“Comfortable stay, good room service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Must try the natural oysters with limoncello! Amazing! So is the snow crab fettuccine for room service meals.

Great gym, sauna, spa & pool. Shame pool isn't heated.

Good buffet breakfast, serving quality yoghurt brands such as Chobani, and quality organic local produce.

Comfortable and clean rooms. Friendly service especially from the doorman Terry.

Close walk to Rundle Mall and across the road from the Adelaide convention centre.

Stayed December 2013, traveled on business

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

We were here for a week and the hotel is generally very good
What stood out was the friendliness and assistance from the staff which was unusually excellent
All of them on the desk and the concierge could not have been more helpful particularly as they had the Australian cricket team at the same time!
Thanks to all and it is the main reason I would recommend so highly

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Especially recommended is the concierge, who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Without doubt, without his expertise we would not have had such good experiences and a great time. Lovely old hotel with lots of character. Rooms spacious with everything you could need. The breakfast is an experience but to our taste a little over the top and somewhat expensive but if you are into large breakfasts this could be for you. Location excellent. The only downfall, which is constant bug of mine, is that you have to pay for wifi. Hotels really should include free wifi in the room price.
Do stay here, so much more character than most hotels and the staff could not be nicer. We had a great time.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the front overlooking the park as the side rooms are a little dark

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Stayed 3 nights here. Found the place to be very clean and the staff provided amazing service. Concierge was very helpful and personable. Housekeeping staff very friendly. There's free wi-fi for an hour in the lobby.
Had the buffet breakfast one morning and the restaurant staff were awesome. Small portions of the food are prepared and when they are running low, the kitchen will prepare more before the food totally ran out. The used plates were cleared before I can back to the table with my next plate. Ordered an omlette and it was delicious.
A few issues I had. The first time I went to the pool area the spa was out of order. However came back the next day and it was fixed. The standard room I had was facing straight into a hallway of another hotel about 2 meter away. Had to keep the curtains closed the entire time. Was charged for breakfast for two mornings that I did not have, front desk corrected this on the spot.

This hotel is simply amazing. From its grand entrance to the amazing welcoming staff, this hotel has it all. From the minute you walk in, you feel welcome. Staff are happy and very accommodating.
The rooms are pleasantly designed and have ample room. They are superbly cleaned and everything works well. The mini bar is also very well stocked.
Ive stayed in 5 hotels in Adelaide over the past 5 weeks, the Sebel wins hands down in every aspect.

HIGHLY recommended. A huge pat on the back. The warm welcome sets the tone for a customers stay and you guys are perfect at it.
