“Great Stay!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Stay here for 5 nights, everything was great, nice modern decor, everything supplied in the little kitchenette. Bed was very comfy! Great location close to bars and restaurants and close to tram stops to catch the city cirlce straight into the city. Would defiantly stay again :)

Its the unexpected extra's you find in the room which impressed us. The washing machine and dryer, the brilliantly designed bathroom, the ability to close the bed room off from the lounge, the quality furnishings and the gorgeous complimentary Australian designed and owned Appelles Apothecary personal products. Lovely. We only wish we had a late checkout !!

We stayed at the Sebel Docklands because we couldn't get anything reasonably priced closer to town that weekend. It turned out being a very pleasant surprise; this is an excellent property. Our one-bedroom apartment was super well appointed, and everything seemed brand new. You could easily cook a full meal in the kitchenette. The free deterrent for the washing machine was a nice touch, and very welcome.
There is no cafe, bar or restaurant in the hotel, but there are plenty of each just a short walk away. A little supermarket seemed to be about to open right downstairs, and there is an IGA supermarket a block away already.
We would certainly come back again.

Hi Back_to_Sandringham,

Thank you for your feedback. I'm delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, and hopefully from reading your review - the docklands will be your place of choice for future Melbourne visits. We are ideally located just outside the CBD, but with free and ready access to the city centre on the #35 city circle tram.

I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment facilities - the apartments full kitchen is frequently commended by our guests. The Urban Hub convenience store directly opposite the hotel is also opening this week which is great news.

We hope to see you back with us again soon.

Kind regards,
Antony

Recently I stayed here to attend a conference. The one bedroom apartment was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and accommodating to my needs? The hotel is close to trams and being on Docklands great access to restaurants, cafés etc.

We stayed at Sebel Docklands for 3 nights. On arrival we received a complimentary upgrade to a one bedroom apartment which was fantastic. Fully equipped kitchen, dining area, large bathroom, and one of the most comfortable beds ever. Was in a great location for us working in Docklands, however would be an easy commute to the CBD with trams running meters away. Caught the skybus from the airport and only a 10 min walk from Southern Cross. Only downside was no room service, but supermarket and restaurants right nearby. Hotel staff were lovely and will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here last weekend. Very modern hotel. Ideal for a week's stay. Fully equipped kitchen, even with a full oven and stove top. Washing machine and dryer hidden away in bathroom. Stunning spotlight lamp on tripod, gorgeous pool area with water running down the window. Lovely breakfast at nearby cafe included. Close to Etihad Stadium and the Melbourne Star - tickets included for the wheel too. Nice balcony, comfy bed and loved the pillows. Loved the hotel. Highly recommend for a longer stay, so you can cook for yourself with essentials from local Supermarket close by.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had recently been renovated to a high standard. Well appointed kitchen and spacious lounge, large bathroom with good shower.
The one minor downside was he bedroom was a tight squeeze with a queen bed, and the tv on the wall in the bedroom impacting on space to get past the bed.

Fantastic location next to a range of restaurants. Breakfast was included in our rate and this is provided at one of the local restaurants - a short 2 minute walk to Cargo which is right on the water- you can choose anything from the breakfast menu along with 2 drinks(e.g juice and coffee).
Also within 5 mins walk is Harbourtown - an outlet/clearance shopping mall, and the big ferris wheel(cant remember what it is called) which give great views of the city. The free city circle tram comes into Docklands as well which is a useful way to get from one end of the CBD to the other.
