“Great location, great views”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for a night in a one bedroom apartment on the 8th floor. The apartment was very modern with all facilities. The balcony had great views of the ocean, and the pools and spas were excellent.

Close to a bottle shop and a supermarket, plenty of restaurants nearby.

Only disappointment was that there was no ice blocks in the rooms for drinks, the containers were empty, and the hotel does not even have an ice machine! We had to buy a bag of ice from the bottle shop to have our scotch and coke. Something little which was very annoying. Otherwise had a lovely time and would return again.

Like others were impressed with the view and the food at Gluten free For Me, especially as my wife is gluten intolerant, I was impressed as well.
The room was showing signs of wear but otherwise plesant.
My problem was we were unable to sit on the balcony to enjoy the view due to the excessively loud traffic noise. There is a set of traffic lights on the main road immediately outside the complex and a lot of very loud cars and motor cycles raced off from the lights all day and night, at night the balcony doors had to be kept closed. Emergency vehicles were very loud also. The road outside is a main 4 lane road.

Room Tip: Ensure that your room will have a view when booking

Hello Jux04

Thank you for your review, yes we are in a very special location that can from time be challenged by the traffic, however this can sometimes we overlooked when we get the opportunity of seeing the whales from the apartment balconies. A liitle hidden tressure for Sebel Maroochydore.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you back.

I stayed over the weekend and on check in Robyn at reception was just wonderful.

We stayed in a penthouse apartment with a roof terrace. It has a great BBQ area and our own spa on the rooftop looking over the beach!

The apartments are so spacious and the beds were great, definitely worth the upgrade to the roof terrace!

Added breakfast on when I booked ($25), thought it was a hotel breakfast but it was for the Gluten Free cafe around the corner with severely limited options (you get a muesli, a coffee, plus a choice of bacon and eggs, pancakes something else standard which I can't quite remember). There's a massive sign when you get there that the pancakes are $10.80, so $25 does not cut it. Plus the guy that runs the cafe wouldn't let us just get a normal breakfast off the menu, skip the muesli so he would still be in front with the $25 charge, so we just cancelled the breakfast. The girl on in the morning (manager) was a little rude when we asked to cancel the breakfast, though she improved later.

I understand the hotel's thinking in that they have to have a breakfast option, though this left a sour taste just when you're about to leave which is not ideal.

Regardless of this, I would book this hotel again in a heartbeat because of the high quality room and view.

Room Tip: 90% sure we had room 1410 and it was brilliant (rooftop terrace with spa).

Hello Susannah83

Thank you for your review, and would certainly agree Robyn is wonderful and very good at looking after our guests.

I'm however disappointed to read that your breakfast didn't meet your expectations and certainly would like to apologise, we often receive positive feedback with GFFM. I also understand when you have anticipated breakfast you may of expected the Hotel to have a buffet breakfast. I have certainly made note of your concern and would be delighted if you could personally ask for myself when you next return to Sebel Maroochydore.

Once again thank you.

The Sebel Maroochydore is located just across the road from the beach on Aerodrome Rd. Free secure undercover parking is available which is always a good start.

The hotel itself faces north and only the rooms on the first few floors would not have a view of the ocean. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment which was huge. From what we could see the room apartment actually had two rooms but the other had been locked up so it could not be used. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, minus the food to cook up a storm. The bathroom was large with duel sinks and a separate shower and spa bath. The only downside to the room was the bed, it felt small and was too hard for my liking. Each apartment has a balcony with nice views to the beach, Aerodrome rd is pretty busy and the traffic noise is noticeable. The outdoor pool is ok for a swim although it could easily get crowded during peak periods. There are a few take away and restaurant options within walking distance, we would highly recommend the Thai restaurant just up the road across from Sizzler, high quality authentic dishes.

The beach is a quick stroll across the road and a patrolled section is about 5 minutes walk heading north up the beach.

All up the Sebel is a good choice in Maroochydore. It would be perfect for a short stay with family or friends.

Very central location with fantastic views of the coast in both directions. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is secure underground parking. No restaurant but plenty of choices within walking distance. The best value eatery is the local Surf Club.
