Great centrally located hotel in the heart of Sydney. There is a train station and bus stop just opposite the front door, also plenty of popular attractions within a ten minute walk of here.

Large, modern hotel Ideally situated for Cirrcular Quay, Buses and Wynyard Railway Station.

Not cheap, but only to be expected in such a popular place and handy location. Staff more than friendly, helpful and welcoming. Would have no hesitation in returning in the future.

Excellent location

Arrived early but was booked in and unpacking within 15 minutes. Excellent location within 10 minutes walking distance from Harbour bridge and Opera house. All staff very obliging and friendly. Prices on a par with outside bars. This is not a ultra modern hotel but I am glad this has not been demolished and the building is being preserved.

Menzies great value hotel

Good location and great service . Andrew Austen, Hotel Concierge. Very helpful not only with us and with other Hotel guests. He provided the extra touch that made it easy for us to navigate Sydney. Transportation, tickets to the Opera House and various attraction. The Hotel is convenient to all transportation hubs and walking distance to most everything. Recommend.

An Excellent Stay in Sydney

I had to change my reservation more than once and the Menzies was more than accommodating! Location was perfect. We didn't have a car and was able to come directly from the airport using the train and the tram stopped directly in front of the hotel. We were able to walk to all of the highlights of Sydney and the biggest compliment goes to the concierge, Andrew! He helped us in many ways including assisting us with a bellman to take a bag that needed to be shipped across Australia. A must stay in Sydney!

Disappointing

Our room had not been cleaned properly when we checked in (sticky glass marks on at least 3 surfaces) so we went out for an hour to give them the opportunity to sort it out. On our return, nothing had been done so we were moved to a "better room" - I would hate to see worse. If I hadn't paid in advance for the room, I would have left. Two bottles on water were left on the bedside tables which I assumed were complimentary - had I drunk it, we would have been charged $8 per bottle! Don't mind paying over the odds, but this was a complete rip off and made us very wary of the charges for anything else. The rooms were last decorated in the 1980s and the furniture was way past its best. Find somewhere else to stay.

good value

We had previously stayed at this hotel & had a classier room, the room this time was a bit shabby & in need of a re-furb, but it was large & comfortable although very little wardrobe space. It was not the room as advertised on-line. The staff were very helpful & room service meals were excellent. We would stay there again.
