Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Mascot
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I normally stay at the Holiday Inn near the airport but rates were very high, so I booked a room at Rydges. I had to prepay to get a good rate but not a big deal. It is a great location as it is a easy 2 minute walk to the terminal, and you can get a train down to the Opera House, very easy. Nice rooms, new and modern. They have a nice coffee shop and bar with bar food.

Room Tip: I had a view of the terminal, you can hear the planes, but you are right there.

If this Hotel is within your budget then stay here, and you will not be disappointed!
The Hotel is just 1 minute walk to the international terminal and the hotel was first class and indeed excelled our expectations.

The staff were great and there was a good choice of food in the 2 restaurants.
Despite being on the terminal the room was quiet and well furnished with free Wi-Fi

It was so much more relaxing getting to the international airport the afternoon before an early morning flight the next day. You can sleep in comfort with no worries about traffic delays as you are just a few steps from the checkin desk.

It was a fast checkin process at the hotel with a prebooking on the hotel website. The hotel obviously overlooks the airport but they must have good soundproofing as we didn’t hear a thing – the room was lovely and quiet. The bed was comfortable and had a good range of pillows. Free wifi in the room was great and the extra large TV screen is good for movies. However, I was not similarly impressed by the bathroom which is all open plan with the bedroom – it is not a separate room with door. The shower area had a fabric shower screen; the toilet was behind an opaque glass door with big gaps at top and bottom. There was no real privacy and if a roommate uses the facilities during the night, noise and lights are an issue which certainly disturbed my sleep. I was advised by staff that all the hotel rooms have the same setup.

The breakfast buffet was satisfactory although I wouldn’t rave about it. I thought it was an excellent service to offer breakfast from 4am for early flights. The cafe with the all important range of coffees is also open extra early from 4:30am. We had dinner in the hotel’s Blackwattle Grill which was very nice – fresh food and well cooked.

So all good apart from the bathroom issues!

Stayed before an early morning flight. Had originally booked a queen standard room. Was offered an upgrade on check in for an extra $25 but declined. Upon entering room we changed our mind and went back to take up the offer. We thought since staying at the airport we should at least try to take advantage of the location. We ended up paying an additional $75 to upgrade to the king suite (you only live once!) which was an awesome corner room with floor to ceiling windows that looked right onto the runway. Sat for a few hours watching the planes take off and land over a reasonably priced bottle of wine from the mini bar. Enjoyed dinner in the sports bar before returning to the super comfortable bed that awaited us. Prepaid buffet breakfast was a real treat. Loved being able to walk to international check in in only a few minutes. Will be back.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the runway.

Great to see that you took the opportunity to upgrade to one of our King Suites – they really do offer amazing views with the floor to ceiling windows!

Very much looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.

This is the second time we have stayed here due to Early morning flights.
The rooms are excellent,This time we were upgraded to a suite with a separate bedroom.We had the most amazing King size Bed which was certainly a dream to sleep on!
Staff are always professional and courteous..
It certainly is all about The Location.
Unfortunately our room this time looked over a car park but this was a small sacfrice in return for the extra room.
We previously stayed at another Airport Hotel but wouldn't stay anywhere else now.
We will back in 13 weeks time and look forward to our stay once again.

We stayed here overnight from Honolulu awaiting connection next day to Adelaide.
It was great to clear customs, walk through the airport and across the road to a comfortable bed. Reception was efficient and friendly. The room was very modern with flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities and a vast mini bar.
The best thing was the bed which was SO comfortable. We had room service breakfast which was nice, though pricey. A complimentary shuttle across to the domestic airport was most appreciated. We paid $210.00 for our room, but when you are tired and ready to put your feet up, it was money well spent! PS. Didn't hear a thing, so don't worry about airplane noise.

We have stayed at this hotel quite a few times when departing and return to Australia.
You get what you pay for, there are no trimmings or layers, just a good bed, good pillows, clean and comfortable room.
Only comment would be to please include some mugs in the rooms for a decent cup of tea or coffee, the black ones there now are to small. We did ring room service to request mugs and they said there were none in the hotel.
We also thought $14.50 for a bowl of chunky fruit salad was a bit rich!!!!
We will continue to stay here when we travel as its easy access to the airport, and as long as the prices don't sky rocket.
