I loved everything about my stay. The staff were extremely professional and nothing was an issue no matter how tedious it might’ve seemed. I could not recommend the Darling high enough to anyone I know. All staff treat you as if you were royalty and the rooms were extremely well put together. Every thing is extremely clean and always well presented

I paid much more than I normally would for the penthouse complete with a billiard table room. You can understand I was a bit disappointed when we say a massive cut in the felt on the table taped up with standard masking tape...

Amazing hotel let down by service
Fantastic hotel with great pool and rooms that have everything. The one disappointment being we arrived to check in at 3.30pm, having been told check in is from 3pm only to be told our room wasn’t yet ready. Nothing was offered to help accomodate us in the meantime, we had to ask if we could change and use the pool in the interim, were told we’d have to pay cash for any food or drinks since we hadn’t checked in. For a hotel that charges what the darling does this is well below expected service levels. Once we finally got into our room the stay was very enjoyable but that initial exchange means next time we’re looking to stay somewhere on the Gold Coast I’d likely look elsewhere.
