“Sebel Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

The Sebel Hotel in Parramatta is coveniently located on Church Street. There are numerous bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance. The River Cat water taxi is also nearby and travels to the Circular Quay in Sydney Harbor. The rooms are clean and the gymnasium is adequate.

nice medium sized hotel well located and well run.. seems to attract o/s travels which is odd being along way out of Sydney CBD. you will enjoy a pleasant stay here with plenty of local restaurants and a park across the road. Church street can be noisy and pool deck needs a refresh.

Room Tip: choose a high floor towards the rear

We have stayed here 4 times over the last 6 years. As we have relatives in paramatta, this seems to be an ideal location. The first 2 times was great. Location on church street meant eating out was spoilt for choice.


The last 2 times was bitterly disappointed. The hotel has been reburished. The hotel itself is nice but the price was ridiculously expensive for the location is in the west suburbs. The services was very lacking. Parking was no longer free. Breakfast was not included. We had minor complaints which at the time "seemed" to be resolved by the duty manager but upon check out this was not the case. The front desk reception was rude and didnt care to listen to our explanation. We had to ask to speak to the duty manager and luckily the same duty manager was on and it was resolved quickly.

We still need accommodation yearly in Sydney. But will no longer be staying here.

Church street IMO has deteriorated alot and has become quiet unsafe. During our last visit while dining on church street we witnessed gang violence on the street.

Isn't it interesting that the absence of anything to complain about often goes unnoticed. We humans tend to notice and in fact remember a motel, trip or holiday when things happen, good or bad.
I stayed in Sebel Parramatta recently and must say that while it was not an outstanding Motel I had nothing to complain about. It is central to everything. The room was good. The beds, bathroom, pillows, tv, media, etc were all first class. Yet everything was simple and unpretentious.
Well done Sebel.

Close walking distance to great cafes, restaurants and bars, only a dash further for retail therapy!!
The eateries in Church Street offer a fabulous selection of cuisines - Italian, Greek, Cuban, Turkish. We had breakfast each day away from the hotel. Hotel is across the road from Riverside Theatre which was perfect for our needs.10 minutes walk to the River Cat which runs hourly express service to Circular Quay (Sydney CBD), takes about 50 minutes and tickets about $6 one way. Very pleasant way to travel. The hotel itself can be noisy with traffic and late night revellers (we were on the 10th floor and still heard it), but it wasn't enough to put us off our stay. Note: Our floor was 90% booked by an overnight tour group, who had no respect for others on the floor... late nite conversations, doors slamming and early morning departure ruccus!! Aside from our bad luck for one night (!) the rooms are clean, the king size bed heaven, bathroom suits the purpose. Our 3 nites rate was much cheaper on 'alternate' websites. Not sure I could justify the full rate.Staff were friendly and helpful, check-in and check-out was quick and courteous. Chose this hotel purely for its convenient location to theatre, restaurants and transport.

Room Tip: Request high floors! Request king room (more space)

First and last time I will stay here I was put on the first floor right next door to the function rooms and was blasted by noise all night.
The price for the rooms is over inflated and there is better value to be had in Parramatta

I've stayed at The Sebel, Parramatta a number of times in recent years and, without doubt, the service has picked up dramatically. I stayed there a couple of weeks ago and can't wait to get back there, it's improved that much. Very handy two minute walk to Crinitis Restaurant in Church St, which is ALWAYS a brilliant meal and service.

Room Tip: go for a high room at the back of the hotel for quietness
