I like quite a few things about The Menzies. First, the staff are great, efficient and friendly. Second, I can see that The Menzies has a clear view about what it is and what it does. And it does it very well. Comfortable rooms in the centre of Sydney. Tourists can get to the harbour and lots of locations very fast. Business travellers who need to get to the suburbs can check into Wynyard station in moments. I like this hotel, have stayed many times and love it!

I've stayed here on and off for the past 17 years - usually when preferred other alternatives are unavailable. It's perfect for location but sub-standard for quality and comfort. The rooms are tiny, old and outdated and my room this time overlooked the bus stop opposite the hotel. It's budget, not beautiful but great for accessibility.

I did enjoy my stay at Menzies, but this was mainly due to the Bar, and Restaurant. The Room although I was provided an upgrade, was very old and tired. The rooms need a make over, to bring them out of 1980. The check in, and check was great, drink voucher, breakfast was really good too!

The place is not flash and is quite run down. Bed was adequate while bathroom was not. It would be good if you were short to suit shower height. Bar was quite good. Staff service orientation was the highlight of our stay and quite attentive. Great location next to train station and at ricks end if city. Walking distance to bridge.

I stayed here for one night whilst in town for a work meeting. There were a few things that could improve. This sounds really silly but the TV remote was really dodgy and didn't work constantly. that was frustrating. There was no temperate control in the room that I could control like an air conditioner and I woke up a few times during the night feeling hot.

We stayed here as part of our tour, so we did not choose it ourselves; however, it was very convenient to the CBD, especially the Opera House (we were close enough to be able to walk back to our hotel from the harbor area before dinner to freshen up, then head back down there for dinner and a play at the Opera House). The breakfasts were all good, and the staff was very attentive and cooperative as well. No complaints at all with this accommodation, and I would recommend it, even though realiz... Read more

I stayed at the Menzies 50 years ago with my Father when it just opened and they have retained the elegance of that era. Service , location and facilities were all ideal. Incredibly welcoming staff. I was in the older part but room was simple, lovely and quiet! Also comfortably warm! If you want value for $$$ - I definitely recommend. Brilliant location !

We had a really great two nights with our friends over the vivid festival. A good family place, maybe not so ideal for couples. We had 5 kids between 5 to 11, so found the place to be really good. It's very well located. Pool was good. Bffet was great for breakfasts with kids. Staff are really friendly and accommodating. The rooms seem to vary in size. Room 129 seemed larger than our friends.

I couldn't believe how central it was. Within walking distance to all the major Sydney sights. I loved walking around the city and beyond.

Menzies is a very good and comfortable hotel in the medium price range. It is not glamorous, rather older and quite well appointed for a stay in Sydney.

Really loved the location, easy walking to wharf or shopping. Wynyard station is just on doorstep, bus station right at the front. However, if driving a car, overnight parking is $50. The room at the menzies itself is rather old, the corridor is already showing its age, but no complain as I was using free night from AccorPlus. The room would normally cost around $170/night for the two double beds which could accomodate two adults and two kids, and I think is still quite a good value for money f... Read more

Well appointed & convenient to public train transport in central Sydney. Great for the traveller as just 2 minutes walk from airport train. Short walk (or 1 stop train) north to either Circular Quay or south to Town Hall precincts. Standard hotel room with large king bed. Only disappointment was the downstairs bar that wasn't over the weekends.

Families are the big winners when they stay at the Menzies Sydney, in14 Carrington Street. Young children are made to feel special with individual gifts that make their eyes shine! You also enjoy one of the best locations in the city ‚?? in the heart of the CBD, near iconic attractions such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbour precinct, The Rocks and the Royal Botanic Gardens. A big winner is that it's also close to Wynyard station. You won‚??t regret it!

The Menzies is so close to everything and the Staff could not have been more obliging or helpful. The bed was comfortable and the view over the park from our room was really lovely. It is a shame the hotel is so run down. The whole hotel needs painting but that really won't cut it. The bathroom was old and tiny. It had a new basin and tap ware but really needs to be 2 - 3 times bigger and brand new. Basic breakfast buffet with raw bacon and moist flavourless mushrooms. Thank goodness for the po... Read more

For the money, this hotel is a let down. The TV appears to be from the 1990's and needs a "rabbit ears" aerial to fix the picture. I didn't think analogue TV still existed ! The air conditioning looks like it has not been updated since the 1920's and is very inefficient - too hot. I am here for business for 2 weeks (oh brother !) and only 2 coat hangers (one broken) in the cupboard. So attention to detail is greatly lacking. The lift shudders as if it is going to fall apart.

Pleasant and not uncomfortable but very, very dated. The room had all the hotel essentials but was a bit of a time warp! Bed soft and bathroom clean.

Some parts of the hotel were looking a bit tired but facilities certainly made up for it - quiet room, good breakfast, very comfortable beds and pillows, very well positioned to walk and /or take public transport as just opposite Wynyard Station. A little convenience store was a bonus in the lobby and several restaurants nearby if not wanting to eat in the hotel.

