Good hotel/rooms. Very convenient for airport

Hotel is right opposite International Airport and also metro trains to city. Hotel is modern, rooms have all the expected amenities, desk, Free WiFi, tea/coffee making facilities, well-stocked mini-bar. Bathroom area has walk-in shower. Toilet has door but there is no door to bathroom. Bed very comfortable. The only small negatives are small basin which doesn't drain well and absence of washing line which most 4/5 star hotels have. Hotel grill restaurant was good although service was disappointing slow. Staff friendly and helpful. Luggage can be stored for up to 9 hours for those with late departure times. Very good hotel for overnight stopovers or short stays.

Necessary overnight near Sydney airport

This Rydges hotel was fresh and convenient, perfect for the brief overnight we needed to collect our family in Sydney (including an ideal location easy access from our international arrival and our son's train ride into the city). Cozy but very comfortable room, truly immediate and perfectly professional service, and the best included breakfast we have experienced at a hotel! I was planning to give them a perfect rating until we departed, when we found that they had discontinued their advertised (at least at the time I booked our stay) courtesy shuttle bus service to the domestic terminal, and gave us a voucher for the public bus. Although this would have typically been a relatively minor nuisance, it definitely didn't provide the full value I had shopped for in choosing our hotel. And since it happened to be raining, grabbing a taxi was the only real option not expensive, but an unexpected expense, nonetheless. To close on a positive note, which this hotel deserves, the staff member who had been given the unhappy job of informing guests that shuttle service was no longer provided and compensating them with a voucher for the public bus enthusiastically hailed the needed cab for us when we turned down the rainy walk to the bus stop. Great team single dissatisfaction would stay here again prepared with this knowledge!

Grat location, ordinary hotel

I needed to stay close to the Airport for an early morning flight, so it ticked that box. However, I had booked a superior queen room, only to find that it contained a double bed not a queen! As it was only me, it didn't matter so much, but I wonder what you would have got if you only booked a double. It was unfortunately neither superior, nor queen. The food at the pub downstairs was above average quality for pub food. So overall pretty good, but the room description and no doubt the higher price I paid for it let it down

Stop before early morning flight

Excellent hotel, wonderfully placed near to the airport, making it even easy for a 70+ couple to walk between hotel and airport with ease. Very helpful and patient reception desk staff. Free WiFi and use of computer with printer. Room and facilities splendid. No problem in recomending this hotel.

Great location and that's the only value for money

We checked into this airport hotel on the last night of our 6D vacation in Sydney so that we didn't have to rush to the airport in the morning to settle car rental and lug our luggage around. The location of this hotel is perfect for this purpose as it is right next to the car rental car park and also right next to the airport. However, there is no other plus point for this hotel as it is truly a basic hotel and the service is only so-so...

Great Location

This is a great location if you are flying out from the international airport in Sydney on a morning flight. It is a 5 minute walk from the hotel to airport departures with luggage. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very quiet and the noise from the airport is not an issue.

Excellent airport hotel they should all be so good

We enjoyed our stay at the Sydney airport Rydges hotel very much. The location was brilliant, the amenities of the hotel very good, and the room did all we could have hoped for from it. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower fantastic! We also joined the loyalty program before we arrived, and enjoyed a very good and extremely filling meal in the restaurant with 10 percent off the total bill thanks to our Rydges membership. It was a great way to start an international flight and we will do it again. If you eat in the restaurant, try to have to the slow cooked lamb shoulder with masses of veggies -- it was delicious!

good comfortable hotel

This hotel is ideal if you arrive in Sydney Airport late at night or if you have to stay overnight between flights. It's modern and comfortable and quiet. Because of its location it appeals to aircrew and people in transit as well as those having business meetings. The restaurant is adequate, bar food is good- but the menu is short. The so-called sports bar has 5 screens showing sports, but otherwise feels like an airport bar. On our stay the beer taps were not working and there was only a limited range of bottled beer - very poor for a hotel of this quality. The free shuttle to the Domestic Terminal is an excellent facility.
