« Great location / easily accessible »

Was a nice hotel to stay as a family and was able to walk to most places we wanted to visit. Was surprised to hear of a $5 charge for ice though, never stayed in a hotel that charges for ice. The toilet seat was loose on arrival apart from that room was tidy and clean. No pen and paper in the room which was inconvenient. Buffet breakfast was fantastic, the barista made coffee was lovely and the man making them did a great job considering he had 5 or more people waiting at busy times.

« Close to everything but quiet rooms. »

Missed the cookies usually provided to accor members, and the slippers, but beds and breakfast always wonderful.

« Good stay - good location »

Easy check-in and check out, buffet breakfast was a good way to start the day. There are no blackout curtains so if you need to have total darkness to sleep, that's not going to happen - bring an eye mask. The room next door was noisy on the second night - might be an idea not to have the beds on the same side of the adjoining walls? Overall a good stay - will come back again even though I generally prefer an apartment instead of a hotel room.

« Definitely meets expectations »

All is all a pleasant stay. Located at Darling Harbor, allowing you to access most of Sydney's tourist facilities at ease. Hotel facilities, both in room and others such as dining and gym, are more than adequate for most travelers. Would recommend and would stay at the Novitel Darling Harbour again.

« Fabulous location »

It was a good stay. Had to pay extra for a room upgrade so that we could have a view of Darling Harbour which made it rather expensive. Also I never seem to get credit for booking direct through Accor of which I am a member.

« Great location, great staff »

As a family of four we had a great time staying at the Novotel Darling Harbour for two nights. The location is perfect for accessing Darling Harbour and easy to access everywhere else with the great public transport options available. The facilities were great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The kids got little soft toy gifts on arrival and my wife and I were able to go out to dinner alone for once as the hotel put on a movie and snacks for the kids!

« Ideal Location and Lovely Rooms »

We stayed here for the hotels proximity to Darling Harbour and were very satisfied with how easy everything was to walk to. The location of the hotel is near to the main points of Darling Harbour and also has a nice atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and accommodating and the room itself was very lovely and clean.

« Good location, clean rooms. »

Nothing to fault. Rooms were clean and well presented. Stay was comfortable. There was noise outside my door throughout the night but all in all it was a very comfortable stay.
