« Okay room in an average hotel, but a really poor breakfast »

My room was nice and clean, well laid out - the bed wasn't the most comfortable ever, but good enough. The hotel reception & welcome were a bit messy but good welcoming service. The hotel location isn't the greatest - docklands lacks the vibrant culture of other areas around Melbourne CBD - but it is quieter which is a plus. The breakfast from the cafe attached to the hotel was poor and service okay at best, although it's hard to beat for value if you get the Accor $1 breakfast offer.

« Disappointed Stay »

The location and reception staff (Callan & Iris) were very good. But the room was not clean. We had to get the cleaner in to clean the shower, doors, bathroom and mop the floors as they were dirty. The washing machine was filthy and we had to be cleaned. The bed had coffee stains and we had to replace the dooner and pillow covers as they were dirty and marked. The owner left his dirty mop in the laundry. Not good enough for a 4 start apartment

After an initial hic up with our room which was sorted out very quickly and professionally we could not fault the Sebel. Great views and check in staff were very helpful and always had a smile to greet us. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend.

« Long weekend »

We had a lovely weekend at the Sebal Docklands. Our appartment was perfect for the 5 adults that came along on this trip. Highlight was the lovely lady that checked us in early after a late night flight from Perth. Our only dissapointment was with the cafe we had breakfast in our orders were mixed up everyday and often came out under cooked... but the property and hotel are wonderful

« Be careful! »

This "hotel" is spread across differing apartment blocks which can cause issues. I recently had to battle traffic for 20 minutes due to traffic after checking in and being told i needed to park in a differing building. Upon trying to get into my room i was again told i was in a differing building and then upon checkout i was told i would need to go back, get my car out of the car park and return to reception as i needed the key to exit the car park! Disaster really and a manager that seemed to not really care,

« Melbourne Sebel Residences »

The accommodation was very good but we couldn't find instructions on how to use the washing machine/dryer or the dishwasher, which would have been nice. The cooking pans were very very small to cook for 4 people so we ate out every night. but overall the accommodations was very good.

« Good accomodation in Docklands »

Docklands is a great place to stay in Melbourne - a quiet spot for accomodation but close to everything on a high frequency tram route. And the Sebel Residences provide good accommodation to fit in a family with apartment features including a kitchen and laundry.

« Adequate »

Property was just adequate, We had apartment 1215 in Marmion. Main bedroom had sheer blinds, so light would shine through all night making it hard to sleep. Gas cooktop.didnt work. After enquiring at reception, several hours later, the gas was switched on. Carpet from lift to apartment was appalling. Made it very hard to wheel luggage. Top rack of dishwasher kept collapsing as rollers seemed to be missing. No breakfast bowls, just very large noodle bowls. A bit “faulty towers”. Location was great and staff very friendly..

« Great Location »

Good accommodation just on the edge of the city. My family had a very good stay here with a view over the water and the city. The only let down was there was a broken chair on the balcony that almost caused an injury. This was reported immediately and we were informed it would be replaced straight away. This did not occur. The cleanliness of the apartment was very good except for the balcony which was dirty and the table had dry liquid which had been spilt on it.

« Fantastic location »

Had a lovely stay at the Sebel Residences with great views from the lounge and bedroom. the only thing that let it down was the cleanliness. Stained furniture,curtains and cushions, food marks in the fridge and the balcony was so dirty I did not go out on it. ALSO sticky finger marks on the ranch slider door, glass table and coffee table. Staff were nice but will not return unless the cleanliness improves

« Customer Service & Apartment was terrible »

I have sent the email on tuesday 5th March about experience I went through, but I still haven't got the reply yet. I had bad experience, Customer service was terrible, even I'm Gold member. Apartment - No aircon in the room, only in living room, so I had to sleep in living room on sofa.

« Fantastic for a group visit »

Stayed for 3 nights with 5 friends in a 3-bedroom apartment. The location, amenities and service absolutely exceeded our expectations, especially given the reasonable price. Location - brilliant 180 views of the waterfront plus the Melbourne Star, captivating by day and magical at night. Close to IGA, Thirsty Camel and Celebrations wine stores for self-catering. Lots of great restaurant choices along the Promenade offering a variety of cuisines, water views, and reasonable prices. Conveniently placed close to 2 free-tram stops. The tram took us to the gate of the Aust Open for free, and the tram was packed but we had seats because we got on at the start of the line (a real bonus because a few stops along, disappointed tennis fans were stuck on platforms due to the trams being full). Amenities - Not brand new, but very spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation. We were very impressed with the value for money. All beds were super comfy, bathrooms very clean, kitchen well equipped and all in working order. Good free wifi (all 6 people using it with no problems). Tennis court, indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi and gym all looked great, but we didn't end up using them as we spent long days at the Aust Open.Service - very attentive and friendly reception staff from check-in through to departure. Always happy and smiling. Helped us with advice on transport to AO. We pointed out that the kitchen sink wouldn't hold water because the plug wasn't a good fit. When we returned from our day's activities there was a new plug and note sitting on the kitchen bench. Amazingly prompt response.Extras - we had a delicious breakfast each morning at The Capri Cafe (part of the Hotel and Apartment complex). It was a very short walk from our apartment building. The food and service were great and we had lovely views of the waterfront. A really fun start to the day. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear P6692UAelizabethm, Thank you for taking the time to provide your amazing review, I’m so happy to hear that yourself and your 5 friends enjoyed your stay within one of our amazing three-bedroom apartments. It certainly does sound like you made the most of every minute while you were in Melbourne for the tennis, and also great to know that the apartment inclusions including WIFI assisted during your relaxing down time. I apologise for any inconvenience regarding the kitchen sink plug, but also pleasing that our team acted so quickly to rectify the issue for you and your guests. In addition, thank you for recognising our cafe and your breakfast experience, the service team and chefs always love receiving such positive comments! We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future to Sebel Residences Docklands and thank you again for sharing your feedback. Kind regards, Cameron Baker General Manager

