Sebel Manly Beach – A beachside, motel-style hotel, quiet and perfect for families.
Along the less boisterous end of the esplanade, but still squarely among the action, the Sebel is an excellent choice to relish magnificent Manly. Fresh as the breeze and seeping with tropical charm, the hotel spreads across two towers, each with an outdoor pool – surprising, considering a perfect beach is just meters away. Much of the accommodation caters for families, with plenty of room for extra single beds, while the one and two-bedroom apartments feature kitchenettes, separate lounge/dining areas, and balconies large enough for tables and chairs. Rooms in the North Tower offer gorgeous views of the street and beach (pines and palms permitting); less so, however, from the South Tower. The Sebel is about fifteen minutes on foot along the delightful outdoor pedestrian mall to the ferry terminal. And the boat trip to Manly across Sydney Harbour is truly wonderful.
