Location.! Location! Unique Sydney Perspective

Posted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: Its location and friendliness of staff. It offers more than just a hotel room. It offers access to Sydney's unique North Head and an historical site.
Cons: We will have to go back and investigate this question.
Location: North Head. Unique Harbour views. The old Quarantine Station. Bush walks. Close proximity to Manly for restaurants, beach and the Manly Ferry.
This was our first visit to The Q Station. My brother had recommended the hotel. It was an absolute surprise when we realised that we were actually staying on Sydney's North Head and that our hotel though appearing to be bush surrounded and isolated was in fact only 5 minutes from the heart of Manly. The room was comfortable and supplied with all our needs and being in Building P12, breakfast was served in the adjoining building. Very convenient and incidentally the buffet breakfast was excellent and complemented by views across the Harbour. We intend to explore the history of the Q Station during our next stay. Thoroughly recommended.

Wonderful experience

Posted Mar 23, 2015
It was wonderful to stay at accommodation that is so different to where we would normally stay. We stayed in a Heritage Suite meaning our private bathroom facilities were separate to our room. If we stayed again, we would stay in a room with the bathroom in the room, as it was quite annoying unlocking 2 doors to get into our bathroom and when the children were having a bath, they weren't right there with us. Amazing views of the harbour and lovely facilities. The shuttle bus does a great job picking up guests quite promptly. The Boilerhouse Restaurant is fantastic and the private beach was amazing with no waves! There is so much history and our 9 year old boy really enjoyed learning about the early settlers of Australia.

Great location with a difference.

We love this location. We've stayed twice now. It's quiet, with incredible views of the harbour, private beach, lots of history, a great restaurant and cafe on site and only a $10 cab ride to Manly with more beaches and heaps of restaurants, cafes, clubs and other activities.

Thank you for being such a great supporter of Q Station with your kind words. I agree that the property is a lovely heritage site, full of charm, elegant decor and history. I am glad that your second visit with us was just as good as the first and hopefully we will see you again soon. Kind Regards, Zac Hope General Manager Q Station Sydney Harbour National Park – Manly

Lovely location, quirky hotel.

Posted Mar 16, 2015 on Hotels
Beautiful location close to Manly. We had a suite set up for 3 adults. The main bedroom contained a double bed and a wash basin (only). The other bedroom was clearly designed as a lounge with a sofa bed which was not very comfortable. The connecting room had a desk but no power point. Bathroom and toilet were in a separate adjacent building. We were charged for 2 rooms. Value for money questionable.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this very valuable feedback we strive to exceed our guest’s expectations and really appreciate you taking the time to provide such valuable feedback. A few rooms on site replicate the original experience of those in Quarantine, and utilise luxury private bathrooms which are a few steps from their room. On booking guests have the option to stay in these rooms or not. Most of our rooms have ensuites. Kind Regards, Zac Hope General Manager Q Station - Manly

Pros: A wonderful place to stay -- we'll go again, with the family.
Location: Away from it all, Australia
Value: Upgraded room to cottage; Service: Go the extra mile, FriendlyMinibuses on call; It's a "ghost town" that's been brought back to life.

Pros: Beautiful restored buidings, large comfortable rooms, great breakfast
Cons: There was a wedding the night we were there. As our room was next to the venue, there was quite a bit of noise to put up with.
Location: We did a ghost tour at night which is a real good way to get to know the place.
We stayed at the Q Station for one night on the weekend. This is a very special place and clearly has some historic significance. At the wharf there is a small but lovely museum. There is also a coffee shop. If you want to have a meal your options are limited to the a la carte restaurant or the bar which has only a limited selection. A shuttle bus takes you from the reception to the hotel parts. The shuttle bus can also take you around the station and rides every 10 minutes or so.
