James V. Families - 11/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice unit and helpful staff. Very disappointed that couldn't book a pool lane for the entire stay, despite asking on 4 separate occassions. Plus whenever we walked by the pool it was always empty. For this reason will not stay again.

Honoured credit from March 2020

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Danny Couples - 11/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We used a credit from March 2020 which was no problem for the hotel. We paid a little extra but that is fine. Wife wasn't happy that the pool had to be booked. Would have been nice to know this before she headed down there. It also seemed a bit over the top given we has just been to the football and had close contact with 20000 people. I understand this may be beyond your control. All in all we had a good stay.

Ok for the price

We stayed two nights in a lovely apartment in a good location. Om the second afternoon we thought we would do some cloths washing and dry but the door to the washer/dryer was jammed closed. the night friendly manager came to look at it but could not correct it. He offered some whine which we declined because we dont drink it so i jokingly asked for some free parking which he did not hesitate. I was very appreciated for this and thanked him, this was very good service, cheers.

Convenient to office and comfortable with extra space compared to regular hotel

Roger Business - 08/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Uneventful. No access to the gym - disappointing. Breakfast at cafe on day 1 was fine. However, on day 2, after I was seated, I didn't get service so ended up leaving - not satisfactory service.

Great location

Erin Families - 08/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a great location for the things we wanted to do. Walking distance to ArtVo, Melbourne star, shopping etc It was a little disappointing to find we had to book times for the hotel pool etc and couldn’t because it was booked out. We had a family room and that was a good size for us.

Miss A. Solo - 03/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

A great location and comfortable stay in Melbourne. Not far from the CBD and minutes to Docklands. Very clean premises and enjoyable stay. Unfortunately, experienced poor communication when booking from Interstate and required several calls to reach the reservation manager to ensure confirmation of booking. Booked a 1 bed with water views and this was confirmed on the final confirmation email, however when i arrived, i was advised no rooms with water views were available - no other explanation of my confirmation from the lady at check-in. I also had to chase up my complimentary breakfast coupon with a very helpful gentleman on the following day. The lady at Check out was very friendly and helpful. Took advantage of the FOMO Victoria tourism deal, 1 night stay for $250 with 2nd night free. If this is how interstate tourism is treated, i will be sure to advise other queenslander friends to stay elsewhere.

Well located, convenient to tram stop.

Joyce Couples - 02/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When booking in we were given a card as a breakfast booking, but it wasn't explained. When we found our room there was no cool water provided. Nor was there any surprise there, although this was promised on our online booking documentation. However, on returning to reception a gentleman attended to us. He was very polite and apologized. He then provided a bottle of wine of our choice, plus 2 bottles of water plus a small box of chocolates. We thanked him for his service.

Good Stay at Docklands

Another good stay at the Sebel Melbourne Docklands. The staff are very attentive to our needs and requirements. Could not fault any nature of the stay. The room had a great view and was well laid out with kitchenette and two bedrooms and lounge.

Dear Ross, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed staying at The Sebel Melbourne Docklands, positively highlighting the service you received. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Brandy Wang Hotel Operations Manager

Never leave a review normally and have had mostly positive experiences with Accor, Was accosted by security, dirty room, less than helpful staff, and too many other disappoints to include in 200 characters

Adele C 15/06/2020 TripAdvisor review

We booked at The Sebel for a inner city (mid week) stay. we found the staff to be most helpful and accommodating but the facilities are a bit tired and worn and the place could do with a good paint (and preferably not purple!) as the corridors are quite dark. While it was advertised as having kitchen facilities the bare minimum was provided, no cooking utensils, one saucepan and a sandwich maker was all that was provided. We only had breakfast in the room (had brought our own) so the lack of kitchen supplies wasn't a problem for us but might be if you planned to cook. We only received one towel each, no hand towels or face washers and the smallest packet of soap I've ever seen. I did ask for more pillows and the staff were most obliging but should you have to ask for basics like hand-towels?

Expedition524048 08/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

Suitable apartment in a reasonable location with adequate local shopping and eating facilities. Rooms are quirky if without a balcony. Evening in house eating is limited depending what day of the week it is.

Dear Expedition524048, Many thanks for your feedback regarding your Sebel experience. We are glad to hear you had a pleasant stay with us. It is true that some of our apartments have an odd lay out, however they all have the same equipment and facilities. Our restaurant Capri Café is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch only but we are very fortunate to have a good choice of restaurants around us. We look forward to seeing you again soon Warm regards Florence Hairie

goforpace Family - 08/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The service from staff excellent, however would have thought for 3 night stay would have got a change of towels. Rooms made up as requested. Could use a better quality garbage bag not very hardy. No problem with parking

Dear goforpace, Thank you for your review and for mentioning our friendly staff. Apartments at The Sebel receive a daily service whereas the Sebel Residences are only serviced once a week. If you stayed at the Residences, that might be why your apartment was not serviced. I do apologize if you stayed at the Sebel and the Housekeeping team missed your room. We hope you will visit us again soon Kind regards Florence Hairie
