Great location

Generally all good, only problem was the wifi. Free half hour per day in the lobby but it was difficult to get and keep a connection. Concierges always very helpful. Railway station just across the road. Ten minute walk to main shopping area.

Friendly , helpful concierge and staff; spacious bedroom with two queen size beds; very quiet room; location perfect for walking to all the major tourist sights, the Rocks, Circular Quay, Opera House, Darling Harbour, QV B building; opposite Wynard bus/ train station for transport to both air terminals. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Staff in general are excellent

Loved the position and value. Stayed there 30 years ago and was impressed at how well it has been maintained. Concierge and waiting staff very obliging. Did not appreciate an overcharge of $200 on the credit card after checking out, trust it will be quickly credited.

Great for couples or families

The Menzies is located across from Wynyard Station, walking distance to the Rocks, Circular Quay, The Shopping District, and Darling Harbour. Apart from the train trip into Sydney, we were able to walk everywhere. The food was very enjoyable and plenty of it. Looking forward to coming Back in the near future.

Great location!

Across the road from Wynyard Rail, and therefore within easy access fro Sydney Airport's Air Train, with good staff, and in the centre of "downtown", The Menzies is a convenient place to stay. A touch expensive, but worth the money.

Try the Cloudy Bay Fish Company for a top class fish meal, and some good tasting wine! An easy two to three block walk along George Street then to the Westfield Shopping Centre on Pitt Street Mall (fifth floor). A little hard to find, but well worth the effort!

Good - but be careful you get a room with sunlight!

Room was quiet and largish with two double, comfortable beds. Furniture was a bit tired and small flat screen tv could only be seen from one bed. The wall unit blocked the view for the other bed. Had to keep the blinds drawn as office block with occupants was only metres away. Little sunlight penetrated when windows were briefly drawn do to height of near building. One BIG MINUS is that unlike many hotels here and overseas, limited free internet access is not provided for those who don't have a laptop.

Terrific location but the hotel is a little tired

Great location, good sized rooms but décor is tired and restaurants/bars a little tacky. Bedroom furniture is OK, ditto bathrooms but TV I miles away from beds/seats/desks and too small to see properly (even with my glasses on!).
