Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jones2014 Comfortable, convenient but bring earplugs for breakfast!
Rooms are very good, comfortable with all necessary mod cons and received upgrade for stay - Platinum member. Location is very convenient, close to the airport although perhaps too close for taxi drivers' liking - alternative is rather infrequent shuttle bus -and only 5 minutes from Mascot train station, good for city although not for airport - extortionate A$10 increase on normal ticket price. Bar has good choice although closes at 11pm which seems early for a place that presumably has near 24 hour activity. Breakfast is by far the worst thing - selection is OK but ambience is one of the worst I've experienced anywhere, all down to a horrendously loud smoothie machine that of course is in constant use when the area is busy: bring earplugs!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 it does exactly what it says on the tin...
I have stayed here a few times when transiting from MEL to catch the early JAL flight to Toyko and I have always found this hotel to meet what I expect from an airport hotel.
By that I mean that it is not the best HI you will stay in but it is far from the worst. The staff at the reception area where excellent, in that they were helpful, knowledgeable with the right amount of self-depreciation (they know that they are not working in the Ritz) about the facilities.
The staff in the bar could have been a bit more attentive, but I did only get there around 10:30pm on a Friday night so they might just have been tired.
Beyond that I have certain expectations regarding a HI and a hotel at the airport and this hotel met them exactly.
The only 'negative' comment was that it is a hotel airport so the shuttle should really be free not $6 each way - its an airport hotel, so that should be factored into the cost. Asking someone to pay for an airport shuttle at an aiport hotel is gouging.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elena39 Very, very family friendly
Loved this hotel. Come here with my young son, and the staff were absolutely amazing with him from reception, dining and even the maintenance guys!! Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone with a young family who need to transit near the airport. The biggles café was really family friendly too. He even got an activity pack whilst we were there. Smiles all round.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Birchipboy Very convenient
Close to Sydney airport so convenient for a meeting of two travelers. Nice meal of a good sized portion at a good price. Unusual set up of the restaurant and a bit noisy for a discussion, but not too bad. Room was good in every way except for the mattress; certainly very clean and well set up to rest and relax before and after traveling.

Avoid some of the bar food, deep fried to death
You should consider serving starters and mains seperately in bar!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice hotel with a great attitude
The only downside to this location was the restaurant appearance and food quality could use improvement. Seeing as its location is across the street from Qantas HQ I would think that the food and restaurant would have been much better. Hope they improve this aspect and if so woudl have a world class experience.

Better than expected for an airport hotel. One night stay due to at 6.00am check-in for an international flight. Big modern well maintained room, friendly staff. Very close to airport but no noise. Less than 5 minute walk to railway station to catch the fast train into central Sydney.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helen47 Wonderful service
Stayed overnight before early departure for Bangkok.
Checkin was prompt and efficient, everything was ready for us although we were earlier than I had previously indicated to the hotel. As a gold PC member we were upgraded to a King room on the 10th floor and were greeted by name with a warm welcome, even though we were staying on points- something which has not always happened at other IHG properties. Staff at reception and in Sirocco were extremely efficient, friendly but not intrusive,well trained and willing to please. This was a great start to our holiday!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pkyellowgum great staff
I always like this hotel. It has some of the nicest staff anywhere in the world and they have always been so.
The hotelis the perfect spot to rest up duringtransit through Sydney and is far superior to the other offerings in the airport area.
It is probably a hotel for this purpose and hard to judge many other criterea as I am only PM to AM there as a rule.
The food was not that great at the bar,
Room service meals are quite good.
The wake up call was prompt and hand delivered

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tory62 Hotel in need of renovation
This hotel's rooms, hallways and workout area are in need of serious renovation. Our room was dingy, smelly and old. Spoke with front desk personnel once we saw our room. She said renovation for the second floor was going to begin within the next week. I asked to be moved to a better room, she said the hotel was totally full and she couldn't accommodate us. Upon checkout, I also spoke to a tall, thin gentleman working the front desk telling him how displeased we were with our stay. Safe to say we were very disappointed with our stay since Holiday Inn claims on the front of their Rewards Club brochure "Let's make every experience a rewarding one"

