I have stayed twice on 2 separate occasions for work and both times have been perfect. The location is fantastic with a few minutes walk to the Manly wharf to catch the ferry. The rooms are clean (I am very fussy when it comes to cleanliness), tidy, and stylishly decorated. Sally makes a fabulous host, very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend to all my friends. Thanks Sally for a great stay :)

Room Tip: The Loft is the best value, with great views, spacious, light and bright.

Many thanks Jojo,
You got to stay in both rooms, so it's nice to know you liked them both.
You know where we are should you need to stay again!
Hope the surfing is pumping for you.

Even the hardcore pedants would struggle to give this gem of a Bed & breakfast anything but a glowing review and a five star rating!

Situated just a short walk from the ferry, beaches, restaurants, bars, buses, taxi's, supermarket(there is a theme developing here), The Harbour loft is a fantastic place to stay whilst taking in the area. Sally is a wonderful host who makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive to departure. During booking, communication was great and made the whole process so easy and stress free.

Why the harbour loft beats the local hotels is down to the little touches, free wifi, kettle, fridge, balcony to sit and wind down after a long day, quiet area away from lose and disturbance and a host who understands 'customer care' but does so in an unobtrusive way!

Will definitely return should rooms be available. Thank you Sally

Thank you so much for such a glowing review! Sometimes when the room is empty, I'll take a glass of wine and sit on the balcony to unwind, Sitting on top of the trees, and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We hope you will come and stay again with us,
regards Sally

This was an absolutely amazing experience! Sally was warm, hospitable and attentive to every detail. The upstairs loft is intended for two people but Sally accommodated three of us and we still had plenty of space. The room was magnificent and stocked with everything one would need, from a voltage converter to a hair straightener. The Loft is in a great location, away from the noise but just a few minutes walk to the harbor or the beach.
We highly recommend staying here. Make sure to book in advance.

I was looking for a place for my husband and I, and two grown kids to stay when we all met up in Sydney to celebrate my son's 21st. I wanted easy access to the city so we could see a show and go to a restaurant at Darling Harbour. I also wanted somewhere easily accessible to the Northern Beaches so that family and friends could all come together at Newport for the group event. Sally was very flexible - agreeing to put a double mattress on the floor of the very roomy loft for my kids - and not worrying about doing any food for us. We loved the space, the view, the access to the harbour and Manly for other meals and walks. My son wanted to move in permanently. Sally was a delightful host - we felt as if we'd known her for a much longer time than the brief encounter. And we said we would tell others who had reason to be in Sydney that It was perfect and comes highly recommended. Thanks Sally - looking forward to the next excuse to come and stay with you again. x

We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend and rented both rooms. The loft room is really nice and view is fantastic. As others have said, it is spacious and gets lots of light. The downstairs room was perfectly fine. We have a large car so finding a parking spot was not all that easy but using the parking permit you could probably park the car when you arrive and not need to move it again by walking to Manly. Sally (the host) was very friendly and keen to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay. There was even a packet of TimTams in the room. Another nice touch was the suggestions book where guests could suggest restaurants and activities to do while you were in Manly and Sydney. We would certainly stay here again on future trips to Manly.

Room Tip: The loft is fantastic - you must stay there!

We were in Manly to visit family and friends. What a terrific place the Manly Loft is to stay. I liked the idea of your own entrance and the use of the parking permit for our car, a must for Manly!The loft is so spacious, light and super clean. Another highlight is the king size bed, so comfortable.Of course the balcony is a wonderful place to relax and have a glass of wine while watching the ferries roll into the wharf. I can recommend the Manly Loft for service and quality. I had the best night sleeps ever, not like a stuffy hotel room. The hosts are really welcoming and friendly.

We were only staying in Manly for the night and wanted somewhere to stay that was situated close to our family in Freshwater. We enjoy the Ocean, the Pine trees and the laid-back atmosphere that Manly provides. This was the first time that we had stayed at 'The Manly Loft' and we would have no hesitation at going back there again. We were greeted by Sally and Lee and were immediately supplied with Tim Tams and a Parking Permit ! Wow, what a start. Parking in Manly is a concern of ours, but my partner is now reassured of how easy this was for us to park outside of our accommodation. The 'King Room' was big, bright and airy,and was just as it looked on the photo. We like to have a balcony wherever we stay and although there are dwellings down below, I was still able to watch the boats bobbing past on the water. Delightful room and delightful people. Will see you again no doubt.Wendy & Rene
