4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

If you are looking for somewhere to unwind, with good food and good service all round, this is the place. Hard to believe it is so close to manly, and of course the ferry to the city.
Its location in the national park means that your car stays in the visitor car park, but it wasn't an issue, shuttles were frequent. Menu at the Boiler house restaurant was very nice, but if y,ou are having a longer stay, its a short trip to Manly. Great views, great location.

I stayed in this hotel and you can hardly believe you are in Sydney how removed and quiet this hotel is. It was peculiar that you could not drive your car to your room but you had to leave it at the visitor car park. Their shuttle operates promptly so it is really well organized. The room was small but clean and bathroom was well sized.

We got our keys but our lock was loose so it was hard to open the door once locked and reception was completely indifferent to our complaint (the hotel was virtually empty). Also, our room did not have air con and I have not seen any units on any other rooms - I would not stay there in summer anymore but would come back in any other season.

We had the room facing the water so that was really nice as we could see Sydney skyline from our doorstep. There is guest lounge which opens out to a beautiful balcony facing the forest and water. Also, there is a self serve coffee machine which makes really good mocha and other beverages. Daily newspaper is available and the hotel runs tours of the place as this used to be a quarantine station.

I will stay here again once the weather cools down.

Thanks Accor. Consistently great service everyone. Hilton take note.
Q station is a lovely tranquil place in manly. It's a short drive from the heart of manly, with access to the rooms via shuttle. The boiler room has excellent meals but its also easy to drive into manly for something more lively. One tip- these are heritage rooms and while they have been modernised, they're quite small. Choose the rooms with a water view. The delux rooms with no view are small, dark and average. I was delighted to be upgraded to a water view room.
