Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We didn't eat here because frankly the welcome we received when we walked in was one of the most aggressive, disappointing and rude of any pub we have ever walked into. Can't comment on the food, but certainly the service was enough to have us walking out the door never to return. Not sure if the tattooed dude is the owner or manager but really not the best advertisement for pleasurable dining experience. A definite hard no from us.

It was just after 5pm on a Thursday night and this place was hopping. Bar staff are ok, kinda interested in just serving than exuding personality. The beer range is fairly limited and a bit costly and the food is definitely 'pub fare' but there was plenty of it being served. Apparently there is a $10 steak lunch feature. There are several different rooms with a bistro area but the acoustics are dynamic so we struggled to converse. Patrons were happy and it was packed by the time we left so the Royal is attractive to many.

It's a large pub and restaurant venue, with friendly staff. It has several different areas, seems like fun and best of all the happy hour schooners (between 3-5pm) are only $4.50 which is very good value

I work at sydney uni and come here once or twice a month for the $10 steak lunch. It's always good- generous size steak cooked to order, nice fresh salad with dressing and a serve of chips. Includes a choice of sauces! The peppercorn one is severely tasty. They also do a great schnitzel with mash and always lovely fresh veg. I also appreciate the free filtered cold water, as I'm not a drinker. It's never going to be awarded a Michelin star but for the money, I think it's no. 1 for value!

Our organisation (a nationwide music fanclub with a reach of over 1000) hosted our quarterly member city catch-up over the weekend at this venue. This involved a casual meal and drink meeting over a video screening that we provided the equipment for. It was a daytime activity in the bright and airy upstairs function room, and pre-booked with their events manager for over a month. On arrival, we were greeted with blank looks from the staff who appeared uninformed of the function which was to take place between 2-6pm. The attitude of the staff on realising that it was actually a double-booking overlapping with another event starting at 5pm was to treat our organiser with what was overtly aggressive and rude behaviour, refusing to acknowledge their mistake (even on showing the email event confirmation). Instead, the weekend duty manager called their events manager who only works Monday to Friday an "idiot". Staff openly made poor comments about the event loudly in regards to our attendance in the downstairs bar in front of guests, and when the other party showed up at 5pm as we were winding up our event early, it was clear that they had blamed us for the room not being available and clean as I'm sure they had expected. This other party also carried on the attitude towards us and were clearly informed to blame us. Our event cleared out prior to the booking time at 5.15pm, but despite this, no indication was given that they were appreciative of our efforts to finish early. Given the outward rudeness and clear communication issues of their own hotel, I could not recommend the venue. Our organisation will not be returning, and will be making the same complaint directly to the venue.

3 of us all ordered the $10 Rump, it was big, the chips great, the salad fresh, now thats a happy meal. cooked perfectly, well placed city location for a quick good and cheap feed without being trimmed down. Imagine found this pub in hipster haven, good pub food done right, No one could fault the food. I say its the best meal i've eaten for ten bucks in the last 40 years, yes 40 years. if you can get better for $10 in Sydney speak up, tell me, if not, here it is, get there before everyone finds out and ther publican gets trendy greed.

I stayed at Park Royal, Darling Harbour for 2 weeks. Hotel was decent and very convenient to our offices. Laundry service was very reliable. Room was a reasonable size and most things worked. If something didn't work it was sorted promptly. Free bottle water replenished daily

The furniture is the new club rooms is funky and the bathroom is excellent, we stayed on Level 8 and the club lounge is on level 9. The idea of a "club room", with access to a Qantas Club like business lounge, is gaining currency in many hotels. I first tried it in KL and really liked it: which was the attraction of the "Club room" and why I booked it. The actual room we got looks metres away into a new block of new apartments (unoccupied still). It will be an interesting peep-show when they become occupied. The worst thing about the club room was the huge and heavy pillow on the bed, I really had once of the worst nights sleep and my partner and I both complained about the pillows. We can't believe how every other detail could have been considered only then for the hotel to buy the ugliest, heaviest and most uncomfortable pillows I've ever encountered! The bed was not much chop either. It should also be noted that it is (in practice) impossible to find your way into the hotel turning circle in anything other than a taxi. There is a single turning lane form the left side of the road across 3 lanes: impossible! Not a hotel for those with a car then!

The hotel was outstanding from the well-appointed room, the excellent business center, to the concierge service. .The hotel location also provided access to the DBC and the tourist sites.

Stayed in this hotel over the New Year period and it was quite busy at the time. Prices were also more expensive at this time but we got what we paid for in so far as the beds were clean and the bathroom was accesible, (though not located in the room) The hotel itself had a warm atmosphere, with a bar downstairs. Staff were friendly and helpful, though the cleaners were very quick to kick us out the following day before the expected check out time and repeatedly knocked on the door.
