The Sebel Sydney Manly Beach

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Perfect location across the road from the beach. Walking distance to the bars, restaurants and the Manly ferry crossing. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and staff friendly. Would stay here again and would recommend this to others.

We booked for 4 nights during in January for the Australia Day holiday through Accor Vacation club. Reception staff were fantastic , very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is nice but in need of some TLC. Our room was great,, comfortable bed, nice Bathroom, and lounge room leading to a balcony. the only thing I didn't understand is why there is a full size kitchen,, heaps of cupboards ,, small fridge,, full benchtop with a sink, but only a jug and cups and glasses ,,,no microwave or cooktop,, overall a nice place to stay

I stayed with The Sebel Manly Beach more than 10 times over the past few years. The location, directly opposite South Steyne in Manly is second to none - if you're in the main property (front), you have a really good chance of beach / sunrise views, which are breathtaking. Although pretty basic (very clean, very functional), the rooms are not inexpensive - you are definitely paying a premium for the location, however, where The Sebel really makes up ground is in the quality of service from the international team. From the room service team to the front desk team, even e-mail interactions are pleasant, prompt and efficient. I have been delighted by complimentary gift hampers, assistance with luggage, booking babysitters - overall awesome.

Hi We have stayed 3 times now on our anniversary. The last time the porter saw me struggling in pain and kindly recommended I see The Happy Body Clinic in Manly. I googled it and was very impressed at what they do there. JUST GO IF IN PAIN. I only live 1 hour away and I will never go back to chiro. The best place to eat a delicious pizza is about a 15 min walk in Belgrave Street called Jerry's Pizza, charming place, but we got take away and sat on the beach and had a picnic. Location of Sebel is fantastic, Helpful staff and lots of places to choose to eat out. Didn't like the local Greek restaurant close by, but lovely lunch at Havana's very close. Enjoy your stay

Stayed at this hotel over the Australia Day weekend. The room was comfortable and was reasonably well maintained. The location opposite Manly beach is ideal and is also close to shops and restaurants in the area. Have also stayed at the Novotel Manly previously, both hotels are of a similar standard, although the rooms a the Sebel have a small kitchenette enabling in room cooking and are probably slightly newer.

Enjoyed a clean spacious and very comfortable aptmt, with 180 degree beautiful view across from the beach, famous Norfolk pines and promenade. Opposite surf club and flagged swimming area, and very near to the Shelly Beach walk. Jimmy and other reception staff were so friendly and obliging with every request - even volunteered to carry bags to my car free of charge. Security lift, pleasant spa/pool area. Parking underneath a bit tight but cool and secure. Attached is a wonderfully atmospheric and breezy street cafe/bar/restaurant, and its not far to walk to the ice creamery and popular Corso. A rare treat!

Great Location across the road from Manly Beach, shops and restaurants all close by. The staff were lovely, the rooms are spacious and super comfy bed! Two swimming pools, my only criticism is that there are not many loungers by the pool areas.

An excellent stay in a quality hotel.. From the the complimentary coffee in the coffee shop while our room was prepared to the complimentary use of beach towels and beach umbrella during our stay this has been a lovely experience. The staf were always happy friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, quiet and spaciouse with a lovely balcony and beach views. The final surprise was our complimentary parking. I will definitely be returning to the Sebel for our annual Manly stay.

Manly beach is a wonderful place to stay - 18 mins fast ferry to Sydney but a world away of beaches, snorkelling, surfing and sea side life with a chic edge. I would highly recommend staying here in the north tower ie fronting onto the beach. We had a lovely room - 404 overlooking the beach which is right across the road from the beach. The hotel supplies plenty of beach towels water, sun cream and boogie boards. The bar and restaurant are very good. Good cocktails service and delicious fish especially the sashimi starter. We checked out for one night to go the Blue Mountains when we checked back in our bags were in our favourite room with a sweet welcome back note and chocolates. The staff helped book various activities for us when the lack of an Oz mobile prevented it - the open air cinema on the harbour and made good recommendations for food. The travel agents messed up our booking re room type but the hotel sorted it as soon as they could and with no fuss and stood us dinner and drinks our first night. As you can tell from above, really the best thing about the Sebel is the staff. A wonderful bunch of professional, friendly and fun people. Everyone who works here is a credit to themselves and Accor hotel group but special mention for Monica who looked after us so well and at times above and beyond the call of duty. Also big thanks to all the managers we came across including Jimmy. We will be back PS The south/back tower is substandard in many ways especially location, decor and the walk way to it. I know Accor are trying to upgrade but the sooner the better and they should be careful te room classification given the "view ",

I really enjoyed the Sebel, although it is not cheap. It is reasonable for Sydney/Manly standards. The hotel is very well managed, clean and very comfortable. My view wasn't great, but it was ok for a 2 day layover through Australia. I love that the hotel was with in close walking distance of the beach, amazing restaurants, and cafes. I was visiting friends, so I didn't explore the area very much, but did enjoy a little shopping. All in all a great place.
