Very friendly reception & housekeeping staff. Atmosphere felt warm & homely. Very clean rooms with everything that we needed provided. Comfortable beds. Amazing location with water views from some of the rooms.

Friendly and helpful staff - option to borrow beach towels a great bonus! Apartment was very clean and beds comfortable however could benefit from a refurb as furnishings are a little jaded. Laundry facilities useful however we found the bathroom setting unusual. Some capital investment could turn this into a first class destination as the staff and location are fantastic!

Great location - good facilities. An Ideal spot to explore Manly and close to ferry. Good facilities - free papers - good kitchen facilities - Bed very comfortable but only problem (and it is significant) sofa bed is not comfortable at all.

The Quest Manly has everything we needed. Location, ferry access, beach, complimentary wifi, good eateries, lovely staff... we were there for business and leisure and it met all our requirements. It is in a stunning location right on the beach there in Manly with waterfront views.

We stayed at the Quest serviced apartments for two nights in April. Our room was relatively basic but had everything we needed - a kitchen, washing machine and dryer and a TV, we also had a balcony but unfortunately it looked out over the road rather than the harbour. The location was good - just over the road to the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. We are undertaking a comprehensive refurbishment of all rooms later this year which will have stunning results. Also, our studios are our most basic room type, hence the cheaper price to our other rooms. Our one bedroom apartments are a step up in both décor and views, but are...

Quest Manly is truly a gem. Situated just across from the famous Manly Wharf, it is accessible and convenient to almost anywhere. However, what makes Quest truly stand out are the people. From front desk to maintenance and housekeeping to management, everyone is a team and sincerely strives to make your stay extraordinary. Extras like wifi, beach towels, secure parking,...

Hi Charlie, Thanks for your feedback. I have read your guest notes and I am confident that we really tried to make your stay as enjoyable as it could have been (as you note). Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we can't win them all. Manly is a busy place, so at peak times there is certainly some atmosphere, though usually...

Friendly staff and a lovely location. Great for a short break. Just by the ferry. We go there regularly as a family. Good solid friendly place - everything you need. But if you are used to luxury try the ocean front 5 star hotels. We love the Quest but don't book when we want to ! lol

Staying in Manly

Neighbourhood Profile
Manly
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.
