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...

I recently stayed at the Novotel Rockford with a friend when coming to Sydney to see a show. Car park was slightly further away than anticipated - OK for us as we only had an overnight bag but I would wonder about people with more gear staying a few nights. Hotel staff were friendly enough although when my friend ran... More

Hotel Novotel is located at a walking distance from Darling harbour, which is the site of all action with restaurants, shops and most importantly, the start of Sydney showboat cruises. Hotel rooms are good, however, there are no good views from most of the rooms (there are other hotels nearby with better views of the harbour bridge and opera house).... More

Hotel staff were very friendly , car park was miles away in the entertainment centre car park. Upon entering the room, it appeared clean however upon closer inspection the bathroom was filthy. Mould in the bath/shower and pubic hair on the toilet seat! Our room was located on a very busy intersection and building site - not the hotels fault... More
