We recently stayed for three days. I will start with that we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were great and you could not fault the service. The location is great as it is across the road from the esplanade and a street away from restaurants and bars. The problems are the place needs a massive renovation. The interior lobby... More

Got to the hotel yesterday and booked in as an Accor member. Treated really well and given a room upgrade. The suites 103 was good but had a couple of loose tiles as you walked into the bathroom. Everything in the room was fine. A few more choices for the minibar would have been nice.

I stayed for three nights. I was lucky enough to have my room upgraded because of maintenance in my allocated room. Unfortunately though they must have had to prepare the room in a rush because the bathroom hadn't been cleaned. It wasn't a disaster, but it just had that lived in vibe of other people's hairs on the sink and... More

The Novotel Atrium in Darwin is very rough around the edges, and seriously looking for an update and major renovation. The reception was friendly and efficient while they search to find me 'a good room'. I feel sorry for the people that are not so lucky as me. The lifts feel like they were transported in from 1970s and lovely... More

Stayed 2 nights, lovely hotel, good buffett breakfast. Loved the Atrium style, open foyer, with the hanging vines. Gave the place a cool, exotic feel. Staff very helpful, rooms clean & spacious. Located close to CBD, shops & nightlife. Right oopposite the park & harbour

Very welcoming staff who provided ideas on what to do during our stay in Darwin, convenient location - although it was a bit close to some of bars as the noise travelled especially on Darwin Cup night, The rooms were clean and spacious and good meal and bar service was available.

This hotel has a great outlook on the Esplande, but is quite dated, shabby in places and in need of a complete facelift. Staff are friendly but overworked, fulfilling many different roles that would be the role of separate people in other hotels. Breakfast buffet ok. Pool needs lots of plants around it to make it feel a relaxing space... More

I'm a Gold Accor card holder which is supposed to bring with it some complementary niceties on check in. Not only were there none (no water, no letter, no room upgrade), but I was checked into a room with filth all over a broken toilet, and the seat on the floor. It was really disappointing. So I'm given another room... More
