Great location and view from our harbourside room but the positives stop there. We had arranged to meet friends in the bar which was meant to stay open until 11pm - it was closed so we decided to go back up to the room and order room service. It was now late so our choices were limited to 6 items... More

The staff were kind enough to give my partner and I a complimentary bottle of champagne on arrival as we were celebrating our anniversary. It is a great place to stay overnight as it is in the centre of Sydney, quite close to public transport and a great view over the harbour!

We stayed here for 3 nights recently in a harbour view room and had a great stay . About the only issue was the hot water that you had to wait for 45 seconds to come on and then it wasnt hot enough to mix with cold water for a shower. Apart from that the place was great to stay... More

We picked this hotel as it was close to Doltone House where I was attending a dinner. It is only a 5 - 10 minutes easy walk away to Doltone house and the casino is on the way. We got the accomodation at a great price so upgraded to larger room overlooking the harbour. It really Is spectacular at night... More

We stayed 2 nights with Harbour View. We had a lovely room, however, the shower would havd had to have been the most unsatisfying experience. Not only did you feel the need to run around to find the water but it was, luke warm on full. In addition we had a hole in our sheets on the second night. Finally,... More

Awesome staff! Probably one of the best teams working in this industry. They were all very welcome and extremely helpful. The hotel rooms are nice and have a great view of Darling Harbour. Let down for me was the unstable Internet connection that didn't get better even when we changed rooms (I needed WiFi for work), I also ordered fries... More

The Novotel is not cheap and the price in no way matches the experience: - The service staff were generally courteous which is a plus - I work in an internet company and found the WiFi signal to be cripplingly slow and the signal was extremely weak. It dropped all the time. After one night I asked to move to... More
