“Close to everything and nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

We stayed for a weekend and found the suites to be well appointed with all that we needed. It was great to be able to open the windows for fresh air, unlike a lot of places. The viaduct location is close to the city and very easy to get a ferry or other transport to other parts of the city or nearby islands..
There were some good touches like docks to play music from Iphones and all the laundry and kitchen equipment you need. Overall comfort is really good. It’s definitely worth getting the waterfront rooms as the front of the hotel (when we were there) has a view of,well, nothing. Actually it was a car park and construction site.
Lots of choices for food nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms looking over the marina are a lot nicer, but they do charge considerably more for them.

I have stayed at the Sebel Suites about 4 times in the past two years. It has become my husband and I's choice of an inner city hotel if we are going to have a little city getaway or celebrate an event. The location is fantastic and we really enjoy sitting out on the balcony overlooking the viaduct with a bottle of wine (or two!) taking in the views and people watching. its a great place to stay at if you have an event in the city or want to go out and party the night away without worrying how to get home. We always book the marina deluxe suite and have managed to get the same room every single time! Over the years the apartment is starting to show signs of wear and tear and it could do with a bit of a tidy up, but I still feel its great value for money and love the kitchen facilities, balcony etc. Service is always prompt. The in-room dining is always fantastic, prompt and great value for money (particularity as it comes from the local viaduct restaurants). Have never had any problems with noise from the viaduct if all doors are shut. We really enjoy our time at the Sebel and would definitely stay there again.

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
