“A beautiful hotel in a great position”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Outstanding service from the Sebel hotel staff always with a smile, a beautifully decorated and comfortable room, complimentary drinks and live music at the waterfront bar and a yummy breakfast made our stay here a memorable one. Sebel Pier One is positioned perfectly to enjoy the best of the Sydney waterfront with easy access to everything this great city has to offer. We enjoyed strolling around Dawes Point, The Rocks, Circular Quay to the Opera House during Sydney Festival during January. For those who love a hotel that is modern, vibrant with a quirky historic edge to it, Sebel Pier One is perfect.

At the end of some nine weeks in New Zealand and Australia we decided to spend two nights at the Sebel Pier for two reasons. Firstly we were booked on the Bridge Climb for a 9.30 start and secondly it was my 60th birthday too!

It was a great choice and although we didn't eat there apart from one breakfast [which was accessible, varied and filling from the selection] the views out over the water both during the day and at night were wonderful. Reception were great as were all the staff we met during our brief two night stay and it was great place to walk back to along the harbourside after my birthday meal in Darling Harbour.

The rooms were well appointed as was the bathroom and it really was a perfect choice for location, birthday celebrations, bridge climbing [a short walk away from the centre] and comfort. It seemed a rather good choice for us compared to the rather more expensive one just around the corner too!

Room Tip: Just ask for a view of the water!

Stayed at the Sebel Pier One on the 11.1.13, first they didn't have my booking, that took time to work out, then the air con died at around 8pm that night, our room temp was showing 30 degrees had no sleep, did not use the the late check out as the room was to hot to be in, left a bad impression of the hotel and ruined out Christmas present to ourselves

Booked a welsh bay suite as was a special night for us, was ok, but no telescope in room like in the pictures on their website even after requested, requested a daybed but was told those with the day bed were already taken. Had high expectations of a nice view as per the high price of this suite but you could only see the view of the bay if you we're standing up very close to the windows.! You could not see any view at all no matter where you sat in the room because the windows are to high and I am 6.1ft tall. Extremely let down.
Also requested a week earlier via email a stand up fan and a quiet room.
They did not have a stand up fan for us or the request. But they did manage to source a desk fan for us. Room was right above the bar area and at 10:30 at night was still very noisy.
Room was very warm and would not cool down past 27deg even after having aircon checked and after had been running for a long time till 10:30 at night. So we had to move rooms as they could not do anything about it. So we were down graded to a normal room right at the other end of the hotel as their we're no more suites available. The room was much more cooler.
So much for the special night we have had planned their, extremely let down.
They did throw in a free breakfast in the morning for us, but this hardly made up for this bad experience. The night manager was good though was very apologetic and tried to help.

What a great hotel. Within easy walking distance to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and the City.
Staff and amenities were absolutely first class. Breakfast was amazing. The reception staff and the consierge desk were helpful, quick and extremely friendly. We would not hesitate to stay there again. Actually looking forward to it.

Room Tip: Room was overlooking the road. No noise what so ever.

The moment we arrived in our car we where looked after and made to feel welcome.Our car was parked for the duration of our stay as this location is close to all modes of transport wherever you need to get to in Sydney. Our room was a kingsize waterveiw room which was lovely and had a terrific view of the water. What I find amazing is how quiet the hotel is both in your room and while enjoying a drink on the pier.
All the sights of Sydney are easily accessed by either walking by ferry or by train.
The bar service and food was very enjoyable and the breakfast was very nice. Really, for a quiet weekend in the city, there is no need to leave the hotel apart from taking a stroll around the key. I found the staff to be extremely polite and easy going and nothing was too much for them.
A very enjoyable stay and we will definitely stay again.
