the 24/7 downstairs cafe at... More

Hotel in walking distance to airport. Compared to other novotels that I had stayed in, this one is just average. Simple rooms with cheap furniture, smelly and dirty aircon. One pillow on Queen size bed with large braun stains. Too expensive for such low standard.

Instead of 2 rooms we had only one fitting 3 instead of 5 people!?! And despite my call the baby cot was not even there!!!! Ended up in bed... More

We are in the top end and the only fresh fruit were red and green apples. Very poor. Cereals - well it was like being in... More

My friends and I got together for one night and booked the 2 bedroom suite here. The suite itself was huge, bigger than some of the units here in darwin. It has a full kitchen with utensils, cutlery, oven, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a big veranda with outdoor setting. The only problem was that I had rang the... More

This is quite a nice property. Lovely tropical setting and spacious rooms with everything you need. You might want to look elsewhere for dinner at night and breakfast if it is not included, as the restaurant is a bit expensive but the food served there is good.

Thank you for your feedback and Loong Fong definitely has a great reputation for great food. Another option is our other restaurant Essence Bar and Grill across at the Mercure our other property across the road from the Novotel. We look forward to seeing you back again soon. Cheers Jamie More

As per my last review regarding the Mercure Darwin Airport this is now a follow on at the Novotel. We were transferred across from the Mercure and told there would be no issues. When we arrived at reception the booking had not been transferred. We waited nearly half an hour before being given room 625. If you get this room,... More

With 2 children, one being a toddler, I was hopeful of some assistance when checking in. Unfortunately we did not receive any.

Dear Saldamo, I will follow up with my front office team further as check in is normally 2pm and check out at 10am however pending full occupancy we are quite flexible with this given our varying arrival times with 24 hour flights. As a father of four I am very focussed on providing assistance especially to families travelling knowing how... More
