I've stayed here a few times now and it was the first hotel I stayed in when I first got to Australia. I primarily booked it because it has a free airport shuttle (which you catch near McDonald's) and because it offeres high-speed internet in-room (for a fee). The first time was a nice stay with rooms clean and spacious. The second time (when I desperately needed the internet) they informed me that it is down and not working and that they were sorry and didn't offer me any more advice. The restaurants are uninspiring - I ended up eating in-room and for the price, it's just a clean hotel with comfortable beds. Service is a bit amature for an airport hotel that deals with so many international customers.

I fully agree with the review stating that this is the best choice if you want to be close to the airport and you do not have much time.

The nearby rail station of Mascot enables you to get to just about any Sydney location within half an hour.

Great rooms, professional staff who are very friendly and helpful!

Not wanting to endure a long rail trip to the airport for a morning flight I opted to stay at the Holiday Inn, Sydney Airport. The location is convienient and an easy walk from the "Mascot" City Rail station. The hotel shuttle is a nominal AU $4.00. An easy, safe, walk to Mascot station & all of Sydney area is within easy reach. Usual "airport pricing" for food, however the drink prices were reasonable for the area. Don't plan on walking to any resturants as the area is mostly large commercial complexes. Take the rail as mentioned above. You can negotiate a rate on the weekends. Check your bill upon checkout as I found my billing was $10.00 above the rate quoted upon checkin. Probably an oversight as there was no problem in obtaining adjustment.

We have also stayed at the Holiday Inn on several occasions and each time have had problems with the hotel's restaurant. Bad service mostly, and on one occasion it was an hour before the meal was served! Not what you need when either coming off a long flight or preparing for one.

My daughter and I arrived at the Holiday Inn Syd Airport at 6pm, we had just got off an international flight (as a lot of guests do). We went to have a meal in the restaurant, but sadly we were informed we should have booked ahead as there wasn't a table for two available until 8pm.(It was Wed night) Being an 'airport hotel' how do you book ahead for the restaurant?? We didn't want to sit around for 2 hrs and wait for a table to become available, we wanted to eat, have a shower and get some sleep. Isn't this what most travellers want? We went to our room where we tried to book a wakeup call and an airport bus for the following morning, an answering machine said to leave all the details and the hotel staff would listen to the message later and book call and bus. I just didn't feel comfortable talking to a machine about my wakeup time and my 5am airport bus. Maybe it was the overwhelming sense of efficiency I didn't get when I checked in that worried me. I phoned the reception to ask if I could verify the message left on the machine. They assured me it was ok. It was. We were awoken the next morning on time and took the bus on time. The rooms were extremely spacious and acturally quite luxurious. The bed was a king single even though we were assured it was a double by reservation staff. We made do. Basically the extra frequent flyer points I earned for staying at Hol. Inn were almost worth it.
