I stay here regularly for business. The staff are lovely, alas the rooms not so. The rooms feel stuck in a time wrap, while the beds are good the TV (and selection to watch) are tiny and old. The bathrooms often have holes in ceilings & the shower fittings are cracked and leak. You can hear when people above you... More

Location is great but part of hotel is not maintained. Room given to us had shower not working. They could not fix shower and had no alternative room. Changed room next day and gave me FREE FRUIT PLATE. What a nice compensation!!!!!

We stayed in a room on the 10th floor with two good sized double beds. Room size itself was good. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. Buffet breakfast included in our price was normal fare and quite fine. A lot of families, probably due to school holidays. Location is fantastic, opposite Wynyard train station, mid way between Circular Key/Opera House... More

Stayed only one night with a discount coupon but all staff treated us like top paying guests. Location right across from Wynyard Station makes it easy to get to and easy to shop from. Some areas show a little sign of wear but rooms clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast buffet was yummy and staff (particularly Pete) were friendly yet professional.... More

The beds are comfy and toilets are clean. But I noticed there wasn't any bin liner in the bins which made sticky foods hard to dispose without dirtying the bin, the room that we stayed in had a spoilt phone connection line and wifi seemed to be signing out often. Unhelpful staff at carpark (VERY poor communication in carpark).

Stayed here a few times for work as location is great and price is generally very competitive. I have a real soft spot for this great old hotel. However my opinion now is I will probably look for accommodation elsewhere when in Sydney. The room we stayed in (634 from memory) had one of the worst bathrooms ever, in fact... More

We were recommended this hotel by our travel agent which we don't usually use for domestic travel. It was very affordable for the week we stayed in Sydney. We were looking at another hotel in Darling Harbour, but the Menzies worked out to be the same price, closer in the city centre and included full buffet breakfast for 2. From... More

Stayed one night on a business trip as my meetings were nearby. Arrived at 11pm and check in was very easy. Booked via Qantas as part of my flight booking. The best part was getting free Internet through my Accor membership which you can sign up on the spot so effectively you get free internet. Hotel is a bit older... More

Dear Victor K, Thank you for your feedback. The hotel is one of the most historic in Sydney and as such there are some aspects that reflect this heritage. However, we ensure the rooms and facilities are neat, tidy and very well maintained. A room refurbishment is in our capital expenditure plans which will result in a substantial improvement to...
