I relly enjoyed staying at the accomodation. The location is perfect, and the accomodation as well. It is clean, and tidy. The people running the accomodation are nice, and helpfull. As I was staying during Christmas and newyears Eve, I got the pleasent surprise of being welcomed with a Christmas card, and a nice bottle of sparkling wine. I would recommend this place to everybody.

The location is perfect at only 10 minutes walk from Kings Cross train station and half an hour walk from Circular Quay going through the Botanical Garden. There are numerous of nice restaurants, bars and cafés near by. MacLeay Lodge is a lovely hotel, the room was very cosy, very clean and quiet, Benoit at the reception was very helpful and made me feel home. I would definitely come back and will recommend this place.

Macleay Lodge is in a great location, not far from Kings Cross railway station and also a decent but pleasant walk to the Sydney CBD. My room was clean with all linen provided plus soap, shampoo and conditioner and when I mentioned that my heater was not working properly, the friendly staff had it fixed that day.

I stayed here for 5 nights in early June. This is a quaint and lovely hotel in Sydney. I had a budget single room on the 3rd floor. The room is small, but for the price it was very nice. Plenty of channels on the TV, wifi works most of the time, but was slow at times. The shared bathroom is very nice and cleaned daily. The hotel is going under some renovations. Seems like new carpeting was installed recently. Check-in was very easy. There is an airport transfer available for only $14AUD, which is $4AUD cheaper than the metro cost. The hotel is about 1/2 mile from Kings Cross on the Bondi Jct line. There is a Woolworths across the street. There is a lot of great restaurants nearby. Overall, great stay for great price!

Our room was small, but very clean and comfortable. it had a fridge, aircon, kettle and sink. We accessed the wifi easily. The loo and shower was three doors down the corridor with another in the other direction. The chap on reception was very helpful about tours etc. There were plenty of places to eat close by and we also walked to the nearby wharf which took maybe 10 minutes (but beware of the stairs to climb coming back!), the opera house was a 30 min, very pleasant, walk.

I was travelling on a budget . . solo traveller. Macleay Lodge was perfect! It had everything I needed, TV, kettle, nice clean showers and toilets, aircon . . I could not have asked for more (except a hairdryer!) Very quiet and super dark curtained room, free wifi. Very comfy bed! The staff were incredibly friendly and helped me out before, during and after my stay. The location was great, close to bus stops and Kings Cross station for the City and airport. Location was great - loved the versatility of Kings Cross - lots of cafes, restaurants and even a Woolworths very close by. I would recommend and certainly stay again.

Reception Staff were lovely. Room was a great size. Awesome location right in Potts point near nice restaurants, Woolworths and the Beach. Was a short walk from Kings X station Love the Carpet! Will stay again

First stay at macleay lodge last minute for me type booking. All rooms have shared bathrooms spotless and no lift. Had to have a room change a door issue so I actually got to utilise 2 single rooms. Both nearly exactly the same small space to hang clothes fridge kettle toiletries tv air con bedside tables and a sink. Which came in handy for brushing teeth washing hands etc. both rooms ground floor had 2 bathrooms always available and spotless. Very very quiet at night yes you can here the restaurant out back but not a bother. All staff both female were very helpful and couldn’t do enough for you. Tip I actually found the smaller shower had better water pressure. Would stay again as I love this area.

Macleay Lodge is the place I was looking for... I was in Sydney just for four days and I needed a hotel close to the city centre but at the same time not very expensive. Macleay Lodge is situated in Potts Point, near to Kings Cross. There's a stop of the Big Bus (red touristic bus hop on hop off) few meters from the lodge and that's the way I chose to move across the city and to Bondi beach. The toilets are in the corridor, shared with other rooms at the same floor but they are always clean. I was at the ground floor, my room was very small, I had to leave my clothes inside my suitcase and that's my only complaint.

This was our best place we stayed in Australia. Great room, great location, and very friendly staff. They provide maps and can arrange for transportation, tour, etc. There are a ton of yummy restaurants around and you can walk or take the bus everywhere! The shared bathrooms are small but we made it work. Would stay again!
