“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

This gorgeous hotel is in a great location and is very luxurious. Our room was so nice - clean, large, great balcony, nice bathroom, great service, and comfortable bed. The views are ok, but who cares, the hotel is awesome. They also have nice robes you can wear while you're there.

We went to their seafood buffet which had a chocolate buffet bar and it was really nice. For $65, you get a great variety of food. It's not like an American buffet with tons of average food, the focus is on quality more than quantity.

The only negative was that they charged $3 to make a toll free call! Ridiculous.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our 5 week adventure exploring East Coast Australia...en-route our accommodation had been varied but to a consistently good standard....The Sebel Cairns was a real treat....just beautiful!! Staff were very friendly and always helpful.....Concierge gave us a map and directions to explore the area. Excellent location for the nearby shops/ bars/ restaurants. We enjoyed a long walk by the Marina and along The Esplanade.....very modern and clean! Our room on 10th floor was very clean and comfortable with great views of Cairns...enjoyed watching RCI Rhapsody of the Seas...that really was a big boat! Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent and enjoyed the Lobby Bar in the evening!! Wish we were still there.... LOVED OUR STAY!!!

Room Tip: Harbour view room was nice and sunny.........the area was surprisingly quiet at all times!!

The sebel is in a good location , close to the waterfront, shops and restaurants. The building looks a little tired in places. Our room on the 3 rd floor was opposite a very noisy Casino at night. The room was spacious and clean. The large bed was very comfortable but the room did not smell as fresh as it should, not sure why . The buffet breakfast was delicous and the pool area was nice . The lobby looks very impressive

Room Tip: Avoid a low room at the front of hotel ,opposite noisy Casino.

We stayed at The Sebel Cairns for a minication the weekend before Easter. We loved it! The hotel was beautiful and has a wonderful inviting ambience. The staff from the concierge, to the front desk, restaurant and housekeeping were all professional and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great location with easy walking to shopping, eating places, parks and gardens and the lovely waterfront.The room was perfect for our needs, very nice facilities and very clean. We would highly recommend The Sebel Cairns and are planning our next trip very soon.

Room Tip: We were fortunate to have a room on the top floor. The view was terrific and it was lovely and quiet...

Stayed here for the weekend with my boyfriend to get away from Sydney for two nights - Fri & Sat. It is very nice hotel but not amazing. The building is old but very clean and they have clearly been constantly putting money into it.

In the hotel lobby you can have 'high tea' which looks so nice and would be lovely if you were with a group of girls.

The staff are pleasant. The travel desk staff are helpful in organising trips/tours.

Main things that annoyed me was the beds in the twin rooms are too small and if you want to watch anything on the tv you have to pay. The mini bar is well stocked and not too expensive. We ordered room service one night and the food was good.

The pool area is really nice, would be a lovely place to have a reception for an event. The hotel even provide seperate towels for you to use while you are at the pool rather than bringing the room towels down.

The location is great. Perfect infact. Walking distance from everything.

What a great place to stay with excellent staff. Everything was great from the quick smooth check in and out to the concierge looking after us very well, along with any staff we ran into . The barman in the lobby bar was great and this is a very relaxing area to unwind . The pool area is great with lots of seating a lovely pool . l stayed on the 15th floor with a great view. The rooms were very quiet and l didnt hear anyone else at all during my stay . The breakfast in Cocos was also great with a good range and a chef cooking your other requirements Lovely charm and atmosphere here and l cant wait to stay again

Ended up our road trip at the Sebel in Cairns. We needed a bit of comfort after all the driving and we found it here. Nice hotel, well situated, walking distance from the seafront walk and shops and restaurants. Big and airy room, nice balcony with a view on the river and ocean. Comfy beds, big bathroom. Nothing to complain about. Service was good too. The concierge desk was also helpful but try to decide and make some research beforehand... His advices might not always suit your needs. Would definitely stay there again though the Shangri-La was looking nice too from our balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with balcony and ocean view.
