We had one night here over the Australia Day weekend. The price was horrific but that is usual for long weekends. It is around 2 hours drive south of Sydney and located less than 5 mins walk from the main street of Kiama. There seem to be two distinct wings with rooms 402 and 502 apparently twin rooms and good... More

Great location.Food moderate quality in bistro.Cockroaches seen when walking up steps into hotel. A first for us despite extensive travels other tropical climates. Still charge for Internet access in 2015, and 1.5% for credit card use unlike small traders within the town.

This is a review for a two bedroom apartment. Pluses are the excellent location of the hotel, and the well equipped and comfortable rooms & beds. Also we enjoyed our meals in the excellent bar/restaurant attached to the hotel. We appreciated the relaxed checkout time of 11.00 am. Minuses - expensive. We paid >$400 for a night. Our advertised "ground... More

The Sebel is a lovely hotel, but we paid through the roof for an upgrade to an ocean view room. When we arrived the room was huge, balcony also large and the view of the ocean was only partial. We rung reception and Jemma came and took us to another room, which was full ocean view and was all good.... More

Whilst heading north after our stay in Canberra and Batemans bay, the rain had set in so we decided to stay the night in Kiama. After looking at various hotels in the area, on our mobile phone, we decided to book in to the Sebel. As we approached our destination we noticed the hotel in the distance. The location had... More

The location and view were awesome. Front desk staff could not be nicer. Sadly, it's the 'creature comforts' that lets this property down. The split system air con in room 301 is too small for the layout of this room and in 2 days, IT NEVER GOT COOL!! Unbelievably, there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom!! After a shower,... More

Paid 399 per night for harbour view room with balcony and kitchenette. Good points : great view, comfortable bed, full bathroom. Bad points :air conditioner rattled all night but had to be used because there was no fly screen on the patio door to prevent bugs. Therefore, no sleep; bath tub so tiny only a small person could use it;... More
