Nice lobby, dated rooms, got two free drink vouchers on arrival. Was told the restaurant and bar were closed for a function. So, nowhere to use the vouchers and nowhere to have a drink prior to going out. All this in spite of a perfectly good unused area with a empty bar upstairs. Overall unimpressed!

After doing some research Myrtle and I decided to stay at the Novotel Rockford in Darling Harbour knowing we were there for 3 precious days and thought it looked so very central to everything. Great location but everything else just seemed to fall short. Being an Accor member I paid extra for a view of the Chinese gardens on one... More

Very clean hotel, excellent reception staff who were very attentive with a minor issue I had. The room was a good size as was the bathroom, shower is over bath which may be an issue for some. It is in a busy area which is undergoing major construction- as is most of sydney it seems!! There was minor road noise... More

Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Room was noisy could here the traffic all night. Paid $45 dollars to have my car valet parked and it was left for several hours in a tow zone. Positive is the location. I used points to stay here and would be even more disappointed if I had paid.

Booked a room on 6th floor away from the lifts as recommended in previous reviews. The room was good, a bit of a tight squeeze with an added roller bed for my daughter otherwise very nice. Beds very comfortable, bathroom fine, good amount of hanging space. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was excellent we all had... More

Booked and paid for a room with a king bed - was asked at check-in to take a room with a single bed instead because "we overbooked the king rooms yesterday and we're very tight on them again today". Two of my colleagues were also asked to do the same. Dirty cups and teaspoons in the room and a poor... More

Our room this time was a little tired and the beds weren't as comfortable this time. Our room looked over to darling harbour, which meant we were right next to a busy road but didn't here a thing. Given it was a Friday night and the pump house was next door it was nice and quiet. Whilst the room itself... More

Very ordinary , dirty toilets with no toilet paper , all weekend in lobby toilets, even after we told reception. Lifts dirty and room service trays left in hall for over 24 hours . Location was good for theatre and Darling Harbour. Room was fairly clean.

I was very impressed by this hotel, Its location is great and the staff friendly. They are happy to honor our Accor Membership and treated us very well with a upgrade. The Pump house restaurant attached to the hotel is a great cozy and warm place for a meal on a cold Sydney night. My only down side is the... More
