Reviewed 14 July 2014

Very good serviced apartments, basic but have everything you need. Staff is charming and very helpful, location is great and we had a gorgeous view of the harbour. Would recommend anyone to stay there, especially if you need to commute to the CBD.

Dear Guest,
Thanks very much for your review.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Your suggestion that Manly is a great option for people working in the CBD is a very good one for visitors. We are just 17 minutes away from Circular Quay, the heart of the CBD, by fast ferry. So you can work hard during the day and then retreat to our wonderful little seaside town afterwards for some R & R.
We hope to see you again soon.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley
General Manager

My husband and I have not been to Manly for 5 years and decided to stay at the Quest. On arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile and an upgrade without asking. The young man on front desk was informative and very friendly. One thing I would have liked was a name tag so I could have mentioned his name, he checked us out as well. Room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Thank you we will return again soon.

Hi Terri,
There aren't many better one word summaries to a stay than fantastic- thank you very much for passing on your kind comments.
Well done on scoring an upgrade into a one bedroom harbour view. Our studios are great, but you can't beat a view like that- particularly if it is free. I am glad you enjoyed yourself and I will keep your name badge suggestion in mind.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

We really loved our stay at Quest Manly. We have a 3 month old baby and the 3 of us were comfortable for the 5 days. The staff were highly professional. The room was very clean and had everything that we needed. We recommend Quest to anyone considering somewhere to stay in Manly.

Hi Mikey,
Many thanks for your glowing review.
I am really happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us. All of our rooms are very spacious when compared to similar products in the marketplace and having the kitchen is priceless when you have the kids in tow. But, no matter how big the room is, if your 3 month old decides that Mum and Dad won't get a holiday that is all there is to it- so well done to your son/daughter who is the true hero of this story.
Thanks again and hopefully we will see you back in Manly soon.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

We first stayed in Quest Manly in March 2012 taking the two-bedroom apartment and we loved it so much there really was no suggestion it could be improved upon during this year’s visit. We returned to our home-from-home again in March 2014 originally for a 7 night visit. We were going to return to the City after our travels to Victoria and Tasmania but loved Quest Manly even more this trip. We were relieved and delighted they had accommodation for us for a further four days though this time in a one-bedroom room. Upon arrival we were met by the charming and more than capable Tom Roberts who seems to know everything about the local area. Our two-bedroom apartment had been updated even though it was fantastic first time round. It was fully equipped and now even the Internet is included in the cost. We chose the Harbour view as there is little point travelling to Manly without being able to enjoy the beautiful Sydney Harbour. Some comments about the noise of buses seems a bit over the top. Yes, there are several bus stops opposite but it’s only people going about their business. Manly is a beautiful but busy beach resort so you must expect people to be present. Tom was always available to suggest new and interesting places to eat, drink and visit even though I used to live in Manly many years ago. It is mainly down to him that we shall be returning in 2016 and bringing more family members. There won’t be a question raised of where to stay. It simply cannot be beaten. Thank you Quest Manly.

Dear Guest,
What a fabulous review- I would struggle to write that if I was working on a marketing brief!
I am glad that Tom and all of my staff looked after you so well. As I have said before, we are all Manly locals, and we are so proud of our little seaside town and love nothing more than showing it off to our guests. It is so wonderful to read reviews like yours, so thank you so much for taking the time to write it.
We are all looking forward to seeing you again- and I will make sure Tom is on notice to be ready to send you to more places that you might have missed this time around.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

Hi Josie,
Happy 40th!
Thanks for your review. I am glad to hear that Quest Manly and Manly in general equipped you with everything you needed to make your special weekend memorable.
In any case, there is so much to do here that it is impossible to fit it all in over a weekend, so you will have to come back very soon.
Thanks again,

The apartments are located directly opposite the Manly Wharf, where the ferry from Circular Quay arrives on a regular basis. So is a perfect location for anyone using public transport. Overall I rate the Quest as an excellent place to stay, the studio apartment was spotless and bigger than expected. Much better than a standard hotel room. The location is close to the many restaurants, cafes, shops, pubs, beach, walking and bike tracks. Coles and Aldi supermarkets are across the road for those who want to eat in their rooms. A great stay and I shall return.

Hi Carol,
A great review, we really appreciate you taking the time to write it.
I am always so happy to see the hard work of our housekeepers noticed. They are the unsung heroes of any good hotel, and our team are simply the best in the business. I will certainly pass this feedback onto Shannon, our Executive Housekeeper and his team.
Our Studios are very spacious as you say and these are actually our smallest room type. All our guests always get the luxury of lots of space, particularly when you compare our rooms to many others in the CBD.
Thanks again, and we look forward to having you back with us very soon.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

Situated opposite Manly Wharf the Quest is ideally located for the 30 minute ferry ride into the city, and only a short walk from the foreshore. Helpful staff, comfortable bed, and shops (including supermarket) conveniently located. Beautiful views overlooking the harbour.

Hi Patricia,
Thanks for your great review.
Our location couldn't be better- there is a myriad of activities and venues to get lost in minutes from our front door, in every single direction.
I am glad you noticed our new bedding as well. We are reaching the end of our project of upgrading all mattresses and pillows to the best products available on the market. We have been getting great feedback on our new bedding- so much so that we have been organising bed purchases for numerous guests lately so they can replicate the comfort experienced at Quest Manly at home. Endorsements don't come more genuine than that!
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley
