“Great value and very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

We enjoyed a "romantic winter warmer package" at the Sebel last weekend. It was terrific value. The hotel is very charming. The room was very inviting and the bed was super-comfortable. The area is very special as you are in the city but it is so peaceful near the wharf. There are many restaurants to choose from and the rocks and circular quay is just a short walk away. The service was friendly and very welcoming. We will be staying here afain to celebrate our anniversary.

Recently we flew to Sydney with my elderly parents-in-law for a 2 night stay at this hotel. We were impressed by all aspects of this stay. Great room with fabulous views, excellent service by the friendly and efficient staff, reasonably priced and excellent lunch and dinner menus. The location is perfect for seeing all the sights and also for walking or sitting and watching the amazing harbour life. All four of us are well travelled and rate thjis experience right up with accommodation in Paris, London etc. Especially loved the fabulous, comfortable beds. we will definitely be back.

Good location for walking around the harbour to the opera house, nice modern clean rooms, and for a bit of novelty, a transparent floor in part of the lobby so one can see the water below. Had the weather cooperated it would have been much more enjoyable, however there were no amenities on site. Although the hotel lent out umbrellas, walking around in the cold rain got old quickly. Would not recommend if traveling with children. The buffet breakfast was ok but nothing special.

We recently stayed three nights at the Sebel Pier One for a combined business and pleasure trip. The view from the Harbour View room was spectacular. The service first class and staff were extremely helpful. The hotel is in a great area with the city only a short walk away. The locational also provides several options for scenic running routes as well as a few challenging stairways if you are so inclined. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Harbour View

We had a great view from our hotel room straight out onto the water at Walsh Bay. It was really nice to wake up and see the ferries and other boats going past. I was a little wary before we arrived after a reviewer on the previous page said they had poor service after booking their stay through Travelzoo but this wasnt the case for us as all the staff were professional but friendly. There was some noise at our end of the hotel after about 7.30-8.00 due to renovations but it didn't affect our stay. The breakfast buffet was extensive and had quality foods, probably the best ive seen. Its in a great location near circular quay but since its a 5min walk up and over the edge of the 'rocks' area it also feels like a quiet spot you can escape back to.

Gorgeous property! Unique foyer with glass floor looking into Harbour ( kept daughters amused for ages!).

Great deck area on Harbour for coffee and/ or beer. Amazing passing view!

Bit of a walk into the rocks about 10 mins but lots to look at along the way.

Restaurant buffet breakfast good and dinner lovely

Rooms steal the show. Ours had a view of the Harbour bridge! Still lots of original features as location was old wool shed. White and clean and very welcoming. Comfy beds with beautiful linen

Perfect spot for leisure sydney weekend. Up there with my fav hotels!

We recently stayed for one night at the Sebel Pier One and it was lovely. The reason for the stay was we where going to see the Agatha Christies the Mousetrap play. The service we received was just wonderful, from the moment we walked in the door we where looked after by the staff. Check in was a breeze and we where directed to our room. The king room was awesome and had all the mod cons you could need, the bed was so comfortable I wanted to take it home. The bathroom was roomy enough for more than one to manouver around it. Although we didn't have view of the Harbour bridge , the view we had was just great as we sat on the bed and could see the sunset. Just a short walk down the pier and there was the famous Harbour bridge and across the harbour Luna Park.

The theatres are just a ten minute walk up the road and Circular quay is only a short walk away. The Sebel offers a bar and restaurant and now a gym.
I would recommend a stay here and will be looking forward to going back with hubby soon.
