This place is fantastic. We booked with UBib4 rooms and got a cheaper rate than any other site, which was great considering it was the long weekend. Our lovely room overlooked the harbour with a great breakfast included. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable , and they were all very up to date with the history of Q Station. We hope to go back soon and take our friends to this special place.

My family - 2 adults, 2 young kids - booked in for 4 nights in March. We were visiting Sydney from the Bahamas and we weren't too sure if the Q station would be in a good location. It was absolutely fantastic. The hotel is on the hill above Manly - 5 minutes drive. It is not possible to walk to Manly - or it isn't if you have young kids - but it is fine if you have a car. This hotel is in a beautiful location, the rooms are great and the service is unbeatable. Every single hotel staff member made us feel great. We recommended the hotel to everyone we spoke to in Sydney. We booked in for another 4 nights as it was just so great. The private beach is beautiful too. I am trying to book a hotel in Chicago and I wish that there was something like Q station there too....

For a brilliant Sydney experience, there is nothing like Q station. The location is incredible, with views through the harbour - if you are lucky enough to stay in one of the rooms with a view. There is even a lovely private harbour beach. You feel like you are a million miles away from Sydney, surrounded by bush and wildlife. The old quarantine buildings have character and have been nicely decorated.

The only downside is that you need a car, otherwise you are stuck relying on the infrequent local bus service or calling taxis - it is a long walk to Manly

Great rooms, overall attentive staff and good service. We stayed for 2 nights, booked via lastminute.com and received a very good rate 2 days before staying. We stayed for a wedding in nearby Manly.

The location on Sydney's North head is incredible, and the refurb of the old quarantine station buildings sensitive to original style. With the large space and bush, and no cars allowed to drive within grounds, it felt like a country getaway, right in the middle of Sydney with harbour views all around.

A few negatives - mainly the restaurant was disappointing - we were rather neglected at dinner, food average for the price. The tinny background music needs addressing - ruins the ambience utterly.

(I'd love it if the TV were turned off in the breakfast room too! Really unnecessary with the bush and views around!)
