No water provided in rooms - in a city as hot as Darwin, and with many people coming straight off planes to the hotel, I would have thought this was essential.

Had everything we needed for a short stay. Reception allowed us to check in at 2:30am when our flight landed, however we were awoken by construction commencing outside pretty early. The shower pressure was very average. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

A lovely clean and simple room. Directions to property by foot during current construction period would have been appreciated as needed a bit of problem solving at 2.30am to get there, but otherwise lovely!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Nice and close to Darwin Airport (walking distance). The accommodation is very basic but fine for an overnight layover. The only issue is the lack of dining options or room service if you fly in late. While the Novotel isn't terrible, for similar money I would recommend staying next door at the Mercure as it has less of a sterile hotel feel about it and is more like a resort.
