“Opposite the beach - and great service”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Loved the location opposite the beautiful Manly beach and walking distance to cafes, restaurants, Corso mall and markets.

Service was superb. Family friendly all the way with great kids menu and food fab with comfy lounge with views so divine I couold have sat there all day. I now love 4 Pines beer which is the local brew on tap. Mmmm

Staff seemed to delight in looking out after my son who was constantly going up and down the lifts and out the doors on his scooter- I lost my bathers over the balcony (they blew off in the wind) and landed in another balcony below. After frantic searching to no avail cleaning staff found the bathers after I checked out and posted them to me in Perth.
Fantastic result.

Only 2 suggestions - remove the weird phalic sculpture on view from all rooms as my 9yo son commented on its shape for hours watching it. Upstairs pool area though could be more accommodating and use of the space with more chairs, loungers, shade etc

My husband booked our weekend away at the Manly novotel based on the location and the photos he saw on the internet. We were not disappointed...The staff were always very friendly and helpful to us and the other guests. Our room was spacious, well appointed and decorated in neutral tones that complemented the wonderful seaside setting. Large picture windows make full use of the lit norfol pines at night and the beach across the road during the day.The hotel also had a bar, restaurant and pool area. We did not use them but all looked great.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room

I had the opportunity to stay at this great place for a weekend for a family birthday. We had 5 rooms and the staff could not have been more helpful. Loved the breakfast and the great coffee! Of course the location is perfect, really the only place to stay if you are in Manly!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a end of the corridor room!

We had a very good stay here, right across from the beach, beautiful sunrises at breakfast, moonrises in the evening. Super breakfast buffet, great omelets from the chefs. Very friendly receptionists, concierges and restaurant staff, very good service. Close to the Corso with all the shops and restaurants, close to the beautiful ferry ride to the CBD. Family friendly. Pool on the rooftop is not heated though, so too cold in winter, but the spa is, which the kids loved and used every day. There is 20 minutes free internet in the lobby, but to get five stars internet should be for free in the room :).
