I have stayed at the Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour on several occasions when required to be in Sydney for work. The proximity to the CBD is awesome and allows you to walk to most parts of the CBD within 10-20 minutes. The rooms are a little dated, but clean and well maintained. The hotel is also located next to a...

Novotel Rockford is a fantastic place to stay; close to China Town, the Markets, Darling Harbour and everything else. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel was very clean. The Aquarium is great for kids and a walk and dinner in China Town is a must.

The Hotel overall is ok. Staff were friendly. They welcomed me as an Accorplus Member. But that's about it! The rooms are tired..... very tired! They needs revamp. The bathroom was ok. The showerhead was coming out of the wall! Not a good look. The breakfast selection was very ordinary. The coffee on offer is crap! The fruit looked as...

Stayed 1 night for business trip, hotel is a great location and close by the new ICC Darling Harbour. Room was clean and tidy with great service from staff. Fixture and decor of room could do with a refresh and is not modern however it was a comfortable stay after a long day.

I stayed here twice over the last few weeks. I raised these issues with the staff so it should be no surprise. First trip - very small room and HARD bed! Second trip - bigger room and better bed (since it was a king, it got a topper which helped) but bath with flaking enamel - it came off on...

I stayed there during Chinese New Year. I have the room overlooked the Chinese Garden. The room is pretty spacious, but the bathroom looks bit dated. I have breakfast at the hotel restaurant, not much to choose if you have 'Continental'.
