What a great place to stay! We loved our room - good size, great bed and very clean! We loved the location- wonderful restaurants and shopping with easy access to public transportation. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous! They made us feel at home right from the start.

They were able to accommodate an extended stay for me with little notice. I really appreciate all they have done. The location is great- lots to do around the hotel. The mini kitchen was very useful for light cooking. This property is close to a grocery store, liquor store and post office. The bars and restaurants will keep you occupied...

Greeting on check-in was friendly, but glad we double-checked the room rate - because they had added on an extra $80, saying it was because I had requested a room with a view. When I had made the initial booking I emailed the MacLeay Hotel asking how much extra for a room with a view and got an email back...

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. Getting us into our room as soon as possible. Recommending a place they knew for coffee and a snack. Felt really at home. Room with small kitchenette area which was very well equipped. Nice little touches like some milk and a tea towel. Bathroom was well stocked...

The Macleay has been well reviewed, and our experience was similar to many others. We had a room with a water view, which was excellent. There are no balconies, but the windows run the length of the wall, and do open (no screens). While our bath was in need of an update, the rest of the room was just fine....

I spent one night at this hotel. Great central location. Near Kings Cross. Good restaurants and cafes surrounding it. Close to airport. Rooms were clean. Shower a little tight to get into. Otherwise good all round accommodation and would recommend to anyone.

Hotel is located along Macleay street that has plenty of places to eat/drink bot during the day and evening. Its located almost opposite a supermarket and off licence if you want to eat/drink on a lower budget. Its located about a 5/10 walk up to the Kingscross area thats much better these days and worth a visit. You can also...

A better stay than previously, the wifi worked and that made a difference. It is not a modern and fashionable hotel but it has the basics you need and is in an excellent location providing you don't need to spend all your time in the CBD - it is though only a few minutes by train to the city. Great...
