Place nice and clean and very well located. Would not recomend if you have a vehicle above 2. 1. You can't fit in carpark and even though they give you a pass to park elsewhere in the streets the parking is premium in the area so you drive around forever waiting to jump into a site where you are allowed...

We rented 3 bed room apartment. The view of the beach from balcony was spectacular however the furnishings in the apartment were a little tired. The oven door was loose and did not seal properly. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The apartments also have free parking a real bonus

We stayed in an apartment at the Manly Paradise Motel/Apartments. There were 4 adults: the apartment was spaciously laid out on 3 levels (laundry on one level, kitchen/dining/living on another, and 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on a third). There was no sound at all from neighboring apartments, view was outstanding (we could watch surfers on the beach), location is...

I found the Paradise Motel and Apartments in Manly, Sydney to be over-priced in respect of the room (apartment) comfort, motel-amenities and general level of service offered. The split level two-bedroomed apartment which I rented had an excellent and inspirational sea-view and the kitchen was large and well-appointed (also with a sea-view). The balcony (deck) is just large enough to...

We have been here twice now and find it to be well located and CLEAN, with all the facilities we need. It's across the road from the beach, and a 5-10 minute walk to the ferry complex. Lots of restaurants nearby as well as shopping and a supermarket on the way to/from the ferry. Will never drive to Sydney again...train...

Stayed in the apartments and the views from the balcony were outstanding. Close proximity to the beach was great and near the ferry and Corso with the shops, restaurants and people watching. The rooms were good sized but the place was tired. Older carpet, furniture and functional but dated, well used and small kitchen.

Booked at short notine having been let down by another hotel. very clean, bright room overlooking Manly beach. Perfect location right in the centre of town. Free, safe, undercover parking. AC very welcome in middle of a NSW heatwave. Could only stay one night becaue they were full but would have stayed longer. Very helpful and attentive staff.

We were visiting Manly for a few days, and we splurged on a pricy beachfront property. The view of the beach is wonderful from the living room of our two bedroom apartment. It's more than we really need, but now that the weather has turned rainy it's nice to have some space. Everything seems expensive here in Manly, so I...

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
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.
