We stayed here over the Oct Day long weekend, the check in was very quick, about 2 mins max! I thought this was pretty good. The hotel has free parking which is also good. We booked a family room, which doesnt provide much of a view (ours was over the train line) the room is very quite, but lacks an in-room safe - either that or I couldnt find it. In room dining options not that great, and the breakfast far too expensive! there is a microwave and hot plates in this room and overall the room is a bit bland.

It is close to kiama shops and the blowhole

Overall I would recommend this as a good weekend getaway, however I wouldnt stay there considering the price, and would opt for something cheaper.

Dear SydneyKhan,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us.

We were really busy over the long weekend so I am glad to hear that your check in was quick. We have limited rooms that have a harbour/ocean view but please ask reception when you make your next booking as we would be happy to provide one if available. They are popular so it is a matter of getting in quickly to secure one.

I note your comment about the in room dining. Without knowing what you ordered it is hard to investigate however I will speak with the head chef to make sure orders are sent within time and that we deliver good quality meals.

We don't have safes in our rooms however guests can leave valuables at reception which is open 24 hours, the items can be accessed at all times.

I hope that you will consider staying with us again as we would love to welcome you again in the future.

Regards,

Pamela McCabe
General Manager

Stayed here overnight and wished we were staying longer.

The reception area was well appointed and attractive and check in was quick and efficient. We asked and paid for an ocean view room in advance. The room was a decent size with a king size bed and large flat screen tv. Surprisingly it also had a kitchen. The large bathroom was very smartly appointed with an oversize shower stall and snow white fluffy towels.

The bed was very comfortable and I loved being able to see the ocean out the window in the morning. The room had a large balcony with a small table and 2 chairs. The only thing I didn’t like was that the balcony ran the whole side of the hotel and all the rooms opened on to it. The only separation along the balcony was a couple of pot plants where one room finished and another started which made for a distinct lack of privacy, particularly given anyone could easily walk along the whole length of the balcony.

A hot buffet breakfast was included in the tariff and the offer of champagne with breakfast was an unexpected but welcome bonus. The large breakfast room was very bright with a fabulous view of the ocean.

The whole place felt fresh and new but really in this day and age free wifi is expected particularly given the cost of the room which wasn’t cheap.
Overall, a very pleasant stay and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour facing room

Hello!
Last night my family and I ate at the restaurant. It was a wonderful dining experience. Thank you. The service was excellent ,considering it was a Saturday night, a wedding reception taking place and a huge birthday party. Being a vegetarian among 3 meat eaters I resign myself to mediocre food but I was tastefully surprised as were the carnivores:) we ordered dessert all three of them were delicious. Well done to the chef on the night who mindfully popped out of thf kitchen a few times to check on the diners who were enjoying his food and mostly too busy to notice him. I did though! We will be back and will recommend to our friends.

Dear SeanSean14,

Thank you for sharing your dining experience in the Blue Diamond Bar & Bistro. Your comments will be passed onto the kitchen staff who will be thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your meals. I am glad that you noticed the chef walking through the restaurant and I hope you had a chance to talk to him. He is very passionate about food and at times is very busy as you mentioned with functions and weddings happening on the same day/night but strives to put out great food to all of our guests.

We all look forward to having you dine with us again soon.
