            Going home.

            You were giving my daughter and i a superior queen room when i booked a twin beds,so we have to stand there nearly begging to get the room we want it, we were not very impressed with the first 15 minutes of the stay there,it was supposed to be a relax weekend for the 2 of us.,and the room we got was very unconfortable,going up and down the steps with suitcases or going to bathroom at night time.

            Toilet didn't flush properly, room was small, food and beverages were expensive, no mini bar unless you ordered it after arrival.

            For a budget priced hotel the Holiday Inn at Darling Harbour is excellent value. I had a Queen Deluxe Room. The bed was xxx comfortable with a choice of hard or soft pillows and the temperature of the room was perfect. I had one room service meal which was excellent and served by a most personable lady. I attended a concert just across the road at the Entertainment Centre which was very convenient. Altogether a good experience. I would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to my friends and family.

          • Family with children

            Good location,safe and room very clean everyday.

            JBs staff were excellent, helpful and courteous. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great location. We booked 2 nights and ended up booking a 3rd.

            tv reception was ok but not great, our fridge was not cold or freezing the ice trays.We told reception who said they would get someone to look but it still did not freeze. On leaving hotel my partner mentioned that the fridge or freezer still did not work properly and the reply was ' you could have come down for ice.' He was not happy since we had told staff 3 times during our stay.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Good location just close to everything I like to visit

          • Family with children
            5.8

            The location is very good and 5 min walks to Darling Harbour

            They gave me a very bad and dark twin room in the first night. When I said that I have already booked a double bedroom not a twin bedroom , thay said that the hotel is full and tomorrow we will change your room.2- The hotel staffs were not enough friendly.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Excellent room size, comfortable and spacious. Adequately equipped with good bathroom. Good professional service from staff.Bar was fine, did not use the restaurant facilities.

            The monorail passed right outside our bedroom window, thanks to the double glazing we did not hear it but privacy was slightly copmpromised.
