I have just come back from 4 nights at Novotel. I took my grand daughter to Sydney for her 18th birthday and Darling Harbour was her choice. The Novotel was absolutely fine, no complaints. Really comfortable bed and good linen. We had a view looking out over the harbour. We arrived at the hotel at about 11am and they were... More

We stayed here some 2 years ago when we decided not to come back, but we did and was not disappointed. There has been some capital upgrade and a redesign of foyer and dinning area, this is much more the Novotel I am used to. The rooms especially the bath still needs some upgrade but livable. Tips on booking, if... More

A group nine in town for a friends daughters hens night, we stayed at this hotel for one night. We had three rooms between us. The position was excellent for our needs. We were located on the fourth floor and the rooms were spacious. There was plenty of room for an extra bed, which would have avoided a need for... More

One of the best views in Sydney from Darling Harbour. Had a great view of the city from my high floor Darling Harbour view room. Nice deep bath and fluffy towels. A portable hairdryer was great not mounted to the wall. Room is a spacious and quiet and very comfortable beds with a selection of pillows.

Had some work in Sydney and was a chance to stay at the Darling harbour. Bit of a trick getting there, no thanks to our GPS. The staff were impressive at reception, even better in the Restaraunt and the pub down stairs with the food first class at both. The local ibis birds even provided some free entertainment looking for... More

The service we received at reception was very good but the room was disappointing. To have the hotel rated at 4 and a half stars I was expecting a bit more. While the room was clean and tidy but it was in need of some TLC. Another pet hate of mine is when the shower is located in the bath... More

Novotel in Sydney has the perfect location that a traveller would want - Bang opposite the Darling Harbour. That way everything that you would want to do in Sydney is at convenient distances from where you're staying. This is like any other Novotel around the world, nice rooms, even better service and really nice amenities.

High charges for wifi, horrid pounding music at breakfast and in the lobby, an analogue TV, shabby carpets and furnishings. Old room service food not collected outside neighbouring rooms all night. What a letdown for the Novotel brand, it was our most expensive hotel during a three week stay in Australia but the most disappointing. Staff were friendly and helpful... More

Staff here are second to none as is the food . Location for a visitor to Sydney is ideal. The area around the hotel has everything you need .As for a dinning experience you will not go past the the in house dinning room and fabulous staff.
