A magnificent indoor tropical rainforest is a stunning feature of the Novotel Darwin Atrium. Overlooking Darwin Harbour, the city location provides an easy ten minute walk to Darwin's World War 2 Tunnels and the new Wharf Precinct. If the Novotel's tropical gardens whet your appetite for more, the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens are just a leisurely three kilometre stroll away.

Location
Mitchell Street's restaurant and nightlife strip are at your fingertips from the Novotel Darwin Atrium's city location. A two minute walk puts you in the heart of Darwin's souvenir and aboriginal art shopping precinct in Smith Street Mall and the Novotel is just a 12 minute drive from Darwin International Airport.

Rooms
The Novotel boasts 140 modern rooms including suites and kitchenette apartments. All rooms feature air-conditioning, mini bar and satellite TV.

Restaurant
Zest Restaurant and Terrace offers Australian cuisine and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Considered the cocktail capital of Darwin, the Jabiru Bar is contemporary and intimate and open daily from 2pm.

General
Guest amenities at the Novotel Darwin Atrium include currency exchange services, a gift shop and an outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi, the perfect spot to unwind after a busy day of sight-seeing. Why not complete the day with dinner and a show at the Darwin Entertainment Centre, just a few metres down the road.

I have stayed at a majority of the hotels in Darwin city and I was disappointed at this hotel. The rooms were not what i expected. i couldn't understand why the bed was the first thing you see when u walk into the room and then the lounge room was at the back of the room. they are over priced for the rooms. the rooms were not very clean. the whole place needs to be renovated. Fantastic location though

Stayed for 8 nights.wanted great view over harbour and got it.you need to specify,though.better if you can book a way in advance,if possible.lower floor rooms can be obstructed by trees.If view not an issue,the location is perfect.within a couple of minutes of centre of entertainment and restaurant hub.hotel is having a facelift,but it it is being done quietly,without causing any imposition.Some front desk staff somewhat aloof.I had a problem with my booking(not my fault) which was resolved,though I had to be firm to get a result.Our room was comfortable and clean.we had a couple of problems with doors not closing properly,the only complaint.Oh,and what was lacking was a decent small table and chairs to take advantage of the window view.A large lounge and coffee table not being suitable.And a microwave would be great.All up,a great stay and would recommend highly.

The room wasnt ready and wasnt very clean. Still old soap in the shower. No parking available after they took a deposit of $100 for a parking pass. Told it will take a week to be refunded....

Reception staff very helpful and very pleasant. Helped with our bookings /flight check ins as there guest internet was not available. Room was very roomy but smelt slightly damp but as we were in a tropical area thought this to be acceptable. Wonderful view over the Darwin waterfront No service at the pool bar area as only one bar person. We had to go to the front bar which was a little annoying when you are wet and wearing bathers. Great location, could walk to lot of the attractions. Very resonable rate so we were happy.

Nice accomodation. Make sure you ask for the beach front because by default they put you in the back which is second rate. It's the same price. It's dated now and really needs to be properly renovated, they have only done the bare minimum reno in the rooms and a real shame they kept the 20 year old curtains, as it let the room down.

Very nice stay. Food and room great, only small complaint, water flooded the bathroom every time you had a shower, very hard to contain with the shower curtain!

The place smelt of mould, the rooms were mouldy from the lampshade to the chairs to the curtains. We were put in a room that the floor was wet as well as everything else because the air con didn't work. If you turned down the aircon at night - so you weren't freezing during your sleep - the room turned wet!! Very disappointed. The staff weren't helpfull. Good location though!! Bulldoze the old place and put a new one there and it would be perfect.

Novotel Atrium is an especially peaceful Hotel for weary travellers it is in a lovely quiet, safe area on the Esplanade in Darwin overlooking the water. I arrived without my own transport, I am a senior person and found most things were in walking distance for me. My room was pleasant and not cramped.

Staff were all very helpful and had a great attitude to make us feel welcome. The rooms were extremely comfortable and relaxing, and we particularly liked the view. Close to the clubs and restaurants made it ideal for us. Great!!!

I found the service from the front desk at both check ins to be exemplary. However, room 518 had a faulty clock radio and even though I left the "faulty device" card out it was ignored. Also, the condition of the shower in 518 was a bit rough. On the other hand the 4th floor room was excellent. Had a problem with the TV(s) apparently being volume limited. Could not hear the cricket commentary easily.

My husband and I used this hotel as a base from which to take tours to Litchfield, Katherine, Kakadu and the Coburg Peninsula. The rooms were large, although the bathrooms were a little small. The staff were very helpful and the reception desk was manned 24/7. We ate breakfast in the Zest restaurant twice. It was $20 ea for a continental breakfast which was very basic. The second time we ate there they had no meats or croissants but offered bacon from the hot buffet. The airconditioning in one of the rooms cut in and out and disrupted our sleep on the one night we were there. The hotel is in a great location on the Esplanade, very close to Mitchell St where the bars and restaurants are. We would stay here again.

Very good overall, located right on seafront. No balcony though, and not much of a view out of the window.Having said that, it is so muggy in the wet season, perhaps we would not have used it anyway.Staff friendly, bar prices were at times expensive.Nice pool, room clean and functional.Wpuld stay again.

Excellent location, very short walk to heaps of pubs, cafes etc. Staff were very friendly. We were in Darwin for business and personal reasons, this hotel provided everything we wanted. The room was very quiet, we didn't hear a sound from our room

Novotel is an average hotel but better than many 3 stars. Good lobby bar, that's all. Ok located in the city, which is not hard as it is small. Service is fine. Rooms are clean.

I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel, much nicer than I had expected as Novotels are often very basic. The hotel is very attractive with a lovely pool and in a super position albeit that there is not a great deal to do in Darwin itself. The restaurant served some good food too. I had a standard room but it contained everything I needed. Ten out of ten.
