Have to say the location of this hotel is brilliant. Step out the door you are on the beach. Easy walk to from the warf, central to all the attractions. I had a standard room out the back, was very spacious, clean and comfortable, balcony had a glimpse of the ocean. Sure I would be raving about my experience, if I had been given a room with ocean view!! Overall very happy.
We had a great 6 day stay in a two bedroom duplex apartment. The living area overlooked the ocean, whilst the bedrooms were at the back and so we didn't hear the sound of surf overnight. The balcony got the morning sun, great for having breakfast outside. The reception staff could not have been better. We even managed to negotiate a slightly later checkout. The Apartment is less than 50m from the Corso, and so about 7 minute walk from the ferries at Manly Wharf. There is a regular ferry from the Wharf to Toronga Zoo for those interested. Lots of good restaurants within 5 minutes of the Apartment. I would recommend the Manly Fish Cafe for excellent fresh fish. There are several good walks. Shelly Beach is a great 20 minute walk away. A great and relaxing stay
Stayed at the Outback Lodge with my daughter and we where pleasantly surprised. The Room was elegant, very clean, and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. The Staff was also very friendly. I would stay there again. Its only 5 minutes walk from Manly Beach and all the good Food and Shops. Thank You. Angelika
The best thing about the room was the comfortable bed and bedding. The room was very basic, but couldn't find the power point to recharge my phone. It was probably behind the bed but didn't get around to looking. It would have been helpful if there was a warning somewhere say on the website that the shared bathroom had never been renovated then I wouldn't have been a bit surprised. All the same, the accommodation was okay for a place so close to the beach for a night.
Great location, one street back from the beach, under 10 min walk to the main shops, pubs and restaurants. We had a queen room, spacious and spotless. The shared bathroom was so clean and modern. Definitely cannot complain for the price.

This northern suburb of Sydney is famous for its beaches, which are popular with surfers the world over. Make sure to hike atop the cliffs of North Head Sanctuary for unforgettable views of Sydney and its environs. The Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary features penguins and also lets you (safely) dive with sharks. Hungry? Head for The Corso, a busy outdoor mall with plenty of cafes and restaurants.
