I booked this accommodation online and then read the reviews, so I was a bit anxious about how it would be. So we asked to see the room first. It was a family room, good size, no cooking facilities but did have a spa. There was no sea view, just a small window onto a walkway. We took it for...

We booked a room here online whilst travelling some time ago... When we arrived, it was horrendous. Dirty, untidy, unfriendly and unhelpful. The bedding was stained and when I we t to change the sheets with the 'clean' ones the manager threw at me, the mattress was covered in stains and blood! The floors, bathroom, curtains... Everything... Was dirty. It...

My husband and I have just returned from our "trip of a lifetime" to Australia. We stayed in Manly only one night (thank goodness) at the Oceanside Apartments - that was enough! The room was very dated & dirty - the kind of place you wipe your feet on the way out!! Unfortunately we had no other options when we...

KNOCK-HOUSE!!! This was very “back-packer” style and not a hotel in any way shape or form. The walls where thin and dirty, dingy looking closets, noisy bed-rest, damaged heater, rubbish furniture, a FM/AM tuner that looked more like a radio signal transmitter from a speedboat out of a 1980s TV series, WET ROOM instead of a bathroom and the list...

My fault entirely I didn't read the reviews. Unbelievable that places like this continue in business. It needs to be closed down, demolished and its owners need to get into another business. An insult to Manly. Careful, also on Trip Advisor as Oceanside Apartments. It is 100 meters from the sea though!

I booked the 'spa suite' over the internet and unfortunately did not read the reviews on trip advisor. This is by far the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. The room smelt old and musty. The furniture dates back to around 1950-1960 and there has no attention or renovation since then. I was originally given the room underneath the...

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
