4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed one night and the rooms were comfortable with very minimal noise. The staff were fantastic and the lovely lady on reception upgraded us to a room overlooking the Chinese Gardens and gave my daughter a stuffed frog which she thought was fantastic and carried around with her for the rest of the trip! Cannot fault the customer services... More

I had a spacious, clean, quiet and tidy room with a large bathroom and gigantic shower (no bath, though there was easily enough space for one, and it could have benefitted from another towel rail). The internet access worked well. Breakfast was excellent with European, English and Chinese options on the buffet. Staff very professional, friendly and helpful, and not... More

I stayed here with my family for 3 nights. A comfortable hotel (although the rooms were a bit small) with a great location (However, the other Novotel at Darling harbour is better located but more expensive) I needed some scanning and printing work and they were very happy to be of assistance and did it all for free (i was...

The location is very convenient to Chinatown, Paddy's Market and Darling Harbour. Had a room on level 7 overlooking the Chinese Garden. The room was clean and the bathroom on the small side. Others have commented on the shower over the bathtub and the comments are accurate. Sound proofing not too good, could hear noise from the corridor and people... More

We just went up for the weekend to visit friends and I thought I'd booked the Novatel on the harbour but this is a different one - newer and 5-10mins walk away. Hotel was clean and had everything you need, which you expect for the price - mini bar, iron, room service, bath, pool (no spa or sauna), gym (view... More

King bed squeaks when you move around. I am average in size and was not able to stand on the shower over bath, so any overweight person will have to stand sideways or risk falling over. I love the free magazines and newspapers and the restaurants are awesome.

I stayed at the Novotel Rockford for three nights with my 6 year old son (hubby only stayed for one night due to work commitments). The booking was only made about 48 hours before our arrival as our other accommodation fell through and I am very pleased that it did. On arrival at 10am I expected to be advised that... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, close to all the action, public spaces are excellent, customer service is excellent but the out dated bathroom let it down. The shower was over the bath which was built for a tiny person and it was difficult to navigate even though we are of average build. The tiles were very old and... More

Stayed here for a night on a business trip to Sydney. Location-wise, the hotel is very convenient with walking distance to tourist attractions at Darling Harbour. Right across it you can also easily find any dining places, mostly Chinese restaurants. Check-in and check-out were fast and efficient. I had left some of my clothes in the bathroom and the front...