So when I booked the hotel online and stated that we were arriving early and asked for early check in, I received an email confirming my request.

I have stayed at the Menzies a few times now, mainly because it is central and close to bus and train. The porters are friendly and helpful, even took my case down to the train platform for me !! Avoid the rush hour when going to the airport! The hotel is old, but comfortable enough, breakfast buffet good if you arrive early. Make sure you know which lift goes to your floor, otherwise yourself and others will spend sometime wandering the corridors.

Needless to say, the location is central and good, right in front of Wynyard Station and within walking distance to many places. But the room is not good. I probably got a room in an older tower, on level 4 facing the park. I went Sydney in Winter, and yet the room is stuffy. I have to open the window at night, but it's noisy since we are facing the park. We can hear people talking/shouting even late at night (4am) from the park. Overall, it's not a pleasant experience and we will not stay there... Read more

Great art deco building not too far from the harbour with buses and trains outside. Great rooms and amazing staff. Had a minor hiccup with breakfast which the staff rectified without any further delay. Forgot to take my bathers to use the pool & spa. Would be difficult to stay elsewhere in Sydney.

This hotel is brilliant for its location close to circular quay the CBD and transport interchanges , the staff are more than helpful and the breakfast was great , however if you find you have a room next to the lifts as we did you may as well sleep on Wynyard Station , the constant whir of the lift transporting people between floors was highly annoying to say the least , and did not stop until late evening and commenced again early in the morning , if I were to stay here again I would state I do...

My husband and I got a great deal for accommodation and breakfast. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful and a problem with the tv was quickly fixed. The hallways certainly need a makeover but if from what I have heard they are turning the hotel into apartments I guess that won't be necessary. I'll be very sad to see this hotel go, we had our wedding night there and have come back occasionally over the years. We enjoyed dessert and cocktails in the hotel restaurant by the fire which was n... Read more

I booked our first visit here to celebrate a birthday. This hotel is conveniently situated next to Wynyard Train and Bus station, only a few hundred metres from Circular Quay and The Rocks. There are two supermarkets a Chemist and a bottle shop within 100 metres of the hotel which is extremely convenient. The 'One-Four Kitchen' is a wonderful environment for a quite meal or drinks with friends, the service was friendly and efficient. The Rum Bar is a decent space and the service was fine, how...

I stayed here early August 2016. This hotel is old and if you are into old charm hotel, it's fine. The rooms are old fashioned and that suits plenty of people. The shower is in the bath and pressure is pretty poor, so don't expect a really high pressure shower experience. I had problems with the shower head/rose and it was difficult to direct. The room size was good - plenty of room. Amenities were pretty basic. The room furnishings are old. The hotel is comfortable enough, but if you're... Read more

If you want to check into a broom size closet with the ability to shave, shower and go to the bathroom at the same time, then this is the place for you. Or, if you prefer eclectic repairs to bathroom tiles with tiles that don't even match, please book here. Oh, btw, this is apparently the more expensive "superior" room. Seriously tired!

Nice cheap stay for business but don't use the bar / restaurant. Staff are more interested in chatting to themselves and menu is extraordinarily limited. In room menu is actually better. Asked for an item on the in room dining menu in the downstairs bar and was advised it couldn't be eaten downstairs. If you actually want a cafe / light meal meal, order it to your room, take it back downstairs to the restaurant. My experience was horrible, first table I sat at to do some evening work I go...

It is an old fashion hotel, but very comfortable to stay. The service is good. And the location is great. It is very convenient to reach anywhere in the area by public transportation. It is also within walking distance to several major attractions.

Do not be fulled by the location.... The Menzies is just a a more expensive version of a Backpackers. I booked a standard queen room via booking.com for 2 nights at a special rate of $380 in total. This is actually considered cheap for Sydney CBD. I hesitate at first because the Tank hotel was $6 cheaper, but I had already stayed there and wanted to give the Menzies a try. Boy was I wrong! I should've trusted my instincts and went with the former. When I first arrived to The Menzie, I was not... Read more

I spent a Wednesday night for work travel at this hotel and it was simply terrible. I paid AU$326.50 for one night. I arrived for dinner at the restaurant shortly after 6.30 pm after a day‚??s work in Sydney. I was told they were booked out and to come back in an hour or so ‚?? nothing definite. I then went downstairs to the hotel bar that advertised $15 meals but its doors were closed with a sign on them saying that it was closed for renovations / maintenance. This was surprising as one of the... Read more

The menzies is centrally located, just around the corner frrom Margaret Street in the City, Parking is in the Wynyard Lane Car Park with access to the Hotel. Rooms are quite spacious, clean and comfortable, the Bar area is good and although we didn't eat at the Hotel the menu and seating looked very good. The staff we came in touch with were excellent, would stay there again.
