Reviewed 8 July 2014

Used a Scoopon voucher which included a room with facilities, bottle of wine and breakfast.
Room was small but stylish and the buffet breakfast exceeded expectations. Bathroom with tub was nice.
Amazing views of harbour.

Room Tip: choose a heritage room with a bathroom.

Stayed here 1 night and had a fantastic time. Wonderful 180*view from balcony. Rooms very impressive with heaps of space and great bathroom. Breakfast was to die for. $10 cab fare to Manly...better than driving as there is no parking. With a bottle of wine on arrival and the spectacular views...add in the history and it's a great get away. Just do it!

Room Tip: Choose a room with the harbour view and ensuite! P12 block is best

Stayed here for one night, initially booked a heritage room however was upgraded to a 3 bedroom cottage for free upon arrival which was a pleasant surprise. Arrived earlier and was treated to high tea at the restaurant which did not disappoint. Cottage was spacious for two people with comfortable beds and all the essential amenities. Be prepared to leave your car at reception and get the shuttle bus around the grounds. You could walk as it's not too far but it has lots of steep hills. Would love to come back again with a group of friends to do the ghost tour - we spooked ourselves too much to do it! Would recommend if you are looking for a unique hotel with a spooky vibe. We will be returning with our brave faces on!

Just spent 4 days at Q Station for a conference meeting. Excellent place to hold one. Facilities are all very good. Rooms with a view, amenities very good. Excellent walking options through the National Park to North Head and on site to learn the history of the Quarantine era. Staff all very willing to assist with requests. Shuttle service works well (no private vehicles on site) and the View and Boiler House dining options are very worthwhile. Excellent selection of food. An interesting place to visit and certainly worth the effort. Being above Manly you get spectacular views of the harbour and Sydney CBD in the distance. Range of accommodation options based on the old Quarantine days so something for everyone's budget. Well done to all involved in ensuring this place is worth the visit, especially to stay a few nights.

Room Tip: If your budget can do it go for "1st Glass Room with a view"

We have just returned from a 2 night stay in a Deluxe Room.
Couldn't fault the property except that our room was a little small, not really providing a sitting area inside, only a desk with a chair.
Our neighbours showed us their rooms and they were a better size with a lounge area, so just be careful which room you choose.
The room itself was really nice, and warm even without using the heater.
The chairs on the deck provided beautiful harbour views.
Very peaceful weekend and as others have said, it's like you're not even in Sydney anymore!
Breakfast was plentiful!
We had dinner at the Boilerhouse the 1st night and while service was slow and we had our main served before our entree.... (Manager fixed this and we weren't charged, although we said that wasn't necessary) apart from that the food was great! The following night we had delivery to our room from the same restaurant.
Highly recommend the 2hr history walking tour, thanks to Martin, our very informative guide.
The shuttle buses running throughout the resort make getting around easy when you don't feel like walking.
Just a small tip, if you are smokers (I know we are a dying breed!) , you can only smoke in designated areas, not outside on your deck.
Overall an enjoyable break in beautiful surroundings.

A unique Accor hotel, spread out over many acres in the old Quarantine Station on North Head. Very easy to get to and the wildlife plentiful. Great for walking and relaxing. The only criticism would be the limited vehicle access for guests. There is plenty of parking but limited to 1 vehicle. Vehicle travel around the complex is well regulated and care of the wildlife is understood but more flexibility could be given. The cottage is fabulous as is the restaurant area.

Room Tip: Had a three bedroom cottage, old former assistant Dinty.
