Nice hotel that is well appointed and well positioned. The staff were very friendly and the complimentary drink vouchers were a nice surprise. We were able to walk to the city for some shopping in the afternoon and then go to our vivid cruise in the evening.

Convenient and central location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

lincolnlim Business - 20/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

A great hotel nearby Darling Harbour. I have stayed in several hotels in Sydney but most preferred this hotel for its location which is centrally accessible to many places. The only regret on this stay was that i found a pair of socks from its previous occupiers which was not cleared away. Probably an overlook situation.

Many thanks for taking time to review your stay, lincolnlim. We are pleased you enjoyed you time with us and ask you rest assured your comments have been shared for appropriate follow up with our housekeeping team. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Regards Scott

First visit after renovations - most impressed

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Gordon W Couples - 08/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Formerly the Rockford, this used to be our go to hotel in Sydney. The exterior is looking a little tired amongst all the revelopments of Darling Harbour. This was our first visit since the hotel re-opened following a major renovation - and it was great as always. Service is first rate; the rooms have had a major makeover and it was a very pleasant stay. If you are driving, think about bypassing the hotel parking offer - $46 per 24 hours. We booked a $21 overnight stay (midday to 10am) online with Wilson Parking Darling Square.

We're so pleased to hear you returned and enjoyed the recent renovations and service from our team, Gordon W. Thanks for sharing your experience and we look forward to being your 'go to hotel in Sydney' again. Regards Scott

Great Facelift ! Gym needs improvement.

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

roshinp2017 Business - 07/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Design, size and type of equipment in gym needs major improvement. Shows that the person who put the gym together has no clue about the usage and space needed for the machines. No weights and no proper space for body workout.

Hi roshinp2017, Thanks for taking time to share your feedback. We continue to review our fitness and leisure experience for guests, and look forward to several upcoming changes in this space. We will be sure to consider your comments as we look to optimise our facilities here. Regards Scott

Birthday Treat

Andrew G Family - 19/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Excellent from the word Go I would like to make a special mention of a young lady called Melissa, she made everything perfect for my partner and 11 year old as they arrived prior to myself. The special thing being the cakes and soft drinks with balloons for the little girls Birthday (a very nice touch)

Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently, Andrew G. We are so pleased your daughter enjoyed her birthday surprise, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Regards Scott

Great Stay

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

datsun76 Business - 17/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Had a great three nites last week at the Novotel Darling Square. Only minor gripe, was breakfast. I just wanted a couple of poached eggs on toast, but was pushed into buying the buffet breakfast, which was just too much. Sadly there was no other options but to buy the entire buffet. hmmmm I felt really compelled.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, datsun76. We are pleased you enjoyed your time with us, and thank you for your comments regarding a la cart breakfast options. A number of light 'grab and go'breakfast options are available through our lobby bar in the morning, however your suggestion to include other plated items from the kitchen is noted. Our food and beverage team will take this opportunity to review offerings here. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards Scott

A construction site

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Rob O Business - 10/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

I wish the Accor website had identified that this hotel was under renovation. On of my main requirements was on-site parking. I arrived to find out that this wasn't the case due to construction. The lobby was so noisy (with a guests in the bar), that I struggled to hear the check-in staff - perhaps this could have been considered in the ongoing renovations? It was a struggle to find the entry way and this changed repeatedly due to construction. I was given a room for two nights on the north side. The room was poorly accoustically screened so I could hear the nearby music concert and the traffic on the adjacent highway. Once this settled down I was kept awake by the steady stream of guests using the adjacent lift area. (For most of the stay only one lift was working out of the three available. I'd have to admit this one one of the worst hotels for facilities, location and noise that I have stayed in for a long while - particularly at that price point.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently, Rob O. Please accept our apologies for the challenges you encountered during your stay. I would appreciate the opportunity to further discuss the experience outlined with you personally. Please contact me directly, 02 8217 4000 or h3021-gm@accor.com at your convenience.

A rest place after our train trip

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Lindyl0u54 Couples - 26/02/2019 TripAdvisor review

Have stayed at this hotel before and have always felt welcomed. The central location is what really appeals to me. China Town is across the road and Darling Harbour is a few hundred metres away. The only negative was the construction around the hotel. Not very pleasant.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay with us, Lindyl0u54. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. Regards Scott

Hugh T Couples - 28/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

The Novotel was more than adequate for us, The room was large, everything was spotless and it was so central for us to get to Chinatown and Darling Harbour. The beds were comfortable and service was good at reception. The Breakfast Deal was unbelievable!

Absolutely excellent hotel - service, location, check in , check out, facilities were all excellent. Darling square is so close to Darling Harbour with all the restaurants and other attractions. Paddt's market is so close to the hotel and so is the Light rail - what a great place.

Modern Facilities and Cosy

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Winthrop8 Solo travel - 10/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Amazing hotel. The room is modern and Cosy. My first time to stay here and will definitely come back. I can't find any fault in the room. Spotless.Only to improve the customer service aspect at the front desk. It lacks the warmth in welcoming guest.Great breakfast. Need to improve how they prepare the bacon. Wide selection and great taste.One of my favourite now among Accor hotels.

Dear Winthrop8 Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Novotel Sydney Darling Square and for taking the time to provide us your feedback. Wonderful to see you had such a great stay and I'll be sure to share your comments with the team so we improve our service. Look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Room was great but no hotel parking, then to try and find it, then to find out that it’s $46 for a night-ridiculous!!!

SharonG3175 Couples - 26/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

Room was great but no hotel parking, then to try and find it, then to find out that it’s $46 for a night-ridiculous!!! This should be advertised on website so it’s not a shock and may make alternative travel plans.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently, SharonG317i5. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed the hotel and accommodation. We apologise for any inconvenience caused through the offsite parking direction listed on our hotels website. As noted, the discounted $46 rate is exclusively available to hotel guests making use of the Wilson Parking house on Zollner Circuit. Regards Scott
