My wife and I stayed at The Macleay Hotel, and we found it convenient as a home base to tour Sydney and the surrounding area. Price was reasonable compared to other properties. Potts Point is a neighborhood which is next to Kings Cross. Rooms are small, ditto with the bathroom. There is a kitchenette in the room and a grocer... More

So glad I stayed here...great service, best view of the harbour, felt safe. Loved the kitchenette. Clean and tidy, comfy bed but shower needs replacing and updating. Lovely cafes and supermarket across the road. Not far from airport. Very little noise

Stayed for 6 nights. The hotel was a great base for visiting the city. Although only 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross the area around the hotel was very pleasant and safe feeling. With the City Centre, Opera House and Circular Quay within about 20 mins walk, bus service passing the hotel, and Kings Cross Station a 5 minute walk... More

I stayed at this Hotel for a couple of nights in February and like most hotels in Sydney there were no porters to help with the bags. Transport was at the door and it was in a central location. Reception staff not really friendly but I suppose you expect that in a place as big as Sydney. Gail Laney

We loved our clean and renovated room with the fantastic Harbour view. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Situated close to town Center, you can walk through the botanical garden or take the bus just opposite the Hotel. Supermarket, Shops, Restaurants and cafe's all around. Whenever we visit Sydney again, we would enjoy staying in the MacLeay Hotel!

Excelent situation, staff very helpful, room small for 4 adults, parents and 2 daughters. enough for what we wanted, resting place and kitchen for breakfasts and snaks, as we spent all the day touring the city and surroundings. Should have been the room larger, I would have rated this place as excellent as per quality/price and situation

The area surrounding the hotel is picturesque. Kings cross station is nearby giving access to a brilliant train network. The Hotel itself is a 9 storey building. We are a honeymoon couple and asked for a room facing the Sydney harbour bridge, and one of the top floors. All of our requests were met with a smiling face. Staff such... More

The rooms are basic and sufficient with kitchenette for easy meals. The harbour views are outstanding and the location was ideal for walking and discovering the beauty of Sydney. Elizabeth Bay & Rushcutters Bay are a short walk away and the Botanic Gardens just a bit further. The swimming pool is a good size although I didn't use it. I... More

I stayed at the Macleay Hotel in Potts Point for one week end of February. I paid over £2000 AUD to stay at this hotel for a week- albeit in peak season with the Mardi Gras but this was similar price to well known chain of hotels such as The Mercure where i stayed for a week afterwards with a...

We first stayed at at this Hotel in 2004 ant last trip was our 19th, quite often we stay twice a year. The position is ideal for us. The room is very comfortable with a good view of the City, the bridge, Opera House and harbour. The staff are very helpful and friendly, some we have got to know well... More
