Camping ?

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: great location, most stafff were very helpful
Cons: Bathroom facitites
Location: located at North Head , therefore all the attractions of Manly
Most rooms have an external bathroom , some up to 25 meters away , reminded me of camping, rooms are very basic , however it was what I expected with a "historic " buildings

The rich history of this place whilst operating as a quarantine station for 150 years has been restored tastefully for everyone to enjoy and experience. The majority of the properties accommodation rooms have ensuited bathrooms and not the external private bathrooms that you stayed in and I apologise that this wasn’t explained.

Peaceful place

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: Air conditioning - rooms very stuffy in the warmer weather.
Location: great to view the Harbour and to catch ferry.
Nice place for a quiet rest and peaceful time. Enjoyed the stay. However, I think in hot weather it could be quite stressful with no air conditioning.

Fantastic accommodation, staff and overall ecperi

Posted Nov 24, 2014
We were impressed with q station immediately upon arrival. Staff went out of their way to ensure we were smoothly delivered from our water taxi to reception to our accommodation. We were really impressed with our room - clean, spacious with luxurious touches. We also spent some time on our balcony watching the waves. We had a fantastic meal at the Boilerhouse and enjoyed a history tour and ghost tour. We would recommend our stay to anyone and look forward to returning. The only downside was the noisy group of women who descended on the common area next to our room on both nights of our stay and were disrespectfully loud.

Interesting hotel

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: The history
This hotel (in a national park) has an interesting history but is not convenient if you don't have a car while there. We waited 45 minutes for a cab for a 10 minute trip to the Manly Wharf area and finally gave up an took the bus which has a stop a short walk away. It would be fine for someone wanting to get away from it all. Some rooms do not have en suite bathrooms and you have to use your room key to get to your private facility in a separate building. Rooms with an en suite bathroom cost more. I didn't see this noted on the Expedia site when I booked my room.

Peaceful

Location: Ferry trip to Watson's bay hotel for lunch
Q station is a lovely relaxing place to stay with so much history. The museum was great and the rooms were beautiful. Would definitely stay there again and would recomend to anyone looking for a couple of days to unwind while soaking in the views of Sydney harbour.

Beautiful location and facilities.

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: The location. Views from every room yet close to Manly and the City.
Cons: Little short staffed at reception checking in and out both times we stayed. Maybe have back up staff on call to help with queues. Staff attentive.
Location: We had lunch down at the beach Cafe. Beautiful spot. Breakfast at the Cafe in National Park. Views are spectacular wherever you go.
We have stayed here previously. The location is brilliant, views to the harbour, city and out to sea are uninterrupted. Room was furnished and styled very comfortably. Our room was large, with a separate dressing room and sitting room. Bathroom was across the hall and we really thought this would be a difficult but it was not, the size and natural light more than compensated for the separation. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The large complex takes a couple of days to explore. It is an excellent spot for walking, taking in views from every vantage point or to get around quicker we caught the courtesy bus. Coffee down by the private beach and ferry wharf was a relaxing stop on our walk around. All-over we would rate our stay as excellent.

An unexpected delight!

Posted Sep 28, 2014
I wasn't sure what I was expecting as we approached the reserve but was met by very friendly staff who guided me to the shuttle bus which took me to my room. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was a real pleasure. What was so amazing were the views, over the water and across to the city and down to Manly. The Quarantine Station was an extremely interesting piece of history and it was well worth taking in the Visitors' Centre as well as walking around the grounds. The restoration of the whole site has been done carefully and sympathetically so that a guest is comfortable and feels well looked after, but gets a real sense of staying in a piece of Australian history. I loved it!

School camp

Posted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: the view from the hotel was lovely
Location: great location and central
Stayed for a conference and would not recommend. chipped and cracked tiles in the bathroom, timber walls meant that we could hear everything happening around us. our bedhead had a thin timber wall separating it from the female bathroom. we had to wait up to 15 minutes in the cold windy weather for a bus to pick us up and take us to the front office every time. Staff where mixed, some lovely some rude. we could hear clearly people walking past our room at three in the morning, as the timber balcony was so noisy. eggs for breakfast must have been made from powder as they sure tasted like it.
