1 minute walk to Manly beach - great. Small but clean rooms; no TV or toilet in room; helpful receptionist. No remote for communal TV; no batteries in FoxTel remote, so TV watching was challenging. Free tea and instant coffee.

I know it was a Saturday night in Feb and the venue is located close to Manly Beach. We were not expecting luxury or an ensuite. But for $160 we expected a bit more than a dingy room with nothing except bed. No chair, no TV, no mirror, no screen on the window..and of course no parking facility. At least... More

My husband needed a room for 6 nights and wanted to be close to the beach. He was attending his nephew's wedding this past January - high season in Australia and finding an affordable place to stay was not ease as many hotels had been booked. We stumbled on the Guest House and he had reservations about shared bathrooms and... More

I purchased a single room for 2 nights and during my stay, everything surpassed my expectations. The entire place is spottlessly clean, the kitchen is well equipped, bathrooms and toilets are immaculate - and on every floor - and my room was very comfortable. On top of this, the staff are warm as well as helpful regarding any issues I... More

my experience of Manly Guesthouse didn't start well. 6 weeks before staying there I made my booking for 5 days. The following day my friend offered for me to stay with him. I contacted Manly Guesthouse and they refused to cancel the booking so, in effect, I was forced to stay there. The place itself is functional but ugly -... More

Advertisement didn't show the room was a shoe box. For $160 you'd expect a little more than to walk into a wall with a bed on it when you open the door, but I guess that might be real estate in manly, the rich suburb. Would not stay again.

We are sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations. As you already know, Manly is an expensive area, for us too, and it is our summer season so prices are peak. All photo's are true, taken with an iphone, and we do state that the trio room is a small room. It may seem expensive but when you... More

Location is fantastic, kitchen is really nice and well equipped and lounge area is cosy. They also have a small sunny garden area. The double room in the pics looks like it has a table but not the one I got though. A bad poibt i that they're ask for a deposit so they keep your card details. They dont... More

Thank you for leaving a review. Firstly, you checked in late after the office had closed, with the night supervisor, not the owner as I don't live onsite. I think there may have been a language problem as he is normally very nice. The room you had booked is a budget double, the room with table and chairs is the... More

Had a triple room to myself for 3 nights,but very small,more suited to a single or a twin,too small to be a triple.But lets not forget it`s a guest house,in one of the worlds most expensive cities for accomodation,so for the price and location (3 mins walk to the beach) it`s a bargain. Downstairs there is a tv room with... More

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your review. The trio rooms are small, however, many people really just want somewhere to sleep and store their gear, so the trio is perfect for them considering the price is for 3 people. They then use our spacious kitchen and lounge area or courtyard for relaxing or watching tv. We... More

We recently had to fly down to Sydney for a function near Manly. We literally only wanted somewhere to sleep. Manly Guest House was perfect. Very affordable, spotlessly clean, and the room was a great size. Top floor at the end of the showers. The room had a small fridge, sink and kettle. The shower was large, heaps of room... More

We love Manly Guesthouse! Prior to staying in Manly Guesthouse we had stayed in several other places in the area and we felt let down by all of them. They were dirty and uncared for and we felt resentful parting with our money but after going for a walk along the beach my partner and I came across the Manly... More
