“Clean and Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Stayed 1 night in August, $119 walk in rate. The lady on reception was exceptional and the smell of the fresh flowers beautiful. The room was clean and the bed so needed and comfortable, I slept for 10 hours! The only small problem is the shower has a curtain, not a glass enclosure and one tends to get a bit of water on the floor, no big deal though.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Staying one night only we found the Manning Clean aand the owner friendly and helpful. Location is great and we were able to get a discount at the counter by quoting online prices.
Bathroom was a little tired but very clean. very small Tv and a toaster provided.
The bed however was far to hard so we will not be returning. We ate at the "Biota" next door and this was a dissapointment particularly given the cost.

Receptionist could not have been more helpful, she had turned the heater on in our room ready for our arrival. Room was very clean & comfortable. Very well priced compared to other establishments in the area.Will certainly return.

Lovely reception from the owner/manager on arrival. Showed me to my room and turned the heaters on. This lovely lady also provided me with a basket of crockery and cutlery and included a complimentary bottle of wine. My inital booking was for a deluxe room however, this was at the front of the hotel with a car parking space directly outside the window. It was also a little small so I upgraded to a bigger room at the back of the hotel. This room was large and in a quiet area - I highly recommend paying the extra few dollars for these rooms if they are available and I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone not wanting a five star establishment - it is definitley value for money. Home delvered take-away is also available.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

My husband and I were one couple of a group of six couples who travelled to Bowral for the June Long Weekend. The staff were helpful and not a thing was too much trouble. Suggested places to see, eat and booked the boys into Golf at no extra cost.

The rooms were very clean, warm and the beds very comfortable.

Location central to Bowral, just walking distance.

Highly reccommend and will definetly return

Room Tip: Rooms at the back quieter

I have been staying at the Manning for the last 2 weeks (away on business) and I will stay for an other 2 weeks. It is very clean (recently renovated) with all the gadgets. The staff are very helpful. One of the best places in the Southern Highlands when it comes to value for money.

I have stayed overnight with almost every hotel, motel and serviced apartment business in Bowral and the surrounding area and i have found that for the money paid The Manning stands out. The Manning is well situated very close to central Bowral which makes my short walks to one of many wonderful restaurants all the better though it is difficult to go past the one hatted restaurant right next to The Manning's rooms. The rooms are clean, warm and welcoming with good size comfy beds. The thick walls keep the heat in and the noise out. The bath towels are luxuriously long and soft and the air/con is quiet and reliable which are two very important factors when you stay in the southern highlands during winter as it gets quite cold.
I have found that all throughout the southern highlands good service runs rampant and at The Manning this is too true. The lovely staff made sure i was warmly greeted and helped out with dinner suggestions and whatever i needed to make my stays memorable ones. I will continue to be a very happy repeat customer at The Manning and look forward to my next stay.
