Stayed in the Holiday Inn Old Sydney with my wife for 4 nights in March 2014. The hotel is a converted warehouse so doesn't look luxurious from the outside. The room was very comfortable though. The best thing about the hotel is its location - Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Circular Quay ferry terminal all a short walk (less than... More

We booked the first 5 nights of our 3 1/2 week holiday in Oz in the Holiday Inn. The location was perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We needed a doctor on our first night and this was all arranged efficiently and the doctor arrived within an hour and the staff asked how our son was every... More

Spent 3 nights in this motel recently to attend a photography workshop. Dream location and the view from the roof top terrace is spectacular. The staff were great and extremely helpful as well. Would definitely return if the opportunity arises. Bathroom could do with an upgrade but overall the room was very clean and comfortable.

The room was nothing special, in fact far from it, and Sydney prices with the over valued dollar means everything is expensive and this hotel is no exception. Staff very friendly and welcoming, and the location is hard to beat. I'd go again, but would like to see the prices moderate

The Holiday Inn provides comfortable if fairly basic accommodation. The room was quiet, of a decent size and had everything we needed. The location is great, so close to the opera house and circular quay. Would definitely recommend a walk around the rocks, we left this to our last day, but were really pleased we saw all the old buildings... More
