Holiday Inn Warwick Farm opens in Sydney, completes Sunnybrook Hotel makeover

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the 146-room Holiday Inn Warwick Farm in south west Sydney. The previously-named Sunnybrook Hotel benefited from a multimillion-dollar makeover and refurbishment to become Holiday Inn Warwick Farm.

Located at 355 Hume Highway Warwick Farm, the hotel is near a number of commercial and business park precincts and will meet the needs of the commercial and leisure based industries of south west Sydney. The hotel facilities include an all-day dining restaurant, gymnasium, meetings and events center, heated outdoor swimming pool, a tavern adjacent to the hotel with gaming facilities, and onsite parking.

The hotel's guest rooms and restaurant, which were fully refurbished in the last 12 months, feature classic décor and furnishings. The hotel gymnasium and swimming pool have been upgraded, and work is commencing on upgrading the adjoining Oscars Tavern and the meeting and events center (both due for completion in mid-2014).
