Great place to stay in a great part of the world
There has always only been one place to stay in Maroochydore whenever I've visited in the past. I'm talking about The Sebel. It's earned its 4.5 stars for a reason and I'm about to show you why.
Welcome to The Sebel
Welcome to The Sebel

As we all know, location is everything. It's 7km from the Sunshine Coast Airport, it's 90 minutes drive north of Brisbane and it sits on a commanding beachfront position directly opposite Maroochydore Beach and Esplanade. The building itself stands out from the rest in the area you'll know when you're looking up from out the front.

Accommodation-wise you have a choice of one or two bedroom apartments and penthouses. Facing north, you'll have excellent views of the Maroochydore Beach, Maroochy River and Mount Coolum. The rooms themselves are contemporary and luxurious. They come with fully equipped kitchen with stone-topped benches, dishwasher, microwave and European appliances, fully equipped laundry, air-conditioning, separate living and dining areas, two bathrooms (for all apartments), en suite bathroom with spa bath, internet access, furnished balconies and master bedrooms with access to the balcony. You'll be treated here with 24 hour reception, housekeeping every third night and complimentary undercover carp parking.

The penthouses are something to behold. These two-level fully self contained apartments come with a private rooftop spa and barbecue, automatic coffee machine with complimentary freshly ground coffee beans, complimentary internet access and complimentary bottled mineral water on arrival, beside all the usuals you can expect here.

If you've got a couple of kids tagging along you'll be happy to know about a few of the recreational facilities. There's a 25 metre podium level pool, a children's pool, a rooftop spa and a barbecue area.

There is also plenty to do if you're in the area. Beautiful Cotton Tree is just a short walk north, the Sunshine Plaza including shops, restaurants, cinemas is just up the road while Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba Beach and Esplande are a two minute car ride away south. It's also a short 30 minute drive up to Noosa Heads.

There are also plenty of nearby dining options available. For breakfast or lunch I'd recommend The Beach Street Deli opposite the Maroochy SLSC. Mikki's Gourmet Food and Wine Bar is a personal favourite of mine for breakfast, lunch, but especially dinner. For a cup of coffee check out Cafe Venice just downstairs, or if you're up for a walk try out Caffeine Culture. You will find plenty of other options here.

If your visit to the Sunshine Coast is for businesses and (unfortunately) not pleasure then you'll find adequate facilities whatever your business may be. The Sebel is also great for conferences, meetings, seminars and even work Christmas parties. The conference room can fit up to 100 guests and can open up to an outdoor courtyard. Equipment at your disposal include flipcharts, whiteboards as well as TV, VCR and DVD equipment. The room is fully automated with audio visual equipment including a ceiling mounted data projector, screen, lighting and sound system. As an alternative, the hotel also offers a 'large terrace' apartments for small meetings, cocktail parties or a breakaway room. I've been a guest in one of these rooms not too long in the past it was outstanding.
It's an impressive structure and it certainly stands out

Maroochydore really is the centre of the Sunshine Coast and The Sebel has to sit amongst the best places to stay if you're visiting the area.
