“Great Value”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

This hotel has great convenience right by the airport. Warning - no tea or coffee facilities in the rooms and they are basic, but very clean and very friendly and helpful staff. In fact I was really impressed by the level of service from staff given the cost of a room, service paralleled that in much higher star rating hotels. Ideal for an overnight when connecting to flights.

Staff were very helpful, room was as expected - budget but adequate. Extra towel was available to suit our numbers. Located close to airport but tricky to get to international terminal by car. Good breakfast in house, also close to Macca's and KFC.

The motel is a fantastic place to stay before going on a flight from Sydney. Only complaint is there are no face washers. The customer service representatives were very friendly and most helpful. The room was a good size for a short stay.

I have stayed at Hotel Formule 1 three times this year and each time the experience has been a good one. It is hard to find cheap accommodation near the airport and from my experience this is the cheapest I have been able to get.
Everything is clean and streamlined. Certainly no frills, but there is a dining section with microwaves and a fridge.
Being within walking distance from Sydney Domestic Airport means you can walk back to the Airport Food Court and buy some great meals there and reheat them back at the hotel if you wish. I always have an immersion heater and a mug with me so can make my own hot drinks.
For a large building the hotel is very quiet. Everything functions well - TV and plenty of hot water.
The staff are efficient and very helpful.
I will definitely be staying there again!

Room Tip: Choose one away from the main room although the sound insulation is very good.

We were only staying one night before our international flight. We walked to the Hotel from Sydney Airport to also save $ and it was only a short walk. For the price we stayed we expected the worst but we were very pleased with the hotel. It is very clean, secure and in a nice location. Next door to fast food and the hotel offered a continental breakfast. There was even a TV in the room. We would definitely use the Hotel again for a budget short stay. It was basic but the price reflects the cleanliness and security of the hotel.

I stayed at the Formule 1 while in transit. Upon arrival at the hotel at 11pm the front desk staff were very helpful with prompt service. Although the rooms are small, they are very clean, and contain everything you need to a comfortable nights sleep. THe proximity of the hotel to the airport means what during the day you could walk to/from the airport if you wanted, and having fast food right next door was a godsend!
I will definitely be staying at the Formule 1 next time I stop over in Sydney, and have already recommended it to friends

With the cost of 109 for three people it's hard to do worse. Right next to the airport, quick check in, clean room and friendly people on the desk.

Only drawbacks, The internet is REALLY slow (Don't bother) and the windows don't open. Also, the top bunk didn't have a full length matress, but we made do and it was fine for a one night stay,

Room Tip: Don't bother with the internet.
