Even though an it is an older building the new hotel owners are really working hard to improve the services it offers. Our room was spacious (there were 2 adults and 3 children) and clean. The bathroom was small but clean, the beds were comfortable, wifi was working well, the staff were very friendly and helpful. A couple of little things need to be checked - place extra toilet paper in the bathroom, ensure sufficient crockery and provide dishwash liquid and tea towel. The hotel was 1 block from Manly beach and a short walk to the shops and ferries. I would definitely stay again. Even though we had checked out the management were happy for us to leave our car at the motel while we took the children on the ferry to keep it safe and to avoid parking fines.
Very disappointing and photos deceiving on web. Understand it's under new management and renovation, although this should be reflected on web. Upon checking out complained about shower rose and how impossible it was to have a decent shower, female reception staff x 2 said they knew about it and I was 3rd person to complain. Wouldn't this be a priority to get fixed rather than new bedside tables, Even though close to beach overpriced for room , will not recommend and will not return. Regardless of previous reviews we as a couple were extremely disappointed
This hotel should never be on the list , it is worst then backpackers hostel . It had no toiletries or hair dryer in the bathroom , no shower curtain , no proper bath mat , when we had a shower the whole bathroom got wet , it had no heating in the room , no extra pillows if you needed . The list goes on and on . We travel a lot to different countries but I have never come across such a bad hotel especially when you pay nearly $200 a night . the Manager was not very friendly except offered to give a lift to some place near the hotel . Never again , what a waste of money
Quiet location super friendly staff. Close walk to the beach. Lovely rooms. Great place to relax and stay. Will definitely return. 10 min walk to manly township. Close by to great places to eat. Must see location.
I live in Manly and needed urgent accommodation due to faulty plumbing in my own home. Eugene made me feel very welcome and I found the room excellent value for money. Absolutely spotless. Apparently the motel is undergoing a refurbishment due to Eugene's takeover and I look forward to recommending all friends and relatives to stay there.
Very disappointed with everything about this place. Not only was it the most expensive place I've ever stayed but probably the worst. Have stayed in much nicer backpackers for less than half the price. It is grossly over-priced!! Whole place was depressing, the room was very old & dilapidated, was hit with an overpowering stench of bleach the minute I opened the door which took a can of room freshener, open windows & extractor fan to remove before I could bear to sleep in there. Washing up from previous guest still on the bench. No cafes or shops anywhere within walking distance so dont even think about staying there if you dont have a car, in fact dont think about staying there at all! Only good thing was that it was only a couple of minutes walk to the beach but otherwise a complete waste of money. Cannot recommend this place & would NEVER stay there again no matter how desperate.
A great place . If you are looking for 5 star accommodation then this is not the place but if you are after 5 star service then this is it. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to make things comfortable. I was there for only a week and felt part of the family. Local knowledge from the staff and the Manger is second to none. On places to vist things to do and great places to eat.
Now, I've had mixed emotions about this place. I loved it and it was exactly my vibe, but I disliked it because of its loose ends. But let me tell you something, I can't say I was overly unsatisfied with the place, something about it made me enjoy my stay. It had somewhat of a backpacker/hostel vibe but with private rooms. The new owners are very relaxed easy going (drinking and smoking up on duty), they didn't have a TV nor microwave in the room like advertised but I didn't care. It was fun and laid back, and a 3 minute walk to the water... why not. Good for young party goers! Give it a go, have a hooter with the manger and enjoy!
One of the best motel experiences I've had. Recently under new management, from the minute we arrived staff were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to accommodate my friends and I making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Manly Oceanside is easy to get to and in a fantastic spot. Close to the beach and it's a straighforward walk into Manly for dinner and drinks. Just follow the beach!! Management directed us to the best night spots Manly has to offer. My friends and will absolutely be returning!!
Great quirky clean accomodation with lovely friendly & accomodating staff.. not flash but great location & perfect for a few days of lazing on the beach.. bed was really comfy with crisp white sheets..😍
