4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Return visit to this site for us and three years on we were in exactly the same apartment! Just as clean and well maintained as our first visit. Location is very convenient and the outlook from the harbour-side apartment is wonderful. We self catered but there are numerous great eateries nearby.

Will recommend, very good. Not near city centre but easy access through ferry. Nice beach. It's a hotel apartment. Use ferry, because traffic is terrible in Sydney. Easy and enjoyable access to city centre/opera house/ darling harbour through ferry

We continue to return to this hotel if only for its location. On this occasion I noticed an aging especially in the kitchen area, but conversely Quest do provide generous provisions, have a substantial refridgerator and plenty of cutlery and plates. Still the one negative on this property, and one the owners have had many years to address. How about... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for taking the time to review us again- I recall from your previous review that you are a relatively tough marker and you don’t give out 4 Stars lightly, so thank you very much for your score and your honesty. As you say our location is fantastic, central to all that Manly has to offer. With this... More

Clean and comfortable, stayed in a studio which is fully equipped. Beds very comfortable. The position is excellent but being in the opposite the ferry terminal and the Corso it can be noisy. With closed door and air con on its fine. I defiantly recommend these apartments

Outstanding location and as a female travelling solo I found the staff very helpful and most friendly. The cleaning staff are to be commended also. My only glitch was problems with the wifi dropping out but was not a major issue at all and did not detract from my overall experience of this establishment. I will definitely be staying again...

Very good serviced apartments, basic but have everything you need. Staff is charming and very helpful, location is great and we had a gorgeous view of the harbour. Would recommend anyone to stay there, especially if you need to commute to the CBD.

Dear Guest, Thanks very much for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Your suggestion that Manly is a great option for people working in the CBD is a very good one for visitors. We are just 17 minutes away from Circular Quay, the heart of the CBD, by fast ferry. So you can work... More

My husband and I have not been to Manly for 5 years and decided to stay at the Quest. On arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile and an upgrade without asking. The young man on front desk was informative and very friendly. One thing I would have liked was a name tag so I could have mentioned his... More

Hi Terri, There aren't many better one word summaries to a stay than fantastic- thank you very much for passing on your kind comments. Well done on scoring an upgrade into a one bedroom harbour view. Our studios are great, but you can't beat a view like that- particularly if it is free. I am glad you enjoyed yourself and... More

We really loved our stay at Quest Manly. We have a 3 month old baby and the 3 of us were comfortable for the 5 days. The staff were highly professional. The room was very clean and had everything that we needed. We recommend Quest to anyone considering somewhere to stay in Manly.

Hi Mikey, Many thanks for your glowing review. I am really happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us. All of our rooms are very spacious when compared to similar products in the marketplace and having the kitchen is priceless when you have the kids in tow. But, no matter how big the room is, if your... More

We first stayed in Quest Manly in March 2012 taking the two-bedroom apartment and we loved it so much there really was no suggestion it could be improved upon during this year’s visit.
