We´ll never forget our warm welcome and most enjoyable stay in Cecil Sreet B&B. At once we felt at home and we would have loved to stay much longer if we would have known what a wonderful host Linda is. Having spent my first 6 birthdays in Manly I returned there for my 60th. We dearly recommend Linda´s B&B Cornelia... More

We had a lovely stay here, it felt very welcoming from the moment we arrived and Linda was the perfect host. Breakfast was delicious, rooms and bathroom super clean. It was nice to have the little personal touches to relax at the end of our holiday, such as flowers in our room, chocolates and warm conversation.

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!
