At first I found this difficult to get to by public transport. On arrival the concierge was very helpful. Met with friends and stayed several hours. Room was large, furniture minimal. 1 table & two chairs. Coffee/tea were available though almost hidden and took some finding. Bathroom small but adequate. Room didn't have a view of the city or surrounds.

Clean rooms and facilities. A bit lacking in character but great value. Studio apartment is wonderfully spacious. Pool was lovely and great place to relax after a day at work. I didn't get to the gym but it seemed well frequented. Handy location!!

Booked this at the last moment and worked out to be excellent choice. Great room with plenty of room for working as well as relaxing. Cheap parking in the building was also very good. Close to a bunch of restaurants and cafes and easy access to the freeway into the City or if you are heading down to the Gold... More

I had a two night stay in a one bedroom apartment. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and with great facilities including stovetop, dishwasher, washing machine. It's a great place for those seeking to self-cater. The rooms was quiet - even being just above the lap pool and adjacent to the lift. Some have described the Sebel as "dated" and... More

As with others, I was expecting more from a Sebel site - other than for the nearby hospitals, there is nothing of interest to bring you here. And although I had an upgrade to an "apartment", it was quite ordinary and lacking in taste and style. For what it is and location, don't think it offers value. A very ordinary... More

Business trip. Staff were very nice. But the room I was given had an odour that I found sickening - it was on the sunward side. I went back to the check-in and asked for the smell to be reviewed. Instead, the attendant immediately moved me to an upgraded deluxe room which was not necessary but appreciated. However, the "deluxe"... More

Stayed for one night on a business trip in October, 2016. I chose The Sebel because of its location, but also reputation for the brand. It's surrounded by hospitals and medical clinics which says to me that the majority of their visitors do not stay for fun. It seems this particular site is a recent acquisition/partnership as the branding was... More

I made a mistake with my booking date with booking.com. Called the hotel who quickly made the change, but cost an extra $140 to have adjoining rooms for three adults, baby and 4 year old. Well placed for a dash to children's hospital, three minutes if you leg it.the only reason we booked for location. Rooms pretty clean. Poor selection... More

Was a bit surprised when I checked in at Sebel South as I imagined it to be a business hotel / apartment like the Sebel in downtown Brisbane. This place I guess mainly caters to the Mater hospital nearby and could be frequented for longer stays. The staff were very friendly though. However the lady at the reception informed me... More
