We stayed for 2 long weekends, a month apart in a standard studio apartment, the first time upgraded to deluxe without us asking. Booked through Manly Beach Holiday and Executive Apartments, a family business located in the plaza nearby, Paul, Tania and Mat being most helpful. Comfortable clean rooms, the deluxe studio huge, with everything necessary for self catering. A... More

hmmm, googling Waterside Holiday Apartments can lead to the website of Manly Waterside Holidays which uses the following intro: Manly Waterside Holiday Apartments offers fully self-contained apartments in Manly... Sounds familiar? We know because this is the route we followed, as naive as it sounds Anyway, this is misleading at best and scamming at worst so make up your own... More

Please stay away from this place, Don't get fooled by the fact that Leonie and John appear to be nice people. They offer rubbish and keep on demanding for your credit card details and will take all the money they think they can get of you. When checking out they will keep your credit card slip and will refuse to... More

The place smelt very badly of stale urine. The kettle was unclean. It also concerned me that i informed them of the issue and they disregarded my concerns. Would never recommend this place to anyone nor would I stay there again. Only thing going for this place was location, security and the layout of the apartment. The free wifi was... More

My family- 2 adults and a teenager stayed for 5 nights in a deluxe studio apartment . Luckily we had a balcony to spread out a bit. We could of done with a big fridge , not the bar fridge though.

APARTMENT : This apartment is located in a secure block with swipe key entry to foyer and lifts. Myself and two teenage daughters stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect. The apartment was clean and modern, with a really comfy queen bed and a good single sofa bed. Squashy with the sofa bed set out but that was at... More

We stayed in a studio apartment (508) and found it to be very comfortable. It had a fully equipped, very clean kitchen with a large fridge and all facilities needed. The bathroom was clean and a good size. Never ran out of hot water. The lounge area was comfortable and adequate however was looking a little tired. It didn't detract... More

Given that yes, we had arrived less than an hour prior to check-in time, we were greeted with unpleasant staff that seemed to find it a nuisance to receive business from a couple that had pre-paid for a 4 night stay during summer. We politely asked if there were any private parking available seeing as we had overlooked this option... More

You can't beat the proximatey of this accomodation, right in the heart of Manly. We stayed in room 219 which was right near the lift, although we didn't seem to hear much from the other guests coming and going. The room was clean and a decent size although the air conditioner was rather useless and I certainly wouldnt want to... More

Rooms were not clean, very old & dated and with no maintenance! Expensive for what you got. And unfortunately was asked to pre-pay before arriving! After 2 nights of no sleep due to dripping air conditioning unit and paper thin walls, asked to be moved or refunded. Rude staff that basically couldn't see what the problem was! Moved to better...
