“Right next to the airport and a good quality hotel - not the cheapest for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I stop in at the Holiday Inn Melbourne airport a couple of times per year for business. The hotel has everything you need and is overall pretty good. The service is always excellent here and the rooms are always spotless! The hotel restaurant is also fantastic and opt for the gnocchi - delicious.

For the price of the hotel however, you could stay in a nice inner city hotel and simply catch an early cab to the airport. I will likely take this approach in future - even though the hotel itself is good, it doesn't quite match it's nightly rate.

If you want a place to stay that is calm, relaxing has good food and friendly helpful staff that is close to the airport then look no further. The rooms are comfortable and a haven of tranquility. The only negative comment I would make is that although the choice and quality of the breakfast is excellent it is a little expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors facing the city give you a fantastic view.

Stayed here after a long flight from UK. We were picked up by the hotel bus although it is a short walk from terminal. The bed was comfortable and room quiet, had really good night sleep. We enjoyed great breakfast which offered good and tasty choice. The hotel team was helpful and friendly. Would stay again.

I stayed here to redeem some IHG reward points over a weekend night recently. I was given a good upgraded superior room on one of the top floors and I found the sound-proofing to be one of the best for an airport hotel. The only criticism I had was that the charge for breakfast was a tad steep at AU$25 (I only wanted a light breakfast) and normally in other IHG properties this is waived for Platinum Elite members. The staff were great and I could not have faulted the stay with the exception of the breakfast cost, although the quality was high!

Stayed for one night whilst transiting, late night arrival but we were collected from the airport in the shuttle bus very quickly. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, the baby cot was already in our room as requested (it's amazing how many hotels miss this and I end up having to chase it up). Ordered room service breakfast for the morning and it was plentiful, fresh and tasty. Really can't fault this hotel, it is ideal for an airport stop-over.

Very handy to airport with good shuttle bus to airport in about 5 min or one can walk through the parking garage in front of the airport in about 10 min from the hotel. Rooms are good size with 2 comfortable beds and bath - and large area for suitcases and closet to hang clothes. The elevators are in the center of the building and are fast and convenient. There is a guest laundry that is on the first floor and handy to use. The restaurant has a good menu and the breakfast has a self service area which is fast and convenient to the lobby. Staff are pleasant and accommodating in checking in and out and having one scheduled for transfer to the airport.

Room Tip: all rooms have a good view and the higher ones a better view

This is a great location - SO close to the airport and rental car facility. The bar and hallways are really dated - and I expected the worst - but the rooms were clean and relatively updated. The staff was very friendly (bar and front desk). It is across the street from a McDonalds - so if you do not want to pay hotel prices for food you can eat there or get take away. The shuttle is fast and service is very frequent. I used the gym - it is basic but had what a needed (treadmill and free weights). I would recommend this hotel if you need to stay near the airport (we did because we arrived late at night and were flying out the following morning). Caution: allow A LOT of time if you are travelling internationally. When they suggest 3 hours, they mean it!