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Penthe Comfortable and easy place to stay near the airport
I've stayed at the Holiday Inn near the airport a few times to break up an international flight and returning to Canberra. I like it because it is so easy and comfortable. The hotel provides great beds for a post-flight sleep, excellent buffet breakfast and a completely hassle-free experience. The staff are friendly and chatty and the food in the restaurant and bar provides enough options for an overnight stay. My son likes it because of the big tellies.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gerich Enjoyable short stay
On arrival after a long drive and putting up with the Sydney traffic it was most enjoyable to enter the pleasant surroundings of the reception area. We were attended to most pleasantly after only a short wait and were then able to park our car and go to our room.
The room was larger than what I expected with a large bathroom that was very tidy and clean.
We had dinner in the restaurant where the food and the service was very good.
The next morning we left early on the shuttle bus for the airport. The driver was very friendly which always makes for a much more enjoyable drive to the airport.
Overall a most enjoyable short stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RCfromNorwalk Nice hotel and close to airport.
This Holiday Inn is just north of the domestic terminal of the airport. Upon arrival, the lobby is very clean and simply elegant. Real fruit infused water is waiting by the door, free for anybody. A restaurant is directly located to the right. My standard room with King bed wasn't ready and would have to wait 2 hours. I was sleepy but also hungry and the front desk clerk told me there was a Subway restaurant at the next light. After eating and walking around a bit, I came back and checked into my room. The room was spacious, clean and well organized. After a 3 hours of mid-day sleep, thanks to heavy curtains that can block out all the light, I was able to grab a hot shower. The bathroom was very clean and larger than most hotel bathrooms. The hotel is located 4 blocks west of a small commercial road with nice restaurants and grocery stores. Lobby loaned me a international adapter at no extra charge as long as I returned it before I checked out. I was able to check out early to catch my 7 am flight. As stated before, the hotel is north of the domestic terminal, so if you are taking a international flight, a shared shuttle will cost $15 AUD to get to the international terminal. You can also walk to the domestic terminal and pay $5 AUD to get to the international terminal. You cannot walk to the international terminal. I did and it took an hour and had to walk on a small highway for about 3 miles. Do not try it. Hotel is great, and would definitely recommend it for a peaceful night's sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LP Business Best Hotel in the vicinity of Sydney Airport
I have stayed in multiple hotels in and around Sydney Airport. This is easily the best value hotel - and is relatively comfortable and quiet. When staying near Sydney Airport, this is my hotel of choice.
Note: Late night room service menu is not fantastic, so be sure to eat before 11pm.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey50 Fly and shuttle
This is the second time we have used this hotel. The first time we were delayed on our return home due to lack of information given to us re the airport shuttle pick up point being moved. Therefore this time around I made extensive enquiries re the timing of the airport shuttle. Beware it is a half hour turn around, even though the hotel is ten minutes from the airport. If you miss the shuttle you are at the airport waiting for over half an hour. Unfortunately on the Saturday afternoon we arrived at 2.30 for the 2.40pm shuttle and it simply did not come, even though every other company's shuttle seemed to arrive some twice. We phoned the Sydney shuttle service and they assured us it was coming. We waited until 3.15 pm till the next one arrived. Tired and weary, I arrived at the hotel, the staff simply said you must have missed it!
The hotel advertises this as one of their packages, but the staff have a lack of knowledge about the shuttle service and take no responsibility for and delays etc. I asked the staff on my second return what other option there was. A taxi which could cost fifteen to twenty dollars depending on traffic. At no time did staff offer this information. The cost for the shuttle for two is 12 dollars. For the extra Money I would have preferred to catch a taxi. After two bad experiences I am very reluctant to use the park and shuttle option again.
