Mandurah is a great place for a weekend away with kids as there is so much to do in the area. We recently had a weekend staying overnight at The Sebel on the Mandurah waterfront. It was the perfect base for our family getaway as we could walk the along the foreshore to the cafes or the foreshore playground. It was also an easy short walk across to Dolphin Quay and Keith Holmes Playground.
We had a room with a private balcony and a waterfront view. When booking we were told they would make up the sofa bed at no extra charge for our daughter. Even with the sofa bed there was enough room and having the balcony gave us that bit of extra space. Our daughter enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the boats on the estuary and the people below.
Our room had a large and very comfortable king-size bed and a sofa bed.
The bathroom was spacious with a large bath and separate shower.
Due to COVID restrictions all minibar had been removed but they still had the tea and coffee facilities. If you were staying longer than a night there is plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space.
The hotel is easy to access, the entry is off Marco Polo drive. There is short term parking at the front so you can check-in and get your bags out. Actual parking is in the free public parking adjacent to the hotel. The hotel offers an online check-in option which I completed so all that was required when we arrived was to get the key and provide a credit card for room deposit.
The hotel offered a small breakfast menu option, at the moment it is only available on weekends. We chose to walk to Dolphin Quay and have breakfast at Cafe Moka. There are plenty of restaurant and cafe options nearby with The Pen Bar and Restaurant right next door. There is also a fitness centre in the hotel but we didn’t use this facility.
Your room key gives you access to the entry door straight onto the boardwalk. After we had checked in we went straight downstairs and had a walk around the point and across to Simmo’s icecream, around to the foreshore playground. The walkways are very accessible and there is plenty to see along the way. Unfortunately, we didn’t see dolphins this time but have seen them at the point on previous visits.
The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly, the location was great and we really enjoyed our little break in Mandurah.
