We book Ibis Budget family room if we have an early flight. It is a great place to stay overnight. It offers Wifi in the lobby at a cost. It does offer meals but McDonalds, KFC and Krispy Kreme are all within walking distance. The shuttle bus is $7/person to the airport. Rooms are clean and air-conditioned. Car parking is...

Since it has been extended it is not quite as friendly as before. We had to wait to get a beer because of issues with others checkins. The new rooms are not so insulated from aircraft noise but still acceptable.

Aircon didn't work. No hairdryer. TV remote batteries flat. No extra pillows. No advice re shuttle service and when our taxi came and asked for us at the front desk they didn't even ask it to wait (we were in the lift). You get what you pay for...

Booked onlne. Advertising photos looked great. Room clean. But here I am writing this review at 2am not being able to sleep due to the loud guests arriving/leaving. The noise factor is horrendous. It is a noisy building, every sound echos, even taps in the next room being turned on can be heard. Have never, ever experienced such bad accommodation....

A quick one night stay with and early breakfast (not Mcdonalds) was required. The bed was very comfortable and staff extremely pleasant. Breakfast was good value (I took the deal). Would stay again. Would be great if the Airport bus would pick up, but there are other options. Easy walk to the train station.

Nightshift reception had no clue where Bay 11 for shuttle hotel pickup and did not know that it had changed to Bay 12 Info in the internet is wrong also. Shuttle service poor. The bus arrived and stopped 40 meters away the other side of the avenue and we had to walk across the road to get into it. Hotel...

Located close to Sydney Airport the hotel is in a great location, although it will take your taxi over half an hour to make the drive ($50+) given the traffic conditions. The rooms are very small for the rate paid, and are full of cockroaches. Waking up after staying there and making my way to the shower I had a...

First of all they gave me a room key when I checked in for a room that was already occupied. Then when I got to the room, it was stinking hot, the air conditioner sounded like a train going through the room and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The bathroom was tiny, when I was in the shower I literally...

At least the name of it is a disclaimer of it being a shocking hotel. If I wanted to sleep on a rock hard bed, I would've slept in the bus stop across the road. Air con not working + very small bathroom.

We understand that our hotel may not have the standard offerings of a full serviced hotel, although we do offer a clean room, with new sleep maker sweet beds, TV shower and ensure the service is there also. Sorry to hear it didn't meet your expectations. Anthony...
