Manly National Apartments
Ranked #7 of 13 Specialty Lodging in Manly
Reviewed January 19, 2010

Manly National is an oldish apartment building located above the post office one block back from the beach. The ocean views from the 8th and 9th floors are good, minimal views from the 6th or 7th floors due to building between the site and the ocean. It is very central to all the fabulous, numerous eateries, beach and shops in Manly, and a short walk from the Manly Ferry to Sydney city. The rooms are self catering with no room service. Local restaurants will home deliver. The main office closes at 5pm, more like an appartment block than a hotel, but a great place to stay for 2 people. The self catering units are small but fine for 2. Two other people can sleep on the fold out sofa beds in the lounge room, linen is provided. You do not need a car to get to the city, the public bus service is good and the ferry is a lovely way to get to the city.

We are timeshare members and so we swapped our 2 bedroom 4 star resort
apartment at Silver Sands in Mandurah, Western Australia for a weeks stay in a 1 bedroom apartment at the Manly National apartments at Manly Beach just out of Sydney.

The best thing about the apartments is their central location - a five
minute walk to the Corso (central shopping) and beach and about a 7 minute walk to the harbourside Manly ferry which takes you direct to Sydney harbour - a half hour relaxing ride. Buy a weekly ticket (a big
saving) and you can ferry via Circular Quay (Sydney Harbour) to any destination on the harbour at any time as well as use it on all metropolitan busses and trains.

The apartment we had was on the 6th floor - about 3 1/2 stars in our opinion as far as an accommodation rating. The apartment is not as nice as the apartment featured on the official apartment website ([----]) however it was clean and neat - a main bedroom downstairs and ensuite bath/shower toilet, a compact modern kitchen, small meals area
with table and chairs and lounge suite, tv, vcr, micro, air con with ocean glimpses through buildings to the beach. (Very small balcony)

There is a swimming pool on the ninth floor, you can sunbake and the views of surrounding areas are quite speccy. There is a coin laundry which is very convenient and also a carpark facility and security to get in and out of the apartments.

There are probably nicer apartments in Manly but if the tarrif is reasonable then for a small family or a couple it is an ideal spot to relax on the beach, enjoy eating at the beachside restaurants and sightsee further.
