We booked this motel and paid for it in advance through lastminute.com. If we had not already done this, we would have continued on to look for better accommodation. Julie the owner was very pleasant and friendly but admitted that the room which we had thought was a Deluxe Queen size room, was on the small side and offered us...

My partner and I booked the manning as it was the closest accommodation to the shopping precinct and incredibly well priced. We were thrilled with being able to park our car directly outside our room, and were warmly greeted by Julie and the dogs. Julie was SO helpful, gave us directions and recommendations for restaurants/cafes, provided us with crockery and...

We picked this hotel as it is right next door to Biota Dining. We received a very warm welcome and quickly shown where our room was located. First impressions was that it was a large, well appointed room but it quickly went downhill from there. The couch was lumpy and very uncomfortable, cobwebs behind the bathroom door, no where to...

My only regret here was that it was only a one night stay. We fell in love with the town of Bowral.I even looked at a few real estate adverts. The Manning Motel was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was nicely appointed and the free wi-fi was greatly appreciated; we had rarely found...

My husband and I were one couple of a group of six couples who travelled to Bowral for the June Long Weekend. The staff were helpful and not a thing was too much trouble. Suggested places to see, eat and booked the boys into Golf at no extra cost. The rooms were very clean, warm and the beds very comfortable....

I have been staying at the Manning for the last 2 weeks (away on business) and I will stay for an other 2 weeks. It is very clean (recently renovated) with all the gadgets. The staff are very helpful. One of the best places in the Southern Highlands when it comes to value for money.
