« Great weekend »

A great long weekend at the Sofitel ! The room was beautiful had great views and was a good size . Every request was met by all staff and they were always polite and happy . We did try to pay for an upgrade but we’re unsuccessful as it was a busy weekend. It’s so close to darling harbour and all it has to offer that even when it rained we didn’t need to get wet going to Harbourside . We received a surprise for our anniversary which was also nice. All in all a great weekend will definitely stay again and hoping to do so every couple of months .

« Expected more from the Sofitel »

I was really looking forward to my stay at the Sofitel, but I was overall underwhelmed and a little disappointed with my stay. On check in I had to wait till 3pm to get into my room, which I realise is the check in time here but whenever I have stayed at other Accor Hotels I have always been checked in early. The room itself was very average, again I expected more from this brand My room at the Novotel 2 weeks earlier was just as good. The breakfast was average, again no better than the Novotel and possibly worse, There was no variety in the offer, it was the exact same everyday. The service was also disappointing. I had to wait over 1/2 an hour for an Ice bucket. The staff were polite but not friendly, it all seemed a bit forced. In comparison the staff at the Novotel were very friendly, helpful and seemed like they were always really enjoying themselves. I would recommend the Novotel at Darling Harbour over the Sofitel every day of the week.

« Great hotel in a great location »

The staff were friendly . Lunch in the restaurant was delicious . The afternoon tea and 5.30 drinks /food was worth visiting especially with the wonderful view of Darling Harbour.

I upgraded my room, not expecting that much I was overwhelmed when I turned the key and walked in, absolutely fabulous, breathtaking, complete 200 degree views of the city and the habour from the 25th floor, I didn't want to leave, I was in complete luxury.

« Shiny and new with woderful staff »

From check in to check out this place was great! There was long line for check in but a staff member was there managing the queue and apologizing. We progressed quickly. Our Harbor room was lovely, we paid for an upgrade and it was money well spent! The room was modern and very clean with a great size bathroom! The Champagne Bar was wonderful and a special mention to Jarrod the Bar Manager, who remembered us from a previous visit in February...very impressive!!!

« A pleasant short stay »

The stay was good. I liked the big TV, many hotels skimp these days and do a smaller TV. Chocolates as a gift in the room were very much appreciated. Robes were of a high standard. Breakfast options were plentiful. Location and views are spectacular. Plus the new fish tank at reception is impressive I would happily return and have already recommended it to other people. If I was trying to find something to help you improve, I was unsure if my breakfast (which was part of my package) could have been served in my room at no extra cost. In the Darling I have that option by filling out a menu card the night before.

« Unforgettable »

We really really enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel - it definitely lived up to the expectations. Just a huge thank you to the polite and friendly staff at the front desk, as well as Juliana from the Sales team who made our stay really lovely. The view and the room was stunning, and the thoughtful amenity was a really nice touch.

we had a darling harbour view room windows were very dirty. so didn't think it was worth extra expense. but the club windows were very clean. I suspect they have used more expensive self cleaning glass.

Long weekend stay to meet up with family in Sydney. The room was very nice. There was a Filipina housekeeper that was very helpful sadly forgot to get her name. Reception was very professional and welcoming.

« Ok but was disappointing as it wasn't up to the usual Sofitel experience. »

Overall the stay was pleasant, but the hotel is lacking in many areas and just did not reach the usually impeccably high Sofitel standard. I am usual fairly silent with surveys and have rarely had a bad experience at an Accor hotel. I wouldn't say that our recent stay at Sofitel Darling Harbour was bad, but it was thoroughly underwhelming given the status of this hotel. In short it just really lacked the feeling of totally luxury and dedication that is normally at Sofitel hotels. The room was well appointed, but the Champagne Bar and Club Millesime were below standard and were disappointing. It was hard to get service in the Champagne Bar (when it was relatively quiet) and on both occasions we attended we had to seek the waiter (after being seated for 15-20mins) to get a menu and then again order drinks and get the bill. We ordered Salt and Pepper Calamari one night and it arrived as one adjoined lump of excessively oily Calamari that I suspect was just reheated which was disappointing. Club Millesime was a beautiful location and Francesco was a superb host, but breakfast was disorderly with dirty tables and no clear roles or duties for the staff and as such we had to clear a table each morning before sitting and then patiently seek down staff to order coffee and our hot breakfast. As an observer, I suspect that the breakfast time was somewhat understaffed. During the day the tables remained dirty from breakfast. The evening Canapés were well appointed and relatively well organised. On the Sunday morning we booked diner in the Restaurant for 9pm through Francesco at Club Millesime which was very easy and Francesco was very attentive. However, when we arrived at the restaurant on Sunday evening it was in the process of closing and there was no record of our booking. We ended up having to find a restaurant outside the hotel which was so easy being a long weekend. Francesco became aware of this on Monday and offered his sincere apologies which was well received and appreciated. However, I struggle to see how a hotel such as Sofitel would allow their only Restaurant to close at 9pm in the middle of a public holiday long weekend. Whilst we were lined up to check our non-existent booking, there were also other people queued up that were seeking dinner, only to be told it was closed/closing. I have stayed in lesser Accor hotels where the dining room was more accessible. The room was nice and well appointed, but upon arrival bother the sideboard (mini bar counter) and bedside tables had clearly not been cleaned since the last guests as there were distinct water marks and traces of spillage (coffee/tea maybe) on these surfaces that wiped away with a face washer from the bathroom. I am feeling somewhat brutal offering this unfiltered feedback as many of the staff were so friendly and helpful, but given it is a new hotel I believe such feedback is required so things can improve to the expected Sofitel standard.

« Overall a positive experience »

This is my first time staying at Sofitel Darling Harbour. My overall experience has been positive and would recommend to others. All the staff at the hotel greeted us warmly, room attendant was prompt, the cleanliness of the hotel was top notch. The view was superb! During check in hours it was a little busy and there was no coordination on what line we should wait, it is best to have a staff member direct us to the right counter, instead of waiting in line and feeling that we are pushing in among others, this is just a minor issue that can be rectify. Thank you so much to everyone in Sofitel, you are fantastic!

« Poor service & organisation or staff »

Upon arrival I was advised I had booked a room with twin beds, when I had booked a Superior. They were quick to change. I also advised I had received a delivery which should be waiting for me. They had no idea where it was. I had to ring the shipper of the hamper to gain a time of delivery and signature, they finally tracked it down :-( The staff were often too busy taking photographs of the aquarium behind the reception counter to service their clients. A disappointing stay.
