Situated opposite Manly Beach and the surf lifesaving club, this is a perfect location for a holiday or a quick getaway. Entrance to the hotel is via a staircase, or for those in a wheelchair or with mobility issues there is an elevator along side the stairs. We were met by friendly, courteous and helpful staff and check in was...

My son and I stayed here whilst meeting family. The hotel went out of their way to ensure we were on the same floor as my parents which made the stay more enjoyable and convenient. The front reception has beach towels and beach toys for the kids which was great. The pool was freezing and we could only use the...

We are a young couple with a 10 week old daughter. We stayed at The Sebel for a four day weekend visit to Manly. First and foremost, the staff were fantastic.

we stayed in 3 different locations during our trip to Sydney and this was the most expensive. You go into a hotel type lobby but that's where the impression of a hotel ends. it consists of two separate serviced apartment blocks.

We have never stayed at the Sebel hotel Manly before and wasn't quite sure what to expect. We were attending a mates wedding function at South Curl Curl and there wasn't a great deal of cheaper accommodation available, so we splurged out & stayed at the Sebel.

This hotel is in a great location, right on the beach at Manly. You literally walk across the road and you're on the beach. Rooms are large and clean. Shower was great. Excellent pressure.

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
