“Nice for business or family stay.”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights in December with my wife and 8 year old son.Most important point to know is that there are 3 Novotel hotels in 2 km radius at Sydney.Best is Novotel Darling harbour,second one is Novotel city and this is the last.Though address says Darling harbour, it is not exactly located at the harbour but at a distance of 15 minutes walking.If you take different tours the exact address is must otherwise drivers land at different hotel.
However,this one is also conveniently located like many shops,eateries and china town are next to it.Reception is very nice,always helpful,rooms are typical Novotel style with usual amenities.But bathroom is really elegantly done.Very colorful and quite big.All toiletries,iron board,slippers,tea-coffee machine and minibar everything is there for your perusal.Nice swimming pool too.
Breakfast is really good and tasty.Spread is very nice.They have a restaurant attached known as pump house restaurant which is elegantly decorated with lots of varieties of options available.Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing darling harbour are better.

This was our first time with using the Acor Advantage Plus and booking our Hotel in Sydney for the before and after of our South Pacific Cruise. Our recepeption and service were exemplary on our one night stay for the 10th November.;' However when we returned from our cruise for the nights of 25th and 26th November, we arrived at the Novotel Hotel after disembarking our cruise, to find that we were no longer booked into this establishment and had our booking transferred to a Rydges Hotel. To further compound my absolute disappointment with this situation we also found on the morning of the 26th that our breakfast charges had not been on forwarded to this hotel and had to chase that up with Novotel. I then requested that someone from Novotel call me and advise why we were moved from that hotel to the other one. At this time I have received no advice or apology for this treatment. If I had wanted to stay at any other Hotel except the Novotel, I would have booked elsewhere. This was a very poor standard of practice that we were subject too, and I as a consumer, am not impressed with the 'advantages' offered by this Acor Advantage Plus system that I have paid for.

I was so happy with my stay at this hotel. Tania at the front desk was so lovely and helpful and even managed to get me into a room early which was much appreciated as I had been travelling all night.

This was a weekend in sydney with our near 5 year old grandson to show him all the wonderful lights & decorations etc. Our stay here was wonderful .location was great, right next door to the entertainment centre and the chinese gardens. We walked into the city Pitt street mall China Town was around the corner very close to every thing .We were lucky enough to be given an upgrade being Accor members, so the room over looked the chinese gardens and down towards darling harbour where all the fireworks could be seen from our room. Buffet breakfast was included in our cost which was excellent value. The pool was great and our grandson enjoyed splashing around.Staff were very nice and helpful, would definatley stay here again. Thankyou
