We went to this beautiful resort for a meal while staying in Darwin before flying home. The restaurant overlooks the pool area. You can eat either inside or outside. We were welcomed when we arrived. We were not sure if we could come in off the street and use the restaurant but was reassured by the staff member who greeted...

Flights into Darwin always seem to be in the middle of the night! So I booked a hotel right there at the airport for the first night so we could just catch some z's before starting our adventure. As instructed, I called when we were ready for the shuttle collection and was told to wait on the footpath, and that...

Reception and check in was quick and easy and staff were friendly . We had a two bedroom apartment and it was OK, clean and tidy. The restaurant is a Chinese restaurant, the...

Close to airport, free shuttle is great! Yes, it needs some TLC, no question. But value for money, it deserved 4 of 5. Swimming pool is nice. The chinese restaurant on site is nice, with lots of traditional & popular dishes. Definitely nothing fancy about this hotel, but worth the money and convenient for 1 or 2 nights next to...

In need of an refurbishment . . . very tired looking rooms. Beds were lumpy and bumpy, pillow menu needs a revamp and aircon was ordinary. Wouldn't take much for Novotel to do this hotel up and have it looking really classy again. **Location is great, with only a 5 minute walk to airport terminals and Novotel, and it's sister...

The whole Darwin experience was excellent. We would defiantly go back for another break. The open spaces and the way Darwin is laid out made it very easy to get around. We found the location of the Novotel Darwin Airport very conviniant.
