Recent guest reviews
Hotel is right across the street from Manly Beach, south end, easy access. Only challenge was getting luggage up front steps, had to use the lift to get up to the lobby from the street. Great place to stay!
This Hotel is in a fabulous location right on Manly Beach, close to restaurants and a 5 minute walk if you want to take the ferry into the Historic Rocks Area of Sydney, Tarongah Zoo or any other location. We actually got a better rate when we checked out than posted, so that was also a pleasant surprise! I booked one of the cheapest studio rooms and did not expect a view, but was pleasantly surprised that, even though we were in a building behind the main one, we still had a partial ocean view! We were in room 517 if that helps! The only downside was that I did not like that the hotel buildings were not linked, meaning that we had to walk down a back alley to get to our building. This was fine when I was with my husband, but I would not have wanted to walk down the alley at night on my own. The area is generally safe, but I did not like the alley entry. I was also surprised we had to pay for internet these days (which cost us $70 for 4 days), as the daily rate was $20 and the weekly, $70. If you do have a car it is also an additional $17 a day. Overall, I would stay there again and recommend it!
Only complaint is that our room was in the "south tower" which meant leaving the main tower and walking through a back alley which wasn't at all aesthetically pleasing (trash cans and soot). I would stay here again but would request the north tower.
We had an oceanfront view and it was beautiful. The shower pressure was great. The hotel is in an excellent location, and the room had everything we needed but don't expect any frills. The pool is between the bldg's so you don't have a view of anything special but it's a pool! We were determined to see koalas and kagaroos before leaving Australia, but we were having trouble deciding which place to go to for the best experience. One of the nice girls at the front desk suggested the "Koala Park" (1 hour away) for the best experience and no crowds. We followed her advice and it was awesome! We hand fed kangaroos, got to pet and get pictures w/ Koalas and the admission was half the price of any of the other options. No crowds either :)
