    The room was tired but we deemed it adequate for the price. Air conditioning worked and was essential. What we didn't enjoy was the huge number of mosquitos in the room, although we discovered a can of flyspray under the sink. We made it clear...More

    A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
    you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
    here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
    day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
    a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
    Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
    plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
    cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
