“Great stop over before flight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We had the opportunity to stay here on 14/11/13. We had to fly to Sydney a day before our international flight. Booked the accommodation online and when we arrived we asked for a 5pm checkout. This cost an extra $75 but it is well worth it especially when our flight did not leave until 7pm that night. The rooms here are great and beds are comfortable. Very short walk to the terminal. Would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

We had an early morning international flight, so staying nearby the airport sounded like the smart thing to do. And it was.
Gone was the nail-biting stress from watching the taxi meter ticking over in a typical Sydney traffic jam. We arrived early evening and ordered a room service Japanese platter, which was excellent. We slept soundly and next morning walked to the International Terminal, where we had breakfast after checking in our luggage.
All the Rydges staff members we encountered couldn't have been more helpful.
Our only reservation is that a covered walkway from the hotel to the terminal is needed for when it's raining or to provide shade in the middle of a hot summer's day.

I have to agree, we are definitely in the perfect position to avoid the nail biting stress of getting to the airport in time for your flight!

If it’s raining next time just use our rear exit (located next to the concierge desk) it offers a sheltered walk way all the way to the terminal.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Cheers,

If you have an early international flight it is such a good hotel right at the terminal. Just 5 minutes across the way. It is new and modern and cannot fault anything. Rooms are also soundproof well, but Sydney has no flights after 10pm anywhere so no problems there.

Our overnight stay at Rydges was excellent. Just a few minutes walk from the international airport terminal. As we were on our way home to Queensland we had to get to the domestic airport the next morning. The hotel shuttle was on time, getting us the terminal in a few minutes.
One only complaint was the cost of drinks and snacks at the sports bar. They were very expensive and the food was very ordinary.

A big thanks to Oui our check in clerk. He meet all our needs and more! Thank you Oui your a diamond. Room outstanding, large, quiet and clean. Downstairs we can use free wifi also in their restaurants. Concierge kept our bags after we checked out so we can see the sydney sites. Our flight did not leave until late evening. I would recommend to stay here. Across the street is the international terminals. Also bus and trains services to the quay. We had great room service the breakfast was awesome. I like their coffee. All the staff are warm and welcoming. We arrived at the domestic area and there is a free direct shuttle to the airport. Only a 5 minute ride. No airplane noise!!!!

Booked the plane spotters package at Rydges Sydney Airport and loved every minute of our time at this hotel. The man on reception at 11 am Friday 15/11/13 would have been one of the most helpful and friendly check in staff members we have encountered at any hotel we have used, we did not get his name but he was brilliant to deal with.
OK now for the room, room number 824, like many guests had an issue with bathroom layout, would prefer a more private arrangement, except for this the room was wonderful, nice comfortable bed nicely furnished, good amenities and the best thing of all for someone who loves flying the most amazing view of Sydney Airport, having A 380 and 787 aircraft parked directly in front of our window was fantastic.
The food, We ate at the Touchdown bar for dinner and both of us enjoyed the meals we had, I also had lunch at the touchdown bar using the $10 lunch menu deal and enjoyed this meal as well. Service in this bar was very good and I could not fault it I was very impressed.
Some people seemingly do not like the lobby area as they say it is to industrial, we did not find that at all and found this area of the hotel pleasant.
Another thing was the fact of how clean the bar, lobby and hotel hallways are for a busy hotel of this type, very impressive.

So overall loved this hotel, would stay here again as it has become my first choice Sydney Airport Hotel, Rydges Sydney Airport has set the standards for other Airport hotels, just amazing.

Room Tip: High floor airport view rooms are the best

I stayed here for a recent business trip when I was working at the international terminal. The rooms were lovely and the food was great. The bed was super comfy and the mini bar had a range of unique products. the gum is well equipped with electronic, pin loafed and free weights. I have stayed at 2 other hotels near sydney airport and this is way ahead of the others.
