The best Breakfast!

I stayed at The Darling and thought it was brilliant. The breakfast was sensational and different from the usual standard buffet at many hotels, The room over looking the pool was spacious and the bed was comfortable too.

The size of the suite was bigger than our apartment and the interior design was just gorgeous. Having stayed in some fabulous hotels I can often be nonplussed but I was overjoyed with the room we had. The comfort offered by the beautiful oversized chair, the luxury of the giant bath tub, the feeling of sitting on a cloud in... More

We arrived here yesterday in Sydney. A stylish contemporary designed hotel with well-appointed rooms. There's building work happening at the moment but it didn't interrupt our enjoyment. The location is close to darling harbour - not a brilliant location for the city, but not too out of the way to get around. Service was good - on arrival we requested... More

Best Pizza and cheesecake desert I have had in a long time. Highly recommend this place. They do eat in, takeaway or they deliver to your hotel room.

A pleasant little Italian pizza and pasta restaurant which has both a sit-down and take-away section. We were staying nearby and dined in with our 4 kids (aged 9 to 14). While I could not say there was anything really wrong, but there was nothing to rave about either. The food was very ordinary compared to what we expected from... More

Clean, modern, beautifully decorated, the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever tried. The staff was excellent. We loved our stay. Highly recommend this hotel. You get more than your money's worth.

We have eaten at The Darling on a number of occasions and will continue to eat there. The food is pastas and pizza and they are all well priced and tasty. It is small inside and the atmosphere feels a little rushed, but the service is great and the staff are wonderful. If you are looking for a nice place... More

Stayed at the Darling for the first time as my husband wanted to go to the Casino. Had two nights there and loved it. The room was fairly roomy and well appointed and a great location. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Thought the breakfast at Bistro 80 was very poor and not good service at all. Had dinner... More

A delicious Japanese restaurant with a good choice for the non-fish eater like myself, and a larger variety of fish as from what i saw on the tables around me. Good atmosphere and a great feel
