Not a nice hotel by the beach

Posted Mar 27, 2018
Pros: Not much
Cons: Room cleanliness. WiFi Reception at the premises not 500 metres to drag luggage Notice of stair climb (three of my guests have walking difficulty)
Location: Location was OK
Very disappointed with hotel, mountains of stairs to climb no lift. Room very small and not very clean. Photo pictures on website very deceiving. No air conditioning

We were there for a sporting event. It was in a po

Posted Mar 3, 2018
Pros: Great position for the price
Cons: I thought it was well appointed for the price
Location: It is close to all beach, harbour, dining and shopping activities. Very easy to locate when coming from ferry terminal
The hotel was basic, as we expected. It was, however spotlessly clean and well presented. There was plenty of hot water and all facilities were as described

Pros: It had a good location, close to the shops and the beach.
Cons: The level of hygiene and cleanliness could be improved.
Location: It was walking distance to the shops which was great and to the beach.
The stay that I experienced at Manly Beachside Apartments was not at all what I had expected for my family and I. The room was small and not air conditioned which isn't ideal for Sydney's hot weather, however there was a fan that helped the slightest. At closer inspection there was sand found in the beds along with dirty sheets and we had cockroaches crawling around the room which definitely made it an uncomfortable stay for us. The staff were really friendly and helpful, when bringing these issues to the attention of the hotel staff they assured us this wasn't normal and tried to make the stay more comfortable for us by bringing us new sheets and towels however we still didn't feel comfortable staying there. We only managed to stay there one night before checking out to find an other place to spend the rest of our visit. I don't think I would recommend this accommodation for any of my family or friends to stay.

Run down noisey no air conditioning.

Posted Feb 8, 2018 on Wotif
A real disappointment. No air conditioning for a start. Check in was confusi g was called to go to one location then when arrived told to go to another. Bed was terrible old and uneven. Tv was fixed to the wall at an angle you couldn't see easy. Some of the channels didn't work. The remote would only work very close up. No coffee provided only tea and sugar. Kettle wouldn't switch off. Bathroom window left open but no flyscreen. Indifferent staff on check in. Very run down and untidy. Probably should be called a backpackers hostel type accommodation.

Light, clean and roomy apartment 5 mins from beach

Posted Feb 8, 2018 on Hotels
It was a two-day beachside holiday in one of our favourite places. The apartments are very pleasant - clean, bright and roomy - and the guys whp manage it at the associated backpacker hostel are good/friendly. Just to point out some lack of perfection: it is on an all-night noisy road; and fold-down sofa bed that we didn't need could not be folded back to be a sofa - a temporary problem, we werer assured!

Easy accommodation and close to the beach

Posted Jan 22, 2018 on Wotif
Location: Manly is a fun place with plenty to do. The beach is lovely, or you can choose the calmer waters of the harbour.
A very easy place to stay in. Nothing flash, just a simple beach affair in a good location. Probably over-priced, but I think that's Manly?! Check in at the hostel around the corner was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful. I certainly have no complaints.

infested Room

Posted Dec 31, 2017 on Wotif
The stairs are too high for elderly people and not mentioned in the ad. The Room need Pest Control.

Thank you for your feedback, we do regularly exterminate our rooms, I'm sorry to hear your room had a problem. It does state on our website that all our accommodation is on the first floor, but I do understand that there are a lot of stairs.

Good location

Posted Dec 17, 2017 on Wotif
A bit dated, leaky taps, iron imprint on Carpet, basic. Probably better described as backpacker but expensive. Close to beach and shops though.
