Stayed at the Sebel at Manly for a change from Sydney cbd hotels.
Location - right at South Steyne beach (excellent for tourists, not so sensible for business in the cbd or North Sydney). Many restaurants within easy walking distance. Also easy walk to ferry terminal.
Room - I had a beach front room with balcony (with great view). Room was spacious with a comfortable bed. Plenty of room in bathroom and good shower pressure although the warning to keep the door closed while showering - apparently an open door meant that the fire alarm might be triggered. (Bizarre)
Staff - friendly
Room - no wifi in room (hey, this is the 21st Century!) and reception in lobby was patchy. TV picture fuzzy with static. Cleaning okay but not 100%.
Staff - not very knowledgeable about the area (eg couldn't really recommend places to eat, didn't really know the ferry situation).
Gym - none but having said that, the running/walking path along the beach is a wonderful place for a run at sunrise.
Pool - looked OK but too small for exercise. Again, the beach is on your doorstep.
Room rate - priced on beach location but too high for the quality of the hotel itself.
