Booked the Atrium based on other reviews on TripAdvisor and I was really pleased with the stay. I have stayed at Novotel Cairns before so I expected the same good service and quality accommodation. We (traveled with my wife) requested a quiet room and that is what we got. Stayed on fifth floor, room without a balcony, facing the city. The views are not as impressive as the beach view, however this was the quietest room I have ever stayed in (even with a number of functions on in the hotel when we stayed). The room itself was large, lounge suite, table and double. Only complaint I have is that the bathroom is too small. No bath given Darwin is not short of water is surprising. A/C is a must and ours was quiet and effective. If keen, there are new release in house movies, and fox sports was free - therefore I was of course overjoyed.
The staff were polite and helpful - not one single problem.
We booked a package including breakfast - a great continental buffet with everything you could want - probably a little pricey if you had to pay upfront. We also ate at the Zest restaurant within the hotel and the food was absolutely outstanding. Darwin food is not cheap, and we found most of it not that flash (for the price you pay), but the Zest is a real cracker. On the same floor, the Jabiru bar is a nice place to unwind.
The facade and atrium itself are most pleasant, even if dated. The pool is nice, and overall it is quite a good hotel. In another major city, this hotel would be a good 3.5-4 star hotel, however for Darwin, the Zest and breakfast make it a top notch stay. Everything is a brief walk from the hotel, important given it is so humid. We did a number of long day tours so the peace and quiet was welcome. A recommended hotel.
