I stayed here for just under a week when visiting family, It's in a good location with a supermarket opposite and plenty of restaurants nearby. The train station is a short walk away and from there you can access central Sydney. The staff were very helpful. The room I stayed in was clean and it was very handy having a... More

My parents stayed for a week (I live locally) and the Macleay Hotel was centrally located, close to amenities and transport, friendly and warm, competitively priced, safe and secure and provided exemplary customer service. The rooms are clean, functional and the harbour views terrific. Kind regards, Gary Wells

My room had a view looking East over Elizabeth Bay. In the morning I watched the sun rise over Sydney Harbour Heads. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my studio apartment had kitchen facilities. I bought yummy gourmet food walking down from the station and reheated them in the microwave then ate them looking at my amazing view.

We've stayed here several times and it's consistently clean, good value and a great base for hitting the sights. The view is a bonus!! There's a train station nearby, a Coles across the road and lots of cafes and restaurants on the street to choose from. The Sunday market at top of street is an added bonus.

My colleagues and I have stayed at the Macleay Hotel on at least 5 occasions and will definitely keep coming back. The hotel is clean and the rooms well appointed and we always have a water view. You just couldn't ask for a better location - plenty of great restaurants and shops just outside the door and we love the... More

This is the perfect place to stay if traveling on a budget. It is nestled in a small quiet community with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The best part is the hotel has direct access to bus routes, tour shuttle routes and an airport shuttle.

The reception personnel was most helpful and gave us some really good information for places to see and restaurants close by. Lovely roomy unit with excellent kitchen facilities, so important with young children. The crisp white linen and comfy beds were appreciated as were the soft white towels and washers (washers are not always provided). Billy Kwong's restaurant recommended by... More

This hotel is about 30-40 minutes walk to circular quay, there is also a bus that is not too far of a walk from the hotel. Its in a great location, away from all the havoc of kings cross which is just next door. The woolworth opposite the street is awesome. The rooms are tiny, however this maybe a norm... More
