    Novotel Manly has been working with Think Local since 2015. Think Local is a wholesome platform that allows us to market all of our events including weddings, corporate events, promotions and our specials, especially at our newly renovated restaurant Bistro Manly.

    What we love about Think Local is the local focus. Since opening this has allowed us to push our weekly specials such as brunch and BYO wine on Wednesdays. We are hoping to bring more locals into our restaurant so this has been the perfect platform for us to use.

    With an elevated digital reach we’re hoping to reach a younger demographic to come dine with us at the Bistro. We’re excited to see where our growth takes us with Think Local.”
