The ferry to Sydney is a just across the road, the beaches and local dining are superb. The facility is excellent. I cannot rate this more highly. We had a brilliant time and would recommend this location to anyone visiting Sydney.

Room Tip: Get a beach view. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel - but the noise was minimum. The view...

Perfect location, great staff and a beautiful room. What more could you ask for. Manly has the harbour and the beach making it such an interesting place to base yourself while in Sydney. You are a short ferry trip to the heart of the city or any destination around the harbour. Fantastic restaurants, bars and shopping right at your door. I will happily stay again.

Hi Justin,
That is wonderful title of your review, thank you very much!
You make a very valid point, on the accessibility of Manly to the Sydney CBD. Ferries are frequent, and depending on the type you choose, you can be in the heart of Sydney in 17 minutes. For out of towners that need to be close to the CBD, this is probably the best tip you will ever get. Work in the city and stay in Manly- you will be very happy you did. If you book a one bedroom apartment, you can even watch the ferry approach from your balcony, to save unnecessary waiting time at Manly Wharf.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

Good service, great location (opposite Manly wharf) and very good sized apartments. I was a last minute booking, and the staff were courteous and even upgraded my booking, which was a lovely surprise. Clean, comfortable and welcoming.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view! If you take advantage of the car parking, remember to ask Reception for...

Dear Guest,
Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us.
I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your upgrade to a Harbour View One Bedroom Apartment. The part of Sydney Harbour that our One Bedrooms look over is a spectacular sight, particularly when the sun is setting. It is simply a magic view as you say.
I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your break with us- it sounds like you needed some R & R and it is wonderful to hear that Quest Manly delivered this for you.
See you next time.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

We stayed in early August 2014 and we booked in to stay in a studio apartment. When we arrived they had kindly upgraded us to a one bedroom with a view over Manly Wharf.... for free! The apartment was extremely hygienically clean (im very fussy when it comes to this). The view was amazing which topped of our weekend away. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The apartments had the standard amenities with clothes washer and dryer, hair drier, oven, microwave etc etc. Loved the fact that there extra towels kept in the bathroom cupboards! The bed was A-MAZE-ING and very comfortable!!! The Quest Apartments are located in a fantastic location with all sorts of shops a stones throw away... and i cant forget the beautiful beaches!! Great resturants on ground floor of the apartment block. Will absolutley stay there again :)

Room Tip: The studio apartments do not offer beach/manly wharf views. You must book a one/or more bedroom aprt...

Dear Guest,
What a wonderful review, thank you very much.
Great to hear that you enjoyed your upgrade- sometimes there is nothing better than receiving an unexpected (but good) surprise.
Our Housekeeping Department are relentless when it comes to the work they do, so it is great to see that this is being noticed so consistently by our guests.
And, another thing that is coming up frequently of late with our reviews are our brand new, top of the line luxury beds. I have said previously that we have even been arranging bed purchases for guests who have enjoyed their night's sleep with us that much that they needed to replicate the experience at home. Please keep this in mind next time you are in the market for a new bed, as we will be only too happy to help.
Kind Regards,
Mark Stanley

Dear Guest,
Thanks for your great review- I will take "Awesome" as a one word appraisal eleven times out of ten.
I am glad you enjoyed Manly and our wonderful location in this fabulous little place. Great to hear you got good use out of the complimentary parking and WiFi. We try and pack as much into our room rates as possible, so that it leaves a few extra dollars in your pocket to spend in any of the wonderful attractions within minutes of our front door.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
