    Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 454 reviewers.
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistently great I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 10 years for business. Each time the service, staff and quality has delivered the same experience - a comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable stay. Standards have never dropped over the years with spotlessly clean well appointed rooms, well thought out food and beverage options and confident, friendly staff focussed on their guests. May 31, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Value for Money Comfortable hotel in a good location - only two train stops to the CBD and a 10 minute walk to the airport. Staff are generally friendly, warm and professional and the food and bar are good quality. May 26, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great overnight stopover I was in Sydney overnight, with an airport meeting early the next morning. Convenient venire. May 26, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value For Money I always stay at the Holiday Inn Sydney Airport when im travelling abroad. The clean facilities and friendly staff always make my stay comfortable. The holiday inn is a convenient location with parking and shuttle service to the airport. I always like to wind down in the biggles bar area of an evening for a drink and a meal (*** try the antipasto plate***) and the morning breakfast is a must. I will stay again at the holiday inn for great value and comfort. May 26, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value for money with wonderful package We enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn each time we travel especially with early flight departures, but this time we used the package deal of accommodation, breakfast, parking May 26, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Want to stay longer Unfortunately we were only here one night. We were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and overall with the place itself. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely visit again. May 25, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shuttle The shuttle to the airport was good and timely but I do not understand why the hotel does not provide a "free shuttle" as most other hotels that are so close to an airport. I had to go to the hotel 4 times which ended up costing 24 dollars May 24, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice airport hotel We had an early morning flight so we moved from the Old Town Sydney Holiday Inn for our last night. As a Platinum IHG member, we were checked in very effeciently. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Even though we were close to the airport, the airplane noise was minimal. The bar downstairs offered a nice variety of choices for a informal dinner. They also have a nicer resturant that we did not use. Would recommend if you need a hotel close to the airport, but even though they are close to a subway station to go downtown, would recommend staying downtown for a visit to Sydney. May 23, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel to kick off your holiday for O.S Greeted by the Receptionist with a wonderful smile and positive attitude. My Room booking requests were all correct and meet. Great Bar area downstairs with interesting light meals to choose from that were different to the normal fair. Plenty of beers to choose from and some boutique blends I had never had the pleasure of sipping on before. Plenty of T.V monitors around in different areas of the bar so sport and news were freely available to see This place is a great spot to start to unwind before heading off O.S, will be going back again.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excelente servicio Muy buena ubicación para una noche cerca del aeropuerto. Excelente servicio. El bar, como está abierto al público, resulta excesivamente concurrido en el after office y muy ruidoso. Creo que en este sentido tienen alguna oportunidad de mejora. May 22, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by miss Stayed here for more 5 times .Good Hotel. Near to my work and Train station. May 21, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by riox11 Good hotel, comfortable and situated close to the airport and public transport May 20, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel - Elegant hotel - Well presented - Would recomend to others May 20, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always look forward in our over night stay. After a hetic pace to get to Sydney from Newcastle for a early flight the next day, walking into the foyer of the Hotel is a great pleasure. The Reception staff and especially the staff in Biggles are exceptional. I always have a hamburger and the staff in Biggles go to the effort of finding me some beetroot for the hamburger. No doubt all the staff are exceptional but I didn't meet them. May 19, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ROOM AND CHECK IN The check in was easy and fast a efficient staff member was help full The room was comfortable and quite which allowed me to sleep following my flight May 19, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Return Visit Review My wife and I continue to stay here on our occasional transient visits to Sydney due to the convenience to Sydney Airport T1/T3. Since our last visit 12 months ago the quality of the great service has not diminished. The room was bright and airy, no noise due to double glazed windows, the appointments and fittings were excellent and the bathroom facility left nothing to be desired in the way of cleanliness and condition. Front desk staff provided a warm welcome, and the dining room food and service could not be faulted. May 19, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent as Sydney Transit Hotel Good shittle from airport and very effecieint staff. Nice room and good value. Too easy! May 18, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very accessible and comfortable beds A complimentary breakfast should be considered and included at this hotel. This is an excellent location for travellers by air and it is both clean and comfortable. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful when we arrived and attempted to meet our needs.( our luggage had not arrived!) May 17, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience overall Particularly impressed with the front desk staff, and on our departure, my wife and I both expressed to each other after leaving, how genuine they appeared to be, and in particular, one staff may a very genuine comment with his expression, "Thank you for staying with us" That comment really topped of our stay. Thankyou. We will be back. May 17, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome hotel Recently I needed an overnight stay in Sydney and chose the Holiday Inn due to its proximity to the airport. The visit was fantastic from the moment you walk into the spacious luxurious lobby. The reception staff were friendly and even though i could not remember my IHG number they went out of their way to find me and make sure I got my points for the stay along with free WiFi. The room (9th floor) was so comfortable and clean with a great view. After a nice night sleep I had the complete yummy breakfast buffet and hopped on the shuttle bus the staff had reserved for me for a quick trip back to the airport. Would definitely stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend it. May 15, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable hotel I must say the food are superb at both restaurant and bar at Holiday Inn Sydney Airport. I actually went back to the hotel for lunch/dinner during my stay - the food energetised me quite a lot during my stay for conference. May 14, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent facility close to Sydney Airport The park and fly option was particularly convenient for us as we live two hours drive from Sydney. Comfort and service left nothing to be desired and we will certainly be returning in the future. May 14, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great spot for the morning flight This hotel is wonderful choice when you need to be near SYD with either a late arrival or early departure. A short 300 meter walk from the Mascot Suburban rail station means you can take the train from either the International or Domestic Terminal without the hassle of the public bus or unhappy taxi drivers that were hoping for the center city fare. Breakfast buffet was excellent with separate prep station for cooking eggs to order. May 13, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meets our needs The airport Holiday Inn is a good hotel for our needs. We only use it as a night stop over on our way to international flights. It has everything we want. A bar to fill in some time and chat and food service. The rooms are celan and comfortable. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. May 12, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic stay Had a great stay, thank you! Friendly, welcoming staff:-) May 12, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie Good stay. Met my needs. Would stay again and would recommend to others. May 12, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff Staff are friendly and helpful. They assisted with several special needs with smiles and good wishes. May 11, 2014
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast ? Good, although an airport hotel offering breakfast need to offer this before 6;00am for those on early flights May 10, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall Experience Staff understands and practices customer service. They are very proficient and proactive in resolving a guest's concerns. Nice to have someone take an extra step where other hotels want to either charge you or blow you off. Rooms are fairly large, quiet and comfortable. May 9, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable stay We overnighted before our overseas trip and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Took the rush out of our departure and have recommended Holiday Inn Sydney Airport to all our friends. May 8, 2014
