Staying here for work was a bonus. Clean rooms, older hotel but great staff, great food and quiet. Best location, walk to the ferries and great views of the bridge and Opera house at Circular Quay. Trains just across the road and walking distance to shops and restaurants.

The Menzies might not be all glitz and glamour, but it can't be beaten for proximity to public transport, and it's within walking distance to the Rocks, the Harbour, Circular Quay, shopping, restaurants, bars etc. The rooms are simple, but adequate, and most importantly they are quiet! I've stayed here several times and never had a problem with cleanliness, and... More

We stayed at the Menzies for two nights recently after having stayed here before about two years ago. The room was very small and the tv was about the size of our computer monitor. I understand that it is an old establishment but I'm sure the last time we stayed there our room was a little bigger. We were in... More

Spent a night at The Menzies with the family for my birthday. The property is on the old side but was still well presented. Went to watch TV and it would not work. Contacted reception who got onto it quickly. When we got back to the room all was working and they provided us with two free drink vouchers for... More

You can't really get a much better location than the Menzies. Right across the street from a train station and very short walks to most of the main attractions. This was our draw to the hotel. It is about 10 minutes to the Rocks or Darling Harbour. The room was adequate. 4 of us in 2 double beds. What was... More

I've stayed at the Menzies before, and because of the close proximity to Wynyard Train Station, chose to stay here again. It was only a quick overnight stay but the room was large, and very comfortable. Room Service was fantastic, and the breakfast Buffet at the Carrington Restaurant on the first floor was amazing, although I think I ate too... More

Literally. Cockroaches in the rooms and we're talking all the way up to the top. Unsurprising as the rooms are pretty rank. Not sure what the mould smell was linked to ... not just the room as it was in the corridor as well ... possibly the roaches? Couldn't be the aircon as that didn't work, just loudly vibrated. Turning... More

Stayed at this hotel for a conference last weekend and it was unpleasant from start to finish. Arrived at 7.35pm on the Thursday night and had to queue almost 25 minutes to check in - staff seemed to think it appropriate that all 3 of the deal with one group on 14 people. Finally got to the check in and... More
