      Room was very expensive for what it is. We were billed multiple times. No business facilities. Moved to Novotel down the road for last two nights as much cheaper and better

      Dear James, Thank you very much for the review and please accept my apologies that we did not meet your expectation. It was sad to hear that you had to move to Novotel Manly. Once again I hope your bill has been fixed and nice to hear that you had a great stay at our sister property. We hope you will give us another chance next time. Kind regards Kyong Pang

      I will not step foot in this place if I can help it”

      We booked our one night accommodation at Sebel through Agoda. When we arrived my other half tried to check us and provided my name. They informed him that we do not have a reservation even he already spelt out my surname. I went inside to follow up and the person at reception wasn't even apologetic even though she found our reservation in the end. To begin with it was already a disaster to inform us there is no reservation. You would think she should be thorough and check properly. Secondly, they put as to the South wing which was awful no view of the Manly Beach which is what we expected an ocean view to begin with $464 a night what a rip off. Have I known I would have booked at Novotel at $120 cheaper with a guarantee of a beach view instead we were parked in what looks like an apartment and not a hotel. So when I made a complaint and wanted to move out, I was told we can't leave because we already paid for it. They knew how disappointed we were as I phoned up whilst outside the premises but they did not try to compensate or calm us down in anyway (to think this was supposed to be a bday celebration for my 15 yo daughter) until we checked out the next day. The lady at reception - the moment I informed her of our room told me she will waive the $20 parking. I also informed her the lady on the phone when I made a complaint will give me a 10% discount. This is the audacity of it all, they still charged me the $20 parking then deduct the 10% discount. Worse when I asked for a receipt they could not provide due to printer issue. What a lot of bullcrap. The worse hotel I've stayed ever.

      Fantastic Location”

      We stayed in the family unit at the South Tower. Carpark is right below the rooms but is extremely small. I had to drive around twice to find the entrance to the parking lot as it is not connected to the main building. It'll be helpful if they had a large sign pointing to it. Parking is about $20 ++ per day. The sofa in the room can be extended to become a bed but no bedsheets are provided. We took out the topsheet from the queen bed and used it as a bedsheet for the sofa bed. Also, it's quite flimsy so I wouldn't not recommend the sofa bed to be used for adults. There is a huge sandpit of unfinished construction where the room was facing so we couldn't eat outside the room. The wind kept blowing some of the dust up. It was a pity we had to keep the balcony door closed all the time and activate the air conditioning. Laundry room at the south tower is free to use with satchets of laundry powder provided. The room is open 7am to 9pm. There are 2 washers and only 1 dryer. Overall, the unit is very comfortable with more than adequate toiletries provided. The hotel provides free use of beach towels at the main tower and the location is really everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend The Sebel for a wonderful experience.

      I stayed @ The Sebel for 2 nights we had a1 bedroom kitchenette room with balcony, it was quite spacious and clean. The view was a let down and I found the general hallway to the room on level 3 to be dated and unattended too with rubbish sitting on the floor outside and in need of new carpet and a good paint. The staff were very professional and the location would be the best in Manly. Overall I enjoyed my stay however a makeover would give you a more enjoyable experience and a bit more value for money.

      It was generally a great hotel. The one bedroom apartment was spacious with great balcony offering the vast sea view. It was however lacking of some basic toiletries which aren't sure is due to inefficient housekeeping or intentionally.

      Location, Staff, hotel facilities

      excellent customer service by attentive staff and great location. Hotel facilities were very good although parking was a little confusing to locate at first. On the more pricey side for a one night stay if you pay full tariff, but worth $300 - $400 AUD if you can manage netting the hotel at deal rates.

      Wonderful relaxing stay. Staff appeared genuinely interested in making our stay as comfortable as possible.Just loved the family room suite. The only thing, not necessarily a negative, breakfast menu at Manly Wine did not cater for kids. The toasted sandwiches could not be altered and had grainy mustard, rocket,all items adult portions.
