I stayed in the Manly Pacific hotel with my fiance in February 2010. The hotel is located in North Steyne, which is a wonderful beach front location. We booked the room with the hotel directly and were offered free buffet breakfast with our room. This was an amazing breakfast with lots of choice and definitely kept us going until lunch time. We did not pay for a beach front room but we could actually still see the beach from our hotel balcony, despite not being on the front. You can undoubtedly find a cheaper hotel with the same facilities, however the price is reflected in the superb location. The hotel is located five minutes from the Corso and ten minutes walk from the ferry terminal. There is a gym and a roof top pool for guests to use at the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodation in Manly.
