Great location for the tourists and visitors. Very tidy and clean, staff very friendly. Security parking a bonus. Manly is family friendly but would also suit the café set and those keen to try the surf. Self catering suited us. The kids shared the sofa bed, we had the bedroom for privacy. Highly recommendable.

Room Tip: we were in room 126. great view of the water/ harbour, just across the road . even though it was at...

Hi Deen,
Thanks very much for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am delighted that you enjoyed yourself.
Our location is fabulous as it is close to everything Manly has to offer, however if you want to get into the Sydney CBD it is only 17 minutes away by fast ferry or 30 minutes by the traditional ferry. Manly Wharf is literally on our doorstep, so it could not be more convenient.
Manly is very popular and can be expensive in peak season and that is why we continue to offer complimentary parking and WiFi internet for all guests, leaving more money in your pocket to enjoy our fabulous cafes, restaurants, bars and activities.
Hopefully we will see you back in Australia and Manly soon.

We stayed at Quest for a week over the New Year and found it perfect. Travelling with friends, we had two wharf facing apartments, one of which with sofa bed for our daughter. We specifically booked a sea view - if you want that make sure you book it, as otherwise the views are of the street. The property only has two floors and the higher one is quieter, but the street noise below was not an issue for us, as the rooms were well soundproofed. The apartments were well appointed, clean and comfortable and serviced daily, except Sunday. Sydney is a 30 minute ferry ride away, but rates as one of the best boat trips in the world, so not a problem as there are 2-3 services per hour most of the day. Buy a My Ferry card which covers all journeys on ferries, trains and buses for seven days and only costs $61 (half price for children), We enjoyed eating at Hugo's on the wharf opposite and the 4 Pines Brew Pub just down the road. On our next trip to Sydney, we would not hesitate to book the Quest at Manly again.

Room Tip: Book wharf facing unit to get the best views.

Dear Guest,
Thanks for your review and for your very useful tips on getting around. I agree, the ferry trip is spectacular and is so well known for a very good reason.
Well done too on finding the 4 Pines Brewery. It has become famous in Manly for its fantastic beers, great food and old-fashioned service. A must do (among many others) for all visitors to Manly.
Thanks again and hopefully we will see you again next time you are in Sydney.

We are a family of four (our children are 4 and 10months old). We booked one week prior to staying, right from the initial contact, all of which was via email (thanks Tom) it was responsive and accurate right down to the little touches that included a toiletry pack for our bub left in her cot. Highly recommend the Accom, service and location. We are from Sydney (Hills District) and will go back.

It's in a great location, close to ferries, beach, shopping and restaurants. It's clean and the staff are friendly. Secure parking and wi fi are included in the price. Our family has been staying here around this time for the past 4 years and with luck will be here again next year.

We stayed 3 nights here immediately on arrival in Sydney after very long international flight. Front desk staff simply amazing, and despite very early morning arrival room was ready - such good news. Nothing was too much trouble.The one bed unit was very spacious with extra sofa bed very useful. the kitchen was very well equipped and the washing machine and tumble dryer in the bathroom such a bonus!
Location fabulous too. 2 minutes from the sea in one direction and 5 minutes in the other and the Manly Ferry a stone's throw away. Everything was spotlessly clean . Despite the premium price it was definitely worth it and would highly recommend.

We recently stayed for two nights in a 1 bed beachfront unit.
The location is first rate and the views are fantastic.
The room was spacious and well appointed.
The Gym was decent. The only thing lacking is a swimming pool but you are literally 25 yards from the beach so its not a big issue.
The cleaning staff were fantastic and the Front Desk friendly and professional.
We paid top dollar but if I could get a more reasonable rate we would definitely stay again.
A good place to stay in Manly!

Room Tip: second floor would be better.....both noise and view wise
