Centrally Located Hotel
Travelodge Manly Warringah is located half way between Sydney CBD and Palm Beach, the most northern suburb of Sydney. Situated off Pittwater Road, this hotel is ideal if you don't have a car, as buses run virtually past your front door. And although it is located near the busy Pittwater Road, the hotel lobby, dining area and guest rooms are quiet and peaceful.
The hotel has 120 rooms with individually controlled air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, kitchenette with microwave and tea and coffee making facilities, TV with radio, Foxtel and movie channels, a desk with high PC data and power points, telephone with voicemail facilities, 24 hour reception, laundry and dry cleaning and if you have a car you can park at the hotel's car park for $5 per car per day.
For retail therapy, head over to Warringah Mall, which is approximately 5 minutes by car or 20 minute walk. You will find everything you may need, including cafes, restaurants, 2 food courts, fashion, arts, banks, hairdressing & beauty salons, electronics, several major department stores, accessories, computers, florists, gifts, hardware, books, pharmacies, toys, cinema and so much more.
Parking up to 3 hours is free and opening hours are:
Monday to Friday 9am 5.30pm,
Thursday is 9am 9pm,
Saturday 9am 5pm and
Sunday 10am 4pm.
You will also find parent rooms, which contain bottle warmers, nappy change tables, microwave ovens and secure children's play areas.
The centre also has excellent disability facilities, with special parking spots, lifts and travelators and restrooms.
If shopping is not your thing and you are in the mood for some R&R, then head to one of the northern beaches. Dee Why Beach is only a short drive away and has many cafes and restaurants. Remember to swim between the flags and make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen.
