Nice hotel, excellent location, great staff, but very uncomfortable bed

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Feb 2024
PROS: Rydges Sydney Airport overall is very convenient, located across the street from the terminal. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to departures (across the street into the terminal and up an elevator), and less than 5 minutes to and from arrivals. The rooms are clean and nice. There’s a food court in departures (before security) with excellent options and the food is quite good. Hotel has a restaurant (with a set course dinner option), ground floor bar, and another small bar a few floors up where you can watch airplanes take off and land. Rydges staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient, providing information on everything you need to know about amenities within the hotel, and suggesting that we keep our luggage on trollies in our room for an easy departure the next morning.
CONS: The reason for my 3 star rating is that the bed was very uncomfortable - it was overly soft so we could feel each other’s every movement. It also had a major dip in the middle which my husband and I were rolling into towards each other, unless we slept close to the edges. Not ideal given that sleep was the main purpose of being there. Rydges staff are very nice, however they don’t provide information about anything outside the hotel itself unless asked - ie information on how to get the terminal, where departures is located, or about food options outside the hotel. Tired travelers may forget to ask proactively. This is out of Rydges control, but we weren't able to order Uber Eats as there were no drivers in the area.

Clean and functional, quiet although our room faced the runway. Excellent breakfast. Rather confused method of billing: I was told the bill for the minibar would be sent separately and that has not happened two days hence. A hassle for just a Mars bar. All in all I would recommend.

The hotel was very convenient and much appreciated . The only glitch was finding our way from the domestic to the international terminal at 11:00 pm at night after the transit bus stopped running. Ultimately some very helpful passengers showed us the way.

I found this hotel on my first trip to Sydney in 2010. This is my sixth trip, and I have stayed there each time the night before my departure to the U.S. It is most convenient, as you just walk a short distance to the international terminal after checking out - no taxi or shuttle needed! Comfortable, quiet rooms that are well equipped. Being a travel enthusiast, I enjoyed the plane spotter package. You get a pair of binoculars to keep, and $50. credit for meal purchases at the hotel. I look forward to staying again on my next trip.

Room tip: If you are a flying enthusiast, consider the plane spotter package. You get binoculars to keep, plus a $50. credit towards meals.

The rooms are not decorated nicely. It is a mishmash of colours. For example there was a feature wall (orange in colour - very dated in look). under it there was a bed head mustard in colour. The furniture once again did not match. It looked like an assortment of furniture in different colours bought from Fantastic Furniture. On my floor in the sitting area, once again there was a mishmash of furniture of different colours which did not match. There were brackets on the wall with books in them, which once again looked strange. with a metal rod underneath which looked weird and served no purpose. My theory is that the hotel was either decorated by someone of Indian origin, or someone on drugs or perhaps the owner's daughter. The food in the café (pasta) was very greasy. The staff were friendly and helpful. My name is Mani Venugopal and I stayed in room 112.

Great staff at reception. Room service food was really good. It made our airport check-in experience super easy.

This airport hotel makes perfect sense for an early flight. Every request that we made was met with a smile and desire to please.
