“Nice fluffy pillows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Yes, nice fluffy pillows is one of best experience in The Sebel. Room was spacious and overlooks the harbour. Such a warm feeling waking up with that view every morning. Staff were helpful, friendly and remembers you by name. A really wonderful holiday in Cairns.

really good hotel; in very centre of cairns, great staff, fab lobby and bar; rooms very nice, clean- not bad value for such a nice hotel

we prepaid and saved money by getting a breakfast deal

its worth paying the extra for a room at the front of hotel (most have balconies)- the views are sensational (of harbour, sea and atherton tablelands rainforest)...it really is worth the extra cost

Room Tip: pay the extra for a front facing room with balcony.....best hotel room view we have ever experienced...

We ended our week long north QLD stay with the last two nights here, sooooo happy we did.
Staff were really pleasant and accommodating and I must recommend the male house keeper who makes the most fantastic cot bed, our daughter slept the best here than anywhere on our whole trip.
Super clean and the entire hotel including gym, restaurant and pool were all very well maintained.
Really happy and would recommend ... with only drawback in value based on the following:
. Second night room rate was booked last minute and first night online when trip was planned but it was substantial in difference;
. Breakfast should be more around the 15AUD I think .. while it is lovely to have a chef available to cook eggs or an omelette to your liking, the majority of people don't use that luxury.. So over 25AUD per person was too much.

We had a short break here, and found the staff to be super helpful, the hotel was well located and the room very clean and spacious - a lot bigger than nearby hotels we have stayed in like the Hilton & Pulmans Reef Hotel. The bed was smaller than a queen, however very comfortable and great pillows. The table and chairs both inside and outside we found to be useful, and comfortable. The seafood buffet for dinner is amazing, and the breakfast buffet is good also, however very busy with tourists.

This gorgeous hotel is in a great location and is very luxurious. Our room was so nice - clean, large, great balcony, nice bathroom, great service, and comfortable bed. The views are ok, but who cares, the hotel is awesome. They also have nice robes you can wear while you're there.

We went to their seafood buffet which had a chocolate buffet bar and it was really nice. For $65, you get a great variety of food. It's not like an American buffet with tons of average food, the focus is on quality more than quantity.

The only negative was that they charged $3 to make a toll free call! Ridiculous.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our 5 week adventure exploring East Coast Australia...en-route our accommodation had been varied but to a consistently good standard....The Sebel Cairns was a real treat....just beautiful!! Staff were very friendly and always helpful.....Concierge gave us a map and directions to explore the area. Excellent location for the nearby shops/ bars/ restaurants. We enjoyed a long walk by the Marina and along The Esplanade.....very modern and clean! Our room on 10th floor was very clean and comfortable with great views of Cairns...enjoyed watching RCI Rhapsody of the Seas...that really was a big boat! Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent and enjoyed the Lobby Bar in the evening!! Wish we were still there.... LOVED OUR STAY!!!

Room Tip: Harbour view room was nice and sunny.........the area was surprisingly quiet at all times!!

The sebel is in a good location , close to the waterfront, shops and restaurants. The building looks a little tired in places. Our room on the 3 rd floor was opposite a very noisy Casino at night. The room was spacious and clean. The large bed was very comfortable but the room did not smell as fresh as it should, not sure why . The buffet breakfast was delicous and the pool area was nice . The lobby looks very impressive

Room Tip: Avoid a low room at the front of hotel ,opposite noisy Casino.
