“Uncomplicated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Excellent accommodation easy to find. Shuttle bus service was a bonus as we were concerned about getting to the airport on time, we had an early departure but it was not a problem for the hotel to accommodate us. Rooms were clean, tidy an adequate for our requirements. It was the first time we had stayed at a Formule 1 Hotel. We would not hesitate to try the many others situated around the nation on our next adventure. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and answered any queries we had regarding our stay and our departure in the morning. Thank you again.

As a fly in, fly out hotel, it suited us perfectly. Great location (close to Airport), fast book-in, and pleasant staff at reception. Rooms are small but adequate for overnight stays. If you can handle it, the fast food places are very convenient (being next door). Plenty of easy parking.
If I had to suggest some possible improvements which may have assisted us (a couple of Seniors, who had driven 3 hours in the rain and heavy traffic, tired etc. etc.) - a reminder on how to use the card to open the room door, point out the parking facility and fees and also advertise the shuttle bus - sometimes we just need a reminder on whats available.
We will definitely be staying there again when the occassion arises.

I use this chain often when I travel alone. I know exactly what I'm gonna get and never get a surprise good or bad.

It's a cheap room, cheap service and a cheap sleep. If you go in with your eyes open, you will never be wowed, but never be disappointed

Close to airport - rooms are very small but clean - Not to noisy from the airport - Mc Donalds and KFC within walking distance. Booked the bus to the domestic terminal the next morning. OK value for money considering what you pay.

Just spent half an hour writing a great review that was lost.
1. No kettle
2. No reading lamps
3. No kettle
4. No bedside tables
5. No kettle
6. Noising airconditioner but blocked out virtually all noise
7. No kettle
8. Rather warm in room and airconditioner is a non-adjustable universal system
9. No kettle
I would recommend it but warn friends how very basic Formula 1 is for non-budgetry reasons. It has the same level of services/appointments as a Police Cell (I was the one looking in, not out)
10. Only motel in the world that I know of that charges $8 to park your car.
11. No kettle

Formula 1 Mascot Airport provided a simple and clean place for us to stay for 3 nights over Easter. The room provided the minimum of what was needed to rest in after very full days out. It is a good venue of you are happy to look after yourself. It was located close enough to the City to be convenient. We would return quite happily.

The hotel is quite nice, rooms in good conditions, very small bathroom. Altough close to the Airport, it's very far from CBD, so who ever wants to walk to all good places in Sydney I would definately not recommend.
