The Sebel Quay West Brisbane
Ranked #70 of 169 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 15 February 2006

The Quay West Apartments. – Brisbane.

Beautifully positioned within walking distance to the heart of the city,Eagle Street Waterfront, cafes and restaurants. Our room 604 looks directly across the Botanical Gardens with sweeping views of the large lily pond and gorgeous assortment of trees.

The apartment is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen with stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and tea/ coffee facilities. Mini bar is also included with a good selection of beers and wine. The lounge/ dining area is reasonably sized with a mix match of furniture which doesn’t really blend with anything, TV and CD player. A spacious balcony which also leads into the bedroom. The bathroom is small and slightly old fashioned, it could do with an upgrade. Bedroom is spacious with comfortable bed and fluffy pillows with a separate TV. The laundry is situated off the hallway and has washing machine/clothes dryer/ironing board and iron.

Pros: Excellent position with lovely views, large open apartment with spacious balcony.
Internet connection, laundry service, free car parking, lovely shallow swimming pool with spa ,gym and sauna. Friendly staff and quick check in service.

Cons: We ordered in-house dining as late arrival and it truly was disgusting,The Quay West Platter with an assortment of dim sims,samosas, spring rolls and a burnt thai cake looked like it had been reheated five times, and the soba noodles a complete joke..two small mouthfuls for $18.00 AUD. I wanted to send it back. but hubby too hungry to wait consumed it. (yuk). I decided to order breakfast to see if they produced the same rubbish but it was to the standard you should expect, it was good. So tip DO NOT ORDER dinner!! There are heaps of good restaurants close by. Bathroom /furniture needs to be updated.

Recommendation: Yes, if you’re a space freak , as apartments are very comfortable and spacious., on our floor there are only 6 apartments. Would certainly suit families or travellers staying in Brisbane for more than a short stay. ( 4 Star)

This is the best hotel in Brisbane. It is in the downtown area, but faces the Botantical Gardens so it does not seem like it is in the city -- in some ways like 5th Avenue in NY. All rooms have a view of the gardens, and the rooms above the 7th floor (approximately - I was on the 8th floor and had a great view) can see the river and the cliffs of Kangaroo Point (that are lit up at night). It is an easy walk to the best shopping in Brisbane (Queens Plaza and the Myer Centre), to city offices, to QUT and to Southbank (just across the new Goodwill FootBridge). I strongly recommend visiting Southbank.
Each room is really a small apartment (bigger than my apartment in NYC!). There is a large bedroom with a Queen bed, a small kitchen, a dining area, a living room and a huge balcony with great views. There is a good desk to work on, with a comfortable leather desk chair. Also a laundry room in the room! All the rooms have recently been refurbished. The pool is beautiful -- outdoors and heated with a large sun area & a hot tub. It is full service hotel -- with room service and maid service. The desk staff are very friendly. I think that there is a carpark on site too. It is not a large hotel and so is friendly -- 6 rooms on each floor, and about 60 rooms for hotel guests and about 60 rooms for long term guests. Highly recommended!
