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...

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...

This was the first time at the Sebel. 20 mins drive from the airport conveniently sited in the northwest of the city centre and an easy walk in to the city or along the river. We walked into Cataract Gorge from the hotel. We had a deluxe room on the 2nd floor with views onto the adjacent street. The rooms...

Dear Mike, I'm glad you had a nice stay in Launceston to celebrate your anniversary and thanks for your positive remarks about the hotel. Sorry for any confusion on wifi access - there are wireless access points in the rooms as well as reception so I'll check how this is communicated in the rooms. We hope to see you at...

Have stayed here before on several occasions and it is very noticeable that the place is getting run down. The staff are still very friendly and helpful (most of them anyway) however the rooms are looking a bit sad. The curtains in the main bedroom are all torn, looks like a slasher had attacked them, hot plates are really old...

I'm sorry we fell short in a few areas during your most recent stay. My wife and I purchased the property earlier this year and have been working our way through the rooms implementing a series of improvements. We laundered all of the sheer curtains but unfortunately this resulted in damage to some of them. We are currently awaiting new...

We booked the Sebel as a one night get away after a hectic week at home. This hotel was advertised as a boutique hotel so we were not expecting a lot. To our surprise the staff were fantastic and the accomodation was much better than expected, our room was a one bedroom suite complete with kitchenette with dishwasher and washer...

This was the first stop of our three week adventure around the island state. What a great start! The room was spacious and well appointed, very comfortable and warm - we hardly used the a/c during the cold nights and brisk mornings. We could not fault the service either, we were looked after over the three nights we were there....

The hotel is in a nice spot in town with easy access to most attractions. Most rooms are fairly large with separate living rooms. The cafe on ground floor is efficient although selection is a bit limited, however completely in line with expectations so no complaints. Staff was fantastic and helpful.
