The hotel was lovely and the rooms spacious with big comfy beds. We couldnt have breakfast in hotel due to covid restrictions and spa fully booked. They should encourage you to book those on booking hotel room.

Close to restaurants and Casino! While still being attached, it felt only a little so! Part of the the Casino, but still feeling a little separate! And once you got your bearings, that works well for me!

We recently stayed here over the weekend and I just want to extend my many thanks for providing us with the most perfect getaway. From the moment we checked in, we just knew that the service and experience was going to be nothing short of impeccable, and that it was! The rooms, amenities and ambience were fantastic. We were really taken care of throughout and whilst overseas travelling is off the cards for now, this was the most wonderful staycation needed and we definitely feel relaxed after this weekend away! Honestly, thank you so much once again, we have already rebooked another stay in November and really looking forward to it already.

My family and I enjoyed a nice stay at The Darling. We were warmly welcomed and appreciated the attentiveness and friendliness of staff. We were assisted with pleasure for any enquiries we had whilst also valued the privacy and quietness of our visit. Our room was clean as expected and spacious for our needs. Parking directions prior to arrival may have saved us some time. I also noticed there was an unusual smell of cigarettes on our floor however this did not dampen our experience.

Staff were great, very helpful in everyway we needed. A bottle of red wine was left with a birthday note for my partner as we were staying there for the night for her birthday. Very close to darling harbour will definitely stay there again.
