The rooms are lovely, even though the one bedroom does not totally enclose. Very comfortable furnishings. Lovely big bed and bath. Did not receive a particular tv channel that was required for a number of shows, so a member of staff showed me to another room before checking, as the same thing applied here. The young man was very pleasant, but was the only staff member on call for the whole place, including checking guests in and out, and coping with any problems, as well as answering all calls! Was told he had complained to management a number of times about this problem, but that they were cutting costs since Accor had taken over the hotel management.

Was given access to free movies, at my suggestion not his, but gratefully accepted.

Thankyou cary7 for taking the time to provide some feedback on your recent visit.
I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
In regards to staffing, Accor has managed this propery for 18 months now with the same staff including myself that operated the hotel prior to this.
We are a small hotel of 51 rooms and while we do try and have adequate coverage at all times and some of those may be busier then usual, we have not cut back any at all.
As Sunday nights are our quietest, the restaurant is closed so room service is taken to the rooms by our front office team. Over the past two weeks we have noted some changes on this night and have made the required changes.
We do try and deliver a very high level of service as you can see by many other comments posted here as this is the key to our industry.
I hope you have the chance to visit again. Please feel free in contacting myself at the hotel should you have any further queries.
Kind Regards

The staff were outstanding at reception and in the restaurant.

The rooms were well equipped and the location is fantastic!

We had a 4 month old traveling with us and they were very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again when in Launceston!

The staff at reception were fantastic when we arrived. They booked us into a great restaurant for lunch and dinner. They gave us suggestions for walks and other activities in the area.

The bed and pillows were really comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

My son and I had 2 nights at the Sebel when in Launceston and were very happy with our choice.

The Hotel is only a short walk to the main town area and even shorter to the marina area.

The room was a one bedroom suite which I assume was the regular room .... it was very spacious with a separated bedroom and a small kitchenette.

We had breakfast and dinner in the Hotel restaurant on one morning and one evening. Both meals were good and reasonably priced.

Highly recommended should you be visiting Launceston.

We stayed in one of the "Superior Suites" which was a large two bedroom suite and definitely value for money. We were on the first floor facing a road that had regular bus traffic going by, but not enough to disturb you. The staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. Good location to the nearby restaurants on the banks of the Tamar River, about a 5- 10 minute stroll and a 10 minute stroll into town.

Room Tip: Car Parking offered by the hotel is of a tight nature, so if you have a large car take note. The re...
