Not good !!

Great location for airport but thats about it. Our room absolutely stunk, had shocking reception on television (couldn't watch it) and tried ringing reception staff to get put through to restaurant to order dinner ( approx 10 times ) and no-one answered. Had to go down and put in order. Whilst there checked to see if reception was busy to understand why they didnt answer my calls. But no-one around , even behind the reception desk , no staff member at all. Would recommend to stay across the road at Rydges Resort. Lovely atmosphere and great restaurant.

Beware of "free" internet

Chose this hotel for proximity to airport for early international departure on business trip. Room smelled strongly of old garlic and bad air freshener. "Free" internet lasted less than 30 minutes and had to pay AUD 18 on top of rate that "included internet". Next time will stay in town as disadvantages outweigh the location and free airport shuttle.

airport accommodation

This was better than the hotel we stayed in near the CBD of Darwin. Modern & choice of restaurants with both establishments across the road from each other. The use of both pools was a bonus along with the courtesy shuttle to take you the airport. Driver was extremely friendly and does his job well. Thank you! Definitely will stay again. Cheers!!!

Neccessary evil

If it is the cheapest hotel and you have to be next to the airport and can avoid contact with the staff you will be fine. I could forgive one mistake but they were consistant initallly was provided a room for 2 need a room for 3 , was provided with free drink vouchers and told we could use them in either rydges facilities however the other rydges hotel across the road didn't seem to agree even though they are the same company, Staff in the bar were rude so i cancelled my order and spent my money elsewhere, they were going to look into this but never heard back, asked for an early morning wake which never happened. Not my best hotel experience but maybe I hold the bar too high or they hold it too low.

We ate at the chinese restaurant

We ate at the chinese restaurant at this hotel and I have to report the food was anything but authentic chinese- the sweet and sour pork was extremely tough and totally overpriced, i had to leave most of the meal behind - the service was poor and people who came in after us were served before us ? Sorry but this is double the price of Sydney
