“Finally A Decent Hotel Right At Sydney Airport”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Finally the sub standard airport hotels that require a shuttle bus ride have some decent competition. Adjacent to the international terminal this is a new and efficient 4 star hotel with very comfy beds, good sized rooms and great shower - very large as no bath needed. Also very quiet with no noise from outside evident. Has an online check in function so that u can arrive and go straight to a fast queue to get your key and head upstairs. Enjoyed a complimentary beer in the bar which is sports bar style and friendly. Would stay again.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the airport which was interesting to watch things going on over there! I think i...

Our corporate travel service book a couple of our interstate surveying team into Rydges as an alternative to our routine accommodation and it was a great surprise. From the free bus shuttle to the express check-in it was professional and efficient- great change. We ate late at the mezzanine grill which again was a repetition of the high level of service. Was so easy to get from and back to domestic terminal. What a change!!!!!!!. Congratulation on getting it right for the traveling professional.

You don't find a better hotel. Spotlessly clean. Modern in all respects. Adjustable shower heads for shorter people. Excellent free wi-fi and a 110 volt outlet on the desk. Good restaurants. Outstanding location if you are travelling internationally - two minute walk from the International air terminal. Free hotel shuttle from domestic terminal every 30 minutes. Join their Priority Rewards Program and get discounted rates, 20% off meals and drinks (yes alcoholic ones too) and late checkout. Hardly any airport noise.

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.
