The Sebel Manly Beach
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Manly
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2014

The rooms are generous of size, and comfortable. We had a pool view room which was nothing too fancy as far as views go - as opposed to an ocean front room. Staff are average to good - not going out of their way to be of assistance but without being stand-offish. I felt they could have probably improved a little with their service overall. Ive stayed in many Sebel Hotels and the staff have been - generally speaking - excellent. This establishment didnt reach the same level, however. Good wine bar below and decent restaurants near by.

Room Tip: Ask for the ocean front rooms, the higher up the better

Stayed here over the weekend and there was a significant price difference between the hotel that sits across the road from the beach/ocean and the hotel I stayed in, behind the ocean view hotel. I wasn't a fan of having to walk through the side of the bar to get to the back hotel, especially if you are carrying bags and the bar is full. Plus you exit the front hotel and walk past the kitchen, which at times smelled a little ripe. The back hotel had its own entry, very nice rooms, good air-conditioning, and was quiet. The phone didn’t work initially, which is bad considering how far you have to travel to get help, but they had it fixed quickly. The hotel “group” is located at the end of the strip, so not very loud, even when there are events on the beach. If you have the cash stay in the front but even the back is not that big a difference.

Room Tip: If you have to stay in the back hotel pick an upper floor on the Ashburn street side. The other side...

i stayed at the manly sebel on the 8th feb. and after paying 330 dollars plus parking (which was later dropped) i and my wife slept in singles beds even after asking for the problem to be fixed. then when my wife left behind a little mirror to her, her favourite , it was then posted COD with a pick up the other end of $15 it soon became her least favourite. what a disaster of a weekend .Tyran Hay has tried to fix the issue but so far no corrective solution has been found,

After staying in a 5 star downtown Sydney hotel this was a welcome reprieve. I checked in for one night and stayed for four! Oceanfront room was just right, nothing fancy, but very comfortable. I'm not sure you could find a better location in Manly. Perfect for morning walks around the whole beach right up to North Head passed Shelly Beach. The staff is what made my stay most memorable and because of that and the location I will go back. Having Allesandra and Kim greet and treat me so very professionally and courteously was like getting a breath of fresh air. Tyron the next morning was just as nice, but if every hotel had Allesandra greet you, traveling would be so much more pleasurable.

Room Tip: Try to book ahead and have an ocean facing room. Fusion coffee, Bench, and Fish Mongers a block away...

Good location: as close as you can get to beach, at end of South Steyne, right near the flags; also on one-way part of the street so much less traffic. Room is comfortable and has air con and a nice sized deck.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Hot tips: Beach towels are available from reception, and the key cards are not waterproof so don't put them in your wetsuit pocket like I did!
