- Very friendly and helpfull staffAll staff from check in to check out, dinning room and bar were very friendly and professional. Special mention to reception lady who was very courteous… and helpful. Room was adequate in size and clean. bathroom roomy. Very quiet, no outside noise. Breakfast was good, with a variety of different dishes but not great, when you consider it cost $70 for two. Great location if you are in the area to watch either a concert or a sporting event.
- Very dissappointed on our return visit to the resaurantWe were in Sydney for a family event and invited the family to dine with us at the Pullman as we had dinner there last year and it was excellent. At… that time we enjoyed the food ,the atmosphere and the bar service and had recommended it to others when travelling. This time however, the service was poor, the meals we over priced and under delivered, the service was very poor and the attitude of the staff appear to be nothing less than disinterested across the entire restaurant. We persevered and went to the bar for after dinner drinks. My sister in law and I have a tradition of having a toblerone cocktail together, and we knew they had great ones at this bar. I order them and they came out like nothing had seen, they actually had crunchy bits in them. I returned them and the young male bar attendant tried to make me something else but I asked him to make us the cocktail we had asked for. The second time they came out like a caramel milkshake, so I returned them and advised we would not have anything to drink. I felt that he did not know how to make the drink, and a simple admission of this would have sufficed the first time, or a google search to find out how to do it would have fixed the problem, but the attitude was that I need to have a more modern drink, like an espresso Martini. I make them at home myself with cold drip coffee so did not need to be advised that this is what I should be drinking. A little honesty would have gone along way and a big shift in attitude for this young man and indeed the entire staff would have made the experience bearable. We won't be coming back.
- High price tagWe stayed here for one night when in town to see a concert. Having stayed at all the other hotels in Olympic Park we decided to treat ourselves and stay… at the Pullman. Arriving we parked out front and took our luggage in whilst the car was taken to a car park. Check in was busy and only two staff members dealing with guests. We were given an 'upgrade', I'm still wondering what that actually was. Our room was pretty standard, the bathroom was quite large though and had a full sized tub which was nice. The king size bed was two beds pushed together, which is the case in many hotels but the gap and the lean of the beds made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. There was also a large desk and plenty of power points to recharge devices. Breakfast was a buffet and was as good as most other hotels. This hotel was not what I was expecting...it really is not much different to the other two main hotels at Olympic Park except the price tag is much higher. The Pullman is not value for money, the Novotel and the Ibis across the road offer very similar for a lot less cash.
