This is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast. Linda is an excellent host & makes you feel really at home. The rooms are very clean, comfortable & homely. The house is in a very quiet road in Manly. There is a big hill to walk up, which we didn't mind as it helped to work off everything we had consumed during... More

Linda is a great hostess. Private entrance, well decorated and comfortable bedroom. Private bathroom, sitting room and outside patio in the front. Excellent breakfast! A short walk to manly beach with a hill on the return. Free WiFi. We felt very comfortable and would not hesitate to stay here again!

No need to look any further. This is where you want to stay. Linda is like the mum you always wanted - respecting your privacy, yet there when you need her. Great rooms, a loving host, awesome location, an amazing breakfast, and most of all, a no worries host. Linda's bnb is a perfect home base for Sydney. Manly has... More

We (my partner and both our mothers - we all met at Manly coming via Melbourne, Leeds, and Mudgee) recently stayed at Cecil St, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The house is just beautiful and the rooms superb. It is a short walk to Manly Beach and Corso, but not too close - you feel secluded and quiet... More

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
