Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I have been watching this place since we met and always said we need to stay there. This year we finally did. The place is absolutely stunning but it's NOT a bnb! It's accommodation only! I don't know whythey still call themselves a bnb when theyre clearly not. A bit disappointing

This bed and breakfast is amazing. It's located right next to the beach and has a lovely charm that stands out from many other hotels. The architecture and design is certainly very unique in Perth. The breakfast was delicious and was a lot better than I was expecting. It's run by a couple who were lovely and welcomed us wholeheartedly. I'd definitely come back here.

Manuel Towers is amazing. It is a live museum for me. The design, craftsmanship and sustainable style are presented with every detail in every corner. The recycled timber, rock and metals found their best places in the towers. The owners of the museum are very good story tellers. I could visualize the original building in 1985 and the nine-year revamping project of the rock castle. Manuel, the single man, crafted this castle by his hands, feet and shoulder. Ali, the wonder woman, gave full support to his man to realize his dream. My wife, Jasmine, and I stayed in the museum for two nights in the weekend. We had lovely chats with the other guests and Ali & Manuel in the breakfast. We heard some romantic stories from the old and humors couples who have just celebrated their 50th anniversary. The last not the least, the breakfast is fantastic with the food and charming beach scenery in the early morning. I have left my heart to the towers and the amazing people in it. Local travelers, Jasmine & Larry

A stunning piece of paradise in Shoalwater very clean and well maintained. Thank you very much to the lovely owners Ali, Manuel and not to forget Kayla (labrador). As you enter, you are visually mesmerised and transformed to the Mediterranean. We wanted the seaview room upstairs but unfortunately we were told upfront when we made the booking that the aircon/heating was broken and they were waiting for it to be fixed. Just glad we stayed dowstairs where you have your own courtyard and you can cross the road to beach and go for scenic long walk. Our stay made it extra special when we were visited by Kayla. Everywhere you look around Manuel Towers visually tells a story, intricate pieces of beautiful, rustic quirkiness. Breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious! Compliments to Ali! Such a perfect getaway. We will be returning. Highly recommend.

Clean accomodation,very clean and comfortably and Fabulous location but we booked 8 weeks ago not even knowing It was a long weekend .We can come at any time ,we just wanted the view My partner called and on speaker phone the lady said we had our pick of rooms ,as we only live a few kms from here the only reason we picked this spot was to have the beach and seafront views . He voiced this at least 3 times during the call and offered to pay straight away ,but no she’s assured us we had the room closest to the beach. When we checked in,we were taken take the room furthest at the back ,only sea views if we stood up and told the heating and cooling was broken so she had to move us . Things happen and although very disappointed we were running late for an event so off we went ,only to see the next morning someone else was in the sea view room,we could see them sitting on there balcony from our,amongst roof tops . When my husband went downstairs to question this to the gentleman owner ,he had no idea what he was talking about ans his wife ran out from the back and said no I booked your room on the phone and you were always in this one . Mistakes happen we understand ,but would not return or recommend as owners are false and not genuine ,basically calling us liars for mentioning anything about air conditioning,why would we even have the conversation about it ?? Very disappointed Also the next day overheard her do exactly the same thing to another couple ,booked an upstairs Seaview and were given downstairs no view

These people thought they were booking our private home at the front of the building. Unfortunately they refused to believe this and called us liars also sending this dreadful review. Please look at all the other great reviews to see what other customers think of us.

This place is awesome! My wife and I spent the night at Manuel Towers and we can't rate it highly enough. Ali and Manuel, the proprietors, are the nicest, kindest people you will ever meet. Manuel has virtually single-handedly built this incredible Mediterranean style seaside rustic villa right on magnificent Shoalwater Bay. Everything here is top-notch and the breakfasts are unbelievably good. Do yourself a favour and see for yourself. You will not regret it.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Pelican room - lovely balcony. A breath of fresh air, to be in such a unique place with so much character. Ali and Manuel were so welcoming, and the breakfast was amazing! Perfect location, right by Shoalwater reserve - nicest part of beach and coast, very close to Penguin Island.

Turned up saturday just after 2pm check in. All is quiet. Great local across the road from the water with cycle tracks, walking pathes etc with seating, playgrounds etc all in the park. Found Ali and checked in. We were escorted to our upstairs room and had a brief description of the place. All hand built by manuel, alis partner.he was installing a ceiling beam as we returned from our first walk. Its what he does apparantly. Room was great. The bed turned out to be that good we slept through breakfast. Cant fault this place. Cheers

Stepping into the courtyard of Manuel Towers is like stepping into a European escape. You’ll be greeted by your charming hosts Ali and Manuel and the sound of laughter, the waft of fresh baked cookies and the promise of a memorable holiday.Every corner of this eclectic abode brings a new pleasure to the eye with its rustic decor.The seabreeze drifts in through the wrought iron gates as you gaze across through one of the many windows. Take a step across the road and enjoy everything the beachside has to offer with shell lined shores and a diverse natural habitat.The rooms are charming with their quaint rustic appeal. A few nights here is enough to feel you have had a wonderful holiday getaway, can’t wait for my next visit.
