Clean and well appointed room. Free breakfast and an excellent bar/lounge. The manager, Helen, is lovely and a great representative for your organization. All of the personnel were helpful and cheerful. As a side note they have a live crocodile exhibit one block away. If you are visiting Darwin I would highly recommend staying at the aNovotel on in downtown Darwin.

Ian Business - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

While I enjoyed all the benefits of being a member and feel very comfortable staying at the Novotel, I was taken aback on my arrival late in the evening to learn (once I had unpacked and relaxed) that there was no room service over the Dry. I had never heard this before and it it was unexpected. It meant having to ready myself to go out again and that was the last thing I felt like doing after travelling and working all day. It is not diabolical but a bit more of a heads up would be helpful.

Novotel is my “go to” hotel in Darwin! I travel frequently and prefer staying with you than any of the other hotels. Great location! Easy parking access. Rooms are clean but outdated - it would be great for them to have a make over. Bar is great to catch up with colleagues. I’ve never eaten in the restaurant- there are way to many other good restaurants and cafes around.

Dear Olivia, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Darwin CBD. Your comments about the age of the building are duly noted. We recently completed a full refurbishment of the Lobby area and installed new TVs in guest rooms and still on the process of organising a soft refurbishment with all our guest rooms. I am glad that you enjoyed our central location. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

Anonymous Business - 22/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Customer service was excellent (as always) - actually better than other Accor properties I have stayed at include Sofitel branded properties. The receptionist and bar staff went beyond courteously professional to genuinely friendly. Made me come back for another drink! The bathroom tiles could do with an update (I know it’s expensive), but they have a 1970s camping shower block feel to them- thought I should be wearing thongs (jk). Parking arrangements are not great - especially since I paid $10 a night and there weren’t any parks, and going out to get the receptionist to let me in and out of the parking garage next door didn’t work at peak periods . Some highlights, but some room for improvement.

Good Spot on the Waterfront

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Paul S. G. Solo - 22/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Pleasant, laidback vibe at this hotel along the shoreline in the Central Business District in Darwin. Its atrium design and architecture points to a hotel from another era - which was interesting to see and experience as lots of hotels now are cookie-cutter and boring. The room was large and even though it did not have a balcony where I could sit and watch the sunset, it did have a little enclosed nook where I could do the same. Did not opt for the breakfast option as that was ridiculously expensive (which came as a surprise to me as I always try to have an in-hotel breakfast at all Accor property stays). Suman the front-office manager was polite and professional and was also the guy pouring me my pints at the lobby bar. All-in-all, a relaxing stay at this property at the Top End of Australia.

The Novotel is consistent with respect to good Friendly service. My only comment is that the bathrooms are overdue for an upgrade. Be great just to have a walk in shower (as opposed to in the bath). My only other gripe is that the bar fridges seem to struggle to get drinks cold. Great location.
