Here’s what some of our clients have to say:


“This will be the 25th time that we have booked Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific for our events. Our delegates love staying on Manly Beach. Having natural light in the conference room and views of the ocean, healthy food and plenty of team building activities makes it the perfect venue. We have also found the events staff and AV suppliers to be great to work with and couldn’t recommend them more highly.” Mary, Duval Events


“My clients’ recent conference at the Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific was a great success. I have never heard so many positive comments about hotel food, especially from a group like this that have numerous dietary requirements. They loved the location, being right across the road from the beach – I think it was nice for them to feel a little bit like they were on holidays even though they were there for conference. The hotel staff were easy to deal with in the lead up to the event, and nothing was too much trouble.” Lisa
