Seasons Darling Harbour

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for an event at the International Convention Centre. The location was fantastic to the ICC, Darling Harbour, Dixon Street and the Chinese Gardens of Friendship. Here ends the story. I concur with one of the reviewers, the hotel is in a poor state of repair with dirty carpet, furniture chipped and tatty and a bathroom in need to some TLC. Beds were comfortable. Access to the underground parking was not easy and maneuvering down there was very, very tight, not to mention they charge $10.00 per hour for parking. You only receive 24 hours parking free which we were not advised of when we checked in. The swimming pool, gym and spa facilities were close until further notice. We were on the 8th Floor however there are no 4, 5, 6 or 7 floor in the elevator. If you can get over all this, it is a perfect location for this area.

This was supposed to be our finale to our 2 week holiday stay in a 4 star hotel. The hotel is in a poor state of repair with wavey dirty carpet, furniture is chipped and tatty. Roughly repaired walls and bathtub and the most horrible smell. We were not impressed. This is not a 4 star property it is barely a 3 star.

This place was average. There was mould on the walls, place needed a major paint job, bathroom needed renovating, tv servers went down the night we were there, wifi kept dropping in and out and you had to go to front reception to get another key in order to access the spa, pool, sauna and gym facilities. I hope to see this place improves in the future, but for now I would recommend going to places like the Meriton, where it is a fully furnished and renovated apartment as well as 5 stars.

Great rooms quiet and relatively close to the darling harbour ... and ferries restaurants etc China town just up the street and markets close by ... short walk to Victoria mall up hill though .. price was competitive

Checked in to the centrally located Seasons Darling Harbour, only to find a used condom on the floor of my room. Was promised a VIP clean, from the very helpful concierge staff, only to find the condom wrapper still on the floor the following day. While the concierge was very apologetic & helpful, the housekeepers should pick up their act

If you like Korean Hot Pot then this is the place for you! Purchased a Groupon booking for 2 rooms for 2 couples. We requested the rooms close together - they were at other ends of the hall, same floor at least. As soon as you enter the foyer, there is a smell, best described as bleached hospital corridor. The smell seemed to be a regular greeting to guests along with the dated and in desperate need of a clean and update check in desk. They 2 lifts were similar vain in needing a clean and update. I think an update may have started but never completed as there were marks and patches in the lifts (2). As we got to the 7th floor, a grubby and dirty hallway met us and it didn't get better from there. The smell in the hallway was strong and the Korean restaurants underneath one side of the hotel had a lot do so with it. There was marks and scuffs in the hallway together with a dark and dingy look. There was random little shelves with cups on them. I'm not really sure what they were for. As we enters the room we were disappointed and discussed walking out. Being school holidays we knew we wouldn't get much and in the location. The room was dated. Marks on the walls with holes that had been patched and not painted. Marks on the roof. The curtains didn't close fully. The mini balcony needed a clean and the weeds were enjoying the sunshine. The door to the balcony was very hard to open and close. The bedroom and bedding was clean however. The bathroom..... Oh dear. No ventilation. The cheap wooden finishes were peeling away. Dirty marks on the walls, floor and on the roof. If you want a shower, I wouldn't use the rubber bath mat. Yuk! Shower head was useless if you wanted to wash your hair. I'm 5'2 and I was taller than it. Hairdryer was filthy! Tiles and grout were missing and a power point over the toilet had a massive hole in it. Rooms weren't cleaned everyday. Stayed 3 nights only serviced once. Our friends room was a little better but for Darling Harbour accommodation was very disappointing. In good vicinity to China Town and the city centre and Darling Harbour. Extremely disappointing and will not be returning. When raising the concerns with staff, a roll of the eyes and change of subject is disappointing. Guests beware, maybe the Backbackers down the road may have been a better option!

Very dated rooms, uncomfortable bed, dirty net curtains, food items for sale in room were expired and what 4 star hotel still has shower curtains with a plastic non slip bathmat in the bath! Great location but not worth the $280 per night.

We had some travellers in from out of town and wanted them to have a few days to stay within the city and easy access to the harbour. What they got was a very run down place that looked like no one had bothered to take care of it. As if there was an absent landlord? We would not recommend to out of town people that wanted a taste of what Sydney has to offer.

We have just enjoyed a three night stop over in sydney and stayed at Seasons Darling Harbour. Without a doubt the hotel is quite rundown and in need of new flooring, fresh paint and bathroom reno's but this place can not be faulted for location and in room facilities. We were able to easily walk to all the main attractions, Darling Habour, The rocks, opera house, harbour bridge, circular quay, city centre, botanical gardens with a baby and four year old with us. The rooms were excellent for families with basic cooking facilities and sitting rooms so we could have friends visit. We were able to get interconnecting rooms for my mother-in-law which enabled my son to share her room. Also had a laundry where you could do your own washing for $3. Laundry was pretty dodgy but machines worked well.

On the plus side the staff were helpful and i checked in early plus the location is very convenient. However I was given a room overlooking a construction site. The fridge didn't work and was leaking water through out. The plugs in the room did not work and had clear signs of damage. The taps in the shower were damaged. The room was dirty (marks on the walls and bathroom floor not clean). The blanket on the bed was threadbare and I froze through the night. However by far the worst was the swimming pool. I thought there were branches in the bottom but on closer inspection it was massive clumps of human hair! The hotel put a $100 block on my credit card and told me it would take a few days to unblock. Even if I had everything in the mini bar it wouldn't have come up to $100! I decided against having breakfast
