Some of the joys of travelling are being surrounded by planes soaring into the skies or landing smoothly on the runways, people enjoying great food and drinks over excited conversation, and the buzz of knowing that we’re going somewhere.
Add some great hotel service and a king-sized bed with luxurious linen to the mix, and most of us are walking along with a spring in our steps.
You can experience all of this, without waiting in any queues, going through security, and without even buying a plane ticket, with a stay at The Branksome Hotel and Residences at Sydney airport.
Of course, you can add a ticket to somewhere exciting as well, but if you enjoy a weekend getaway, some top-notch plane-spotting, and great food and wine with true Asian flair, you don’t have to take off too soon. Whether it’s the studios, or the 1, 2 or 3-bedroom apartments, all of their rooms feature contemporary furnishings with special touches such as motorised black-out blinds, a digital concierge and floor to ceiling glass windows.
The Plane Spotter Garden Bar on the hotel’s rooftop is a year-round drawcard for plane lovers, and Nate’s restaurant on the ground floor has a menu that has plenty of modern Australian dining options (think steaks with mash and vegetables, fish and chips and chicken salads) alongside Asian classics such as Thai curries, stir fries and satay chicken.
The indoor pool is a highlight for many guests: it’s an oasis in a busy hotel, with Indigenous artwork lining the walls, and huge windows allowing the light to flood in. Even if you do have a ticket to somewhere special, The Branksome staff will ensure that you enjoy the journey as well as your destination.
