I stayed here twice over the last few weeks. I raised these issues with the staff so it should be no surprise. First trip - very small room and HARD bed! Second trip - bigger room and better bed (since it was a king, it got a topper which helped) but bath with flaking enamel - it came off on...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Stayed with my girlfriend for our anniversary. We chose Novotel due to a decent price for the area and proximity to the new ICC theatre as we were seeing a show there. The customer service we recieved from the entire hotel was exceptional. Patrick who checked us in was an absolute pleasure and went out of his way to ensure...

I stayed there during Chinese New Year. I have the room overlooked the Chinese Garden. The room is pretty spacious, but the bathroom looks bit dated. I have breakfast at the hotel restaurant, not much to choose if you have 'Continental'.

I stayed just one night for business in early February. It was very difficult to get accommodation and therefore the price could not be considered good value. A great friendly reception by the front desk. The rooms are clean, but very very tired. The clerk did indicate that a refurbishment is about to occur.

Stayed here for two nights recently. Its a very busy and expensive hotel with a large footfall. the pump house bar and restaurant next door is fine and the food pretty good. reception staff are hurried and harried and could provide better support.

Located on the Darling Harbour side of the CBD at the bottom end of Goulburn, the Rockford is squeezed between major roadways and Chinatown. Some rooms look out over The pleasant Chinese gardens around Tumbalong Park, others towards Paddys Markets (and, currently, across a massive building site in the early stages of groundwork - might be worth checking room allocation...

We have stayed here many a time over the years, but this overnight stay was disappointing. We requested a quiet room but was placed in a room just above the huge aircon units and opposite a building site. Room was very tired and poorly appointed. Towels thin and grey. We called reception to entire about the noise and a possible...

Dirty rooms Breakfast service is slow for business travellers, they are more interested in serving employees and constructions workers at the hotel rather than guests. At check out I asked for my receipt and was given another guests receipt, when I contacted the Novotel for my own receipt, they apologised at the breach of privacy and ensured me they would...
