Super-convenient Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport

July 20, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

If you want instant high occupancies, opening a hotel at Sydney Airport is a smart move. The new Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport, officially opened yesterday, is off to a strong start.

Opening the 136-room property, New South Wales Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, said it would help serve the 42 million passengers who travel through Sydney Airport each year, as well the thousands of visitors and staff who visit the airport precinct daily.

Sydney Airport managing director and chief executive, Kerrie Mather, said the opening of the new hotel so close to terminals would further improve customer experience for airport visitors. She mentioned the “magnificent views of the airport” the property gives – and it’s certainly a great location for plane spotters, as well as travellers between flights and those about to catch a flight. 24-hour reception helps in that regard.

Despite its proximity to planes, the Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is surprisingly quiet. Plane noise hardly penetrates the windows and you get a good night’s sleep, as I found at the property on Tuesday night.

Additionally, the new hotel offers one thing that travellers can’t get enough of – good, free, fast internet. Logging into the net is simplicity itself; not even a password is required. The shower is strong and powerful, another plus.

“We’re delighted to celebrate the opening of this fantastic hotel, providing even more value and choice for our customers – whether they want a convenient place to stay close to the airport or an easy commute to the CBD,” Mather said.

“Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport helps meet the need for additional hotel accommodation as we continue to experience strong passenger growth.”

Mantra Group chief executive Bob East said the new property provided much-needed hotel capacity to support the growth of aviation and tourism in the Sydney basin.

“Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport addresses the demand for contemporary airport accommodation with vibrant, dynamic facilities and a slick service culture,” he said.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Sydney Airport on this project, which is a win for the economic growth of Sydney.”

Congratulating Mantra Group on yesterday’s hotel opening and the group’s commitment and contribution to the State’s multi-billion dollar tourism economy, NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, said the eight-storey landmark building was the newest hotel at Sydney Airport and Sydney’s third on-airport hotel.


On-airport hotels are in big demand. There’s another one coming up shortly as well, with Travelodge Hotels set to open a new 209-room hotel at Sydney Airport (with all-day dining and a late night bar) on 1 September. Not that Marshall mentioned that yesterday.

“With record numbers flying into Sydney, new hotel openings such as the Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport provide visitors to NSW with greater choices in accommodation location, style and price point,” Marshall said.

“New hotels in key precincts play a critical role in promoting a vibrant visitor economy while meeting the needs of growing visitor numbers to Sydney, attracting first-time and returning domestic and international travellers.

“I also know that this hotel will be warmly welcomed by people living in rural and regional areas who are often after a nearby quality hotel to stopover for a night before having to fly out again the next day.”

Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is ideally suited for business and leisure travellers looking for conveniently-located accommodation close to the airport and terminals, while still only being 8km from the CBD.

Many of the new-build hotel’s 136 modern studio rooms overlook Sydney Airport’s runways. Rooms give enough space and save on unnecessary space-consuming items. There’s no wardrobe, for instance – instead you can hang shirts or a jacket on coathangers on wall hooks (see photo).

The property offers an integrated reception and lobby with a 24/7 atmosphere and service, express check-out, internet kiosk and relaxed dining with a bold provincial menu of the finest regional NSW beef and sustainably-sourced local seafood, served with local draught beer, wines and handcrafted cocktails.

And if you happen to enjoy the occasional Krispy Kreme doughnut, there’s an outlet just around the corner.

Mantra Hotel at Sydney Airport is located at 3 Ross Smith Avenue, a short distance from Sydney Airport’s T2 and T3 domestic terminals.

An opening special of AUD 159 per night in a Studio King room includes 1GB of internet access daily, a welcome drink voucher on arrival and room upgrade (subject to availability).
