“Convenient to airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Great value and close to airport for those early morning flights but beds were not very comfortable and bathroom is so small you can't shower without wetting the toilet seat! Very nice people running it and parking is very cheap.

Formule 1 Sydney Airport is within walking distance of the Sydney Domestic Terminal. The rooms are clean and adequate and the staff courteous and helpful. Whilst the room did have a double power outlet it would have been much more convenient had it been near the bed (or an additional double outle) near the bed) to avoid the necessity of having to carry an extension cord to be able to use electronic devices on 240v power from the bed especially in winter.
Fast food outlets are within walking distance of the hotel.

I always stay here when I have an early flight out or late flight in. Walking distance from domestic terminals but there is a shuttle bus available also. Rooms are basic, no tea or coffee making facilities but there are vending machines on the property and food outlets right next door. Cheap car parking and a well priced continental breakfast available. New initiative to be able to purchase an alcoholic drink is most welcomed.

I stay at Formule 1 at Mascot regularly travelling between Ballina and Wagga Wagga. The location is great as I can walk from and to the domestic terminal in less than 10 minutes. Service is always very good with my admission card ready at reception when I arrive. Unfortunately I often experience very bad (unwatchable) tv reception for ABC1, my preferred tv channel. I would appreciate this being addressed. Otherwise no other problems and I will continue to stay in this hotel.

For the budget conscious traveller, or simply an overnight transfer accomodation - you probably cant beat this place.
Only a 5 minute WALK from the domestic terminal (catch a train to domestic if you are coming internationally!!) and with comfortable rooms, this is certainly one of the best ways to save money if you are only here for a overnight stay.
Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, but the hallways can be confusing if you take a wrong turn - which might frustrate people - but if thats the only problem, then its an easy stay.
One downside is that it is located very close to MCDonalds, KFC and Krispy Kreme....so expect to put on a couple kilos while staying here unless you want vending machine food...which is probably just as bad.
Other than that, if you are on a budget - and you dont mind a 25 minute drive to the city (50 bucks by taxi) then stay here - you will be pleasantly surprised

Travelled to go to the Footy - Early morning flight out. Very quick walk to and from Airport. Rooms basic but very suitable for purpose - no noise to worry about. Very close to take away outlets for quick meals.

Our stay was a pleasant one as usual as I stay at formula quite often when I travel. But on arrival to the room we noticed the windows and the mirror had dirty hand prints all over them ,The carpet was stained , dirty and worn thru, dangerous for disabled appliances
We did not use the clothes rack as it nwas in pieces and broken. The toilet seat was quite loose and I had to tighten it in case of an accident.. Luckily the staff were very courtious and friendly
