Great hotel, modern with lots of inclusions that are not offered by other hotels. Rooms are spacious. Staff are fantastic. Happy to help and service is quick. Great location with restaurants nearby and 20min walk or short cab ride to the city. Would definitely stay again.

Hotel's Favorite
Everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel itself has a young, cool vibe. All of the happy, shiny staff could not have been more accommodating. They got us into our room shortly after we exited our cruise ship in Sydney, well before the usual entry time. The rooms were super spacious. Beds and sheeting were most comfortable. Throw in free drinks and other goodies and you have a great experience. There are numerous great restaurants on the wharf right by the hotel. Location is great too. Near the Botanical Gardens and art museum. Cannot recommend this brand enough.

My husband and I have stayed at the Ovolo many times and I am very sad to say that they have lost their touch. The service is nowhere near as good as what it used to be. We booked through Luxury Escapes and I believe that by doing so, we were penalise with a bad room without a view. Our experience in the bar was poor. The service and offering lacked. We would have been better off staying at home. We won’t be rushing back and certainly have noticed a big drop in standards compared to our previous visits.

Great experience from booking to checking out Amazing flexibility with booking having to change dates because of medical reasons . Responses within minutes. Check in was made so easy with Aneta making us feel so special . Lovely personal service . Venue is amazing and all the extras like free mini bar made you feel like they cared and not just running a business . Wonderful couple of days felt totally spoilt Thank you

The airconditioning didn't work properly and the room was freezing. It's now 8.15am and we are sitting in the breakfast area and it is colder than it is outside. I would say it is around 5 or 6 degrees this morning at breakfast. That's so uncomfortable, we have decided not to stay although our breakfast is included and we are going to go elsewhere to have our brekkie. The hotel is nice and the people there are nice but these issues made our stay very uncomfortable.

Hi there Travel98789765, Thanks for bringing this to my attention, you are right - it was absolutely freezing in the restaurant area, the sudden cold snap caught us a little off guard this year. I'm glad to inform this week we have invested in more heaters for the space and lap blankets if you do need that little extra bit of cosiness! I'm sorry this wasn't already in place on the morning you were heading in for breakfast, rest assured next time we are lucky enough to welcome you back the breakfast restaurant will be lovely and warm.
