“Manly Paradise”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Spent four nights at the Manly paradise over Cup Weekend. The location is excellent, right in the heart of town, lots of hotels and restaurants, with an abundance of variety. To top the location off it is situated 100 metres from the breaking waves of Manly surf beach. Unfortunately the actual unit was a bit of a let down. The bed was comfortable, but the place was verging on a bit neglected. The bathroom was tiny, there were broken tiles, a broken shower rose and the little kitchenette badly needed a make-over. Overall, a great location, spoiled by too little maintenance.

I am currently in a room here, says air conditioning but control is locked in a case and apparently I ant turn it on as others have it on heat. So NO airconditioning, rooms are average, bathroom is barely big enough to move in.
Really disappointed, don't stay here, the price may be attractive but it is well and truly overpriced.

This place is in an amazing location and the views are spectacular - but that's pretty much it. The photos really don't do the dingy rooms justice and I was a bit shocked at the attitude of the staff members whose day you are obviously interrupting. I felt like I was imposing every time I walked past them to get to my room.
There were two cockroach sightings in our room and the shower wall was covered with black hair. The shower was also cold twice.
One really great thing about this hotel is the pool deck. We enjoyed two afternoons up there watching the world go by. It was protected from the wind and really clean and enjoyable.
I wouldn't stay again though - just not enough care taken.

Reviewed 20 September 2013

this motel has wonderful views from the room of Manly Beach and the pacific ocean. On a week night it was very quiet. Facilities are excellent, hot water jug, toaster to make your own breakfast, hair dryer and iron. The view from the roof-top pool area was wonderful. Desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Access after 19.30 is by key to a night entrance, but this is not a problem.

I stayed with my 86 year old mother and we were both very satisfied. The beds (and pillows!) were very comfortable. Bathroom more than adequate.

Location excellent, within reasonable walking distance of the ferry and one block from the Corso with convenience shops and a Coles supermarket to buy food, and plenty of cafes and restaurants.

I booked a double and planned to sleep on the roll-away bed, but when we arrived the receptionist offered us a room with two singles, very helpful.

They have apartments so we plan to return with more members of the family! And take advantage of the reasonably priced parking.

Room Tip: I think most have sea-views.

Walk out the door of the motel and you are on the Pacific Coast with breakers and surfers to see. The motel is just rooms with no facilities for eating apart from in your room provided you shop in a local convenience store. Access outside fairly limited hours is via the night door using your room key. Late arrivals receive a code by email to access a key store outside the motel. Wifi is available at high prices and is not very fast. Service on the front desk is efficient.

Perfect location, great space & amenities however no room service/cleaning on Sundays.

Bit noisy on the weekend, given the very central location I would say that is normal.

Pillows not that great, bring your own if you can (I couldn't).

Showers are low, so if you are
tall this can be a bit annoying (I had to kneel to wash my hair).

Overall though nothing that soured my stay, I loved the location, view and size of the balcony & apartment. Would stay there again.

Needed a place to stay for a conference in manly this place was good and convenient location. Manly beach directly across the road and the shopping "plaza" about 200m walk. Plenty of places to eat around this motel. Rooftop pool with view of the beach. $15 car park facilities. In room air con. Bathroom small and the hot water took a while to kick in but that's the only thing I could fault it's not too bad. Staff were nice and the one lady I had on check in new me by name before I had arrived which is a nice service. Even though it was a short stay I enjoyed it and it felt safe and comfortable as well as affordable.
