Picking the Best Sydney Airport Hotel for Families: Tips & Tricks

Whether you’re flying out from Sydney Airport or if you’re visiting Sydney to explore the wonderful sights and natural landmarks, we’ve got kids-friendly accommodation to suit families. Novotel Sydney International Airport located just 1km from the terminal offers convenience whilst providing kids with lots of parklands and playgrounds nearby.


Have you ever imagined airport travels to be relaxing? Imagine parking your car at the Novotel Sydney International Airport and travelling to the airport just 1km away via shuttle after a relaxing night at a hotel. If you wish, you can choose your breakfast from our a la carte menu or simply jet off early morning with a cup of coffee. Whatever you need to make your travels stress free, we’ve got you covered.

Our Stay, Park & Fly package is popular with regional travellers and families who drive and park their car with us before flying out from Sydney Airport. Offering parking, overnight accommodation and return shuttle to the airport, this package gives family travellers a relaxing and stress free travel experience whilst being an economical airport parking option.

We always recommend families with kids after a long drive to the hotel to rest and refresh at Cahill Park and Cooks River just a 1-minute walk from the hotel. Across the street, you’ll find a large playground for kids to run around in as well as parklands overlooking Cooks River and the airport. For parents, enjoy a good book by the peaceful waters as your kids play to reset before the travelling starts. Enjoy the sight of high rise buildings against beautiful parklands to witness one of Sydney’s fastest growing residential areas at Wolli Creek.

For travellers looking to explore Sydney, there are a number of secret and surprising perks of staying near the airport.

For families with kids, enjoy spacious rooms at Novotel Sydney International Airport and feel free to run around parklands without the stress of getting lost in crowds. Not to mention, Wolli Creek provides access to ALL of Sydney’s iconic sights by train on the same line.
