Room was clean and tidy Lobby have a small kids corner which is quiet good for children waiting mom and dad Field House’s food was delicious Surprise birthday cake was prepared for birthday star during stay👍🏼👍🏼Love this so much

The lobby area is nice, breakfast excellent and bed comfortable. The hotel is surrounded by high rises though so there is no privacy and no view. We didn’t find any nice restaurants close by so walked to Darling Harbour most nights. If I was visiting Sydney again I would choose a different location.

I stayed here for three nights for a conference held in the hotel. I had an Executive Floor room, though I'm not sure that made any difference to anything. Unlike Hilton and Hyatt, the Executive Floor doesn't offer any food or other benefits. The room was big, but the bathroom was tiny and it was very awkward to get in and out of the bath to shower. The taps were located in a way that had the potential of scalding you with hot water before you had the chance of adjusting with the cold. And getting out of the shower was a bit of a step down AND the potential of falling over the toilet. The waste bin was in an awkward corner, and two people couldn't use the bathroom simultaneously. With all the space in the room, I'm surprised that they didn't take an extra 50 cm or even a metre from the room for the bathroom when it was designed. The bed and pillows were comfy, the a/c worked well, and the desk facilities were adequate. Power outlets near the bed were hiding behind the side tables and the bed, and were hard to reach. As far as the conference facilities went, the function room lights kept dimming and brightening, which was very disconcerting, and the a/c had problems -- it was either way too hot, or too cold. The catering done for the breaks was good -- fresh fruit platters, plus cakes or pastries. Breakfast and lunch were both buffet-style in the Fieldhouse Restaurant inside the hotel, and were good, with plenty of choice. The conference dinner was catered by the hotel and held in a function room upstairs. It was excellent.

Great hotel in good location for travelling in and out of Sydney - very close to Central Railway Station, easy walk. Staff were friendly, hotel was clean and comfortable. Chose to have the buffet breakfast; plenty to choose from although some items could have been hotter!

The location of the property close to the Central rail station and with easy access to services and shops was great. The staff were extremely friendly and always available. We spent six nights on a holiday and would definitely stay again!

We were very impressed with this hotel. It is in a great central location, close to Capitol Theatre, Chinatown, Darling Harbour, plenty of parking with easy pedestrian access into the hotel. Rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. We did not eat there so can't comment on the food. Would definitely stay again.

This hotel is typical of the Novotel standard in that it is clean, comfortable and affordable. It is located within easy walking distance of Chinatown and the Central railway station. We had two queen beds when we stayed with our two grandchildren and the only issue was that, while it was adequate, the bathroom was on the small side. The highlight of our stay was the excellent buffet breakfast.

Great staff, great facilities and the perfect spot to see all Sydney has to offer. Clean quiet and very comfortablerooms. Excellent buffet breakfast and restaurant. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and will continue to use it as our home base when in Sydney.

We enjoyed our room with a balcony, the outdoor pool, the staff was very kind and the Breakfast was amazing everyday, quick service and always a nice selection! Great Location in Sydney! We had a little trouble with understanding the parking garage process, but other than that, no complaints.

Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. The location was quiet, but convenient to Darling Harbor and the train station. The breakfast and meals in the restaurant were delicious with lots of variety. The view from the room could have been better, but the hotel has no control over the messy aparment balconies next door.
