We stayed for 4 nights for a short break. It is a 5 star hotel and everything by way of service, rooms, facilities etc are truly 5 star. We had breakfast in the lobby lounge and it was fine with some exotic fruits and juices that we have not uncounted before. You get egg dishes individually cooked to your liking and my wife's eggs benedict we so delightful she went back for seconds (or was it thirds!). Restaurant staff were efficient and friendly and did engage in conversation that showed they really cared.
However there was something lacking from this stay that didn't give us a wow factor. Whilst the rooms were nice and large and tastefully furnished I think it was the total lack of any view at all that let us down. This was probably accentuated by the fact we had a longish stay and this would/may not have been an issue for short stays. I find even a view of passing traffic can be entertaining, but it appears only the front rooms of this narrow building score a view of any sorts.
For a short stay or business stay I would have no issue recommending the Sebel.
