The hotel smells dank -I know its wet season but I have stayed here pre-covid in wet season and it was fine. The obvious zero spend on maintenance is a shame - I used to like staying here but I think covid has taken its toll. 2 star at best.

Right on there Esplanade so it’s a pleasant place to take a bit of a walk from after a day cooped up in air conditioning. Also just around the corner from Mitchell Street where you’ll find all manner of eateries from pubs to restaurants.
Good location, but run down
scottjmiller747 24/11/2020 TripAdvisor review
Hotel was ok, but very old and univiting for what I think of Novotel. Bathroom was moldy, paint peeling and old. The rooms are of good size, but need a good update like the hotel. The staff were nice and helpful. Parking is a problem.

As an Accor Plus Loyalty Gold member, and a local, my family and I often stay at this hotel for short getaways in the city. This time we were in a 2 bedroom apartment, which we have stayed in before. We have noticed over recent stays that the hotel appears to be being run down and maintenance is not a priority for the owners of the property. Having had a few minor & not so minor issues previously, from faulty TVs, to no hot water, this time was a little extra disappointing, for the following reasons: 1. The air conditioner in the main bedroom didn't work at all (Darwin, November, build up to the wet season); 2. The air conditioner in the main area had a persistent rattling noise for the whole stay; 3. There was almost no cold water pressure in the bathroom; 4. the I hope the hotel, and perhaps Accor/Novotel conducts a review soon and seeks to improve its produ seal on the pipe out the back of the toilet leaked every time you flushed; The toilet cistern was coming away from the wall; 5. The in room safe didn't work; and 6. The mattress in the main room sagged in the middle, so my wife and I would constantly roll into each other throughout the night. As we have always maintained, and one of the reasons we still come back to the hotel, is that the staff are fantastic, and very friendly and helpful. Although 1 person to run reception and also attend to the needs of all the guests, is not sustainable. Your staff is by far your greatest asset, and they should be commended for the commitment. It appears the staff are doing their very best, but are receiving no support from the owners of the hotel. As the only Accor "Hotel" in the Darwin CBD, I have always tried to use the hotel for the Loyalty benefits. However, I am getting increasingly disappointed with the product. Having stayed at many Novotel Hotels around the world, I can honestly say that this one does not deserve the brand as it is currently being run. I understand that COVID19 has an impact on most businesses, and this one would be no exception, but I am not sure that it can be used as an excuse for many of these concerns, certainly not moving forward.
Never Staying Here Again
Andrew A Business - 11/11/2020 TripAdvisor review
Very very old and tired. Room was dirty with ants in the bathroom. The bed was ok which was the saving grace. TV would not turn off air conditioner was old and tired so had to rely on the ceiling fan to keep cool! Staff unhelpful and not interested. Will never stay here again!
