Had a long weekend visit and not our first either. Upgraded to a harbour view room. Which was a nice view in the distance and pleasant to look at on the small balcony. Sliding doors were double glazed so even the wedding down stairs did not give us any problems when sleeping. Large room, good bed, pillows a little soft.... More

The hotel incorporates the original Kiama school, which is used as one of its function rooms. Despite being a large complex, on the whole it fits in with the gentle "village" atmosphere of this delightful seaside town, and is situated on Black beach and the little harbour. It is a good starting point for a walking exploration of the town,... More

We had flown down from Cairns to Sydney and then taken the costal route to Kiama. We were staying for only 1 night on our road trip along the coast to Melbourne. When we arrived at our room it was spacious with a sizeable bed. We look out to our balcony which unfortunately looked over a railway line. Not the... More

Stayed for a conference. Staff were wonderful, food was wonderful. Organisation of the conference seemed to be done very well. It is in a fantastic location - takes advantage of picturesque Kiama. My only gripe was trying to work out the lifts!!!!!!! I didn't find it overly noisy and the bed was so comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

We booked the Sebel for our anniversary as it looked beautiful. The week before our departure I read some of the reviews about how noisy the hotel was and some other concerning items. Our experience was the total opposite. Friendly but unobtrusive staff, a great view and triple glazed doors and windows which made it very quiet - even though... More

Great hotel, very nice room....let down slightly by poor service, having to wait over an hour for a hamburger and instant coffee being served at breakfast. Some confusion over how the wireless network was configured but overall these were minor niggles and we enjoyed our stay

Went here for a work conference. Really nice location overlooking the water. I can't comment on the rate as I didn't pay. Room was large with balcony overlooking train line, park and across to main street. Water view would be nicer but at a cost I'm sure. The balcony door was well soundproofed so you couldn't hear the trains when... More

There are lots of pluses in staying here. The location (we were able to walk around the town to cafes for breakfast and restaurants for dinner), free undercover parking, decent sized room, comfy bed and feels very clean. The "bar" (local pub) is at the end of a bit of a trek and overlooks the harbour - but is a... More
