    The price was fine and the Lodge was only okay for the money i paid. At least i had my own Bathroom. The staff were fine too

    I didn't like the area it was a bit dodgy, i wouldn't stay there again. You get what you pay for. It is not worth staying in that side of the City, you are better off paying extra to get a nicer side of town

    Exceptional

    I was so impressed with the staff and rooms at Macleay. My mother and I stayed for 6 days, and walked to the Botannical Garden almost every day. It's a perfect location for those keen on public transport (take the King's Cross stop and walk to Pott's Point), and there's a Woolie's up the block and a deli on the corner that is to die for! Our room had a view of the street and a fireplace, and while I was afraid the street noise would keep me up, it was actually very quiet and I'm not a heavy sleeper. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who plans on a trip to sydney.

    We didn't have maid service, but when we asked for new towels and extra tea/coffee, they were happily refilled and it was no trouble at all. If maid service is a big deal to you, talk to the receptionist.

    The man at reception was very helpful. He looked up the trains so my daughter and her friend could get to and from the concert with ease. He also told us where to go to park the car and where it was safest to be. He was very pleasant.

    It was clean, location perfect, quiet, the balcony, the room was spacious.

    Having to share a bathroom, there wasn't much light in the room.

    location

    the room was very poor standard, even by budget terms, dirty bedding with holes in the sheets is totally unacceptable even in a budget hotel. The hotel bathrooms are so small that you cant even move in them.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and bath room were clean, easy access to public transportation.

    No heater in the room, and the room was haunted

    Very good

    It was close to the station - walkable distance, the staff were very helpful in informing us how to get to places, it was very accomodating with early/late checkins/outs

    The walls were very thin - we could hear all the cars outside and people walking upstairs etc.

    The Lady at the counter was not very polite when I emailed her regarding the supposed "airport transfer". I guess a template write up could be posted up on their website or yours to explain to guests how about to buy those tickets from Syd airport. she also claimed "the train station is 3 minutes away" which is utter bull because it was at least a 10min walk. I did not realise that Macleay did not have a toilet in the room- I guess it could have been my oversight but I did not remember seeing it on Booked.net's website either. definitely wud prefer springfield lodge alot more-which I thought was similar to macleay's as they were advertised on the same page.This was very misleading. Springfield Lodge is so much better for the same price

    Good

    Very unhappy with Hotel on this occasion.

    We were required to climb 42 steps of stairs to get to our room, and the bathroom was quite a distance from our room, and at our age this was not good.I asked for and paid for a Premium Room and it was not as good as the room we had before at a lesser price.

    One of the worst overnight experiences ever. We told this at the reception. They laughed and confirmed they had some problems. What was so bad about the room: outside the window was a loud generator, the room smelled, cockroaches in the shared bathroom, in the room was also the staircase to the next floor. Horrible experience!!!
