Great staff, excellent service! The apartments are ultra clean and fully furnished. Located across Manly Wharf with an excellent restaurant below, Criniti's, and walking distance from fantastic beaches and great shopping, the only downfall was that I couldn't stay longer. It was awesome!

For over 17 years I have been staying at the Quest (pref Manly Esplanade). It has always proven to be clean, very comfortable & is perfectly positioned in Manly. Our only disappointment on this trip was they could not host us for the full time. We had to change on our last night to the Novotel. It was a nice...

Perfect location overlooking Manly wharf. Spacious room with much desired kitchen. Great that you can walk up stairs to your room - many hotels you only have an option of a lift. Relatively hard bed, but ok. Noisy AC unit, but got used to it.

We stayed in the Quest for 4 nights. It was clean tidy and very comfortable. The decor was plain but modern and it had everything we needed. We had a room right on the crossroads so it wasn't the quietest but it was very convenient.

Mark_QuestManly, Guest Relations Manager at Quest Manly, responded to this review

Thanks for your review Lizzy. The downside of such a convenient location is a little bit of road noise. Fortunately our double glazed windows keep out most of the noise and I'm glad it didn't dampen your experience of the wonderful Manly. We look forward to seeing you again.

Lovely location and being self contained was a bonus. Staff very friendly. Would stay again. Kayla on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Even parking was easy. Close to restaurants and shops as well as the ferry. Rooms were clean and the bed was so comfy.

The Quest Manly is so well located, just across the road from the ferry, close to the Manly Corso, Coles supermarket, the beach and lots of restaurants and bars. The property is spotlessly clean, the bed was so comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely choose to stay at the Quest Manly again .

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.
