We enjoyed our stay at Macleay lodge but our room was really warm and stuffy. There was no AC and only a ceiling fan and the open window had minimal airflow. It was ok while the weather was below 30 degrees but I would've have wanted to be there when the temperature pushed 40 the following week! The room and...

I stayed at Macleay Lodge in early December for 5 nights after the end of a long work trip. I had stayed here 12 months earlier and was happy to return as the Lodge offers excellent value for money. I stayed in a single room for $60 a night - a bit on the small side but it was clean...

Macleay Lodge is a great place to stay for few nights and close to beautiful walks in the Botanic Gardens, ferries across the harbour and nightlife in Potts Point/Kings Cross. Staff are very helpful and friendly and you are 1 min away from about eight great places to get good coffee, breakfast of brunch.

A perfect location in trendy Potts Point. The lodge offers very good value for money. Rooms are basic of course, but with comfortable space. Having a little kitchenette, fridge, micro and table is a good advantage. I stayed in an premium room on top floor which was great. Only 4 rooms sharing a bathroom on the same floor, hence 5meters...
