“Christmas in Darwin 2012”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Darwin is not a place I would recommend for families. Apart from crocodilus cove and Aquascene there isn't a lot to do. The fighting and abuse of alchohol amongst the aborogines is out of control and made us feel unsafe and uncomfortable. I would however recommend The Novotel Atrium as they cater well for families. The rooms were of average standard, but the catering was excellent thanks to the executive chef Sharyn and her hardworking friendly kitchen team! No request was ever too much and Sharyn was always happy to look after us! Other chefs would be hard pressed to measure up to the service Sharyn provided! Gavin on front desk was also exceptionally helpful and friendly. Always enquiring how our holiday was going and offering helpful suggestions and information, he made us feel so welcome and comfortable. I would highly recommend Gavin to any prospective organisation and promotion!

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

Staff friendliness wasn't a feature; the service in the restaurant was appalling - staff couldn't have been less interested. However, the room was lovely & clean. Unfortunately pillows on the pillow menu weren't available and the pillows provided were very soft and low.
Great location
