My partner and I stayed for a night as part of a engagement present to see the Lion King. My to be mother in-law chose this place as it was close to the theatre. Having worked in the hotel industry for 10 years, it is very hard for me to find the WOW-factor in a lot of hotels, but this... More

Stayed here for 10 days in May. Location was perfect as easily accessible for Darling Harbour, Central Sydney and right next to China town. Excellent value for money. Staff from check-in to check-out were friendly and exceedingly helpful. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Sydney.

Stayed here for a one night business stay with a colleague. I am a IHG rewards member and upon check in I was informed I was upgraded to a superior king room, however we wanted twin beds. It was a wonderful welcoming gesture, that I hope I will get to experience the next time I stay here for pleasure. All... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour. The hotel itself is a typical Holiday Inn that is a little long in the tooth. However, the friendly staff and great location more than make up for the age of the hotel. Also, the room was a good size, clean and quiet. Prompt elevator service was appreciated. They... More

We stayed here for four nights in August. The location is very convenient for Darling Harbour which is only a ten minute walk away. Circular Quay is a bit further but there are plenty of buses. The room was quite small for the three of us but always kept clean. Chinatown is only round the corner where there are some... More

We stayed during the NYE celebrations, and although it was quite expensive during that busy time of year we were treated wonderfully by all staff. Since it was during our honeymoon, we re welcomed with a personal note, champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate in the room - that was a nice surprise! The bed was very comfortable with various... More

The location is excellent, China Town is just behind the hotel, Darling Harbour, with all its attractions is 10-15 mins. walk away and Paddy's Market is at the end of the street. It is a typical Holiday Inn, nothing fancy but ticked the boxes for my trip which was a balance of price and location. I found the staff to... More

This property of Holiday Inn was really good, Most of their properties are old one. It has a good clean room, good service, co-operative staff. Its location is also good, very near to chinatown and 10 minutes walk to darling harbour. you can do souvenir shopping in paddys market just close to it.

Stayed one night at this hotel in August. Have stayed many times over the years for work. Convenient location, good breakfast, reasonable service. Rooms are Holiday Inn standard from a few years ago. Can be a little noisy depending on which room you get, however you expect this being in a city center. Lastly: showers have shower curtains in some... More
