“Simply Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

My Husband and I,stayed at The Darling on 31May.The service from the moment we arrived by taxi to getting to our room,was amazing.Their customer service tops any hotel we have ever stayed in.
Our room was just beautiful,attention to detail was incredible .
We would have liked a water view,but had a view over Pyrmont town and bridge.
The hotel eating areas as well as the resturant xx11, across the road are all so good.
We will be back for longer next time.
Our room was very clean and spacious,and what an amazing bed.

I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights. The hotel was perfect. The staff were welcoming and the service was great. The new revamped hotel looks amazing. Breakfast and dinner was magnificent. Great stay and would stay again when I go to Sydney. You cannot beat the location. Walking distance to everything Sydney has to offer.

Stay here for 2 nights for my brothers birthday. The room was spacious and also the bathroom, only thing that I saw that didn't look too good was the carpet, it seemed to be a bit dirty and many stains on it but apart from that the room was good. The service was good friendly staff. One thing i didn't like was the house keeping, they didn't seem to pay attention to detail, the beds were made up but it looked a bit shabby and they did not restock the toilet roll. The location for this hotel is great only a few minutes walk to Darling Harbour and around 15 minutes walk to Town Hall station and main shopping area.

Grabbed a room at the last minute with a sale site. The room was new, clean, and very well set out. Great location to explore the city, with lightrail travelling underneath. Expected a little more information either from the check in desk or inroom about what was what. Got lost several times in complex due to poor signage, but staff were friendly and helped point us in the right direction.
Would definately stay there again [ but only at sale price, not worth any more]

Room Tip: If you want a view, don't stay in the Pyrmont Rooms. Only looks over back yards & units.

Booked a 5 Star Mystery and was surprised to get Astral Residence. Have never stayed here before, and was very pleased.
The room (15th floor) was amazing. Huge King bed, Molton brown toiletries! Fab! Was especially great as we were traveling sans kids.
Will definitely be back!!

We travelled all over australia in may and loved every property we stayed in the astral tower was a shock when we came in as overseas visitors ,the staFf was very rude at the reception , we paid for breakfast for all the 3 days but nobody guided us to where it was laid ..we got in at 10.20 one morning and wreer told that its already been picked up!! On talking to the concierge he also dint know where to send us !! We were so upset that we dint bother with bf the next two days !! We were at shangrila cairns before this and their staff was the bestest mnost friendly staff on the palnet !! Astral tower nEeds to become more user friendly !! Nobody guides u where to go as it is a big property!! The taps in the Room arE primitive !! After such a high at gold coast q1 and sharila cairns ...I was let down in astral tower !!!

My wife and I stayed here on Sunday night to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Straight up we got a complimentary upgrade on our room. The room was amazing, spacious, classy and clean. The newly renovated casino looks great and the accommodation was conveniently located to king street wharf for dinner and breakfast the next morning. Overall very happy, thanks Star.
