My wife and I are members of Accor's Loyalty scheme and had a free night owing to us. We didn't have the time to get out of Sydney so decided to try the Q Station hotel at manly.
What a great job has been done in restoring this iconic sight that represents so much of Australia's immigrant history. Not quite Ellis Island, but a very important part of Australia's hiistory.
The rooms are all located in the old first and second class accommodation. Most rooms have an en suite or involve a short walk to a private bathroom. Our room had a superb view up the harbour, which would have been magnificent if the weather had been a bit better.
The room is not big, but is made up for by a beautifully equipped bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and the location ensures that you are not subject to traffic noise. In fact the quiet can be a bit disconcerting.
The Boiler house restaurant provides a very well thought out menu that covers all the basics. The food we had was well prepared and cooked. Breakfast, was not in the tariff, but was quite reasonable for $20 per head..
All in all a great place to stay for an anniversary, or a place for groups of friends to stay, particularly if you get Adjoining rooms and meet for drinks on the common verandah.
Well worth a least one visit at least. I'm sure we will be back
