Coming back to this gorgeously presented hotel was a nice feeling! The receptionist was lovely and courteous, she then surprised us by giving us an upgrade on our... More

It is conveniently located near Darling Harbour which is a restaurant mecca. The Darling is a pretty modernly appointed hotel. It is very comfortable and quiet hotel. As this was our first visit to Sydney... More

The only downside, was the it was bit noisy with the music from the night club, if you stayed on the lower... More

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
