“My 60th Birthday Short Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This was our 5th visit to the Sebel Harbour Side at Kiama. My Husband and I were celebrating my 60th Birthday and decided to go away for four days to Kiama. My Sister phone the Hotel the day before my Birthday and was told that the Hotel always gave the guest a Birthday Card. My Sister asked if they could do something special because it was my 60th and the Hotel left the Birthday Card and a complimentary bottle of wine on the small dining room table. What a really nice surprise. I thanked the staff and then sent an email to Daniel the Manager.

We had a lovely stay as usual in the balcony room as this is the room that my Husband prefers as you can sit out on the balcony and read.

Great place to stay and so much to do we always go down to Berry for a couple of hours on the train there is lots to see at Berry.

Planning another trip in November 2012 to stay at the Sebel Harbour Side at Kiama again.

Room Tip: We like the balcony room as you can leave the door open for some fresh air, and sit on the balcony a...

We wanted to get out of the city for a weekend break. The Sebel delivered a lot more than we expected. Very comfortable spacious modern luxury room with king bed. Reasonably priced. Lovely staff, very helpful. A relaxing break with everything within walking distance.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and comfortable

Stayed at Sebel Harbourside August 25 for a short family getwaway.
The deal was via a Sydney Weekender special offer which also included breakfast, $40 food and beverage voucher and a $40 Endota Spa voucher.
The hotel is in a lovely location with the bar area overlooking the sea and views towards the lighthouse.
Stayed in a family room as we took our 13 year old son with us.
The room was huge. King size bed and 2 single beds.
Nice bathroom but a little difficult to get into the shower as it was over the bathtub which was a bit high.
Our room didn't really have a view, except back towards the train line.
It was quiet even so despite the occassional train coming through.
The buffet breakfast was fine, basic food; eggs, baked beans, sausages, fruit, cereal, toast, juice etc.
Ididn't use the spa voucher as the Endota Spa is off site but did have to the end of August to use it.
Free parking is a bonus.

Room Tip: Spacious family room.

We were very happy with our stay. We were upgraded for free to a king room with a balcony, which was great. The buffet breakfast was wonderful and the staff and service were excellent I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

The most quiet hotel I have ever stayed in. Got a good deal via email promotion. (but booking process was confusing and not clear, so ended up having to ring to check) however no record of the deal on arrival, but staff honoured the deal anyway. Upgraded to a Large executive room. Partial view of sea (hotel is slightly back from the street). Lovely dark quiet rooms, new and clean and spacious. But Bed way too hard. Large flat screen tv, but USB function disabled. If you want Internet forget it. We had a free internet deal, but no wireless Internet in rooms, only foyer. Broadband Internet by Ethernet cable only. Very expensive if not on a free deal. Upload and download allowance very limiting. Offered free movies, but we were allowed only one. The staff were friendly and smiley, but we were made to feel we had done something wrong by getting the deal and were told, "we are not going to make any money out of this". I wanted to ask if they preferred we stay somewhere else then. Was made to feel like a second class guest. Not matter how nicely the staff say it, it still made an awkward situation.  Breakfast was worth the extra $10.00 special they offer to guests. The restaurant food was delicious and the pizza worth a try!

I was very pleased with the stay that I had recently at the Sebel Harbourside Hotel, Kiama. It was conveniently located in the heart of Kiama and nice to stay somewhere with free parking provided. Service from the staff was of a high standard. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to be granted a complimentary upgrade in our room. Our package also included a lovely complimentary breakfast. I would certainly stay at the Sebel again if going to Kiama.
