Margate by the beach

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

JonesyNavy Business - 10/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Wonderful facility in a lovely area of north Brisbane. The beach is clean & great for the family, The location is very central to shops & restaurants. The Sebel is a lovely smallish hotel but has friendly staff & a great restaurant.

Dear JonesyNavy, Thank you so much for your brilliant review in regards to our staff and Margate Beach House restaurant. We will share your comments to all staff and our food and beverage team. We are pleased that you enjoyed the location of our hotel and what the beautiful Margate area has to offer. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, The Management Team

Disie54 Business - 26/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

This is my second stay at Sebel Brisbane Margate Beach and I will stay again. Rooms are spacious, clean and quiet and front rooms have ocean view. There is a mini bar and room service available. The Margate Beach restaurant (front ocean views) is attached to the hotel so easy to pop down for breakfast or dinner-I have only had breakfast but it was delicious and lots of options-the coffee is great too. Staff at Reception are friendly as is restaurant staff. Secure parking available at no extra cost. Walking distance to other places to eat or just a few minutes drive to other shops

Dear Disie, Thank you very much for your positive review with regards to our spacious room, cleanliness standard and the privileged of our location has to offer. We will share your nice comments to our Reception and Food & Beverage team. We look forward welcoming you back in near future. Best regards, The Management team

Dissappointing stay

Departure58083653523 Couples - 24/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

Disappointed with the face of the hotel - reception staff - little or no interest in the guests!! not just us, other guests felt the same. Why ask in booking information,purpose of the stay if staff are not bothered or even interested! Only good thing I would recommend, is that the food is good in the restaurant.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us and please accept my sincere apologies for the issues you experienced with our reception team. Your comments have been shared with our Rooms Division Manager for follow up as this is not up to our usual standard and will pass on your positive comment to our Food & Beverage team. We hope that you will return to give us a chance to serve you better and hopefully exceed your expectations. Best regards, The Management team

Great location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Culture50497534552 Couples - 31/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great view from our room and location is in walking distance to Suttons Beach, shops, Cafes & Restaurants. We had a Junior Suite and was disappointed. A large room but the layout was not practical. You could not watch TV from the lovely leather sofa as it was located under the TV. Huge scratch marks across the floor. A big wide open space in the middle of the room but the dining table was squeezed right next to the bed and kitchen.The bathroom was clinical and the door didn't close properly. The air con switches off when you open a door so if one person wants to sit on the balcony and the other in the room you have to manually turn it back on which was a nuisance. It was a Sunday night on a long weekend and the Rooftop Bar and Restaurant closed early. Even though there were still staff available they made us feel like everything was just too much of a bother.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and my most sincere apologies that your stay did not meet your expectations. At Sebel Margate we aim to exceed our guest’s expectations and on this occasion, it is clear that we have failed to deliver. I have shared your feedback with our Food & Beverage Management team to further improve the service provided.

A few glaring shortcomings

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

GlenysLouise Solo travel - 24/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

The biggest bug bare was only one very slow, quite small lift that would sail past my floor regularly and waiting in hot hallways for a cantankerous lift wasn’t fun. No trolleys to cart luggage added to that frustration. Then a pool requiring complete overhaul with no warning wasn’t fun to wake up to - electric drills, hammers etc from very early in the morning was horrible. Then again waiting for the tiny lift and being in it as it carted tradespeople with buckets of mess from the pool was interesting. There was a very small notice on reception desk apologising for the inconvenience- woefully inadequate. And no offer of anything to recompense for this - not even a free coffee! There was also quite limited secure parking. This was all a real shame as the small hotel was nicely done out in other ways.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience at our hotel.

