Manly has very little accommodation in the middle price range - between the 4/5 star hotels and the backpackers. This Paradise fills this gap and is right on the beach. We had a large beach view motel room which was not directly opposite the beach (it seems that's only the apartments) but we did have a nice view of the... More

I did quite a bit of research, as usual, before booking this property in Manly. The research paid off - it's fabulous! All the other beach front accommodation was a lot more $$$. I just needed a room for two for the June long weekend. Not only was our room directly opposite the beach, with a large window with expansive... More

We had a wonderful stay in this prime location hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms clean and 'just right' for the money. The views down the side of the building to the beach are stunning, especially the morning sunrises. The pool is lovely. Overall, we had a great stay and we will be back!

we were about to book this hotel, who seems to have many good points in spite of all commentaries, but it doesn't include Wifi, and no fare available for multi nights : no way. We had to choose another hotel, and it's too bad !

Our room was clean and comfortable, but a little on the small side. The sink/handbasin in the bedroom was slightly inconvenient, but not a big problem, and would not have fitted in the bathroom anyway. The shower had excellent water pressure. However, the location was fantastic, with a wonderful view of the beach and a magnificent sunrise to greet us... More

Not only beach front, but easily accessible from the city where I had to come for work. Much prefer to stay here and travel over on the ferry than stay in some bland box in the city. Yes, this hotel is older and a bit tired, but you absolutely cannot beat it's location and it was clean and comfortable which... More

This is a tired hotel with revolting smelling basement car park. The rooms are ok but tired the bathroom basin is in the main room away from the shower and toilet. They turn off the lift at 730pm because they are having problems with it. The only positive us the location. Ian Tamworth

Hello Ian, In regards to the basement carpark, we do not own the carpark, rather we lease parking spots for our guests. We have brought your concern to the owner and efforts are being made to rectify the situation. On a positive note, we are very fortunate to be on the beachfront in Manly. Although we are an older property,... More

A Colleague and I stayed at the Manly Paradise Hotel on a business trip, for a couple of days and it was excellent. While it an older property without on premise services (more like a serviced apartment) apart from a pool on the roof, the management was very friendly and flexible. Despite a twenty four hour cancellation policy for online... More

Arrived back home this morning after 2 nights at the Paradise. Wished we stayed longer. Before we booked we read the reviews and were a little apprehensive about the accommodation. No problem. We enjoyed every minute there. Staff were friendly. Couldn't fault the room (not an apartment) we had. Hot water was hot and didn't have to wait like some... More

There's plenty to see and do in this picturesque holiday destination. Perfect for the corporate traveller or for those who just want to relax. We are also just a couple of steps from the vibrant centre of Manly with shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars and night life.

You might encounter a bandicoot, a fairy penguin or see whales and dolphins. We are also located close to Manly Wharf where you can catch the ferry service to Sydney CBD, right past the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, where you can connect to trains, buses or other ferries at Circular Quay to continue exploring Sydney.
