Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loz22 Excellent stay in a great easy location
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Parramatta a few weeks ago and it was a really fantastic experience. Was greeted with exceptional customer service upon arrival, and throughout my stay the customer service maintained professional and warm.
The room was a good size - the bathroom was a little smaller than I had imagined but still had ample space. The bathroom accessories eg. the shampoo, soap etc were to die for! awesome products! :)
The food was good, not fantastic, but really high up there. we ordered room service a couple of the times and it was super fast, and lovely staff to deal with. Thank you.
Thanks for an enjoyable time away, will defiantely recommend this hotel to all my friends.

I am a regular visitor to this hotel. I am remembered and greeted warmly. Refreshing to note that I also see 1 time international visitors greeted in exactly the same way. Exceptional.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by djdcns Comfortable bed but lacks lounge chair
Check in and check out were efficient but lacking in any warmth or welcome. The room furnishings were good, the bed was comfortable but the room lacked a lounge chair. The glass topped desk and 'office' chair may be fine for those who want to work but nor so fine for those, like me, who just want to relax,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Abbiemwk Ok-ish for price
Yes I have recommended this hotel - but given not such a great review, because at the end of the day even though our experiance wasn't that bad for the price we paid...
We love the Holiday Inn Hotel chain & this would have to be the most less than desirable hotel we have stayed in.
Most of the staff were awesome.
The rooms aren't as nice as some of the others we've stayed in - the first room we were put in stunk! (it was clean though)
It was a cross between damp/old aircon/gross carpet/last guest smell.... I think it was an old smell.
The room we were shifted into had the same smell, but it wasn't as strong - nothing an airfreshner couldn't mask....
The buffet breakfast was alright, again not as good as the others we've visited, one disappointment was no esspresso machine...
Also no Gluten Free meal option for Children's meals. And the room service states full service until 11pm - but in reality it finishes before 10:40pm, as we found out the hard way, we couldn't even get an icecream sundae....
My daughter enjoyed the pool & pool area.
And the location was very handy!
I was quite disappointed with the overall experiance, however it has not put me off the chain, as this was the first bad experiance we've had staying at the Holiday Inn in our family's 15 years of travel - Parra lift your game!

Priority club seems to mean little is Australia - no perks whatsoever.

We booked a king bed suite which had a bedroom and separate lounge area. It was modern and very clean. The staff were lovely and the breakfast and dinner were enjoyable

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mountainlake Great place in downtown Parramatta
I had a meeting in Parramatta so decided to stay at the Holiday Inn, where I am a Gold member. They upgraded me to a suite, which was really appreciated as I was travelling with my family. The service was absolutely fantastic - the front desk staff were eager to help with everything, from offering to print me a map to show me how to get to IKEA to arranging a late checkout. The breakfast buffet was excellent although really pricey ($26/person). Thankfully my daughter ate for free. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice. My only complaint is that the pool was not heated as advertised, so my daughter was very disappointed. Overall, a great choice for downtown Parramatta, and I would certainly return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joytee4 excellent bed/pillows and ambient decor
as i went to relax, the room was very appropriate for that reason. value for money - all the staff were helpful and the facilities, like the gym and pool were easily accessible. perhaps the bathroom could be cleaned up - new tiles in the shower area or cleaned with anti=mould preparation. altogether though, it was as i had desired from a holiday inn venue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bionicboy Staff were superb
My seven year old daughter loves staying in this hotel, i put that down to how personable the staff are, always willing to include her in conversation and make her feel special. Each time i have stayed the rooms have been excellent, food has been great and the staff always willing to help.
Will stay again...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy25 Comfortable bed, spacious room
Great location, near shops and town centre, with access to ferry buses and trains to Sydney. Staff were friendly, and it was very enjoyable stay for the two weeks. The room was spacious, but the room was set out more for the business traveller, than the holiday maker.

We stayed at the Parramatta HI twice during our Australian vacation. Great place to stay. Close to the train station, great coffee, and the restuaarant/bar across the street.
The staff was attentive and our requests at the front desk were dealt with promptly. Should we get back to Australia . . . . we'll be there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keir Promising start for a new HI
All staff very nice and professional, without exception. It's a good hotel, the only quibbles are that the bathroom had a fair amount of obvious mould which is a bit off putting (rooms otherwise very clean#, and breakfast is expensive given it is a standard hotel buffet #other meals, on the other hand, were excellent and priced as you would expect).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ds999 good location, good food, helpful staff
easy access off western highway, only 5 mins walk from parramatta bus/train station. large well lit reception/bar area with open plan restaurant leading to big patio area.
staff very helpful - rooms average size but well appointed with flat screen tv, fridge, tea and coffee makers etc
food in restaurant very good and reasonably priced
brekky good and varied but ambitiously priced

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MrsMurphy1981 Not a pleasant stay!!!
Went to stay for a honeymoon and ordered the special package... Advertised for 150 dollars cheaper than was actually charged... Not as accessible as I was told and some of the night staff just rude and had no idea.... I will never ever be staying there ever again.... They ruined what was supposed to be a magical night for myself and my husband!!!!

Haveing stayed at a number of propertys as a gold priority member this one didnt meet my expectations / the room was ok the bed was good but the bathroom was dated 4 wot was promoted as a new holiday inn the room service menu was most expensive compared 2 all other sydney sites with the take out dine in style menu with no tray charge this could be a much better opyion 4 this site the breakfast buffet was minimal in selection and over priced 4 wot was on offer the layout of foyer was quite inviteing decor very nice but overall not the best experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PHCON Great location
Happy to stay again with kids, the bathroom needed some work...but the rest of the motel was looking really nice (coming along well) Breakfast was not bad but got very busy - lack of space for everyone. great priced carpark and nice and safe!
over all 80/100 !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noverton Pity about the centralised booking process
I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions before it was taken over by Holiday Inn and have always found it to be a comfortable, good value hotel, conveniently located for where I have to go. The food is excellent and good value. I have never before experienced problems with my booking prior to Holiday Inn taking over - I just rang the hotel directly and booked a room which suited me. This time, I was diverted to the central booking service for Holiday Inn and ended up speaking to an irritating woman in the UK. She had never even heard of Parramatta and took a while to find the hotel on her computer or whatever. I then asked for a tariff which included breakfast and was assured that this was what I had booked. However, when we came down to breakfast the next morning, we found that we had been given a room only deal. What a pity we have lost the personal approach and can't even deal with someone in our own hemisphere, let alone the actual hotel.