Nice place to stay - Dinner menu & Quality food not up to Accor standard

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Trek41915395903 Couples - 16/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Rooms well appointed. Side city/beach view. Would have been better design if bedhead on other wall re relaxing in bed and seeing view.No gift on arrival and mentioned to staff on two occasions (this has always happened from other establishments with Accor. Staff very pleasantReception desk delay on arrival. Lift extremely slowBreakfast menu and Quality of food was good. Dinners were not same standard as Breakfast.Dinners – Steak grisly, fat pieces and served rare instead of medium Blood over plate. Squid was like rubber batter terribleOverall hotel was untidy in lots of areas. Advertising frames in lift empty…. Bottom storeroom in full view of customers in car park untidy. Crockery uncovered and exposed to car fumes and grime./chairs etcRestaurant not cleaned during early hours prior to breakfast being served Floors dirty Menus very grubby and shabby After point out to pleasant waitress she said oh that does look bad I shall sort them out today.Rooftop area plants need attending. Although affected by seaside conditions this hotel should select or care for plants, trim and sweep dead leaves.

Beautiful rooms and ocean views

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

bexstaar Couples - 31/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

I was so pleasantly surprised with the interior design of the room, it was beachy and modern - and very much not what I’d expect from a Sebel. Although we stayed just one night, it was comfortable and had everything we needed including secure car parking. The highlight was being able to open the balcony doors, turn on the ceiling fan and enjoy a hotel room sleep with fresh air. I would definitely stay again.

Dear Guest, It is absolutely lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the room products, thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us. We look forward to welcome you back next time you are visiting Margate. Best regards, The Management team

A nice hotel by the seaside

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

robynmck2016 Couples - 11/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

Some very nice aspects to this hotel. Upgrade to a water-facing room was great. The room was well-equipped and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was great too - well cooked and presented and pleasant staff in the restaurant. A few issues though. The male receptionist was Margate's Basil Fawlty. Checkin took 10 minutes as he argued loudly on the phone with a previous guest about a deposit. ABC TV didn't work , the aircon kept turning off and the ironing board kept collapsing - downright dangerous - but nothing was sorted and there was a string of excuses why they couldn't be fixed. (none of them were, by the way). Oh, and he made it sound like it was all our fault. Odd. Would we go back? Yes. On balance, a very nice couple of days.

Dear Roby, Thank you so much for your feedback and I am glad that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. I am very sorry about the TV channel, ironing board placement that is not in consistent in your room, this is not up to our usual standard and s I can understand that you felt frustrated. I have shared your comments with Housekeeping Management team. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back once again. Best regards, The Management team

Ryan_Gardner Couples - 07/11/2018 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is in a lovely location with excellent facilities and services. We use the courtesy bikes walk along the waterfront and enjoyed many a meal in the restaurant. I would reccomed this hotel to anyone looking for a nice quite holiday location. If you have kids the water at the door and council facilities a short walk up the waterfront are excellent.

Hi Ryan, It was so great to read your positive review of our hotel. We appreciate you taking the time to give us such a lovely review and hope to welcome you back in the very near future. Fabian Koh, General Manager

Short stay

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

jaorames Couples - 24/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

We chose this hotel as it wasn't far from home for a short break from the routine. We loved it because it was a smaller hotel , staff were friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant was great, especially the chicken spring rolls.

Hi Jaorames, It was so great to read your positive review of the hotel and restaurant. We appreciate you taking the time to give us such a lovely review and hope to welcome you back in the very near future. Fabian Koh, General Manager

