A beautiful place to stay. The views are stunning, the rooms are beautiful. I took my partner there for the weekend to propose and with help from the more than willing staff it was a magical experience.

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

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
