The Sebel is centrally located with most things in the city in walking distance. Front desk were efficient and courteous. 2nd floor apartment was large and fully appointed with kitchen and laundry facilities although not needed for 1 night stay. Large bed and large bathroom.

Staff were fine, rooms were clean and a decent size. No real complaints but there are a few things people should be aware of if they're not already; * Location is not too far from the town clock, which chimes loudly every hour. * Parking is not provided free of charge * There was no free in-room wifi

I booked accommodation at this Hotel over 12 months before our stay. We booked for 5 nights in a "2 Bedroom Loft Apartment". We were travelling with 2 teenage children so we booked this apartment as it had 2 living areas, so we would have our own space. I have been an ACCOR Member for over 10 years, so chose... More

We stayed overnight in a 3 bedroom apartment. The accommodation was clean, warm and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service matched. The apartment would be ideal for a longer stay with excellent kitchen and laundry facilities. We felt safe walking around the CBD area. Parking was easy in the hotel carpark.

The room is generously spacious and was very clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely, even making me a drink that wasn't on the menu. And the price was very reasonable for the room and location. The black out blinds were a godsend and the bed was super comfy. A few small things, use the ear plus they provide. They... More

The staff at this hotel were the most helpful and kind people we'd come across in a hotel before. If you needed a hand with bags or anything, it seemed like one would pop up right next to you with a smile and help you! One lady even helped us cart our bags to the car. The room we had... More
