We stayed here in late June and when we checked in we were upgraded to a harbour view. This is definitely worth booking rather than the district view as it has beautiful views over Elizabeth bay and over to Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The apartment was clean and tidy and perfectly functional, we could not complain at all.... More

We stayed at The Macleay Hotel to welcome home our son from deployment in the navy. The location was perfect. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Overall the experience was very good and we would stay there again.

The Hotel is placed near King Cross station which is very convenient when you arrive at the city (if you arrived by train). The Sydney CBD and Kings Wharf are also at 30 minutes walking which makes easy to get there and go back to the Hotel. The staff is very kind a nice. Definitely recommended place. I enjoyed a...

I was very impressed by this hotel. The rooms have a decent kitchenette (including 2 hotplates), good quality cutlery, pots and kitchen facilities. Neat and clean bathroom, with great toiletries provided (not cheap stuff). Lounge and table with 2 chairs. Harbour, city, opera house and north shore views are amazing. Excellent. There's an impressive Woolworths and other specialty food shops... More

The Macleay Hotel staff are exceptional, from making the booking until the end of our week long stay everyone could not do enough to make us feel welcome and grant all our wishes. Many thanks to all. We enjoyed a family room on the ninth floor with spectacular views towards the city and the bridge and facing onto Macleay Street.... More

First time to Sydney and found this hotel on the internet. We enjoyed it so much. The rooms are small and we had to fit a rollaway into it. Luckily, we don't spend much time in there! ha! We walked to the ferry daily and found the walk through the Botanical Garden to be adventurous. Great place to stay if... More

The Macleay offered a very competitive rate in an upmarket part of town. The possible downside was that the building was having a re-vamp so a few floors were under refurbishment. On the first morning we got up there was no hot water. We called for assistance and within minutes a maintenance guy arrived. The problem was fixed within 20... More

The Macleay Hotel in Potts Point has excellent, friendly service and is centrally located. It's so close to the city, you can walk to the CBD in 30 minutes. If you are not that energetic, it's just a few minutes’ walk to Kings Cross train station which is two stops to the main Pitt St shopping area or two stops... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Macleay. It was clean and neat, had a well stocked kitchenette with a grocery store right across the street, had a good selection of local restaurants and amenities within walking distance, had a gorgeous view of the harbor, and friendly and helpful staff. As visitors of Sydney, we were within walking distance... More

Had a trip to the city during the school holidays with our 2 kids and had a fantastic time. Great central location for access to the city and eastern suburbs. Spent the afternoon watching the beautiful sunset behind the city and harbour bridge, exquisite! Amazing array of restaurants and shops nearby, perfect way to spend a weekend. This is our... More
