We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a trip to Launceston. The reception ave a good impression and our room was fresh and modern with all the features of a one bedroom apartment: aircon, kitchenette with fridge and microwave, bathroom with washing machine and drier, separate bedroom with wardrobe, iron and ironing board. There is a small balcony... More

traveling on business. Had to wait 15 minutes to check in as staff walked past smiling. Not one asked if we need any help. Restaurant service was slower, had to get own menu and almost went to get my own drink. The steaks was the only thing that I would get back for.

Thankyou Nicholas A for this feedback. I apologise that the front office staff was away from the desk attending another concern. In general we do have it manned at all time. While we have trained most of our staff from the restaurant to work with the front office systems we still have a few to go which would have assisted... More

I stayed at the Sebel for 2 nights on a business trip. My room on the first floor was noisy and there was no ventilation or extractor fan in the bathroom. Instead of inputting my Le Club Accor Platinum membership in, reception created a new account for me and put the points from the stay to a separate new account.... More

Thankyou Juztan for your feedback on your stay. I do apologise about the way we handled your stay. Our air conditioning unit which can have the temperature raised and lowered was set on the heating mode instead of the air conditioning mode for that room when inspected by our maintenance team. I have gone through with all our team so... More

Having stayed at the Sebel in Adelaide we had great hopes for the Launceston one and for its restaurant and were a bit disappointed on both counts. We arrived on a Saturday evening and the single reception staff seemed harried and unhelpful. Our room was huge but had crazy utilities for a couple only spending one night there - it... More

Thankyou notacouchpotato for your feedback. Being a cbd hotel and with rooms facing out on all sides, the views tend to be of the city buildings. In high occupancy times we do need to use every room available. Our one and in particular two bedroom style apartment rooms do have many features for those staying a few days or wish... More

I was lucky enough to stay at the Sebel for three nights, and was also " bunkered down here" in one of the meeting rooms for 3 days. The rooms are excellent. Large, comfortable and self contained. The breakfasts were great, served by incredibly attentive and friendly staff. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent. We were a party of 12,... More

My husband and I stayed with my parents in February. Four people in a two bedroom self continued apartment. Was disappointed from the start. Run like a motel, not a well known hotel brand. The room was a very odd configuration. You enter into a very dark, dim corridor. It had two bedrooms, but one leads onto the lounge with... More

Thankyou soozinoz for your valuable feedback. I am sorry you were dissapointed with your stay. While we are planning a refurb of our lobby and the restaurant in the coming months, all the rooms are still in their original condition from when the hotel was built nearly 9 years ago. We are making plans for the change down the track... More

Thankyou dmorr for your comments on your stay. I am happy you found the style of our 2 bedroom apartments suited your needs.

Enjoyed our stay at The Sebel Launceston. The location is central and within walking distance to food and entertainment venues. The room itself was generally clean, very spacious and the bed was more than comfortable.
