« Refurbished and Well Positioned »

Returned to this hotel after a long absence as it had become very tired. Rooms are now very comfortable and modern. Bathrooms well lit clean and functional. Positioned perfectly to access all the harbour activities and only ten walk to the CBD. Located next to the Pumphouse for some traditional pub fare or there are plenty of other eating options within minutes walk.

Dear JimmyGeelong, Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently, and taking the time to share your great feedback. We’re certainly glad you enjoyed our recent refurbishments and the Pumphouse. When you next choose to stay with us, we would encourage you to also dine in our newly refurbished a la carte restaurant, Pier St. Kitchen. Serving a great selection of seasonally inspired dishes, the restaurant is located directly off the main lobby area. Best regards Mitchell Morrow Front Office Manager

« Great »

The room was really nice and the beds were comfortable which is all I needed given I was only there for the night

« Value for Money »

I had an excellent stay. The Staff at the hotel were extremely hospitable and helpful. Great Location. Only point is - there is another Novotel at the Darling Harbor, so if you are taking a cab, you have to clearly mention this otherwise Cab drivers always take you to the other Novotel.

John G. Couples - 13/07/2018 AccorHotels certified review

We were happy with our room & service. We were happy to find a bottle of champagne left for our anniversary.

« It's been refurbished - time to give it a go! »

I hadn't stayed at this hotel for many many years as it had become run down and a dump. Spotted it online and noticed the renovated rooms and décor. Booked 2 rooms over 3 nights overlooking the Asian Gardens - well worth the upgrade for the view alone back to the Harbour and high floor is a must. The rooms were very well appointed and the décor choices were perfect. Bathrooms and their soaps etc. are very nice - smallish bathrooms but plenty of space for 1 person at a time. Bedding was very comfortable and room size was excellent. TV big and new - only disappointment was the channel selection could be greater to include movies and other sport like AFL and car racing. Service was great restaurant was modern and clean. Wasn't a fan of the buffet as access was not good when busy and there was no flow at all with the hot foods all leading into a corner - a revised map of this would be suggested. Food selection was great and plenty to offer. Overall I think the rates matched the facilities and glad we tried the hotel again. Hotel is well positioned next to the Pumphouse for your pub style drinks and the walk back down to the Harbour is lined with other food options.

« Quiet hotel of predictable quality in excellent location »

The usual Novotel thing. Comfortable bed, decent room size, helpful but unobtrusive staffing, good amenity. This hotel is very well located for Sydney CBD as well as for Darling Harbour, Cockel Bay, and Chinatown. I walked everywhere.

« Friendly courteous staff. »

I stayed 3 nights. From check in to check out everyone was friendly and helpful. The upgrades to the interior are lovely. Could I suggest that for guests staying for a few nights there needs to be more drawer space so that we can unpack?

« Wonderful stay »

From the beginning of our stay we were welcomed so warmly by the wonderful Kevin at reception. We were thrilled to receive an upgrade and were so happy with our room and service we stayed another night. Novotel you exceeded our expectations and treated us so well. Great location and beautiful rooms with a wonderful view.

Lee W. Families - 12/07/2018 AccorHotels certified review

We never checked in on this date. We stayed the 8-10 July (which was a great stay!). We have been charged for this night, but never stayed.

Lovely clean and great service Parking was too expensive

« Okay but unlikely to stay again without valet parking »

Receptionist very short and unhelpful, manager very good customer service and very helpful. The room size, amenities and cleanliness as expected. Very happy with the view of the Chinese gardens. Room service menu very limited after 10pm non of the normal late night snacks you’d expect BLT, toastie, sandwiches fries etc. The indoor pool was nice and was clean. Breakfast staff helpful, table nicely situated, variety of food was okay but the omelette was over cooked. The pump house was dirty and complementary drinks were very limited in choice. The major downfall of the hotel is the lack of parking (the manager very kindly helped us out with a parking space at the front of the hotel) but we’re unlikey to stay here again as the onsite parking is a lottery. There should be valet parking making use of the parking that the Sofitel and Novotel darling harbour use, I’m sure customers valuing the valet parking would not mind the wait.

« Great location, clean, and friendly staff »

The hotel was very clean and room was a great size. The only thing that I would’ve like would be parking included in the price of the room

« One of the best hotel experiences I have had! »

This really was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had! Great value breakfast, amazing bed and pillows and awesome location!

« Very satisfying most enjoyable. »

From the moment we walked in we felt like we were greeted by old friends. My daughter is still talking about her new friend Blake. He is a true professional and a credit to your hotel. We stayed at the Rocks last year 1100 a night. They could do with a lesson from your entire night staff on making people feel welcome and special. Absolutely fantastic time. Blake helped with maps info on where to go. Even printed paper work for me to help find my way around. Spoilt my daughter with a couple of toys. Just a really great experience. Very nice nice time for my family. We will be back soon.

« Outstanding »

The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast buffet was fresh and delicious. I’d suggest offering small China teapots for guests to make their own tea as the mugs were small and one teabag could easily make more cups

« Sydney Stay »

Great location and the best friendly staff around. Highly recommend staying in this hotel. Room was well appointed and comfortable. Plenty of local attractions to see and the local restaurants were exceptional quality and value for money. So many great things in close proximity to the hotel.
