Another incredible stay with the Hyatt once again living up to it's usual very high standard of service providing my valued guests and myself, the very best of everything from the point of check in right through check out. The service and unwavering support and assistance afforded by Management and staff is unsurpassed. Great work Jane, Moritz, Nitin and TEAM. You do indeed do The World of Hyatt proud. Man thanks once again

Sukhvinder S. Couples - 28/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very fast and professional service 3rd floor restaurant has good ambiance and reasonably fast service but main course does not come with sides so found it not filling Buffet spread for breakfast was very small and hardly any Asian cuisine especially when compared to other Sofitel Hotels like Sofitel Nusa Dua Bali…..

Pure luxury

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Nancy Business - 28/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

There is a reason that the Sofitel has the beautiful reputation that it has, and that is because it’s amazing teams go above and beyond for their customers. I only had one night here, but I was shown so much care and attention. From the Concierge team (Luis especially) who helped me with my luggage, parking and boxes, to the restaurant team who were wonderfully attentive and even expressing interest in the book I was reading. So many other wonderful little experiences that show you what true luxury is. Merci beaucoup!

Great stay

John D. Couples - 28/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very basic room for the price. Staff are always very nice. On our 30th wedding Anniversary I thought they may have upgraded us as we stay their ever year. Disappointed.

Dear Mr D., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. I appreciate you providing the feedback as it always allows us to improve. As much as we always endeavour to upgrade, regrettably we were fully booked on that Saturday with no rooms to upgrade to however for your next stay, please reach out in advance so I can assist with securing a nice room. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Scott Bear Front Office Manager

The most incredible view and facilities spoilt with (overall) unpleasant customer service

Bonjour Mr. C., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour. I am sorry that your overall experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. It is disappointing to learn that the service you encountered was not worthy of the star rating of the hotel. Frankly, it is really embarrassing to have received such feedback from a elite platinum member as yourself. I trust the over charged amount has now been refunded but, completely understand the inconvenience and frustration this has caused. Please be rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. I have taken the liberty to appoint myself as your point of contact a the hotel and will ensure your future visits are problem free and pleasant ones. We appreciate you sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Mehul Desai Guest Experience Manager Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour

Nothing has changed since we last stayed 1.5 yrs ago. We felt so welcomed the moment we step in the door. Outside staff are fantastic in welcoming and makes you feel valued and just like living at home. I also nice to see that safety is been adhered to no exception on mandatory check in and wearing of face mask.

Beautiful location great rooms

We booked 1 night at Sofitel using our free stay from accor plus to celebrate the end of HSC exam for my son. Sofitel team make a great effort in decorating the room to surprised my son including the bonus free drinks voucher and upgrading our room as well. Unfortunately somehow its a bit hard to use the voucher as the bar in d lobby and pool was closed when we were there. We definitely enjoyed our stay at Sofitel.. and looking forward to come back next time. Thank you so much for making our son happy again after a very stressful exams.
