Excellant customer service from arrival to departure. We were very impressed with the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour and we will be back. This was a family weekend in the city and the view was amazing and well worth the price. Great location and convince to all transport. I wanted to take home a pillow as the pillow menu was a treat!!

Jessica Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful hotel, the nicest we’ve stayed in! Nice touches like a welcome drink, and all the little goodies in the room. Super clean. Buffet breakfast was amazing, and loved that barista coffee and fresh cooked food like omelettes were included. Location was perfect for darling harbour.

Good view and location, but failed to deliver on the 5-Star experience.

paul_in_melb TripAdvisor review

This is my fourth or fifth stay at the Sofitel Darling Harbour. I very much enjoy the hotel and the location. This trip I tried Atelier restaurant and very much enjoyed the food. The Ambience can be improved but the food was fantastic and affordable. My only concern is the firmness of the beds. I did ask the executive lounge to see what could be done to make them a bit softer but I received no feedback and no action on my request which was strange. The executive lounge is definitely the highlight of the property. Perched 35 floors above darling harbour the view is terrific and worth staying for. A special thanks to Elmo for your service and great humour!

Bonjour paul_in_melb, Thank you for your review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. My apologies no one followed up with you regarding your bed. The Housekeeping Team are able to make it softer for you should you wish for next time. A comfortable bed is certainly very important! We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Greg Brady - General Manager

We enjoyed the view from our corner room but we found the room to be quite small. The bathroom was very nice and well stocked with lovely amenities. We really didn’t like coming into the room without the air conditioning turned on it was extremely hot and uncomfortable when we walked in. We loved the cake it was a nice surprise for my husbands birthday.

Lovely stay

Waiters (butler service) were all of a very high standard and could not do enough for you. We found that food was monotonous, maybe our stay of 7 nights was too long, but we found same food offered throughout the week except for one or two nights.

Everything was perfect

I stayed there for a night feel welcomed with nice written welcome card. I order in-room dining food was excellent. Great view from the room. Minibar was up-to date. We had buffet breakfast next morning it was lovely, staff were helpful variety of options for food. I thought i was told pool opens till 10pm but when i went there around 9ish it was already closed may be i heard it wrong or something happened that day but it’s ok may be in my next visit. Thank you for such a memorable stay

MarioTurcarelli Business - TripAdvisor review

This was our second stay at this Hotel. Whilst there was a mix up in the room allocation, the staff were efficient and friendly and tried to make up for it. The Valet parking is busy, and very tight, but the staff work hard to get your car as quick as they can. Both the Level 3 Bar and restaurant were busy but good. And the club Millesmine was at the Sofitel expected level. The room was very clean and well fitted out with Magnificent views of Darling harbour. Overall a very good hotel.

Bonjour MarioTurcarelli, Thank you for you review. I am so pleased the team were able to look after you. I have passed on your feedback. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Greg Brady - General Manager
