Convenient location and friendly staff

Posted 14-Sep-2014
Pros: location
Cons: Cleanliness of the bathroom
Location: close to the city centre and main shops.
Room was good except the bathroom which had hairs left on the floor. It was good value for money which included breakfast.

Woken by cleaners

Posted 12-Sep-2014
We stayed 2 nights and were woken by cleaners around our room at 6:30am both mornings. They also opened our door one morning even though the do not disturb was on the door! Hotel getting very tired throughout

Location, location, location

Posted 12-Sep-2014
Pros: Andrew, the main Concierge was a real credit to The Menzies. Very helpful, knowledgeable & personable. Loved the Family room size,location & ambience
Cons: Only thing I could say would be updated LCD TV & possibly time for a decor upgrade. That said, I had no issues with the decor as its not a priority.
Location: Wynyard station, Woolies & Coles on doorstep.7/11 next door. Max Brenners 100m. 500m to the Bridge. 5 mins- Circular Quay. 10 mins Darling Harbour
What a fantastic central location. Just round corner off one of the busiest streets, George Street. 2 minute walk to Martin Place. 5 min walk to Circular Quay. 8 min walk to The Rocks and 10/12 mins to Darling Harbour. The location is everything. Breakfast had everything we expected and more. The Family room with 2 doubles was a great size for a family so you are not feeling cramped. The beds were made daily and the room was cleaned to a high level. Loved the Peter Morrisey inspired toiletries. The concierge Andrew was so friendly and helpful. I had a drive up to Newport and when going to get the car asked him if he agreed on a route and he did and when I collected the family he had printed the directions off Google. I dropped the family off when returning the car and I bumped into him around the corner and he said g'day and advised had booked the family into room 125 and cases were on the way up. it is the little things that speak volumes for me on Customer service and personalising this trip. Nice view over the Garden square and as there are a lot of bus stops I was worried about street noise on level 1 when we had been on level 11 the first 2 nights, but there was no issue with noise I found. We had a great value deal and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay and I have recommended this hotel to everyone who listens. For me, a hotel is all about price, cleanliness, location, Customer Service and location again and The Menzies ticked all the boxes.

Excellent choice across from Wynyard Station

Posted 10-Sep-2014
Pros: Position,
Cons: Only comment I would make is there is no shower gel, and in our room some bleach in the bath might remove the stains
Location: Direct links to transport was such a bonus
So easy to get about in Sydney from this location. George Street is around the corner, with its system of free transport on the 555 bus, and then Wynyard is straight across the road. I traveled with 2 children and the trip was very easy indeed, with the airport link. The room was comfortable, and the breakfasts very well provided, especially as the children ate for free. .

Excellent location in Central Sydney

Posted 10-Sep-2014
Pros: Service was excellent, location was great.
Cons: A ramp access to door would be handy but staff were ready to help with bags/prams
Location: Right across road from train station to airport, easy walk to Circular Quay and shopping areas
Really convenient location, walking distance to everywhere you may like to visit in Sydney and on the train line from the airport

Nice hotel on a handy location

Amazing breakfast. Excellent stuff service. As a minus I would point an uncomfortable cold water in the pool and poor internet.

Conveniently located opposite Wynyard station

Posted 09-Sep-2014
Pros: Location, near to Wynyard station. 7/11 downstairs, plenty of food options.
Cons: The room temperature needs to be improved with heating options in winter. Higher quality pillows, and a properly sized bed sheet. Clean pillows.
Location: 7/11 downstairs. Pub with live music in the building, restaurant as well. Near to Pitt St Mall & Westfield for shopping.
Location Great! Right opposite Wynyard station. Convenience store on premise, plenty of food & entertainment options. Room Not the best. Carpet - was reasonable clean, and so was the tables & desk. Bathroom - clean, although the water pressure was terrible. Lighting - very dark, there were bed side lights that had no way of turning them on. Mattress - Somewhat comfortable and supportive. Bed - The bed sheet didn't wrap all the way around the end of the mattress, so there was this little bit that didnt have anything covering it. Very strange! Pillows - the flattest hotel pillows I have ever used. Ended up sleeping on 3 stacked pillows. One pillow case had a bit of a stain on it which put me off a bit. Airconditioning - way too cold. Only way to make it bearable was to turn off the AC completely, which made the room stuffy. As I was there for a conference, price was the main factor as it was only for sleeping. If I was in Sydney for a holiday, I would probably not recommend it.

The Hotels location is not enough.

Posted 03-Sep-2014
Pros: It's location
Cons: Service
Location: Close to shopping and hotels
Service was slow and had a few problems with activating the room key and most of all no one told us the location of our room as it wasn't where it was presumed to be. Room service was not a priority.

Stylish hotel in the heart of the city.

Posted 02-Sep-2014
Good location, right in heart of the city yet nice and quiet as it's not on a main street. Easy acess out front for taxis etc and walkable to pretty much anywhere - in either direction.
