I had a very comfortable stay here.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The property itself is newly renovated and everything is very clean.
A really nice lobby area where you can relax by the fire with a drink. I would recommend!

As Platinum IHG Rewards members, we were upgraded to a suite. Our suite was newly refurbished and quite nice. It had a spa bath which was big enough for two. It also had a living room, but the lack of windows here made it a bit dark. Still, it was nice to have two rooms.
The bedroom was nicely decorated, though the views of the car park are nothing to get excited about. Service was fine, though not super-abundant or friendly. Australian wages are high and make it expensive for hotels to take on enough staff.
The location of the hotel is very good as it is very central to the Parramatta CBD, the railway station and the pier for ferries to the city.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OP85guy Very nice hotel, but plan on eating elsewhere
The hotel was very nice and in a good location, close to a big shopping center and 2 rail terminals.
However, the 27 AD charge for breakfast is outrageous and they only offered a limited buffet for dinner on Sat evening, at a much too high price.
There was also no recognition for PCR Platinum status.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrBusiness99 Internet and movie choice
Staying with you was a real pleasure.... Until it cam to ...
internet usage which for 2013 was very poor... In this day and age WIFI should be free for all guests - if you did that you would have my repeat business
To charge by the MB or slow to archaic speeds is a complete wind up.
Movie Choice was nothing short of terrible

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRH1 I will be back
Perfect for my needs. Easy access. Good parking. Quiet and comfortable.
Breakfast is good. In room dining is very good quality but limited choice.
Gym is small and I could not use it most evenings as the machines were both being used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrannySmith The Spoiling I Needed
I have been a lover of Holiday Inn for many years but my recent stay at Parramatta blew me away. Everybody, and I mean everybody went out of their way to make me feel as if I was someone special. The most outstanding of the staff were in the restaurant, I'm a fussy customer, but nothing was too much trouble and all done with warmth and care and the delightful young lady who brought milk to my room was really enjoying her job.
I've tried 5 and 6 star but they don't come close to the real caring the people at Parramatta showed. You can give lip service and say all the right things but if you don't mean it you might as well save your breath.
As big Arny would say I'll be back'. Thank you for a wonderful couple of days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shane034 Great Bed, comfortable room and convenient location
Our 3 night stay was in a king room, the bed was fantastic and the best night sleep we have had in sometime. The room was clean and the ensuite was more than adequate. The hotel was easy to get to and in a convenient location within Parramatta. I will be visting again. Thankyou

For family and social reasons I keep coming back to Parramatta and the staff support from the Holiday Inn check-in time, room service, and dining options was wonderful. Meeting up with old friends in the bar area with great cocktails was a bonus.
Big bath also a treat!

arrives in Sydney at 08.30 after travelling for 30hrs. arrived at hotel who informed me room could be ready for Noon. so got an early check in so could freshen up.
the hotel is a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Parramatta and the only down side is apart from the hotel bar and reasurant you only have the Irish Bar over the road.
staff very helpful and the food at breakfast very good with a large selection to choose from.
room was large clean and well equiped.
would stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PeterZ00 Expensive WiFi Access
The charges for WiFi are very high and quite out of step with most other hotels I visit in the World. I travel a great deal in Asia and rarely have to pay anything to access WiFi as it us usually part of the deal for the room (breakfast, WiFi, etc.). Staff were polite and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the room a good size. Some maintenance was required in the bathroom where the 'grab' rails were loose and the floor drain overflowed when having a shower. The location is convenient to shops and the railway station while away from the main road and relatively quite.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheTurners Great Office for 9 Days
We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Parramatta for 9 days whilst we were working at the Supershow in April 2013.
I have to say for a Holiday Inn it has already set itself a high standard. The front desk staff (Aaron) was extremely professional and remembered who I was from a visit the fortnight before. He had our room ready and paperwork already complete. That's the service I receive at an Intercontinental Hotel. Lauren who was one of the waitresses couldn't do enough for you and with a beautiful smile.
We stayed in a suite which gave us enough space to work in. The room was clean and bed was comfortable.
The hotel has only recently been taken over within the last 7 months and it would definitely have to be one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed at within Sydney.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cheese827 Hope you like waiting
I have stayed here a couple of times in the past few months and find the rooms of a high quality. However if want a quick breakfast downstairs in the dining room forget it. Too many tourist groups have taken over the hotel and you sometimes have to wait for both a seat and the buffet to be re-stocked. Frustratiing for someone on business trips.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jo73 Room booked not available
I booked my room with two double beds before I got there. When I arrived to the hotel they told me that my room was not available and the only room they could offer me was with one big bed plus a sofa bed! It was not a good start. I am not going back there. I am usually staying in Sydney in diferrent hotels and I wanted to try this one but my experience was not good. They also don't offer a complementary machine coffee with the buffet breakfast.

I have just experienced the highest customer service/care from all the team at Holiday Inn Parramatta. Recovering from an operation I was treated like Royality. I would like to thank the wonderful Managers & their excellent team for everything they did for me. Thank you so very much again & kind regards Julie B - from WA.

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.

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!

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.
