The Sebel, Chatswood, Sydney, Australia

And this weeks winner of Gavin’s “another hotel of the week” award is The Sebel in Chatswood in Sydney.

Chatswood is just just up the Pacific Highway from North Sydney and St Leonards, where one of our Sydney offices is, so its pretty handy.

I have stayed at the Sebel once before, probably 4 or 5 years ago.

The room, well suite really, was massive. It had a living room, bed room, kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Quite wasteful really as I was in the room for just under 16 hours.

Apart from that its a pretty standard hotel / serviced apartment.

On the downside the Internet connection didn’t work at all. Thank God I had my 3G wireless card on me, and reception was good.

If you were staying in Sydney for a while and you wanted a decent apartment then this would be a good place to stay. Its pretty much right on top of the Chatwood shopping centre as well, which is handy.

If you need to work in the CBD you still can’t go past the InterContinental. Though it only takes around 15 to 20 minutes to get into the CBD from Chatswood at around 9:30am.
