I have selected 3 stars, however i don't feel the 'average' is what i would give this hotel, it was a 'good' three stars! Upon our travels round Australia, this was our most 'on a budget' of the hotels we stayed in, however we found the staff at the Macleay Lodge were by far the best throughout our trip -... More

great location in Potts Point (5 minute walk to King's Cross, 20-30 minutes to CBD and Opera House; supermarket and restaurants just around the corner); rooms with kitchenette, microwave, refrigerator, and kettle; friendly staff; affordable price

MacLeay Lodge is quite well situated. The room was clean even if it was a bit old (part of its charms). The people were kind and helpful. I recommnd this place if you don't want to go to a backpackers place.

I arrived in Sydney from England and wanted a place to rest and chill for a few days before I went to a hostel. I can't fault the lodge, it's quiet and in a nice area. There is a woolworths a few minutes up the road so can buy your food and make it in the room. The room itself... More

Small and clean rooms. Shared bathrooms. This is none smoking building. Great hospitality. If you need to book a taxi, just inform the concierge counter and they will do it for you with discounted price. Great location. Walking distance to Sydney Opera House and other landmarks. Will come again in future.
