Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oaksy Excellent service and facilities
I've stayed at holiday inn darling harbiour several times during my visits to AUS. I love the location just in front of ChinaTown. Access is easy to all the sydney attractions including the entertainments centre. The monorail is just a few metres from the hotel. The hotel is very clean and friendly and that suits me as a lone business traveller. My only gripe with all the Australian hotels is the varying pricing structure. When I checked the hotel prices the Holiday Inn was the best value quality hotel in the harbour area. Breakfast is really good quality but can be very busy and sometimes there's a queue for tables. Earlier the better to avoid the queues! Good food and cold beer is available from the bar. Favourite beer from the bar for me is 'blonde.' This hotel is my first choice in the harbour area subject to price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jaislar Friendly , helpful staff, clean rooms
Holiday Inns always seem to be in very convenient positions.
There is never a doubt about a comfortable bed. They are super comfortable and the pillow menu is an added bonus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Krugs Great service at counter
The room always clean and fresh on my stay of 12 nights, and after each days work it was enjoyable to have a quite drink or two.I think the girl at the drink area name was Saliegh or somethink like that, great friendly service by all of the food and bar service.
I used my 25% voucher for the 12 nights -- excellent deal, would recommend Priority Privilege to anyone, great value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Johnofwoo Quiet rooms in good location
The hotel is in a good location close to Chinatown and easy walking distance to Darling Harbour and the city centre. The room was a family room that was comfortable. It was quiet with no outside noise to be heard. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kimbull Comfortable bed, but don't over brew the breakfast tea!
People are what make a stay great, your people are the element missing in many places. Yes, whilst your rooms are ready for a redecoration they are not a shambles, the hall carpets near replacing, and just hot water and tea bags selection instead of over brewed tea in a thermos would be excellent ..........but hands down your staff were brilliant!
Ps some instructions for the spa would be useful too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bobroomnumber Bed too hard service not the best
The room was aged. As a platinium IHG member I expected the basic services to be good. House keeping did not make up my room one day and when I called to ask about it I was pretty much told. Bad luck!!!! House keeping have gone home. I requested additional linen so I can clean the room my self and they didn't give me a bed sheet even though I requested one. I requested a shaving kit and tooth brush to be placed in my room ever day, this was not done and I had too keep calling reception every morning to get one and wait, because of this I had to wake 30 minute early every day so I am not late getting to work. The bed was very hard and did not get a good nights sleep.

Great location near China Town, Paddys Markets and a easy walk to Darling Harbour and its Shops and Restaurants. Monorail station on the doorstep.
Hotel rooms have been refurbished in recent years and are fairly comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MikO Staff most helpful and courteous
Although age is showing in this fine establishment, it does not lack for old style courteousness and friendly staff. This was paramount in enjoying the stay. Additionally, the locality is an absolute plus, situated adjacent to the Entertainment Centre and half a block to Chinatown. George Street is only 100 metres.

This was our 3rd stay at Darling Harbour Holiday Inn and we will choose it again in the future. The location is so close to so many places. Walking distance to most attractions and CBD. Also a good walk to Circular Quay with plenty to see on the way.
The hotel staff are excellent - each one we encountered was obliging, pleasant, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Meals in both restaurants are excellent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mowff below average
I was expecting more from Holiday Inn this time. Every thing was below the average. You have to pay even for the internet and the rate was high as well. The breakfast is also expressive and the buffet is not that rich, such as , no cheese!!!
The room was good but looks too old and A/C was not cool. The toilet is so boring.
The staff are not helpful, I asked for a room service and took long time to be done.
The gym make you upset at the time that you want to relax and to refresh.
As a four star hotel, I was expecting more from Holiday Inn as I visited other Holiday Inn around the World but really this one was not a good experience for me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mikeK my recent visit
Well, this one was a surreal experience. I normally join my brother, and we stay for a few days. Well, he had a problem several days after I booked, he broke his leg, and could not join me.When I arrived , I advised the desk that I needed to change my booking if possible. Not only did they help with that problem , they pointed out that I had booked for 3 days starting on a Saturday, but i arrived on Friday. Nothing was a problem, expertly and promptly sorted. I am glad I have been a Priority Member for some years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mmatsup Excellent service & every requirement met.
We have stayed at this hotel many times & will be very happy to do so again. The service is excellent, efficient & friendly and staff are always eager to please, courteous & nothing is too much trouble.
We particularly appreciate those little extra touches, such as choice of pillows, bath robes & slippers & free magazines & papers.
The only negative we have found is the fee for using the in-room computer connection which seems a little excessive.
We are very much looking forward to our next stay at the Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by countrybumkin excellent, competent concierge staff! Well done guys!
Really enjoyed our stay. Just had an issue with a "lost " parking ticket from our room but the staff, especially the concierge staff and management more than made up for our mishap. Good to know that they went beyond the call of duty to help us out. Rooms were clean and tidy, bathrooms were tidy (smelled a little of fresh paint). All in all pretty comfortable for 2 adults and 2 children on a budget. The best part is location and service. Special mention again to the concierge staff, management and food (breakfast) staff at Shipleys. A great time was had by all. Thanks Holiday Inn Darling Harbour!
