  • Interesting historical buildings from quarantine days. Converted cottages with large communal areas and tea and coffee stations. You can't drive in but rather take a shuttle from the gate. Nice place ...  more »
  • Me and my girlfriend now wife did this tour 11 years ago and we still talk about it!!! Easily the best ghost tour we have ever done. Absolutely petrifying and jam packed full of history. If we ever go...  more »
  • Q Station is an experience not to be missed. You can visit for the day, but a stay is more beneficial. The historic atmosphere and rooms are just wonderful.

  • Great location. So close to city. Perfect place to stay . We highly recommend this place. To be in Manly was a bonus. My partner was in a lot of neck pain and one staff member (god bless her) recommended a pain clinic in Manly Called The Happy Body. One session and he was good to go and off we went on some fabulous walks on the beach and visited lovely cafes.
  • Not your usual hotel/resort. Rooms comfortable but not luxurious, but you can't beat the views and the historical interest. Good service. Really liked it.
  • A glorified motel. Cold drafts, poor heating a few sachets of cheap instant coffee and a bickie await. Staff were unresponsive and unable to resolve a phone that didn't work. Very important as you will be bused to your room and need to call to get back or to other amenities. Just really poor (very kind at three stars). We will never be back.
  • To all Q station team, We had an awsome and relaxing stay! Thank you very much for looking after us. Boilerroom restaurant's food and atmosphere was excellent All staff we came across were very helpful and very nice. We will surely be back here.
  • Great place to stay and so unique. Magnificent views
