I booked Manna on advice from TA, since my wife needed to visit Nijmegen from UK for college research, and I have all the travelling experience.
Manna turned out to be an easy 15 minute walk from the station (which connects by direct train to Schiphol). Our room was right at the top of a rabbit warren of rooms. Some of the stair cases were as steep as on-board a ship - and could be tricky for older visitors (I certainly wouldn't recommend it to *my* parenst). But the room more than made up for this. I never had my own fireplace in a hotel room before, and the open-plan bathroom an shower were great fun. The fact that the large glass shower-cubicle had a large unfrosted exterior window just made it feel more authentically Dutch.
After a long day of travelling, we chickened out of exploring for restaurants. Instead we ate downstairs, and that was great choice. It was busy brasserie-style restaurants, with plenty of couples in their 20's and 30s, and also some families and older couples. Lots of noisy chat, some background music, and a great atmosphere. We both ate Fish (the house speciality) and basically we got to chose the kind of fish we preferred (from a blackboard of at leat 15 varieties) and then choose how we wanted it cooked. Cocktails were fine (although not the very best I've had) and house wine was also very acceptable.
Breakfast the next day was also wonderful - at least twice as much food as we should have eatem, and all of it very very high quality. Sadly my wife could not do it justice after the feast the previous night. I did the honourable thing, and finished off her left-overs!
Overall, a really good hotel and restaurant, and one I'd happily recommend to anyone going to Nijmegen.
