Disappointed with decor and room

Posted 26-Sep-2014
Pros: Close to harbour and shops
Cons: Update the decor, treat all guests equally.
Check in was friendly but was told that the room I booked was not available however they would upgrade me as a special. Upgrade was in fact the room that I had originally paid for. Room was outdated with a nail holding the carpet down near the bathroom, there was brown stains on the wall and gashes in the wall itself where the plaster was showing. There was no doona or extra blankets (just a light sheet with a heavier overlay) and 3 pillows on each double bed. Had an infant and child with me and when wanting to sit down in the cafe to order a latte and perhaps something to eat for breakfast was told that I couldn't sit at the table I wanted as it was reserved for guests who wanted to eat (and yes, I was one) and moved into the corner to sit at a table with only 2 chairs (when there was 4 of us). Got the feeling that they didn't want others to see the children - table was never filled with people eating.

Nice hotel, hop and skip to Wynyard Station

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: Location to Wynyard Station
Cons: Refurbishment of rooms, and hotel staff promoting things to do in Sydney, and amenities of hotel.
Location: We ate at Jamie's Italian restaurant, and loved every mouthful. We booked online, and so pleased that we did!
We enjoyed the location of The Menzies Hotel. Located directly opposite Wynyard Station made it an easy transition to/from the airport. Rooms are tired looking and could do with a refurbish to match the image of the foyer and outside appearance. Our toilet still had the Caroma toilet label price tag on it! Hotel staff were welcoming, however, they weren't forthcoming with information on the hotel's amenities, and location attractions. We had breakfast included in our accommodation deal, and had to find out for ourselves where to go and hours of operation. Breakfast was nice, good selection. We'd stay here again for an overnighter, but not for a long weekend.

Brilliant location

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Hotel staff were fantastic the lobby great! However the room occupied was very disappointing. Extremely soft mattress on the bed, also on castors so the bed moved all the time (& squeaked). Cleanliness wasn't great & furniture needed to be refreshed. I know it's an old building but the lifts were very slow with no indicating available. Breakfast was great.

Pros: location

Woken by cleaners

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. .
