« Excellent Location for ICC Darling Harbour »

We always choose to stay here when attending an event at the ICC due to the close location. The staff are friendly and the hotel has been upgraded and has nice decor. As a loyalty member we were greeted with a gift bag containing 1 bottle of water and a packet of cookies which was nice...2 bottles of water would have made more sense since there was 2 of us but I did appreciate the loyalty thank you gesture. The rooms and beds are comfortable although we did have a disrupted sleep this time due to repeatedly hearing loud sounds of flushing water running through pipes which appeared to be coming from the room above. It was mentioned to reception and they said they would look into it but we didn’t hear back. We have never heard anything like this on previous visits. Breakfast is nice but I was a little disappointed that tea/coffees were not brought to our table. My mom is in her 80s and I have mobility issues so I feared one of us would be bumped by one of the many guests that were having breakfast or we would lose our balance and drop them. So we opted for no coffee/tea. We had a couple of drinks at the bar over the 2 nights and tried new drinks which we liked. We also enjoy the internal walkway from the hotel to the Brewery. The Food and beer are tasty here but the pub itself is looking shabby...they desperately need to recover the bench seats which are all ripped and cracked. Even so it was packed and very difficult to get a table without a reservation on a Friday night. We would happily stay at the Novotel Darling Square again if the plumbing problem was fixed. It’s hard enough to get a good nights sleep when you are away from home let alone being woken up to loud noises from the room or ceiling above.

« great location and very clean »

I have stayed there for about 4-5 times in the last 6 months. On a recent survey i made mention that i was always put in the back room and was promised on my next visit i would have a river front view. this NEVER happened. At check-in I reminded your nice receptionist of this and she addressed this matter for this visit. Hope the same happens next visit. Should be back in late March

« Great Hotel »

What a wonderful hotel, perfect position, great staff and fabulous service. 9ly concern was the Pump Bar next door, food was terrible and Chef staff rude and totally unprofessional BUT this was not the Novotel, just the attached pub.

« Easy stay »

One night stay. The refurbishment is very nice. The shower had a leak which ran across the floor in the bathroom. Comfortable for a one night stay. Breakfast was quite poor. Food not hot, one toaster, food order way too slow and not nice on arrival, too cramped for the number of people eating.

« Lovely Staff »

Stayed for two nights and had a good time at this hotel. Nice staff and a great location near Central Station, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. I'd give it an higher score except that the a la carte breakfast menu was limited, they ran out of orange juice the first morning and the breakfast staff look a little undermanned PLUS the iron in the was dirty and took a few runs on a towel to get rid of the muck before I ironed my (white) dress shirt. But overall not too bad.
