We were relocated to Sofitel Darling Harbour after the Accor hotel we had booked was no longer available. The Sofitel Darling Harbour is a lovely hotel, the staff were very helpful and considerate. Room service arrived promptly and was very good quality. Good location if you want to be close to Darling Harbour or possibly if attending the convention centre.

Jan D. Solo - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was redirected to the Sofitel Darling Harbour as part of Sydney’s Covid restrictions , and this proved to be a wonderful change! I was recovering from surgery and needed peace and quiet, and that is what I got. Management even phoned to see if I wanted absolutely no one ( including staff) knocking on my door so I could rest more. That wasn’t necessary, and I loved having room service served by smiling and impeccably groomed staff. I didn’t want to leave!

Dear Jan D., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. I am so glad to hear you were impressed with the stay and were able to recover in peace at the hotel! Especially during this time we have put a big focus on room cleanliness so I am glad this had a positive impact on your stay! Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Scott Bear Front Office Manager

Pretty Poor for the price

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

506mexican 26/07/2021 TripAdvisor review

The rooms really small for the price. No-one answer the phone for room service. We were right near the lifts, where a lady and her mobile phone photographer took photos for hours. The pool was freezing, not heated. We couldn't eat vegan and gluten free. And we saw a couple having sex in one of the windows that looked onto Darling harbour. They were right on the window looking onto everyone passing by.

Bonjour 506mexican Thank you for your recent review with us. We thank you for the time to share your experience with us and future guests. Across all of our restaurants and bars we have a variety of gluten free, vegan and healthy options. As a luxury hotel we also will aim to cater for any other dietary needs or requests. We are sorry we did not anticipate your needs. In regards to the actions of other guests during your stay, we are here to ensure all our guests have a great experience within shared spaces of the hotel. However should another guests actions affect our guests enjoyment we will be happy to assist where we can. Thank you once again and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel were we can accommodate you better. Kind regards,

Lovely cosy atmosphere

Best Anniversary, Best Hotel in Sydney

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Davos 0. Couples - 07/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We received a room upgrade on check-in and a small gift for our anniversary. For dinner we dined at Atelier and were treated like royalty. When we returned to our room we realised the TV didn't work and was frozen to the home page. A call to the front desk resulted in Max attending our room and trying to rectify the problem with the TV. Unable to do so we were changed to another room and upgraded again to a Prestige Suite. The room was absolutely wonderful- one of the best we've stayed in around the world. We would like to thank Max for everything he did for us and all the other great staff at the hotel. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra 2 days.

Bonjour Mr. F., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team and Max in person. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our ambassadors as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

WanHG21 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Was celebrating our wedding that weekend and decided to treat the wife with a spectacular stay in Sofitel Darling Harbour - also because we cant go anywhere! The wife loves the bath overlooking the harbour so we obviously had to book a room with a view ! The Sofitel team was extremely attentive to our requests and were on top of it, even gave me a courtesy call and SMS to ensure I was well taken care prior to my arrival. The SMS service was really good, I was able to check when my room was ready so I would make my way to the hotel. I was offered a refreshing drink while waiting to check in - love this ! Not many hotels do this these days and its a refreshing welcome ! Definitely makes you feel special! Shout out to Francisco for taking care of our special requests so well (or my wife's!) she was definitely over the moon with the Junior Suite room overlooking Darling Harbour with the beautiful bathtub! The Club Lounge was impeccable with good service and view. Highly recommended to stay at Sofitel, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion, its definitely worthwhile!

TonyDiz 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Due toaccessing a free ight through Advantage plus via the phone the online operator decided to give me 2 separate bookings. I should have questioned this as I found it meant 2 separate rooms over the 2 nights, not what my family had in mind at all! While other staff "ummed and aahed" Renato, a duty manager cut through the issue by ensuring we would be in one room for both nights at the standard of the paid night. This saved a degree of angst and allowed us to enjoy the trip and the hotel as we expected we would. All other aspects of the hotels operation were at the normal, high standard of Sofitel and it continues to be our families hotel of choice when in Sydney.
