Rooms are very clean and well appointed, people are friendly, and the breakfast (especially the coffee) at the Manly Wine Bar is very good. My only two suggestions would be and update to the TVs to HD, as... More

This is a great place to stay if you arrive in Sydney from overseas, ideal to sleep of some jet lag before you start having business meetings. The hotel is only 5mins from the ferry to the city (30mins ferry ride or 18mins on the more expensive private fast ferries). The superior rooms have a little kitchenette and lounge and... More

we decided to stay at the Sebel based on the reviews and the pictures on Trip Advisor. We saw other reviews about the 'South Tower' not having views of the ocean. And yes, we were put in the south tower, overlooking apartments and North Head. The Sebel is a nice apartment style hotel but check where your room is before... More
