The hotel staff is incredibly friendly, and the room is adequate - especially considering the budget. This was, however, our least favorite stay on our 3 week vacation. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable, and the walls thin - every time we would fall asleep we would hear a very loud BANG!!! - not sure if it was the laundry room... More

I stayed here for a month, during which I felt right at home! The staff are so friendly and helpful. The wifi is great, the rooms are clean and well looked after. The BBQ area was really handy and they provided paper plates and utensils for us when we used it. There is a supermarket across the road and some... More

From the Macleay it was easy to get to the train station and reach a lot of sights. Upon arriving we walked to botanical gardens which was beautiful. Only bad part was walking up and down the steps by the harbor. Great fresh air in the evening and great view of the harbor. Staff very cooperative. Only thing we missed... More

Great location with all tourist attractions and shopping just short train trips away. Train station is a very short walk and while plent of eateries around don't really cater for families. Bit of a stretch calling rooms apartments as they are extremely small with everything in one room. Not really suited to families as not much room to move. Extremely... More

Six day visit in a great location whilst attending difficult family needs at St Vincent's hospital. All the staff were great, the room cleaned daily and was genuinely comfortable whilst in a great part of Sydney. The food options locally is abundant and to able to attend difficult circumstances, this was a great place to stay.

From the first greeting when we checked in, we knew The Macleay was going to be a good experience. The room was clean and the decor was crisp and fresh. We had everything we needed--fridge, dishes, utensils--as well as the basics of a regular hotel room. We loved seeing the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge from the window... More

What a great place to stay. Spacious room, great amenities and I could open the windows for fresh air. Staff are helpful, friendly and relaxed. There is a supermarket and eating places across the street. The train is a short walk and the bus is just across the street. You can walk down to and through the Botanical Gardens to... More

The Macleay is always clean, the staff are excellent and management/owners incredibly helpful. Countless stays and being a seasoned business traveller, I rate the Macleay highly. Excellent restaurants are close, with several within a few meters walk and public transport a breeze to catch. Busses and taxis out front and the train station to the city an easy 10 min... More

Lucky to have a refurbished room. Well appointed modern living with enough space for two double beds. The best part was the shower was nice and strong like I have at home. This was a level 2 room and getting down to the foyer was made easy with the 2 lifts. As I drove I felt that $30 was OK... More

We stayed Saturday night for a girls weekend and the male staff member who checked us in has fantastic customer service and very obliging and courteous. The views were amazing and it the room was small but great for the price. Hotel was quite central and about 20 mins walk to the Art Gallery and 10-15 mins walk to the... More
