Excellent central Darwin Hotel
Excellent central hotel for bus, tour, and train pickups. Neighborhood acceptable by day but would be cautious on street at night. Excellent supermarket to supply the hotel’s well equipped kitchenette. Nice laundry room in the hotel. Helpful and pleasant desk staff. Did not use the hotel restaurant and others nearby.

Eat breskfast elsewhere
The breakfast was quite expensive and the food was not very nice. Needs a lot of attention.

Hidden glory almost 5 star.
Cheap lighting and no art on walls in otherwise well appointed, spacious room with expensive bath materials and excellent shower. Dramatic atrium needs more creative paint and dangling art, but good enough. High carb, fatty protein expensive breakfast. Fantastic service. Hessie and staff are gems.
Mike, us1 night trip
Rydges Darwin Central, Darwin
Almost excellent
A few dollars more for art and light fixtures could make a clean, boring room excellent. Bath already excellent. Atrium excellent design, but underutilized, no lounge seating, just dining tables. Breakfast is expensive, high carb, fatty proteins.