BEAUTIFUL NEW HOTEL AND GREAT LOCATION BUT THEIR INHOUSE SYSTEMS NEED REVIEWING

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

warls Family - 13/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is in a great location within the Redcliffe area and the rooms are beautifully decorated. I had a room with a double bed and a single bed and the room was very spacious. I was surprised that the room included a small kitchenette with microwave that was well stocked with plates, cups, glasses, etc. The cons for this hotel is that the parking provided is tandem but most people parked in the front which meant if the carpark was full you couldn't get to the spare park behind. Also, if you did park behind someone Reception do not take your keys to shift the vehicle should the other vehicle wish to get out, so you were left wondering at what time of the day/night you were going to receive a call to shift your vehicle - this is not satisfactory. Over the weekend was the main problem, so in this instance I chose to park the vehicle on the street. During the week parking was not a problem. I was told on check-in that they were looking at putting a valet person in place. This definitely needs to be looked at as the current setup is not feasible. The other negative was I added the $1 breakfast for my stay as I had experienced this at the Sebel in Perth and it was a very good deal which included a full buffet breakfast so assumed it would be the same at Sebel Margate. This is not the case and if you have pre-booked the add-on of a $1 breakfast it is a separate menu to their normal breakfast menu with 3 items only available to you which includes a glass of orange juice. The staff in the restaurant need some major training as there was absolutely no consistency, and at times we waited around and were totally ignored - it doesn't take much to acknowledge that you are standing there waiting and say, we will be with you in a moment, but this never happened. There was also no set procedure regarding our breakfast package and each morning it was handled differently. Only one morning did they have a list of room numbers who had pre-booked breakfast and my room was crossed off, on the other mornings, depending which staff member was on at the time, I had to explain what I had pre-purchased, etc. so that I didn't end up with extras added to my bill.

Dear Warls, Thank you for raising your concerns following your recent visit to our hotel. We are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations and have taken your valid comments on board regarding the undercover parking and we are currently working on a better outcome for our guests. I would also like to apologise if our promotional $1 breakfast did not meet your expectations in particular with respect to the customer service aspects of your breakfast dining on each day of your recent stay. We strive to provide our in-house guests with a consistent high level of service and I extend my apologies if we did not meet this standard of customer service on your recent stay. Fabian Koh General Manager

A short stay in the popular Sebel Margate, many diners, drinkers at the new venue. Rooms were very good, clean and quiet. Car park is difficult, bad design. Staff helpful and courteous. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Scragger 1, It was terrific to receive your feedback following your recent visit to our hotel., particularly relating to the helpfulness of our staff, I have passed on your positive remarks to our enthusiastic team.

Our new favourite mini break destination

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

lucy904 Couples - 22/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

Enough has been written about the obvious great location, no need to repeat all this. We really enjoyed our stay at The Sebel & it could easily become a favourite for a mini break. I have Accor platinum membership & all the benefits were honoured, which was appreciated. At some Accor properties you almost have to go ‘cap in hand’ to ask for your welcome drink voucher. We booked a deluxe king ocean front & were given a corner room with big balcony, a fruit platter was delivered to the room. It’s good to see the bar & café/restaurant open all day. We had dinner there three nights & enjoyed every one. Good variety on the menu, from mains, snacks, things to share etc.There are a few peculiarities about this room which I’d like to point out. The king bedroom itself was really spacious, however, the bathroom by comparison was tiny. There was no vanity space to speak of so I had to put my toiletries on the kitchenette bench outside. The hand basin was miniscule, the tap spout high, you can’t bend over to the sink to rinse your mouth without hitting your head on the mirror, the depth (from vanity front edge to the wall) would be 30cm at most. Water splashes everywhere, including over the toilet roll. I don’t know who designed this set up, but they obviously have never done a road test on it. On the plus side, the big shower recess is perfect. I suggest someone in management takes their toothbrush to work one day & tries this bathroom out for themselves. I did look in another room which was being cleaned next door & it has a bigger bathroom with a normal vanity & basin, much better than ours.The leather sofa may look very cool but it’s so low you’re nearly sitting on the floor. The television is hung high on the wall & on an angle so you can’t watch it from the sofa anyway. Does everyone just watch TV in bed nowadays??The work desk is more like a hall table in my opinion, just as miniscule in depth as the bathroom vanity. Okay for a laptop but you can’t spread a newspaper out.These are just our negatives on this particular corner room. In no way will it impact our decision to return to the Sebel, I’d just request a non-corner room. In all other regards we cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. Friendly, young & accommodating staff all round. We look forward to going back. Unfortunately, our next Accor mini break at Pt Macquarie was already booked & paid & cannot be cancelled, otherwise we’d be back to Margate Beach before Christmas.
