“Very good hotel but standards slipping a little”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

This is a really lovely hotel and has a great, stylish beachy feel. It's modern but something a bit different to the mainstream. Several people complain about the open bathroom design which is lovely if you are on your own or with a close couple, and if not, just close the folding mirror doors, and you have a standard room, so this shouldn't be counted as a negative. I have stayed here a couple of times before, and enjoyed each stay. The bed is really comfortable. A short walk to the nearby beach is a pleasure as is the indoor pool and the mineral bath. However this stay, I could see a few things that really should be attended to by the maintenance department. In my room, there was a large gap between the doorframe and the tiles where some grouting had fallen out, there was some sticky tape over the bottom of the wardrobe (presumably to hold some loose veneer back in place), the varnish on the towel racks was scratched and patchy, and the silicone around the base of the shower was mouldy and needs replacing. None of these items would take much time or cost to attend to but they give a sense that the hotel is sliding into shabbiness, which is a great pity. A bit of signposting back to the hotel and some lights to guide one back from the beach at night would be great too. A meal at Simon's cafe at the surf club (15 minutes walk along the beach back towards the city centre) is highly recommended; it is far more reasonably priced and better food than the Sebel's own restaurant. You also get to look at the surf while you dine.

great rooms, the hotel seems to have been laid out by an architect who did not visit the site. The conference centre is where the best rooms could have been and the rooms overlook the waste disposal of the neighboring hotel but have an ocean view.
Rooms are very nice and the restaurant was good for breakfast. we did not dine because the place was almost busy (there were two free tables when we asked but we were told that we would have to wait half an hour...time to find another restaurant!).
Good breakfast.
BUT WHY DO THEY HAVE TO CHARGE EXTRA FOR ESPRESSO WHEN ALREADY PAYING 30$ FOR BREAKFAST???? Petty and annoying. Also annoying is the fact that they do not have free wifi. The smallest B&B and every motel almost has free wifi for guests.

Booked one night here on wotif and was expecting the usual worst room of the house and we did not get that! Booked a studio and it was fantastic. Arrived at 8.30pm and check was quick and easy and asked for a 12 noon checkout... no problem. Room great, good air conditioner, great bathroom.. couldnt have asked for anything else really. All staff encountered were brilliant. Had buffet breakfast the next morning and we had a fresh coffe made for us cos the one in the urn had been sitting there for a while.. wow.. her suggestion not ours! Breakfast was simple with bacon, scrambled eggs, sausages, hash browns, tomatoes and mushrooms.. (all I can remember) juices, cereals, breads, pastries and muffins.. very adequate. Not sure if I wopuld do it again but it was brilliant for us as we then walked over to the beach for a swim. I would highly recommend this place and will stay here again.
