Our room was a present from our children to spend week end. The room was clean and bed was comfortable, but it has no view of the harbour.

The hotel is within 5 minuets walking distance to Darling Harbour which has every thing from entertainment to food and restaurants and shopping center.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room with a view over the Harbour.

WOW. First time I've stayed at the Novotel at Darling Harbour, and I must say that I'm quite suprised.

The level of service, from check in to check out was fantastic.

The room we had (Executive Darling Harbour view) was very well appointed, and the bathroom was quite large and decent.

The beds were fantastic and a goods night sleep is guaranteed.

One night at dinner we asked for deserts in our room, and the request wasn't a problem at all.

We also left a card behind and staff were helpful in finding it for us the next morning.

I cloaked my bags for the next day and the staff were more than happy to assist in any way possible.

For a hotel that is not marketed as 5 star, the Novotel Darling Harbour really holds it head high compared to even the 5 star offerings in Sydney. Well done to the staff and Management... you should be proud of such an excellent place.

Absolutely recommend this to business trips, or those just wanting a nice weekend away.

Room Tip: The Executive Rooms are larger, and if you can snag one at a good price, get one. They are very much...

We recently stayed here for two nights. We could not believe the incredible service. Nothing was ever a problem, the staff were friendly, warm and helpful. The children loved the Wii downstairs and enjoyed their cuddly toys. The room was great. We paid for a street view room but were upgraded to a harbour view room. The best thing was the location. It rained alot during our stay but with the covered walkway to the mall we stayed dry.

Stayed here for one night for our five year anniversary. We got a great deal on the executive suite which had an incredible view of the city and harbour. Room was clean and huge. Although this is out of our normal price range that is the only thing that would stop us returning. It was a great night
