We booked a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights. We were quite disappointed after the first night. The air-con did not work properly in the room and kept turning off. The bedroom was like a sauna, the bed felt like springs going into our backs and there were yellow stains on the doona/sheets. We also found dirty linen in the washing machine. The bin drawer in the kitchen was broken and we could not shut the cupboard door. The outside table and chairs were filthy with dirt all over them. It looked as though previous guests had used this room as a party place. I have always had nice stays at the Sebel in other locations and being an Accor hotel we decided to spend the extra money to stay with them. We were also disappointed with the pool. The photos on Wotif show an outdoor roof top pool but this is not the case. When we asked at reception for access to the roof top pool the lady said they didn't have one and sent us to the indoor pool. This was a shame as the pool was the reason we stayed at the Sebel over another place nearby.

The building is a rabbit warren and difficult to navigate with bags/stairs/parking etc Not user friendly nor was the layout of the property communicated adequately leaving us locked out/ lost on several occasions. Frustrating.
