Stayed here for 2 nights while on a work trip. The location is great with views over the harbour and walking distance to the centre of town.. Meals were very good and not too expensive. Although located next to the train line, I didnt here any trains due to the double doors. Staff were friendly and facility was very neat and tidy. Would definetly stay again.

I would say that if you belong to Accor loyalty scheme you will be disappointed as 'the management have not committed to allow the scheme to operate. So, no inclusive WiFi or other benefits. On arrival we were given a room facing the railway and next to one that was being repainted. I went to reception to see if it was possible to get WiFi and I happened to mention my disappointment. Immediately I was offered a different room, taken to see if it was acceptable and everything moved. The two staff on afternoon duty were very good at their jobs and had excellent customer care skills. Shame that the management don't care enough to join loyalty scheme and offer WiFi in rooms and perhaps some comfortable chairs in reception.

Room Tip: Make sure nit facing railway line.

Stayed for 2 nights in a standard room at this hotel. Check in was fast and efficient, pleasant staff on the desk. The room was a lot smaller than what i had expected, but it was clean and had a lovely small balcony with table and 2 chairs. Unfortunately we did not have a view of the water, but it was still a pleasant enough outlook over the bar/courtyard area. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, and we slept very well. Bathroom was quite a good size, and clean. The toiletries supplied were beautiful and luxurious, a brand i had not used before but am now a fan of! These were replaced daily (yayy!). I was disappointed at how impractical the bathroom was. It had a full sized bath with shower over it, however it was a VERY large step up and over to actually get into the shower, and no rails to hang on to. I did feel quite unsteady at times whilst getting in /out, and this would be totally unacceptable for the elderly/those with mobility issues. (and i am a long way from old and decrepit!). Water pressure was ok and shower head was a good size. There was NO bench space or storage in the bathroom at all. The vanity was a single stand - no cupboards or bench space. There were a few very small shelves, but that was it! Nowhere to put toothbrush/hairbrush/cosmetics/lotions and all the bits and pieces i like to travel with and spread out in the bathroom wherever i am staying. There was a clothes cupboard with hanging space next to the bed, plus a few drawers. The cupboard contained an iron (ironing board kept in the bathroom) but surprisingly no bathrobes. Location of this hotel is excellent - walking distance to the harbour, shops and cafes. Breakfast in the dining room had a good selection, hot and cold, and the staff here were superb. The view is breathtaking, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water/harbour across the street. Parking is off-street and underground, which was a bonus. I was a little surprised that there was no swimming pool. Overall, a very nice hotel in the heart of Kiama.

This is the second time we have stayed in the hotel and we really enjoyed our stay in The Sebel in Kiama. Staff are courteous and friendly. Rooms are big and clean. Very near the shops , rockpool and the famous blowhole!

There are lots of positives about this hotel. Happy cheerful reception. Good sized rooms with views of the bay from the bed. Clean and tidy bathrooms. Great value evening meals with excellent views from the dining room over the bay. Even better views from the breakfast area which is above the main dining area and bar. Excellent car park under the hotel.
What's not to like about this place, well it's just the small things. Do check when you book either directly with the hotel or through a third party that you get what you think your getting, particularly make sure you get a bay view room and not a road view at the side of the hotel. Check that breakfast is included (if that's what you want). I found it just a little annoying to find that what I thought I'd booked through a third party was in fact not the case and that all these little extras, like breakfast, the correct room etc. we're not included in the price I'd paid.
There are many good and diverse restaurant within walking distance of the hotel and lots to see and do in this small town.
