We loved our stay at the Sebel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable with an excellent view of the river boats from the very large balcony. Laundry and shower were excellent. The fridge is a bit small but fine for a short stay. Not much room in the ice box though. Great location a short walk to most everything in Cairns. We had an issue with a broken curtain rod which the hotel fixed immediately. Pool upstairs was cold and a bit awkward but with a nice view over the river and parks. I wouldnt choose this hotel for the pool, but the public lagoon one block away is fine for swimming so maybe a hotel pool is not necessary. would be great to have a heated jacuzzi.

We loved the Sebel Harbour lights, our room was a little dated but the bed was huge and comfy and the shower water pressure was so good after a big day of touring. There isn't a large verandah to sit on but we really didn't miss it as there were large double doors to open and we just turned the lounge to look at the view, a perfect way to enjoy morning coffee or happy hour. The pool is awesome with a fantastic view. The staff went over and beyond to help us out, getting us anything we had run out of or needed (a clothes airer) and offered recommendations of places to visit. The reception staff were super friendly, very knowledgable and always greeted everyone with a smile. A big shout out to Gregory, people like you are born to be in tourism/hospitality, you made our stay so much better with your recommendations, smile, jokes and just happy to have a chat attitude (I hope you get to find your ever elusive cassowary and tree kangaroo). Would highly recommend Harbour Lights.

What a great find! CHL is walking distance to points of interest including restaurants and the markets. Our room was clean, spacious and had a beautiful view of the harbour. At reception, Greg and Caroline have been excellent, informative and always happy to help. We’ll definitely stay there again when we’re in Cairns.

Was checked into a room initially on the fourth floor and noted the bathrooms had problem with opening the connecting door from the bedroom, the toilet roll holder was pointing downwards so the toilet roll wouldn't stay on and the shower head was unable to be pointed downwards. Worst of all it looked like the room was not cleaned properly as there were a lot of strands of female hair on the bed and many crumbs on the carpet. Told the reception who offered to move me to a different room this time on the second floor. Not only was the room smaller but there were still issues such as mould behind the bathroom door and dirty couches. Couldn't be bothered to be moved again so just dealt with it for the four nights. Would not personally stay there again.
