I recently stayed at Q Station as part of a work conference. I was captivated by the place.
It is in a beautiful setting in Manly, away from the noise and bustle of the main strip. It has a magical atmosphere and feels quite removed from the rest of modern Sydney. The views over the water are quite incredible. There is a real sense of peace (almost like a place that time forgot) and relaxation here.
The rooms were full of character and mine had a private bathroom but I am aware that not all of them did. It was comfortable but the lack of air con might make it hot during the summer - even in late Summer, I had to have my ceiling fan on full blast. It was still warmer in the room than I normally like.
The rooms do not have great sound proofing. Many of the rooms share communal veranda space, so anyone walking these may pass through "private" space adjacent to rooms. The experience makes it clear that these were indeed designed for group or communal living for those undergoing quarantine in Sydney.
The dining was limited in choice but wasn't of bad quality. It was good but by no means spectacular. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. Check in and check out were fantastic - all done in record time and without any fuss at all.
All in all, I really enjoyed staying here - stunning to arrive by water and to enjoy the peace of this place as a place of retreat in modern Sydney.
