Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The decor and design is great. Coffee pot in room. Free luggage storage using self serve lockers was great. Decent breakfast close to everything but food. They do have a small grab and go self serve area if you get hungry in the evening, spent 2 nights here.

Great clean and comfortable room, with a fun airport design. Booked a day use room at the last minute due to a long layover. It was worth every penny. Kerri on reception was a real pleasure to deal with. Snacks available from the lobby and if your lucky you may get the pie shop across the road open.

I stay at these all the time and this one was great. The room was well designed and comfortable. Bed was good and the bathroom was compact but had everything. The reception staff were friendly and although you could only order a couple of dishes for dinner, I found that it was enough. Loved that people could buy a selection of foods from a cooler and microware them. I will stay here again.

The hotel itself was ok. However - the hotel took a $50 hold on my credit card at check in which would be refunded on checking out. Four weeks later and quite by accident I noticed it had not been refunded!! Trying to get through and get my money back was a nightmare and the cynic in me thinks they were trying this on deliberately. No apology - no explanation just a refund when I got very stroppy and angry! If you don’t trust people and have to take a deposit, have the courtesy to refund it!! Really disappointed with IHG here!!!

A modern looking hotel right by Sydney Domestic Airport - 15 minutes by walk (yes you can do it) or less than 10 minute shuttle ride to airport terminal. Nothing fancy about this hotel but guest rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated, provides all the basic needs for a short or overnight stay nearby Sydney airport - really good for travelers who arrives late or need to catch an early morning flight. Just be aware that there are not too many restaurants or markets in the immediate area around this hotel. Only one real dining option in the hotel right across the street. Receiption is on the first floor (you enter the premise at G floor so one level up) where you would do check-in/check-out, mini-mart and dining altogether. Staff was a bit stiff when I arrived but remained professional otherwise. They first told me no room was available until 2pm and I arrived a bit after 12 noon time but did assign me a room in less than 30 minutes. Breakfast is included but I did not have the chance to enjoy it as the weekend hours start from 7am and I needed to leave early to catch my flight. Breakfast during the week does start at 6:30am though. One more thing to keep in mind - hotels in Australia does not offer free shuttle service even they are right by the airport. Most major hotels in this area use Sydney SuperShuttle and there is a set schedule which you can ask the reception. You will have to notify the reception of such needs and purchase a ticket. However, I was told the price of booking Uber would be roughly the same price as SuperShuttle so I ended up just calling Uber. To sum it up, this hotel is a good choice for traveler who need a quick stay near the airport. The price is not the cheapest but it is not too expensive either. Will consider using it again if I ever have the need again.

Great airport hotel. All you need. Very comfortable. Friendly staff & great breakfast thrown in. 100% recommend. Room very clean. Didn’t use shuttle bus after reading reviews. Just took a cab to get here & an Uber to return to airport. $20 each way

Up to the usual Holiday Inn standard. Welcoming staff and easy check in. The hotel is fairly new being constructed in 2019. Breakfast is included in the tariff which makes the stay very economical. There is the usual buffet spread of cereal, juices, breads, pastries, and hot hot food. And it is ample to start any day. Ignore the feeling peckish menu. We had 2 pizzas which were supposed end crispy base but were glug. The toppings were commercial at best and not tasty. Wine is over the top expensive but of reasonable quality but not value. Our pick is the Greek Street Food bar opposite. Open 6 - 11 pm. Happy to say stay here again. The hotel is close to the Sydney airport and there is transport at a cost.

It's a clean, modern airport hotel similar to those found worldwide. We stayed one night before our flight home in the morning. Nice plane spotting from the upper floors where you can see some airport activities. Internet was good, the room clean and they even allowed early check-in. The bathroom was very modern with all glass walls. I'm sure this makes the room size more efficient but does leave a little to be desired for privacy. One of the pillows had a mildew smell. The gym has a few dumbells and a couple treadmills, it could be improved. The walk to Mascot station is probably 10 minutes and goes by the Qantas headquarters. We took one of the ever-present Lime bikes to ride over to an italian restaurant on Botany road. The included breakfast was good although pretty crowded. We did the shuttle bus to the international terminal but it was a very old bus that stopped at several other hotels on the way. It sounds like taxis don't like picking up rides in the area but I could see an Uber being better and quicker than the paid shuttle bus.

This hotel is located within an easy walking distance of the Domestic Terminal (we only had carry-on). Our room was clean, well organized (the usual Holiday Inn Express layout) and the price-point was pretty much 'spot-on'. Check-in was quick and easy. Breakfast was nothing special, but having said that not many Australian hotels include a breakfast in the price. In other words for a one night stay, the place did the job. Would most certainly stay there again.
