Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The pool and pool area are fantastic. Great location is about a 10 minute walk from town. Close enough for lunch and dinner. The guy who checked us in was very polite and did his best to make us feel welcome. I had low expectations due to previous reviews. I think they were a little unjustified because there is very easy access to the hotel from the parking lot without walking up the steep driveway. Rooms are a bit outdated, but worth the price.

We had to fly to Airlie Beach from Perth due to a family emergency. I booked the hotel with a lovely man at reception over the phone before flying out. Upon arrival, we met the most beautiful human being called Nicole. ❤️ From the moment we walked in, Nicole literally did everything she could to make our stay there a comfortable one. It meant the world to our family during a difficult time, and we will never forget her for this and will always be grateful. Based purely on our experience with Nicole, we will definitely be back to this hotel in the future, I can honestly say, without hesitation, we would never stay anywhere else now. I highly recommend the Sybel Airlie Beach to anybody, especially those with a family due to their amenities in the hotel and in your room.

We had a wonderful stay at The Sebel. The room was spotless and very spacious with a beautiful view. But most of all, the customer service was excellent. Nicole was outstanding and went out of her way to make our stay a wonderful experience and the other staff were also very helpful and efficient. We will definitely be back.

The whole team were all very friendly and accommodating from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very quiet and fantastic views. The location suited us perfectly, far enough to be away from the noise but close enough to be within walking distance to everything

Husband and I stayed 4 nights in a 2 bedroom 5th floor ocean view apartment. A mixed review follows. PLUS POINTS The Sebel occupies a steeply sloping sight and we had a great view out over the Ferry Terminal and the smaller of Airlie’s Marinas towards Double Cone Island. Plenty of interesting marine activity, not noisy. The road into town and the residential road between have plenty of local traffic, but not intrusive and quiet at night. Smallish but very clean pool and spa with pleasant deck. Same view. Comfortable beds, one king, two singles. Good wifi up to 70 mbps Free parking, a bit limited, different levels due to sloping site. Excellent meals at the Colonial Palms Motel right opposite. Reception Staff and especially Housekeeper Julie. Could not do better, certainly in view of our disappointed grumbles in view of the following :- MINUS POINTS For four people the Apartment is not large Even allowing that set ups vary between properties, the impression given here is that only the bare minimum of everything has been supplied, especially kitchen crockery, utensils etc. Frustrating. Microwave above my head height 165cm, safety hazard. Julie moved it. No instructions for anything. Not really unusual. Twin bedroom wardrobe full of ironing board and clothes drying rack needing removal to make room for clothes thus congesting room space. King bedroom Venetian blind could not be raised preventing access to the small rear deck. These are annoying disappointments but the main complaint was that there is only one small shared toilet/shower room.Think ‘en suite’. For two of us it was just OK but for four people with towels, toiletries etc it would hardly be adequate. But worse, one side of the shower was a floor to ceiling window looking onto the lounge/dining/kitchen area. True the glass was frosted to perhaps a little over half way up but frankly I don’t want to sit on the couch and see someone else’s, not even my husband’s, head and shoulders in the shower and vice versa. To me this is not acceptable. Everyone needs some bathroom privacy. In spite of the above shortcomings we did enjoy our stay largely due to Juli and the Receptionists who helped us as best they could and were always friendly, pleasant and obliging. Whether we would return is questionable, but at least we now know what to expect.

We are Platinum Accor members so was quite surprised and disappointed when we checked in. It was our mistake that we didn't realise that this was an apartment hotel, however, there was no care, restaurant or bar on site at all - we couldn't even get ice for an ice bucket!!! The room had a nice view of the harbour, with a nice lounge. The bathroom and bedroom were tiny. The bathroom was tiny and narrow with everything squashed into a small area, not practical at all. The bedroom only had wardrobe space, no draws at all and the walkway between the bed and the bookcase was very narrow. There is also no daily service, which again wasn't detailed enough on booking. The location is good with about an 800 metre walk to town. We wouldn't stay here again as it was just way too basic for the dollars spent and not up to Accors standards in my opinion.

Thank you Tracy for your feedback. This will help us to work on the finer details an Accor member expects. We are sorry you weren't informed we are self-contained, non-serviced apartments. That's one of our greatest selling points, as it makes our fabulous property affordable for many. I have asked Nicole the property manager to reach out to you to personally apologise for this disappointing stay. Kind regards, Sarah | Guest Experience at the atHotelgroup.com

Very clean and well presented property. A nice easy 10 minute walk to the centre of town. The unit had views to the water and catered for everything. The kitchen and laundry although small did their job well. Highly recommended.

We had a mate visit from the UK so thought we would splash out on an apartment. We were very excited for this trip but met with disappointment. The bathroom needs to be re-grouted and tiles steamed. Shower recess and drain replaced. Large stains on bed covers and topper. What looks to be camp lights hung under the kitchen range hood. The apartment was quite small. Would not recommend a family stay. The owner of this apartment needs to spend a night and I'm sure they'll reach the same conclusion. We did enjoy the views, washer and dryer facilities, espresso machine and for the most part the comfort of the beds. It was also a close proximity to town. Only a short walk but be prepared for hills. Staff were friendly but you do receive a lot of SMS messages about tours etc.

I'm sorry to read of your disappointment with The Sebel. This is very unlike their normal high standards. Your feedback and photos will allow me to follow up and have the team pay more attention to detail. Being a paperless society, sending texts messages helps keep guests informed of tours, dinning and most relevant information as there is no longer compendiums in the rooms. Our apartments are well equipped with the necessities and do have fabulous views. Please contact me directly should you wish to return to Airlie Beach. We would love to make up for this experience.

Well situated for shops and ferries. Spotlessly clean unit with very comfortable beds and good quality linen. Staff very welcoming and Nicole answered my emails promptly whilst arranging the booking. Enjoyed the company of the sulphur-crested cockatoos! Only downside was the very steep incline to the entrance but would definitely recommend The Sebel.
