We stayed here for two nights in June. The room was surprisingly big, with a separate bedroom, and separate toilet from the bathroom. The toilet was a little dodgy, sprayed water out a bit when you flushed. I had actually forgotten it had a kitchenette so it was a nice surprise to see it and your own private laundry. But... More

I've stayed there twice now for 2 nights at a time and both times were really impressed with the service I received from the ladies. Always smiling and even upgraded me one visit cause I mentioned my son might be coming to visit. The rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and after a long day at work. I look forward coming... More

Having had meals at The Sebel in the passed and not having been for a while we had a return visit just a little while back. It was certainly busier that we had experience before and so we perhaps waited a little longer than expected for service but a busy restaurant is often considered to be good as it is... More

We have been making menu and wine list changes to showcase our great Tasmanian produce, and are very focused on welcoming local residents to the restaurant. We hope that you be back in again -- perhaps for breakfast? Kind regards, Dougal... More

We had 3 nights at the Sebel. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. As an Accor advantage Plus member we naturally asked for an upgrade, none was available. Then came the welcome package. a chocolate (one only) and a 600ml botle of water! A far cry from what we received when we went to the Accor hotel... More

We were booked here on a very busy night in Launceston and were not disappointed. The rooms are more like apartments with separate bedroom and large bathroom with separate toilet. There is a restaurant and bar on sight with a lounge and gas fire - like home and a block or two from the city centre. Parking on site for... More

The Sebel is conveniently located a short walk from the commercial centre of Launceston and very close (but not intrusively so) to the transit centre. It's also a short walk to the riverside. There is nothing overtly remarkable about The Sebel Launceston but, like most Sebel properties I've visited, it has a understated modern stylishness evident in careful choice of... More
