What a wonderful couple of days we've just had at the Cecil Street B&B, a charming heritage home tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in the hills above Manly. It's a great place to base yourself for a northern beaches adventure and within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of the Manly CBD and ferry terminal. Our host, Linda,... More

We have stayed here for 5 nights as part of a family holiday with our two boys aged 7 and 10. Our host Linda picked us up from the ferry terminal in Manly, given the b&b is at the top of a steep hill that was a great help. She made us very welcome including showing us the location of... More

We were in Manly Beach for a conference and stayed here instead of at the conference hotel. The owner, Linda, was very helpful and actually drove us, with our luggage to the place we stayed after leaving here. She had limited availability (popular place), so we moved after only 3 nights with her. The breakfast she provided included fresh fruit... More

We recently stayed at the Cecil Street B & B. We frequently travel to Sydney but had never been to Manly. We stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect.

We stayed there just before the last Christmas season. It was the first time for us stay in Manly and we did chose the right place! We had a very nice talk with Linda and she was so kind and nice especially for my boy. We loved the lovely breakfast, too! Thank you so much! 小高い丘の上にあるとても静かな住宅街の一角にある家庭的な雰囲気のBBです。ビーチにも歩いて10分程。2部屋+リビングがゲスト用で、朝食のフルーツ、ヨーグルト、パンなどもすてき。ホストは女性、子供との滞在でしたが中庭で気軽にお話したりと楽しく過ごせました。お部屋も清潔。ビーチ近くの人混みから離れていて夜は静かで窓からポッサムの鳴き声が聞こえてきました。とてもおすすめです!

We stayed here for one night in this B&B in 23 Jan 2014. Linda is a great host, very friendly and helpful with our airport transport shuttle booking. Linda fetches us from the Manly Ferry Terminal to here B&B. This B&B is near Manly beach. Walking downhill to the beach is an enjoyable walk. However, walking uphill is quite tiring.... More

My mum and her partner were visiting from the UK and wanted to see Sydney. Rather than booking a hotel in the CBD, or an expensive stay at Circular Quay, I thought Manly would be a perfect location. Close to great beaches, the wharf and the ferry to Circular Quay, Cecil St B&B seemed to tick all the boxes. The... More

Really lovely B & B, clean & tidy and very cosy, it's a short walk into the centre of Manly and the Wharf. Linda is an excellent host, the breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit and warm croissants, would highly recommend.
