Stay 7th floor the first night, every pleasant , that's newly renovated rooms, but stay at 5th floor the second night, it's bit old, for me I will rate it at least one star less

Breakfast was excellent quality, truly enjoy the breakfast, normally I don't appreciated hotel breakfast!

Stayed November 2013, traveled on business

Fabulous location very close to the entertainment centre, darling harbour and china town. But we were let down with the cleanliness of the place, it doesnt look as fresh as the pictures on the internet. I feel that we were ripped off, we were offered a free breakfast but that didnt make it any better.

Room Tip: Check your quilt & how clean it is also your bathroom has the floor been washed or the shower cl...

Great location and great value. The breakfast wasn't the best I've ever had however, it served it's purpose. The gym was small but good quality (perhaps fortunate there wasn't anyone else in there due to limited space). Room was clean and modern. I will be back to stay again.

I spent two nights at the Novotel Rockford with my husband and 6 other friends.
check in was quick and the rooms looked good with a small house keeping problem , no pillow slips on pillows and 1/4 roll of toilet paper no spare. This issue was solved quickly.
On using the toilet it wouldn't flush so I rang down and the response was you need to push it down really hard to activate the flush , no result, so the front of house was sending some one to look at it ,other friends tried to flush the toilet and also had a problem and commented that they didn't have any such problem with there own.
Some one came after 20 minutes or so and said " you need to push down hard" and all was fixed.
My issue is why didn't other rooms have the same problem and why have toilets to hard to flush .
the only other problem were the pillows , cheep and very uncomfortable , you would think a brand such as Novotel and Accor would get descent pillows , they were just like the ones you pick up for two for $5 at the local $2 shop. I have never slept in a hotel with such poor quality .
over all the stay was great just the few niggles above , but maybe think twice about staying there again
