        Nice, clean room. Great view & most staff very nice.

        Car parking, no opening windows in smoking rooms. Foxtel channels?? not enough of.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The view of Darling Harbour and Cockle Bay were outstanding. Our room was on the 5th floor. Would have liked a higher level.

        Breakfast finished 30 minutes before the time published in the room info booklet.

        Darling harbour

        When my family including a five and two year old arrived at the hotel,after a four hour drive,we were told our room had to be cleaned and was not ready.Checkin time was 2pm,we were asked to wait . 345pm arrived and I approached the reception to be told sorry I forgott about you.The walls were paper thin and we had a drunken foulmouth staying in the room next to us.The heater didnt work.

        The location.

        Some of the staff are not aware/not precise of the shopping time (open hours for the surrounding shopping centres and malls). E.g. We asked about the time the shopping closed and he just answered with a time that was not aplicable for the exact time the shopping open hours!

        Air conditioning did not work well. The room was not available at the check-in time. Hotel clerks were not friendly. A bed was too soft. I will never stay in this hotel.

      • Couple
        2.4

        Did book online and it said reservation booked check in and pay on check in date - no they took the monies out of our account within 5 days and then they did not inform us about the car parking fees at $40 per day - plus over the pyrmont bridge tolls so underline big q would I stay there again no - u all need to check the underline expenses - so no would never go back - you people need to tell everyone the excess monies because us little peopl cannot afford the extras considering it only cost us $27 in fuel for the whole 4 days get a grip we are the ordinary people that want value not extras

        Location to Darling Harbour amenites etc

        The novolel is very central with great eateries

      • Group of friends
        5.4

        That the location was close to city shops and darling harbour and nice place to eat

        We didn't like that parking wasn't included in our stay, or that we did get asked what time of pillow we wanted and only saw there were options after arriving and going through the hotel menu . Also the breakfast menu wasn't explained well enough as we assumed same price would be on offer in the room menu as down stairs in the resturant.. We would have like there to be a skim milk option in the room to make tea/coffee also .

      • Older travelers

        Shower was terrible, very little hot water and no pressure.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        conveniently located for entertaimments,shopping,food. friendly and helpfull staff

        the lighting in the Lobby area could be a bit brightter

      • Single
        8.8

        It is close to the convention centre where I was attending a three day industry convention. The hotel is well managed, clean, efficient, friendly, well appointed and has a comprehensive dining catering to most dietary preferences. The view of the harbour is panoramic and the room I stayed din was comfortable clean and included a work desk. I have my own internet connection so didn't use the hotel's but it is available.

        Nothing of significance. I would have preferred the breakfast area to open at 6 a.m. rather than 6.30 a.m. but room service breakfast is offered from 6.00 a.m.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Great location, helpful staff, pleasant atmosphere

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The city view was fantastic. I liked also that the staff did not make you feel like you were a 'country bumpkin' visiting the 'big smoke'. They were courteous, offered ideas for activities and were good, caring people.

        Our number 4 for room service didnt work, however we rang reception and there was no problem.
