    Exceptional 10.0
    Great spot to stay
    We stayed three nights at the Sofitel for a family wedding. The view over Darling Harbour was magnificent, the room was spacious and comfy, and the hotel was close to everything we needed. A wonderful way to be spoilt!
    Stephen, auFamily trip
    Good 6.0
    Not as great as expected
    Perhaps it’s just busy because of Vivid but there were long queues at check in, lifts, breakfast - just not a great experience for a five star hotel. The room was comfortable but noisy from crowds and music outside. Great location for the convention centre and the breakfast staff were lovely.
