“Location and Convenient!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We booked this hotel as we had an overnight stop (arrived 10pm Friday night) and flew out at 9am the next day.....You can walk from the domesic airport (10min easy), and they have a $6pp suttle bus to international airport. We had a quad room (queen bed and bunk) between 4 adults, and it was quite spacious (enough room to lay out suitcases). The bathroom is quite small and basic however, for a quick stop over, a highly recommended hotel! Krispy Kremes and McDonalds are just next door. So close to the airport, and we didnt have any aeroplane noise.

Room Tip: We were close to the elevator - it dinged everytime the door opened, so maybe best to ask to not be...

We booked two rooms to accommodate our party of 5, 2 adults and 3 children for an overnight stop over between our international and domestic flights. Check in was very promt which was great given it was just after 10pm. We were tired and hungry upon arrival and the friendly staff directed us the fast food outlets which were right next door.

The rooms were small but more than adequate for our very short stay. They were nice and clean and the staff provided us with extra towels and soaps without us even asking. The beds were comfortable and our rooms which were next door to each other were very quiet. The bathrooms were very small and the floor got very wet when showering, but the shower was good and the bathrooms clean.

Check out was fast and friendly and we were able to walk to the domestic terminal which was great. Breakfast can be obtained from the hotel or at the fast food outlets next door. This was a great cheap option for a quick overnight stop over. Would stay here again.

We travelled as a family of 4 with 2 aged 5 and 4. Arriving in Sydney domestically at 9:30pm, it was a short ten minute walk to the hotel. Check-in was super fast.

The rooms are VERY basic but that is what Formule 1 is. We had a comfortable double bed and the kids were fine with the bunk, although their beds needed to be made - linen folded on top. The bathroom was very basic but fulfilled needs.

There was a fair bit of noise into the evening until about midnight. Then the other early risers with flights woke us from 4am on, us rising about 5:15am to get to the international terminal for a 7:30am flight. A taxi phone at the desk allowed us to order our ride the night before and was faster and cheaper than the shuttle for four of us.

It is not somewhere I would choose if I was staying in Sydney but was fine for our transiting needs.The cost of the room was much less than the increased cost of our airfares to fly without an overnight transit.

we found the hotel to be very comfortable and clean and in a very handy location to the Sydney domestic airport. Lovely breakfast. Will use this hotel again.

This is the perfect place to stay if you're flying out early the next morning. You can leave your car here for a reasonable rate which compares well with the cost of long term parking at the airport. The distance from the domestic terminal is tiny so if you don't mind dragging your suitcase you can walk there! Why would you stay anywhere else? Highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel so that we could catch an early international flight the next morning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They organised extra blankets for us as well as bus transfers. We had a little trouble working out where the bus transfer would pick us up when we arrived in Sydney and what time. This is not on their website and there are no signs. We, plus other waiting guests, had to ring the hotel and ask. The room was appropriate for what we needed and at a great price.
