    Superb

    The staff were extremely helpful. Service was quick and easy. The room was as I requested which is very pleasing. People were noticeably trying hard to please at this Hotel and genuinely polite. This alone makes the stay just that more enjoyable. Thank you.

    The cleanliness of the hotel and the king size bed made for a very comfortable stay.

    Fabulous

    Convenient location, comfortable room friendly staff.

    I would have liked to use the swimming pool but it was closed for maintenance for the two days we were there. Got parked in the morning we were leaving, and staff had difficulty locating the offending cars keys, but were very courteous and apologetic.

    convenient to the city for access to entertainment booked

    My booking clearly stated the room price of $438 for 3 people- being the reason I chose it above others that were dearer. The booking sheet clearly states the booking is for three people and extra will be charged for additional beds. As we did not need 4 beds one would assume this did not refer to my booking. However when I checked in I was charged an additional $90 to cover the extra person for the two nights. Clearly this was unexpected and has left an otherwise unpleasant memory of a great stay.

    Very good

    Close to the Sydney Football Stadium

    The fact that when I arrived, they had no idea who I was as they had no record of my reservation through Booked.net. Although the hotel was almost fully booked, they luckily were able to find a free room.

    THis visit was not as good as my last 5 visits, The Seble really needs to do some work on maintanence and the comfort of beds, joining 2 single beds to get a double is not good enought when the beds dont join well. Sleep quality very poor changed rooms 3 times on my first night, due to air con noise and broken bed in the second room. Unfortunately the first night was a disaster as l finally fell asleep at 4am in the morning. Will not recommend The Seble again, l wish l had stuck to my booking with the Merriton on Campbell Street.

    Beds, lack of care from staff, they changed my room 3 times and the beds very uncomfortable.

    Very good

    Good location - walking distance to loads of attractions & great eating places

    Unfortunately - due to close proximity to main roads it was very noisy. Also had several quite noisy guests coming/going during the small hours.

    Instead of a double bed, they simply put two single beds together and threw a double blanket over it

    Very good location

    It is a bit dated. Long time since they spent any money on rooms. Halls and rooms smelt old and musty. when you turn on tv the default volume is ridicluously high hopeless water pressure in shower. there are much better hotels for the price but this location suits us best
