Right on the beachfront of beautiful Manly, this boutique hotel is a mixture of studios and one- and two-bedroom suites, all with private balconies; the more-spacious accommodations have hot tubs, kitchenettes, and high-tech goodies. Request a south tower room because they were renovated in 2011, although all bathrooms were upgraded in 2013 and all rooms were treated to new beds. There's free Wi-Fi in the lobby but in-room charges are A$24.50 a day. The on-site restaurant,
Manly Wine, is one of the hippest places in the area to dine.
