The motel was in a great location - an easy, picturesque stroll into the village. The room was comfortable and the air-con was great - a nice enough view from the balcony looked onto the bay. Whilst we didn't have the opportunity to use the pool, it looked inviting. The reception was terrific an the ladies were very helpful. For...

We stayed at the Manly Cove weekender cottage and it was the shabbiest place we have ever stayed in australia. The paint is peeling off, the floor planks are loose. Not maintained at all. 1950's cooking stove. Not all windows can be closed. The second bathroom mentioned in the brochure is a dirty dunny under the house to be reached...

In reading your review we were perplexed re a number of statements including the second bathroom?

Lovely location on the grounds of The Manly Royal Yacht Club. Different rooms have balcony views of the yachts. Sue - manager/reception was very helpful & welcoming. Comfortable bed & excellent desk light. Balconies are close so if you have neighbours using their balcony with loud conversation as I did for one of the nights it's just the luck of...

Reviewed 14 September 2016

Spotlessly clean and convenient if you need to be in Manly. However the beds are hard...and when asked for 2 singles I was told it would be an extra $40.00 to split the beds. This would take it to $230.00, expensive as you can find luxury accommodation near the city for just $200.00 including breakfast and free parking. Will not...

Dear pamjimm Thank you for your valued review. It is disappointing to hear that your stay at the Manly Marina Cove Motel was not at the standard that we strive for. In regards to the cost of your stay - splitting of our commercial grade king size beds is a time consuming task hence the additional cost. We agree that...

We had a great long weekend at the motel. Nice and quiet, very comfortable bed, great position and cool boats to look at. The shower was over the bath which I don't like, and the water pressure was fairly low, but most places are the same these days. We would definitely stay again.
