Reviewed 20 July 2014

My family and I stayed at the Novotel Sydney Central on the 11th July, 2014 for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed very warmly. We checked in quite quickly. We asked for an early check in and our room was ready by 12:30pm. Once we got to our rooms our rooms were clean and well equipped. The beds were also very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was amazing! It had everything one would ever want for breakfast. The waiting staff were very friendly and cleared plates away promptly. The food in the buffet was constantly checked and topped up. Location was wonderful, close to Central station and the free green bus. Not to mention very close to China town, Paddy's Market and Market City. We requested a late checkout and got that too! Checkout was also very quick and the staff very efficient. Overall, we were very happy with our stay at the Novotel Central, and we especially enjoyed our free Merlin attractions passes. Nothing more a family can want from a hotel!! Thank you to all the staff for making our first visit to Sydney a pleasant one.

We recently stayed for 2 nights with our 3 and 5 year old children. Our package included parking, breakfast and 2 attraction passes - it was fantastic value. The rooms are very spacious although the bathroom quite cramped. The buffet breakfast was delicious (the freshly cooked poached eggs were amazing!). The kids even had their own buffet area, a great idea. However the highlight for us was the kids corner in the lobby/restaurant area. There was a tv, a few games and a colouring in table. The kids loved it! Well done Novotel on catering to families with young children. We will be back!

Stayed here during the school holidays on a family fun offer; 2 nights, breakfast, parking and entry into two attractions was incredible value. As husband was already in Sydney my children and I caught the train to Central and it was a safe and easy walk at night to the hotel. Hotel location is great close to paddy's markets and about a 15 min walk to darling harbour, and it was quiet for Sydney hardly any traffic passed by as in the end of a culdersac and next to pedestrian walkway. The hotel really catered for the kids and even had a children breakfast buffet my kids loved the "pirate punch". All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and had a spacious sitting area, my only thing was lack of furniture in room and the location of lamps on the headboard. Will definitely stay here again.
