We (my partner and both our mothers - we all met at Manly coming via Melbourne, Leeds, and Mudgee) recently stayed at Cecil St, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The house is just beautiful and the rooms superb. It is a short walk to Manly Beach and Corso, but not too close - you feel secluded and quiet...

What a wonderful couple of days we've just had at the Cecil Street B&B, a charming heritage home tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in the hills above Manly. It's a great place to base yourself for a northern beaches adventure and within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of the Manly CBD and ferry terminal. Our host, Linda,...

We were in Manly Beach for a conference and stayed here instead of at the conference hotel. The owner, Linda, was very helpful and actually drove us, with our luggage to the place we stayed after leaving here. She had limited availability (popular place), so we moved after only 3 nights with her. The breakfast she provided included fresh fruit...

We stayed there just before the last Christmas season. It was the first time for us stay in Manly and we did chose the right place! We had a very nice talk with Linda and she was so kind and nice especially for my boy. We loved the lovely breakfast, too! Thank you so much! 小高い丘の上にあるとても静かな住宅街の一角にある家庭的な雰囲気のBBです。ビーチにも歩いて10分程。2部屋+リビングがゲスト用で、朝食のフルーツ、ヨーグルト、パンなどもすてき。ホストは女性、子供との滞在でしたが中庭で気軽にお話したりと楽しく過ごせました。お部屋も清潔。ビーチ近くの人混みから離れていて夜は静かで窓からポッサムの鳴き声が聞こえてきました。とてもおすすめです!
