I went on a tour for a school excursion, it was kind of interesting, but it wasn't massively incredible. The inscriptions of the boats were good and it was a nice site. more »
What an amazing historical place to stay and learn so much about it. We stayed for 4 days. Perfect experience. Amazing, friendly staff. Perfect views. Clean rooms, full of nature. We also did the Ghost tour which taught us so much about the history of this place and scared us soooooo much. Recommended!!! Cant wait to visit Manly again and stay there again as it is now on our favourite hotel list !!!!! Good job guys.
Excellent hideaway. A true hidden gem in Sydney. Very peaceful and quiet, secluded private beach, shuttle bus throughout the complex, contemporary rooms, 5 star dining - All within the fascinating history of Sydney’s quarantine station.
