Manly Lodge Boutique Hotel
Ranked #9 of 9 Manly B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Stayed here last week for 8 nights. I was slightly worried after reading previous reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Here goes. The location is brilliant, 100 meters from many sea front, and manly wharf. Loads of bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Maid service everyday. Free included breakfast every day, not extensive but freshly cooked. Free wifi (only in certain parts of the hotel). The room was adequate. Staff were friendly and nice.
To all you people who complain about it, if you are happy with the price this is what you will get, if you want more luxury in the area look elsewhere, and pay x2/x3 the amount per night.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled on business

Hi there,
I would like to thank you for a pleasant experience we had in staying at your hotel with the great room rates. It was so lovely, we absolutely adored the family suite from the fully furnished kitchen to the jacuzzi in the bathroom, and the beds were so comfortable. The location is so close to everything we needed, Coles, restaurants, the beach. We will definitely be coming here again. Your staff are awesome with the room service, the complimentary breakfast was lovely, great coffee by the way.
Cheers

As other reviewers have already noted it is as well I wasn't traveling with a cat ...... since the cat would have been unable to swing for the duration of the stay. That said the room was comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water to shower. One minor issue (beyond the control of the hotel) is that a street cleaning lorry came past the window of the room at about 5am each day. The staff were very friendly and the bacon and eggs at breakfast were lovely. Prices were okish bearing in mind the ridiculous Sydney prices for hotels but don't expect 4* quality. This is a good hotel if you want basic accommodation in a good location in Manly.

Room Tip: Try and get one that doesn't face Victoria Parade

We stayed two nights here. We only wanted to stay for one night for a special occasion, but you had to book for two nights. We stayed in a standard room, which was just big enough to swing a cat. There was an ensuite, but the doors were folding and easy to bump into from the bed. Concertina doors would have been more appropriate for the space. The other rooms out the back of the Lodge and down the side looked nicer and bigger. Breakfast in the Cafe was good and on the house for residents and it had a nice ambience. There was no parking provided, but the Lodge provided a parking permit, which was Judy as well because it was very hard to get a park. The Lodge was handy to everything in Manly on foot, especially restaurants and the beach.

Room Tip: The standard room was adequate, but if you want to stay longer and have a bit of space, upgrade to t...

after saving very hard for trip of lifetime decided to go to manly which looked beautiful but arrived and had to carry own suitcases up stairs along a disgusting dirty hallway with filthy carpet and shabby looking hallway ! entered room and smell hit us straight away, room hadnt been aired and opened window to find no lock on it and broken blind that you couldnt close. couldnt have cup tea in room because the kettle was scaled. origionally booked 3 nights but only stayed 1 night and couldnt wait to get out. complete waste of money under false write up. they shouldnt be allowed to do this. they say go on whatif but to no avail yet. manly lodge boutique (how did they manage to call it that and get away with it?)

Room Tip: have a look at room before you pay money

As a surfer and lover of the beach Manly Lodge is in the perfect location. You are 2 minutes from Manly Beach, or 3-5 minutes walking distance to Manly Wharf for access to the ferries into Sydney's CBD. The corso is just a couple of blocks away for access to heaps of shopping, food, bars, etc.

I stayed in a budge room, which was better than I expected. There is an air-con unit on the wall. There was a double bed, TV, free Internet and a small kitchenette for cooking your own dinner. There is also a fridge/freezer.

The place is pretty clean. The bathroom was pretty small but no worries, it did the job.

The staff are friendly and willing to help with your requests.

Booked a budget family room and at the time was advised it was a very small room - how right they were! The room was tiny and the ensuite was the smallest I have ever seen, the entire bathroom was the size of some showers in larger hotels (not an exaggeration). The carpet was a bit grotty and needed replacing but the beds were oh so comfy and had quality linen. It was clean and the room was serviced daily.

The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful and we were given a free breakfast downstairs which was enjoyable and a nice touch.

The biggest thing this hotel has going for it is its location - just a couple of streets over from the corso, a short stroll to the beach and a few steps to the manly ferry and bus station. Awesome for a family holiday.

All in all a cute little hotel I would definitely consider going back to (probably in one of the larger rooms!)

Room Tip: Avoid the 'budget' rooms - The location is worth splurging for an upgrade, and most of the h...
