Wonderful place, better service

Stayed here for a few nights for work. Room was a great size and all modern. Conference room was also great for work meetings. Hotel is also in a great location. However, the staff are really what topped it off. They were extremely friendly and accommodating, particularly Thomas at the front desk. Wonderful service and would definitely stay there for personal reasons.

Superb Service

Hotel is perfectly located in Darling Harbour, China town at your door step.Chinese gardens, you can see from your room. Wonderful service by all STAFF. Everything in the room was operational/functional. Bathrooms are a good size and well lite. We had lunch at the PUMP HOUSE - also fantastic. Not enough time to see the pool or gym area - maybe next time.

All round amazing

We stayed at Novotel Darling Square for a few days to take a break from work - and wow was it a break! The service is impeccable, with each staff member we met being kind and helpful to ensure our stay was the best it could be. How modern this hotel was surprised me and the room was spacious and quiet with all the newest technology and plenty of USB ports. Very COVID-Safe (much like other ACCOR properties) which we appreciated a lot. We unfortunately didn’t dine at any of the outlets, however the location of Novotel is fantastic with just a short walk to basically anywhere in the Sydney as well as very close to many tram and bus stops. The pool and gym are also lovely and spacious. Could not recommend this hotel more for an easy option that seasoned travellers will undoubtedly enjoy. Fantastic job!
