Novotel Darwin CBD

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Unable to use room service no phone. Requested repair nothing happened during the stay.

The hotel is in a perfect location, close to downtown, right on the water, etc. Rooms are clean and well kept. HOWEVER... the maintenance there leaves something to be desired: The toilet in our king-bed, top floor room did not flush. At all. We called downstairs and asked if someone could repair or move us, but we were told to "wait for a few hours and see if it clears itself up." Ummmm no. We were finally moved to another room with a WORKING toilet (imagine that). The phones will disconnect after about 60 seconds of use, due to poor wiring and bad infrastructure. The computer in the business center was down and would not be repaired for "a few days" according to the front desk. Naturally, Wi-Fi is NOT free. So basically, if you're a foreign traveler, good luck contacting the outside world. Hope you don't need to call/email your credit card company or anyone else for that matter! I did not buy any wi-fi access as that is probably just as unreliable as everything else!!! I will not be staying at a Novotel hotel again.

The hotel was average. I wish i would have waited to get to Darwin to get my hotel cause we could have stayed in a much better place for the same price.
