Stayed 2 nights over the Easter break and had another great stay. This is a really good hotel to stay in and we love it. Always well priced with breakfast included, nice new rooms, great location with the "Darling Square" night vibe, terrific pool and Gym, very friendly staff. Accor should be very proud of this hotel and we will be back for sure. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay another good one.

We had a lovely room overlooking the Chinese Gardens. Room was very clean & housekeeping did a great job every morning. The Pumphouse bar & restaurant next door is used for dinner. We had a lovely meal there one night & Accor pus members can use your discount there. Breakfast was in the hotel dining area & cooked to order which was excellent. All staff we encountered at reception & dining were extremely friendly & efficient. The hotel is close to Darling Harbour,China town,Haymarket & public transport. We had a lovely stay & will definitely return.

Easy walk from light rail. Good access when travelling to Sydney via train. Complimentary drinks to Accor members. No toaster was disappointing. Lovely shower and bathroom. Bed was very comfortable along with large TV which included Fox. Breakfast was nice and Pumphouse restaurant attached provided good food in a pub environment.

Stayed at the Hotel for a couple of nights over the Easter weekend, which of course meant that the hotel was very busy. Overall we had a great stay, staff were very friendly and helpful on check in and our room, which overlooked the Chinese Gardens, was spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable (bed was too hard for me personally, not normal for an Accor property). The location is perfect, lots of choice for restaurants, Darling Harbour close by and Central station an easy 10 minute walk away. Highly recommend if you are looking to stay in this area.

I booked this hotel as a surprise getaway after I proposed to my partner in the afternoon. I did request a nice view or have something special done for us at the hotel however we were not put in a nice view room and nothing was done special which was the letdown because we have celebrated other special days at other hotels and have also had something little done like a bottle or champagne to celebrate, some chocolates on the bed and even an upgraded room. I thought the note I left when I booked shouldn't have been missed but this may have been the case. Even when we checked in the staff member was not overly friendly.