« Melbourne Sojourn »

With another appointment in Melbourne requiring us to stay a couple of nights we often stay at the Sebel Residences in Docklands. This time we were in the Condor apartments and the room was great. Fantastic view down Victoria Harbour and the waterfront was alive with activity. A couple of "mega yachts "in harbour for the tennis I presume added to the attraction. The room had everything needed for a relaxing retreat.

« Unenjoyable stay »

We stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment. I wasn't aware that the Sebel Residences was split over several buildings in the Docklands. We were placed in an apartment in the Promenade building which was a few minutes walk from the Sebel Docklands where we checked in. The room was nice the only thing I didn't like was that there were no windows in the bedroom. I thought the bedroom would be like the photo on the website which had large bedroom windows. It was also inconvenient to walk down the road each morning to get breakfast as we had booked a bed and breakfast package. The next day I spoke to the reception about the windows and they were very helpful and we moved to an apartment in the Condor building. The Condor apartment was smelly, I had to buy an air diffuser to disguise it. The air conditioner was very noisy. One of the windows in the lounge was broken so that the window opened wide enough to climb out, we were on the 13th floor. I didn’t feel this was acceptable with a child in the room. I realise the risk was low but I would have preferred it to be zero especially when the broken window was next to the sofa and I twice caught my son standing on the sofa leaning on the broken window (it was closed at the time). I told the reception about the window and I was told it would be fixed but it wasn’t. The reception staff working the day shift were much more helpful than the evening shift. One morning when we were going to breakfast someone had urinated in the lift. I was also unhappy that a phone charger and my son’s shoes which were left in our first room were never returned. How could they have gone missing? Also the reception staff never got back to me about this even after my second enquiry when I was told they would bring them straight up to our room or I would be called back. Neither happened and I eventually came to reception to be told that they couldn’t be found. I'm really not one to complain and I can’t remember ever staying in another hotel that I felt the need to complain. I wouldn’t consider staying at the Sebel Residences when I am next in Melbourne.

« Disappointing Experience »

My wife and l decided to take our family to Melbourne, for a night away prior to Xmas. We were taking the kids to a show at the kids Theatre and as a Gold Accor member received a call the night prior asking if we had any specific requests or requirements. We are a very simple low maintenance family however did ask for an early check in if possible so we could drop our bags in our room and drop the car prior to the show. (We travel 2 hours to Melbourne) We were advised this was possible and would be ready between 12 and 1pm.We arrived the following day and on attempting to check in couldn't access our room as it had been given to another family, we were told we would be reallocated to another room and given the room number which would make it easier with the young kids as we could access the pool and facilities from within the same building rather than having to walk down the street which was the main reason we chose the Sebel rather than staying at the Sofitel as l usually do, however the room wouldn't be ready until after the show. We left our bags and headed out. On our arrival back after the show we were given yet another room allocation which meant we had to walk down the open street, to and from our room as well as to the pool not ideal with a 8,6 and 3yr old. This was obviously a change from our prior discussion with staff some of who apologized profusely and literally followed us apologizing for the stuff around.When getting to our room there was marks all over the walls, the ironing board didn't work (which l use often while travelling) there was no cloth or washing equipment to even wipe down the table or bench. Even locking the door was a mission as it doesn't lock from the inside.To top it off after all the stuff around you would think the welcome card would have the correct name on it however was still in the previous persons name, l'm assuming it was the person who originally took our room. Attention to detail obviously doesn't rate highly.Like l mentioned at the top we are simple people and don't expect too much however when paying good money ($400 plus) for a room for a night l do expect a little better than we received and based on the experience l'll be sticking with the Sofitel from now on.I also assume that staff were well aware of what went on as apart from 1 staff member who did her very best on check in to correct the error we were not asked once how our stay was etc when checking out which is unusual.

Hotel was a good, rooms abit run down but still livable. The onsite Cafe is a disaster, we had breakfast paid for the whole week but decided to eat else where after the second day due to the poor service.
