This hotel was really good. We were on the 8th floor and had an awesome view. The staff were really helpful. The bus goes right past the front of the Hotel and there is a Woolies across the road. Also great bottle shops.

Macleay Hotel is an excellent Choice for your stay right in the City of Sydney. The room is nice, clean, excellent space; it also includes a kitchenette which is handy. The metro station is like 10 minutes walking distance; there is a Woolworths Store in front of the hotel. In addition, there is a variety of close restaurants and places...

Lovely helpful staff. Our room was on 1st floor. Pleasant surprise when we opened our patio window onto a lovely eating area with 2 bbqs which could be booked for use. Nice pool, although little cold due to inconsistent weather and not being heated. Room had nice small cooking/kitchen facilities. Ideally situated for short walk through botanic gardens to Opera...

Convenient location - walking distance to many of Sydney's main attractions, beautiful room with all the necessities of home, and an amazing staff! The staff was so helpful and respectful - aiding in booking adventures, as well as remedying a transportation issue they had no control over.

We booked a harbour view twin room for 4 nights and the view was incredible. This is a lovely hotel and the staff can't do enough to help you. Comfy beds and the best selection of complimentary drinks from a variety of herbal teas to decent coffee started our mornings off well too!

Can't really fault the hotel other than it is expensive but not more so than the rest of Sydney - nice room, nice view and about a mile and a half walk through the lovely botanic gardens to get to the Opera house. Has a small pool which we didn't use. Bed was comfy enough and there is a Woolies...
