I was assigned this hotel for the 14-day mandatory quarantine. From the moment I arrived, the staff ensured my stay was not just comfortable but enjoyable and memorable. From virtual events (trivia, bingo, competitions), to the food (catered to your preferences and with lots of variety and quality ingredients), service (always friendly, knowledgeable and timely) and the room itself was spacious, clean, with a comfortable bed, sofa and all of the amenities. I was lucky enough to also have a view. The staff were also extremely responsive with providing extra supplies (towels, coffee, tea). I would recommend this hotel to any traveler and will certainly stay here on a future visit. Great location, close to everything and a top quality hotel all-round. A special thank you to Vicky on the team who went above and beyond and to all who made my stay the best possible.

Since the night of 30th april, I have been quarantining at Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour. We were informed that for the first two days, hotel has already fixed a menu and they will be sending menu with 2 options for the coming days. The first 2 days were a hit and miss. It was understandable that the hotel was playing safe and be respectful to each of the guest's preferences by providing simple dishes, mostly vegetarian. I had informed the reception desk that i eat only fish and chicken and requested them to exclude beef and lamb from the menus they send. I also informed them that Monday is my fasting day and i was happy that they sent many choices in fruits and yogurts for me. However, Tuesday morning took a turn when i received menu for Friday with either Beef or veg option. I called the reception to ask if they could send another menu with chicken/fish option but they simply said that i could order out or choose the veg option. Having to stay at Novotel, I was expecting the hotel to address my preferences. Having to quarantine alone is already stressful and not getting the right options for lunch or dinner is even more stressful. I am hoping you would review your policy and provide additional options for people who do not eat beef or lamb due to personal/religious reasons.

If you are assigned to this hotel for 14 days of quarantine, be kind to the staff, who have been living through it for nearly a year. Hospitality personnel like to make people happy; their options for doing so in this situation are extremely limited. Instead they become the brunt of the inmates' frustrations. During my stay, the food was prepared in the hotel kitchen and was decent. Staff did their best to accommodate dietary and other requests and quickly brought up items delivered form outside. I was particularly grateful for the friendly assistance I received at checkout. I phoned the hotel later and was told it was likely Edwin or KanWeh that had called a cab and helped with suitcases. I would use this Novotel again for a regular short stay.

I had planned a detailed review of our experience in quarantine here, but the reviewer SimonB below has pretty much said it all. I'll admit we got lucky in some respects, we were travelling as a couple (the only couple on our bus) so were allocated a larger room than normal, overlooking the harbour, by the wonderful Guest Experience Manager Andrew Austen. He welcomed all of us on the bus and gave a detailed run down of what to expect (including the NSW Health rules on alcohol so no idea what the other bloke below is whinging about) and made clear that whilst they understood that quarantine will never be the greatest experience that they would help us in any way that they could, and that the staff were grateful to keep their jobs in the pandemic. Food was generally excellent; we rated all the meals as 7/10 or higher with a few 10s sprinkled in. The ravioli with industrial grade parmesan was the only stinker but in 2 weeks that's not bad going. Service was excellent; any time we asked for something it was provided within max. 10 minutes, usually quicker and the switchboard staff were always pleasant and cheerful. All in all a far, far better experience than we had been expecting, to the extent that if and when we ever return to Sydney in normal times we will make sure to return, if only for a night. Many thanks to all the staff who worked so hard to make it bearable.
