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. I lugged kids and bags up to the room only to find it was not what we booked, I was asked to go back to reception with bags to sort this, after stating the difficulties someone then brought... More

We had hoped for a special treat at the end of an adventurous holiday in Kakadu. This Novotel is clean and business like, but doesn't have anything special, other than the convenience of being close to the airport. The standard room was quite small and outdated. For more style and a far better dining setting try the other Accor hotel... More

We booked a two bedroom suite for our family to start our NT holiday. Unfortunately on checkin we were provided a single room with two double beds for our family of four with no discussion on behalf of the reception desk. When I returned to reception to explain the mistake I was made to wait until a bus load of... More

Lots of red-eye flights service Darwin airport & the Novotel offers a perfect (walkable) location to enjoy a quiet, half-night's sleep! Book directly to enjoy kids-eat-free buffet breakfast. We were given the wrong room on arrival, however the issue was easily fixed!

Good basic hotel within walking distance to the airport in Darwin. If you need a place to stay for a stopover this hotel would be a good choice. Surprisingly there is not much noise from the airport, therefore getting some sleep after a long flight is possible, too. Rooms are of a decent size, although a little dark despite a... More

For room cost 209 A$ this hotel doesn't supply internet in the room and doesn't include breakfast. Before we booked the room the receptionist told that breakfast is included in price 209 A$, next morning the other receptionist told us that it is not included and we should pay 30 A$ per person. We came at 2 AM and asked... More

Wasn't not expecting a 5 star hotel by any means but the smell when we entered the room was horrific! Funny enough the room "looked" quite OK. It was a decent looking room with a balcony but the smell was like it had been flooded and left to dry out and then they put us in there without checking it... More
