We had a great 3 night stay at Quest Manly. The apts are well located by the Manly ferry wharf and close to good coffee, cafes, restaurants and bars. Manly has developed a real village character in the years since I lived on the Nth Shore - and Quest are a part of that relaxed vibe. Even during silly season... More

Dear Guest, Thanks very much for your review.I love your title- when you are this close to the water, comfortable and airey is definitely an apt description. Our studios are perfect for those that want to save a few extra dollars to spend in the vast array of venues Manly offers, however I agree that the wonderful views from our... More

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days break to Sydney and we had a wonderful stay. The free parking was greatly appreciated and the amenities were first class. With the convenience of a Supermarket around the corner, we could not fault this accommodation.

This was a very pleasant place to stay. Clean and well serviced. Close to shops, restaurants and beach. Right across the road from the ferry terminal as well. We have stayed at other Quest Apartments and are always happy with the service.

Hi Margaret, Thanks very much for your very kind review. Quest as a brand has made giant leaps in ensuring that there is good standardisation across our vast property portfolio. That said, there is always room for improvement and we are all working hard to continually over deliver on all of our guests expectations. There are a range of exciting... More

We stayed here whilst visiting our daughter who lives in nearby Balgowlah. The apartment was modern, clean, and well maintained. Although it overlooked the main street, the sliding doors kept 99% of the noise out, so peaceful nights in the comfy bed. Front office staff were very helpful, and the free parking underground came in very useful when our daughter... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for your review. It is always nice to hear that our guests have enjoyed themselves. I agree with you, that our rooms, despite being extremely keen and functional are lacking a finishing piece of personality in keeping with the rest of our property. We have a few projects earmarked for the new year that will address... More

The apartment is very clean & comfortable. Location is superb, near to amenities & wharf. The reception is 24 hrs & service is excellent. I'll definitely stay at Quest again if I go back to Manly. Thank you for making the stay so wonderful.

Simplicity with quality to my satisfaction, Very clean, above average, great location, great room size, great room service. You didn't need the extras because every thing else was at your door step, which gave me choice.

Good standing, good quality, really enjoyable, too bad our stay was too short to enjoy erveything, but it is definitively a really good place to be in Manly. The place is really close to the ferry and to the beach, every falicity can be find within 1km !

Reception was extremely courteous. It was great ghe room was ready when we arrived so early after disembarking from our cruise ie 0830. Room was a good size but the layout seemed strange. Laundry facilities were a bonus. Only negative was that our room faced the main road and traffic noise was quite loud from early morning until late at... More

We have been going to Sydney now for 40 years plus and have stayed in Sooo many places but we have to admit for price, quality and location it is our first choice.
