HI Kathleen J

Thanks for the response. So glad you enjoyed the hotel ad its amazing location. Being right on the beach we often find that guests forget their sunscreen and Slip Lop Slap is our mantra to stop sunburn ruining your holiday.

Looking forward to seeing you next time

General Manager

We stayed in a room on the fifth floor of the south tower, with a partial view of the ocean. It was a wonderful location, close to the beach, close to the walking path to Shelly Beach, convenient to the ferry. Manly can get a bit overrun with people, but the Sebel is at a quieter end of the beach. The convenient guest laundry was a real perk. The only tweaks I would suggest is that the Wi-Fi was a little wobbly/unreliable, and the bed linens were a little scratchy. But we would definitely come back to the Sebel Manly, no question. The best thing was being able to leave the door to the balcony open and listen to the crashing surf overnight.

Hello,

I am so thrilled that you had an enjoyable stay at our hotel and loved your room in the South Tower. I couldn't agree with you more, we are so close to the amenities and hustle of Manly, yet we are on the quieter side of the beach, so you can really relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and fall asleep to the crashing of the waves. I am happy that you found our location so convenient!

It is great the hear that you benefited from our free laundry room for our guests. I will certainly mention the WiFi connection to my maintenance manager and he will check it to ensure it is working well. I will also mention the bed linen to my housekeeping team.

Great to hear that you will definitely be back to stay here with us, no questions asked! We hope your next trip will be soon, so you can come back and once again listen to the waves crashing. We definitely look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Kind Regards,
Nanor Shokayan

The hotel has two towers the 2nd tower is behind the first. The hotel does not have a restaurant or bar. Next door is the Manly Wine and Restaurant the hotel has an arrangement with Manly Wine for breakfast only however, if you are booked for breakfast you do not get the full menu. The hotel is comfortable and staff are pleasant, we were on the 5th floor which gives a good view of the beach. The shower is large but is difficult of for elderly guests as there are no hand holds or a wooden stool to sit on. We were disappointed with the balcony which was small with two firm chairs and a small table. It was obvious the room had now been visited by a senior manager for some time as there was lots of bird pooh over the floor and furniture, we had to clean it off the chairs before sitting on them. Of course the birds were regular visitors!

Hello,

I am so happy that you found our hotel very comfortable, our views breathtaking and our staff pleasant.

That is correct, we do not have our own restaurant or bar and we are in a partnership with the restaurant next door. With the breakfast package the restaurant provides a large selection of a la carte dishes as well as a juice and coffee to each guest who have purchased a breakfast package. The restaurant also provides room service to all our guests.

Most hotel showers do not have hand rails. We do have rooms with hand rails and special access rooms to assist with elderly guests. Upon booking next time please ask for one of these rooms, in order to help make your stay more comfortable. Furthermore, we have portable shower chairs which can be brought up to your room at any time to assist.

All our rooms have a balcony, the size may differ slightly depending on the way the building is. The balconies get cleaned after each guests checks out to have them nice and clean for all our guests. I do therefore apologise for that, as we do try our best to ensure that all our balconies are clean.

We hope you do stay with us again in the future and thank you again for your kind words regarding our hotel, location and our helpful staff.

Kind Regards,
Nanor Shokayan
Guest Relations Manager

The location is one of the best in the world. The rooms facing the beach would probably be beautiful but alas we were in the other tower facing the alley. The rooms were comfortable (especially the bed) however nothing could make up for the constant array of trucks emptying garbage in the allay. Often they blocked the whole passage preventing access theough ti the beach. Only stay in the North Tower. Also the switch for the outdoor spa is in a most inconvenient position.

Hello Stephen,

I am thrilled that you loved our location and enjoyed the beautiful Manly Beach! I am happy that you liked our newly refurbished rooms and our brand new comfortable beds.

Regarding the truck lane-way blockage, we do certainly apologise for this. I have informed my Maintenance manager who has assured me that he will speak to the truck companies to ensure they do not block guest usage of the lane. We will certainly rectify this situation today.

Due to Australian pool and safety standards, the spa switch needs to be placed away from the spa as an individual should only be spending a certain amount of time straight in a spa, due to its temperature. I hope this helps clear up your concerns about the placement of the switch.

We hope you do stay with us again and you get to once again enjoy our location.

Kind Regards,
Nanor Shokayan

My partner are currently staying in an ocean view studio deluxe room, which has a spectacular view of Manly beach front every hour of the day. The room itself is funky, colourful and spacious, however does not have a microwave, oven and grill for cooking your own food (which means you have to eat out a lot) I know that some of the other rooms do have these so check before you book. Although about 1.5km away at Shelly Beach they have free beach BBQs. The amenities such as the pool/spa are quiet small but clean and nice, and the restaurant and bar have a great variety of food and drinks options, but can be quiet pricey. The staff are helpful and kind. Would recommend to all couples and families visiting Manly.

Hello,

We hope you are enjoying your stay at our hotel and are so glad you love the view from our ocean view studio room. I am glad you like the brand new furniture and decor of the room. I have found your room number and organised for housekeeping to bring a microwave to your room. Most our rooms in the North Tower have microwaves, however, the rooms that don't have one can simply ask for one and we will gladly bring one up.

I am glad you like the hotel facilities and amenities and the restaurant next door. Thank you for your lovely feedback about our staff and rooms and your recommendation of our hotel. We hope you continue enjoying your stay with us and this beautiful Manly sunshine. Please ask our 24 hour reception team if you have any requests, and the microwave will be up in your room very shortly.

Kind Regards,
Nanor Shokayan
Guest Relations Manager
