I stayed twice within the same month at this property. The staff were excellent going out of their way to meet our needs. It was in a beautiful location. The rooms were well appointed and the availability of a laundry on each floor an added bonus. I really couldn't fault the place and will definitely be staying there again in... More

Australian hotels tend to be quite expensive. They are mostly motels and my experience is they are very tired and cost at least $200 AUD per night (for 3 people in one room). Sydney is that bit more expensive, except the Macleay Hotel at Potts point in Sydney. Good size rooms & a kitchenette area. The shower over the sit... More

The Macleay Hotel in central Potts Point is very central well positioned to explore Sydney, surrounded by very good restaurants. The hotel is clean and modern and the staff competent and very friendly and helpful. The views from the upper floors over either, Elisabeth bay or the Harbour Bridge, are fantastic and the rooms are large and very well appointed.... More

Stayed at a room on the ninth floor with great view over Elizabeth Bay and the Heads. Although this was not one of the upgraded rooms it was perfect for me: Clean, silent and a fantastic view over the harbour.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room was perfect for our needs. Very comfortable beds, clean bathroom with great shower pressure, lovely view of the harbour bridge. It was very convenient having the fridge, micro wave etc and with the Woolsworth across the road, it made eating very affordable for us. The location was perfect with lots of bars and restaurants...

This was a great hotel to stay in, right in the centre of it all, super clean. Would stay here again. Very close to the Botanical Gardens and the night life of Kings Cross, everything is in walking distance. Great for catching the ferry or the tube.

Small but clean room. Agree with earlier comment that bathroom was tired/dated and shower tiny, but it had great water pressure. The Macleay Hotel was a short stay for us (1 night) and provided everything we needed. Excellent on security. It was even difficult to get to our friends' room on a different floor, so we met up in the... More

Room 901 has great views of harbour including opera house and bridge. Occasional noise of lift, which is outside the room, is audible if you try hard enough, over the constant gentle drone of the air conditioning unit. Neither are loud. Room was clean and tidy. Yes the bathroom was tired/ dated, but clean and tidy and towels likewise. Kitchenette... More

I have stayed at the Macleay on several occasions now and never been disappointed. The Sydney Harbour view rooms have a lovely panorama of the city and you can spend time relaxing and enjoying the spectacular harbour day or night. The rooms are older but comfortable and benefit from a small kitchen area so that after a big day out... More

Stayed here with my wife for 1 night preceeding our cruise. Wow ! totally blown away with the service, location and the property as a whole. We had a room facing the street and it was so nice to have big windows that we could open and take in the beautiful views and get lovely breezes. Public transport at the... More
