    Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 477 reviewers.
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Accomodated by Airline due to Cancellation Shuttled to Hotel as flights cancelled. made to 'wait' hours whilst exhausted no offer of token refreshment. Room was hot and aircon did not cool it down sufficiently. Room service pizza was stale, cold and tasted like cardboard. On check out was overcharged and when front desk challenged politely he pulled a surly face. he also was dressed in an un ironed shirt, very unprofessional. Breakfast choices good except lack of cutlery and table cleaning. Soft poached eggs were hard and cool. I was manager in a 4 star hotel Sydney and found levels of staff attentiveness and appearance below par apart from one gentleman. Carried own cases to and from 3rd floor as no porters. Room aircon did not work properly. However room service very good. Biggles barstaff excellent. July 2, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sydney Holiday Inn Enjoyed the stay this time as before. Sure could have used you when we reached Dallas after a long trip from Sydney, having to refuel in TX, and cancelled flights to our home destination for a day and a half....making it a 40 hour trip before getting home, with no Holiday Inn in sight. Bob and Marie Agrifoglio, Corpus Christi, TX June 30, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay if my travel have me back in Sydney I will stay here again: All in All had a very good Experience during my stay, the staff was very helpful with all my question. The food and service was very good, no problem with the room, just before i was schedule to leave they changed the TV service had a little trouble getting it to work, I found it not be as good as the old one.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good break Price and quality of room were excellent. Comfortable beds, pillows and good wifi access. Location is quiet and convenient. My one minor issue was waiting for 15 mins to check in and no apology was given for keeping me waiting - common courtesy I would think (I don't mind waiting if the service provider acknowledges I have patiently done this). Nonetheless, the staff were well trained and polite in my interactions with them, including the check in process. I made two phonecalls to the front desk and was served very efficiently during this stay. I am a regular at this hotel and look forward to many future stays. June 26, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommended We stayed here for one night on our way from Wellington NZ to Bali. The airport shuttle was included in our rate, and was a great service, prompt and efficient. Check in and out were quick, and the room was fantastic, with lots of little extras. The only small thing was when we asked when checking in how to get to the train station, we were told to turn left out of the hotel, when in fact we should have turned right. We walked a lot further around the block than we needed to, and had to ask a passerby for directions. It would be good if there was some information to give to guests on catching the train into the city, e.g. The station location, where to go in the city, etc. Other than that, we loved it and would definitely stay again.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by friendly staff One of my favourite hotels, have visited this hotel frequently for the past ten years, it is close to the airport and a few hundred metres to the train services into the CBD. Would recommend it highly to business travellers requiring to relax after a hard day in the Sydney traffic. June 24, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet Place easy to go any where Quiet Place easy to go any where Quiet Place easy to go any where June 20, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, neat, quiet, comfortable Thought this was an excellent place. It was closer to airport, which was what I wanted. In addition, it was cheaper than if I was to go to Downtown Sydney, which they all seemed much more pricey. June 19, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value for Money and Top Class Amenities As we live north of the city, it was an excellent way to spend the night, (especially with the car parking facility offered), when catching a morning flight. Saved all the hassle of trying to get to the airport through Sydney's peak hour traffic. And with the car parking deal plus free shuttle it was a good value for money June 19, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Value First rate experience. I had the option to stay wherever I liked including far more expensive hotels like the Intercontinental in the CBD. I was a little worried that I might be disappointed but I wasn't. My company has business interests nearby and the Holiday Inn is definitely going to be getting our business. June 18, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by all over a great experience.great value. we were so great full to receive a very high standard in service and room comfort. June 18, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Stayed 1 night before flying overseas, left our car there for 12 nights excellent value undercover parking. staff great clean rooms and good food. Would recommend June 18, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good comfortable hotel close to airport The Holiday Inn Sydney Airport is a good, value option for accommodation close to the airport. The restaurant is especially good and both the bar and full restaurant have great food options. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and we have found this hotel to be a better option that other more expensive and higher star rating options in the vicinity. June 15, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Sydney Clean and well looked after. Helpful desk staff. Comfortable room. June 14, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stay again if you can get a park fly stay package good value s nice hotel clean staff all really nice especially the girls in the bar free wifi June 13, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort and style Very comfortable pillows and attractive decoration. I liked the idea of identifying different types of pillows June 12, 2014
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good for quick stop over hotel has all basics you need if on quick stop over before going further overseas. the business center has 4 computers, but they may not always be working. the food in breakfast buffet is fine and for $20A per person is good value if breakfast is your best meal. no microwave in hotel room, so need to understand room has coffee /tea facilities only. June 11, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great staff as always The Staff as always pleasant and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable, although we were given an adjoining room after requesting not to be given a room with an adjoining door, although it caused no problems with noise. We had asked for a high room, not near a lift so it may have been unavoidable. The only thing that we had negative views on was the in room breakfast, the pancakes were terrible, inedible, what they were made of was beyond me, never eaten a pancake with that texture, gritty, but that was the only thing that I could complain about and to be fair, we should have rung room service about it, but we were in a rush to get to an appointment in the city. All in all we enjoyed our stay. June 6, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff made the stay exceptional. Staff made the experience terrific. Hotel and room were everything expected. Location was very convenient for rail into the CBD. June 4, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, large quiet room We arrived quite late in the evening, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a large corner room which was very quiet. We ordered room service and the meal was delivered in a timely manner and was delicious. We would highly recommend this hotel June 3, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice unexpected overnight stay I unexpectedly stayed overnight as one of my flights was cancelled. Enjoyed the stay with lovely staff, good food and nice surroundings. June 2, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay for business trip. Great stay for business trips. Very close to railway station as well as the airport. June 1, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and comfortable This hotel is convenient and comfortable, close to Mascot domestic underground station for access to the city and walking distance to domestic airport if so inclined. June 1, 2014
    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
