It’s a good cheap option and the staff were super friendly. They mentioned an upgrade to a slightly larger room. While not the properties fault we were placed next to what can only be described as a noisy and violent frat group of idiots under 20... noise until late with doors slamming and a rude 7am wake up from the screams in the room next door. Had hoped for a relaxing night. Not so much.

Overall Stay was Disappointing but great location
We found this stay to be quite disappointing. The owner of the property was very abrupt when we arrived and wasn't very friendly. When we went into our apartment, it wasn't what the pictures showed. It was much smaller and very strict. You were given a set of fees for if things weren't done e.g. $25 charge for if cutlery is not washed prior to exit and $25 if anything is left in the fridge. Although we would respect these rules, we felt they were very strict and wasn't exactly very welcoming or trustworthy of owners. There was no soap in the toilet when the property listed that toiletries were available, this is not very COVID-19 friendly and the main light did not work. The bathroom was very small and nothing like the photos online. However, the location was great and the fact that we were walking distance from Manly was very good. We did not spend much time in the hotel as it was very small so did not end up using the kitchen. We were also worried too due to the strict rules.

It was clean except the bottom sheet had black grit on it as if someone before us had used it and not changed. The blanket would not be even warm enough for a dog bed it would be thrown away if given to the op shop. there was no electric blanket and the heater which we had to leave on all night because of the thin blanket took all the oxygen out of the room. We were glad we were the only ones there as a shared 1 bathroom had the toilet in it and it would be for maybe 4 Rooms. The place was well kept and quiet it was a charming setting. The book in was not explained well as we had trouble getting the code I think that was the fault of last minute.com.au. Manly is a great place to go and the accommodation is well placed for transport but take blankets with you if it is the middle of winter as we went then. I was close to the beach in a quiet street.
