The stay, the staff, the covid practice, the room, the view, the comfort were all perfect. Let down by the food & the cost of it.

Davos 0. Couples - 07/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We received a room upgrade on check-in and a small gift for our anniversary. For dinner we dined at Atelier and were treated like royalty. When we returned to our room we realised the TV didn't work and was frozen to the home page. A call to the front desk resulted in Max attending our room and trying to rectify the problem with the TV. Unable to do so we were changed to another room and upgraded again to a Prestige Suite. The room was absolutely wonderful- one of the best we've stayed in around the world. We would like to thank Max for everything he did for us and all the other great staff at the hotel. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra 2 days.

Bonjour Mr. F., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team and Max in person. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our ambassadors as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Mehul Desai Guest Experience Manager Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

Suzanne Families - 30/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed as a family of four in a room overlooking the harbour. It was a delight until checkout where we had to fight for a refund on the breakfast which we were unable to have with the area closed due to COVID. They did not communicate that you could have breakfast in the room and by that time we had checked out.

Bonjour Suzanne, Thank you for your feedback and i really appreciate you taking the time to review your experience! it is really sad to hear you had a great stay which was ruined by the check out experience. I’m sorry that this tarnished your stay and the correct information was not explained to you regarding the breakfast. I hope thos experience does not deter you from returning and we look forward to another enjoyable stay for you soon. Kind regards, Scott Bear Front Office Manager

My daughter and I availed the Health Care Worker special rate and stayed 2 nights . We were given a beautiful room on the 24th floor with a beautiful view of the city. The room was new and beautifully decorated. It was beautiful sleeping at night and seeing the city lights from the large full length window.

WanHG21 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Was celebrating our wedding that weekend and decided to treat the wife with a spectacular stay in Sofitel Darling Harbour - also because we cant go anywhere! The wife loves the bath overlooking the harbour so we obviously had to book a room with a view ! The Sofitel team was extremely attentive to our requests and were on top of it, even gave me a courtesy call and SMS to ensure I was well taken care prior to my arrival. The SMS service was really good, I was able to check when my room was ready so I would make my way to the hotel. I was offered a refreshing drink while waiting to check in - love this ! Not many hotels do this these days and its a refreshing welcome ! Definitely makes you feel special! Shout out to Francisco for taking care of our special requests so well (or my wife's!) she was definitely over the moon with the Junior Suite room overlooking Darling Harbour with the beautiful bathtub! The Club Lounge was impeccable with good service and view. Highly recommended to stay at Sofitel, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion, its definitely worthwhile!

TonyDiz 19/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Due toaccessing a free ight through Advantage plus via the phone the online operator decided to give me 2 separate bookings. I should have questioned this as I found it meant 2 separate rooms over the 2 nights, not what my family had in mind at all! While other staff "ummed and aahed" Renato, a duty manager cut through the issue by ensuring we would be in one room for both nights at the standard of the paid night. This saved a degree of angst and allowed us to enjoy the trip and the hotel as we expected we would. All other aspects of the hotels operation were at the normal, high standard of Sofitel and it continues to be our families hotel of choice when in Sydney.

Very good!
