Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by catew Pleasantly surprised
Excellent, efficient and proactive staff, good location close to transport into the city, plus the airport (but not noisy) and well maintained. Very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kayt Clean and convenient but ....
I was a female travelling on my own, and I have found that a bar with stools along it is a great way of meeting people, sometimes it's nice to simply chat with the barman, happy hours are also a good drawcard. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful but whilst I saw other people on their own there was no opportunity to enjoy each other's company. A complimentary 10 minutes of wifi is available in the reception area but this is totally inadequate for business people or single travellers - I detest hotels who charge for wifi access! I loved the idea of a soft or hard pillow option but a choice of quilt or light blanket would also be great because the quilt was far too warm to sleep under. I found the bed too soft with the feather underlay but that is a personal preference because I've had spinal surgeries and now require a firm bed. It isn't a cheap place to stay but convenient, safe, friendly and comfortable.

My wife and I have just returned from a holiday in Queensland flying from Sydney. We stayed at the Holiday Inn overnight before the flight and left our car at the hotel for the nine days we were away. The room was even better than we expected, the staff were friendly and efficient, we enjoyed the dining experience and the availability of the parking service made our holiday planning simple and carefree.
We have stayed at the hotel before, will do it again and would not hesitate to recommend the service to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wateratz Great service
I have used this hotel a number of times, mainly because I catch the early morning flight back to New Zealand, and it's proximity to the airport affords that little extra sleep time.
The staff on the front desk are always so friendly and helpful, and provided there are no others waiting for service, they are always keen to engage in intelligent conversation (Eg; the benefits of an Airbus A380 over a 747!) In one case, I was offered a "check in on-line" to save me doing it myself because I'd not brought my own laptop
Little touches like that help ensure a repeat stay, as going back to the Holiday Inn is sometime like going back to a home away from home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandyK Clean comfortable room and great service
Stayed overnight for an early morning international flight departure. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Facilities were great and the breakfast was excellent. Great advantage to know the car is secure and no problems with parking. Shuttle bus going to airport was great, but disappointed with it on return visit.
I know it is a different company, but a late pick up and a grumpy unpleasant driver, who was unhelpful to those who needed it, was not needed for tired travellers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richard78 great location, great service
the location of this hotel could not be better. walking distance to the train with easy access to the CBD, and only minutes from the airport. fantastic service, and the food was always great, and over the course of my stay, i tried just about everything!
some of the fixtures could be updated, but everything is clean and tidy, and well maintained.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lu772 Quick stopover, and found room comfortable, and relaxing.
WE had a nice stay here for a short stay, and have stayed before--room was a corner, and not so big but still quite nice. Shuttle bus a bit slow picking us up! The meal was very nice--had the fish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Summo Quality accommodation
Pleasant and obliging staff, clean premises and comfortable room combine to make this an excellent hotel. Food and beverage is good and there is plenty of parking. Only gripe is the shower over the bath, but everything else makes this a minor irritation. My Sydney airport hotel of choice in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noah1081 stopover
Good property as a stopover for an overseas holiday - we have used it often mainly for its nearness to Sydney airport. However when the new hotel is built actually at the airport and the cost is reasonable we may be tempted to stay there for its better convenience. The Holiday Inn may need to look at its rates and charge for shuttle - even though i know that is another company.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NewlyWeds Impressed by personal touch
We stayed at Sydney Airport HI for 1 night before returning to Canada at the end of our honeymoon. After such a long trip, we were looking forward to finally going home. Usually the last hotel you stay in on a long trip, is an airport hotel. Typically bland and impersonal, that last hotel tends to be the worst of the whole trip.
We were very pleased with the hotel, clean/modern/spacious and were thrilled by the staff at the front desk. Within minutes of checking in, some one from the front desk personally delivered a bottle of spakling wine with a handwritten card that was signed by the entire reception team. Very cool.
Nice choice of pillows, well-priced bar menu. My only suggestion would be to improve the water pressure for the shower.

The Hotel is smoke free but people is allow to smoke just outside its gate. There are cigarette ash trays even. This is very unhealthy, anconfotable and it contradict the smoke free slogan of the Hotel.

The reason for choosing this hotel was because of the offer of stay park and go package. Great idea and made out travel that so much more relaxed not having to worry about parking at the airport

After travelling from Seoul via Singapore to Sydney it was pleasing to be upgraded to a suite and very comfortable. Having lived on Korean Food for two weeks as an Aussie I am sure you would appreciate visiting the Hotel Restaurant and enjoy a great steak.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MarkK Room booking
Booked a room with 2 queen beds, but was downgraded to 1 queen and a double. The final bill reflected the wrong rate and it was not a great experience having to rectify this early in the morning before heading off to the airport. I am a Priority member and felt like this did not matter. I stay in motels often and this was one of qthe worst Holiday inns as far as value of money and booking honesty was concerned

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Voyager Difficult to find courtesy bus
Hotel needs to provide clearer directions as to how to get to bus stop for courtesy bus and how often it comes to airport on its website.
Also it would be good if the kettle in the room could be used ie flex needs to be long enough to reach a power point.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mark77 Great Hotel with one flaw
The Sydney Airport Holiday Inn is an excellent hotel in a great location for access to both the airport and the Sydney train system. The room was clean and comfortable. Additionally, it was very quite given the close proximity to both active runways.
There is one area that travelers must consider. The airport shuttle is independent of the HI. Based on my experience, they are unreliable. The bus arrived 10 minutes late (on a 20 minute rotation). He then left the property 15 minutes late only to circle the block returning to the HI. My only guess was that he was trying to get back on schedule at my bus loads expense. Either allow thirty minutes extra or take a taxi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bo2077 comfortable bed but remember to bring your own first aid kit
simple accommodation close to the airport. The gym is rudimentary and the pool looks like a small navy blue child's pool shaped in a small kidney shape. There is a small dry sauna attached to the gym.
The rooms were comfy and clean. The bed had two types of pillow - soft and firm, a nice touch. Relatively well priced for the long weekend.
Staff were friendly, but could have been a bit more helpful. I had a throbbing headache the night of my stay, and was disappointed to find that staff couldn't get any panadol, and would not even if they could for giving headache pills put them at risk of liability. Well so was my headache.
Meals were a bit too expensive.
Overall comfortable bed and good for a nights sleep.
