The best stay in manly. There is nothing more that you could wish for. The beach views were to die for and the rooms were very clean. All the staff were very polite and helpful. Highly Recommended!!!!

Sebel Manly is situated right on the beach, a perfect location for exploring Manly. The rooms are a good size, with balconies and many have sea views. The hotel has a 'business' hotel feel about it, so don't expect a boutique atmosphere. Avoid staying in the south tower, as this is a different building and the walk around the back of the hotel around the bins and workers entrances is not very nice...the rooms here are fine though. The staff are very helpful, and there is a computer in the lobyouth at guescan use. The hotel has two small swimming pools, but it's main attraction is its bar/restaurant, Manly Wine. Great food, a creative cocktail list and brilliant service in this quirky bar which looks like a tropical wonderland and declares that sandy feet are welcome.

Located at the quieter south end of Manly Beach the hotel has rooms that face the beach and others in a separate wing which do not. We stayed in the latter which were much cheaper and the room was lovely. But be aware, you will not feel like you are near the beach when you are in these rooms. Breakfast at the hotel is terrific!

I booked this hotel because it advertises itself as a 'stylish, luxury boutique hotel'. Unfortunately it is none of these things and I felt that 2,000 AUD for 5 nights (albeit in high season) was totally extortionate. First the good points: just over the road from Manly Beach and at the quiet end of the parade; reception staff polite and helpful. Less good: despite being advertised as a 'stylish, luxury boutique hotel', the accommodation was of an exceptionally basic standard. Cheap furniture showing signs of wear and tear, scuffed paintwork and a tired looking bathroom. There was no hotel bar or public lounge area, just a small foyer. No wifi in rooms, only in foyer (at a charge of 10 AUD per hour!). Tiny swimming pool on 1st floor which we didn't bother with as it looked so uninviting. The restaurant (Manly Wine) is not owned or run by the hotel, although it is based on the ground floor of the hotel building. Quite good food, which you can charge to your room card and room service possible for a 3 AUD cover charge. However the restaurant is casual dining 'wet bums welcome' with erratic service - so not the standard you'd associate with a 'boutique' hotel. This hotel is definitely NOT a luxury experience and does not justify 400 AUD per night for a superior studio. In the UK it would struggle to obtain a three-star rating. Therefore my comments reflect the discrepancy between the price/ description and what we actually experienced

Great location. Rooms ok, looking a little tired. Staff friendly but very average - they don't seem to go that extra mile. They do what they have to & nothing else which is a shame as this hotel has the potential to be fantastic!
