The Sebel Auckland Viaduct Harbour
Ranked #17 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Very nice hotel, good view of the harbor; location is handy to restaurants. Rooms are spacious and it was very handy to have a washer & dryer. We found getting to the hotel a little tricky--we missed the turn into the hotel at first, then had a difficult time getting back. This was not the fault of the hotel, but the fault of the driver and navigator! Overall very nice.

The apartments face the marina we stayed in a queen marina and over all very happy with the experience. The room was large enough although well used the toilet vent was'nt working so clearing odors was difficult.
Make sure you are aware of all costs before signing in as once you have that's it.

Room Tip: They will price match and the queen room offers great veiws

I had to travel to Auckland and was dreading it, however now I am looking forward to going back.
The Sebel is right in the viaduct, such an awesome location. Fabulous restaurants are all within a a 2 min stroll.
I had a 1 bed suite which was great, plenty of space, sufficiently equipped kitchenette to get through breakfast and the bathroom had a separate shower and bath. I am heading back in July and the Sebel is already booked in.

The position on the harbour was perfect for getting around the harbour on the very efficient ferry system and also within easy walking of shops and parks.The rooms are modern and well equipped as suites with every plate glass and pan one could need and a very efficient washer and dryer.

The hotel is very nicely located on the harbor, with very beautiful views from the 2 balconies. However, the harbor is a very noisy place - so bring ear plugs (the windows are really well constructed to block off a lot of the noise - still, we were there around St Patrick's day, and it was very noisy all night).
Our package included breakfast - which was provided a a nice restaurant by the harbor - however, the staff seemed very confused by this and we got a different answer as to what was covered every time we asked (at the end, everything was covered..... which was nice)

Room Tip: If you want quiet, ask for a room away from harbor - however, you'll miss on a really nice view

We arrived in Aukland from a cruise the hotel was less than 5mins by taxi if we hadnt had our luggage with us we could have walked. The hotel overlooks the harbour, staff really friendly couldnt help you enough. Room excellent even had a washer and dryer so was able to get laundry done at no extra cost. Location excellent lovely bars overlooking harbour, the locals were so friendly and the food excellent, plenty of shops just off the red bus route for tours everything you need to get your holiday started. Really enjoyed our stay if i had known how beautiful Aukland was and how good the sebel suites were would definately stayed longer

This place is clean enough and the service, that is more or less restricted to the check-in desk, is OK too.

Our room overlooking the harbour was very noisy. There are lots of bars down there where people are yelling and generally getting boozed up. The windows are flimsy and the air conditioning ineffective. If you open the window for air, the noise is unacceptable.

You might as well go down there and join the party, which goes on to the early hours most nights.

Our room was a small suite, the sitting area was rather cramped.

Meals are served in a cafe that is just outside the hotel, by the waterfront. This proved to be a little better than others we tried in the area, but that's not saying much.

The Hotel facilities are basic by European standards, but somewhat better than many NZ places have to offer.

Room Tip: See if there is anything available that does not overlook the harbour, although traffic can be a pro...
